HP/Compaq :: HP HDX 16 Recovery Partition

Jan 15, 2010

I recently bought a HP HDX 16 laptop, and today I've created my recovery disks. I also have a recovery partition.

My question is:
If I remove that recovery partition, and go back to the factory installation using my recovery disks, will my recovery partition be back?

I've read that those recovery disks bring your notebook back to the state as it came from the factory, so that would include the recovery partition, right?

HP/Compaq :: Want To Clean Up/format Presario C310 -- Use Recovery Disks Or Recovery Partition?

Aug 30, 2009

Ive just done a clean install of my Dell Vostro -- reinstalling vista and removing the recovery partition in the process. Outcome = a cleaner machine with none of the preinstalled bloatware/c**p from Dell. (first time Ive done anything like this, but followed a brill guide in the Dell section of this forum ).

Im about to tackle my Mums Compaq Presario C310EA. The aim is to remove all the rubbish she has accumulated over the years, incl any spyware/ adware she may have, and generally have a bit of a clean sweep. hopefully resulting in a faster laptop. Im backing up her data, and moving some of my Dads stuff somewhere else.

Basically I want to clean up as much as poss, but unfortunately she has no xp disk, just the recovery disks (cds) she burned when she first got the laptop.

As she has no xp disk I guess the best I can hope for is to reset the laptop to the factory settings (?) .. not ideal, but I dont think the (factory set) bloatware is too much of an issue for her shes not a heavy user.

Should I use the recovery partition for this, or do I need to use the cds she burned? .

Id like to know the best approach and cant seem to find a set of instructions to follow.

HP/Compaq :: Hw To Use Recovery Partition

Oct 28, 2009

I'm thinking of formatting my laptop to restore everything to it's original state(actually kind of have to!) but the problem is that I've never done so via the partition.I used to use the Recovery DVD but since it's broken this is my only choice.So how do I do it and will I need to install the drivers myself after?

HP/Compaq :: 1045EE- Lost My Recovery Partition

May 8, 2009

I bought an HP-DV6 1045EE, but I didn't like the partition scheme..

This was the way it first was:

C:Local Disk [288gb]
D:Recovery [10gb]

C was preloaded with Windows Vista. I shrunk the partition using Vista's Disk Management as much as I could, and shrunk it further to 50gb using Gparted. After doing this, I couldn't boot into Vista anymore. So I restored the image using the recovery manager.

I then created another 50gig partition for Win7, and installed it. All well and good.

Then I created an extended partition out of the remaining space, since all other partitions were primary, and created two logical partitions, 1 unformatted and the other NTFS.

After this, I booted into Vista and saw that my recovery partition had turned to unallocated space, even though I'd made sure not to touch that partition no matter what...

HP/Compaq :: New HPs Require Recovery Partition For Future RecoveryEven After Clean Install

May 19, 2009

I own an HDX16T. Day 1, I burnt RECOVERY DISKS and then I proceeded with a clean install with a new vista install.

I decided to try to restore the notebook with those recovery disks. Guess what? It appears that you can no longer use those disks without having the original HP RECOVERY PARTITION?

I just simply can't use it anymore. I can't restore my notebook to factory condition anymore. The only option I have is to Click "FINISH" and reboot.

HP Pavilion Dv7-6b50ei Recovery :: Trying To Factory Reset But Recovery Partition / Discs Created Faulty

Jul 8, 2013

I have a pavilion dv7-6b50ei notebook pc bought 2012. It always gives a command prompt pop up which doesn't stay long enough to read. I also felt there's a virus on it which my anti-virus couldn't solve so I tried factory resetting but when I restart and press F11 it gives an error(something like a boot.. is missing). so I tried my recovery discs. Disc 1 of 4 ran fine but disc 2 keeps stopping with an error.

Now the laptop doesn't load as I think the OS has been formatted during the recovery and don't know what to do. I feel disc 2 is bad too because it also gave an error while trying to copy it to a USB pen drive. I have also tried an external dvd and run the hp test on the hard drive; the hard drive passed the test. If I can get a new set of recovery discs, it would solve my problem.

HP ProBook 6550b OS/Software :: Recovery Partition Is There But Recovery Won't Start

Mar 13, 2011

When trying to restore the factory image (F11 during boot), the laptop seems like it is trying to boot the missing Windows installation (Windows boot manager error page).The partitions "SYSTEM", "HP_RECOVERY" and "HP_TOOLS" have not been touched. The ~15 GB recovery files are still there!The Windows partition (2nd primary) has been deleted and recreated as an NTFS partition. Since then the recovery process will not start.
 
How can I restore the system from my intact HP_RECOVERY partition without using recovery DVDs? (I can't access them right now.)Does the Windows partition need some specific disk label? What is the magic that breaks the recovery when a NTFS partition is simply deleted and recreated?Peter

HP ProBook 6550b (WD701EA#ABD)

under Computer Management -> Storage -> Disk Management there is a partition without a Volume Name that is 10.37 GB big and has a status of "Healthy (EISA Configuration)". Is this the recovery partition? If so, how do I delete it? Right Clicking on it, unlike the other two partitions I have, doesn't give me an option to delete or format.

Dell :: Restoring Recovery Partition From DVD

Mar 16, 2009

I made a DVD as a backup of the recovery partition on an Inspiron 9300. When I run recover.exe, I can see the *.gho file and I can select it. But for some reason, it says it's 76GB in size.

I can't select individual partitions so I can't copy it to the second partition. I know it's not absolutely necessary to have it but the old hard drive was crashing.

Dell :: What's On The Recovery 15GB Partition?

Jul 14, 2009

I've always assembled my own computers so this is the first time I went with a prebuilt computer and laptop from Dell. I"m curious what is on the Recovery partition that's 8GB (partition size is 15GB).

On my desktops, I usually partition 20GB out and leave it unformatted in case there's a system disaster that won't let me boot, I'll then use the 20GB partition to install a fresh OS

Acer :: Recreating The Recovery Partition

Mar 7, 2009

For reasons that are too long to explain, I managed to destroy this partition on the hard drive of my Acer 4539G laptop. So no PQservice partition and the original Acer MBR is gone too. All I have left is a couple of FAT32 partitions.

I do have the contents of the PQservice partition on a USB stick.

Is there a way to recreate the PQservice partition, so that Acer's eRecovery would work again?

Acer :: How To Format/partition New Hdd Using Recovery CD

Feb 5, 2009

how to partition my hdd?

(using Acer Recovery CD to install Win XP)

I have an Acer Ferrari 3000Lmi notebook.
I just replaced the hdd with a new one.
it's 80GB 5400 rpm, IDE
It's not formatted and it's not partitioned.
My notebook is an old model,
so I don't think there's a recovery partition and it doesn't have an e-empowering acer button, etc.
It only comes with Acer recovery CD's.

when I put the new hdd in, it's detected in bios,
so I installed Win XP Home using the Acer Recovery CD.
and it didn't have option to format or to partition my hdd there.
everything just ran automatically.
and now I have one C: drive.

Can anyone help me on how to partition my hdd ?
I prefer not to use partition magic/other programs to partition my hdd.
I don't know if I have DOS.
I don't mind installing XP all over again, I just don't know how to format/partition the hdd before using the recovery CD.
