The law regarding restore discs / options

  keewaa 12:15 16 Nov 05

Are PC suppliers required by law to supply restore / reinstall disc or recovery partitions so that the user has a means of reinstalling in case of a failure? When some charge for these, is that legal?

I don't think there is a legal requirement - some barebones systems for instance have no operating system provided.

But in any case I'd avoid any supplier who wouldn't supply the means to at least return your system back to its basic state.
