HP Pavilion M7-1015dx Recovery :: System Backup Image Vs System Recovery Discs?

Sep 12, 2012

I just purchased a new Pavilion m7-1015dx Laptop and need to make the System Recovery Discs ... (which I realize restores the Laptop to factory default).. btw, I've already created the System Repair Disc.
 
However, I read an article about creating a System Backup Image that allows you to Recovery EVERYTHING if lost, all your installed programs, etc.
 
First Question ::: if I do the System Backup IMAGE ... Do I still need to create the System Recovery disc's (mfg's default) also??
 
The Second Question ::: If I create the System Recovery discs do I still need that Recovery Partition ??
 
I am really really wanting to partition my C: drive ... it's huge plus I hate seeing storage folders intermingled with system folders .. Currently using a Symbol/Character to separate them.
 
As of now, I can't partition the C:drive as all partitions are used.. max is 4 and I've got 4 .... C:drive,   System Partition,   HPTools Partition, and   Recovery Partition.

Acer Aspire 4752 :: Complete Operating System Setup Process Before Doing System Recovery

Sep 17, 2014

Came to a point when I should completely restore the OS on my Acer Aspire 4752. Neither through Alt+F10 nor through eRecovery am I able to get around a Notice with the following "please complete operating system setup process before doing system recovery". There is only one option of this notice, that is to ok it and then the current Windows 7 Home Premium OS starts and I am not able to get out of this viscous circle. The OS works and is completely set up, so I do not understand what am I prompted to do. I see a number of postings out there, but no solution. Local Acer does not seem to know anything about the problem nor it's existence.

HP Split 13 X2 Recovery :: Cannot Perform System Recovery

Oct 1, 2014

Model: HP Slpit 13 x2 PC
Product: E8C34UA#ABA
 
Operating system: Windows 8 64 bit
 
It is still covered under warranty.
 
My problem: about a month ago (maybe a little more) my machine automatically did an update, and after it was complete I was able to get to the sign in screen but once I was signed on I had nothing but a black screen and my cursor. I could not pull up the task manager or perform any functions. I was able to restore my machine to a previous date and used it again for about a week before the update ran again and the exact same thing happened. The second time around I did not have any restore points that were prior to the update so a system restore did absolutely no good. I booted in safe mode and tried to do a clean boot to see if something may have been preventing the update from completing properly but no luck.
 
I then tried a system recovery and it failed, I don't recall what it said about why it failed but now all it does when I start it up is makes me choose a Keyboard layout and then choose an option between "Continue; exit and continue to HP Recovery Manager" "Use a Device" "Use another Operating system" "troubleshoot" and "turn off your PC."

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 :: Create Set Of System Recovery

Mar 11, 2014

I have created a set of "System Recovery" (Reinstall Disk) DVD's for my inspiron 15 7000 laptop.I removed the traditional Sata HD from the laptop and installed Samsung Evo 840 SSD. Connected an external DVD drive and booted using the System Recovery Disk 1.

The files started loading but after half were loaded gave error of something like 0x8xxxxxx and asked to reboot. The same error occurred after another reboot.The Recovery Disk are fine as i have verified them using dell backup software.Also is it possible to create Dell Recovery partition (O/S and drivers e.t.c) somehow on the new SSD if i install Windows 8 using the OEM disk straight away?

Dell Inspiron N5050 :: Password Required After System Recovery

Jan 4, 2013

I was formatting dell inspiron N5050, first we created recovery disks, I tried to do a system recovery first off the partition, after which I was recieveing a BSOD, so I used the recovery disk we created to do the system recovery again this time there was no BSOD however after it said it was setting up windows for first use, it brought me to a log in screen with no user name, asking for a user name and password. It will not accept any of my friends old user names and passwords, I am unable to log into the administrator, and I am unable to log into safe mode cause it needs to set up windows 7 for the first use. How can we log into windows?

My laptop is a Sony Vaio VGN-FS115B. When I bought it 4 years ago the operating system was all in German until yesterday when I decided to change it into English.

Dell Latitude 6540 :: Operating System Recovery Options - No Media

Nov 21, 2014

I would like to buy a Dell Latitude 6540  and have found out the following statement in the configuration: 

‚ÄúOperating System Recovery Options:¬† no media‚ÄĚ. ¬†¬†

It also says:  "Dell Backup and Recovery:  Dell Backup and Recovery Basic"

I think this means that I will not get a recovery disk along with the system.

If  so, I wonder how  I can re-load the system in case I need it for whatever reason (for example how can re-format the HD if I need it to?)

Dell Inspiron 15R-5521 :: System Protection Settings Following USB Factory Recovery

Mar 12, 2013

I have an annoying problem with a Dell 15R-5521 Windows 8 laptop. I tried to do a factory image system recovery via the pre-installed "Dell Backup and Recovery" application. It indicated that the machine would be restarted, however it simply booted back into Windows, as per a normal reboot. I tried this several times, with the same result each time.

I had previously created recovery media on a 16GB USB flash drive, so booted it from this instead. I chose the "Factory Recovery - Deletes data & resets all partitions" option. The process completed successfully, and everything appeared to be fine, however when I looked at the System Protection tab I saw the following.

Protection Settings Available Drives    Protection OS (C:) (System) Off?Volume{da47ae8b-20ce-4f8a-8... OffOC (C:) (Missing) On

I've Googled but I can't find anything about this anywhere.

Acer :: Tried Performing A System Recovery On My Laptop

May 24, 2010

I tried performing a system recovery on my laptop. After it was finished, I received an error stating "The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error.

Windows installation cannot proceed.To install windows, click ok to restart the computer, and then restart the installation." Then, after restarting, the computer begins to boot, but brings me to a screen "/noexecute=optin" "edit boot options for microsoft windows vista. Path: windowssystem32winload.exe". Alt+F10 then brings me to a Change boot device screen, giving me the option between my hard drive and CD/DVD ROM drive. My laptop is not under warranty any more, and I do not have recovery discs, nor can I afford them. What can I do to either boot my laptop, or properly recover it?

HP/Compaq :: System Recovery Failed CQ61

Feb 1, 2010

My Compaq Presario CQ61-110SA kept on crashing wiht the blue screen error so yesterday i had some time on my hands so i thought I would do a full system recovery in order to stop this nuisence from happening, however I wish I had read the problems associated with the HP recovery manager first as now I have no OS and a recovery manager that dosn't work.

At the moment I am using the recovry manger pre installed on the hard drive however it gets to installing the drivers, and after about an hour a pop up comes up for about half a second saying a about a driver install or dont install (it looks similair to th etype of pop up on vista when a new program wants to run) however due to it poping up so quickly and then going I cannot see what the actual driver is let alone choose an option, after this it says recovery has failed the error code c:system.savlogsBurnBootwarn.log it states the error was detected during PINIST_BBV , when i opened the log file it seemed all the drivers had succeded but [mini_FBI] resilt failed, I have tried doing the recovery with the wireless button on as I heard this could be the cause but still it didn't work, I have recovery discs that i burned however My laptop wont seem to boot fom disk even though I have changed the BIOS and put harddrive at the bottom and the disc at the top.

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv5 (Vista) System Recovery After Windows 7

Feb 2, 2009

I'm currently using an HP Pavilion dv5-1140 (the white/lime green special edition). It shipped with Vista Home Premium.

I've recently installed Windows 7 to have a quick look at 'what's next', planning on using HP's System Recovery partition (triggered by pressing F11 at startup) to reimage later.

I've been trying to trigger the System Recovery tool at startup (with F11), but it's no longer working properly - the computer 'thinks' for a second and then starts booting into Windows 7.

I'm afraid after using tens of Pavilions in the past two years (I'm a journo), I've got into the lazy habit of using this recovery partition to reimage, not burnt DVDs.

Is there anyway I can get the computer to load the HP Recovery tool now? I'm not looking to recover data - just reimage with Vista HP.
