Symantec recommends that a custom Symantec System Recovery Disk is created, even if driver validation succeeds, and Symantec System Recovery Disk appears to work. A custom Symantec System Recovery Disk contains, from the system it was created upon, current network and storage device drivers. This helps to ensure that in an emergency the system's recovery points are able to be restored. Depending upon product version, a custom Symantec System Recovery Disk can be created on a CD/DVD or on a USB device.
NOTE: After creating a custom Symantec System Recovery Disk, it can be the source for creating another custom Symantec System Recovery Disk on additional systems.
Windows based systems
