    Hi, just installed Build 4940, on creating the bootable cd I noted it has two options, FULL and SAFE on creating the CD.
    Do I copy BOTH options on the same disk?
    On using the disk for a recovery do I have to make a choice?, I do not remember this choices with prior releases.
    thanks, I want to make sure before I run a test.

    You can put both on the bootable recovery CD or just the one you want. When it boots up you will be given the choice of which one you want.

    The Full is a Linux environment and contains support for USB, Firewire, networks etc. This is the one that should be used if it runs on the machine.

    The Safe is a DOS variant and does not contain support for USB, Firewire, etc. This one is intended to be used if the Full doesn't start and you don't need USB etc. Users who have run Safe say it works but is very slow. Note that some motherboards will let you access USB via BIOS but this is not the majority of boards.
