If i burn a copy on a blank dvd, does it burn and save the exact condition and updates of my current windows 7 installation with the updated service pack and all its updates?

Does it also copy all my softwares and newly installed programs and files?


What happens if i decide to get an SSD, will i be able to use the DVD i made with AI recovery to install windows with the exact same thing i had on my HDD or do i need to do a clean install from scratch?

No, it's a factory clean install.

It will be done from scratch

So the AI recovery if i burn to dvd will just burn the windows 7 installation and service packs and all updates? So that means i can use that same dvd i burn with ai recovery to an SSD right?

what Shawnnepc said.

yes, you can use the same recovery disks to install windows and apps with factory defaults to an ssd, but it is a clean factory state windows (i.e. without any service packs, updates, newly installed programs, and files; ai recovery is not a cloning program. it can only create DVDs based on the factory defaults)
