Recovery Media


OEMs who use Microsoft Embedded are required by Microsoft (under the terms of the Customer License Agreement) to deliver the Embedded OS preinstalled on the system.
The OEM is also permitted to create media for Image Recovery, Update or Field Upgrade.
Creating the Image disk can only be done by the OEM or by a Microsoft Authorized Replicator (AR).

Avnet has partnered with several Microsoft Authorized Replicators and can supply the OEM with the Image Media, making sure that the media meets the guidelines set by Microsoft. Pictured above is an example showing how the media should be printed. OEMs wishing to get their artwork approved should contact the Microsoft team at
