HP/Compaq :: Hp G60-230US Making Recovery Disc

Jan 12, 2009

I just last week bought an Hp G60-230US at Office Depot. Had them install Microsoft Office and clean up my computer. When I got home and tried to make a recovery disc, I keep getting a message that says "this computer does not have a drive capable of creating cd's or dvd's. Contact HP" I did this, and they tried to tell me it was the type of dvd I was trying to use (Maxell). I know Hp's can be touchy, but I don't think the type of disc would give me that type of error. Hp said they could send me a copy of the recovery discs. But my concern is with that message. Am I doing something wrong, or is my computer messed up? Any thoughts would be appreciated. I plan on calling Hp tonight, and possibly calling Office Depot to see if they did something bad to my computer when they "cleaned it up".

HP/Compaq :: Making A Recovery Disc

Aug 13, 2009

I'd like to upgrade my laptop's hard drive, but I did not pay for the backup discs at the time of purchase. As far as I know, the only way to get my OS onto the new HDD would be through a recovery disc.

I went to Start>Recovery Manager>Recovery Disc Creation and was greeted with the screen. After pressing next, I immediately receive the 'cancel' screen telling me "Cancellation in progress... Recovery disc creation will resume where you left off the next time you start the program", but it doesn't.

Is there another way to get my OS onto the new HDD?

HP/Compaq :: Dv5-1102tx- Making Another Set Of Recovery Disks

Mar 14, 2009

I'm using a HP Pavilion dv5-1102tx Entertainment Notebook. I bought this notebook at the end of January 2009.

After reading many threads telling me to create recovery disks, I decided to create a set for myself. "Yay!" I said to myself when the process was all done.

Then, I went to the drivers/software download page for my laptop, and lo and behold, I found a patch that, quote "corrects the information that is burned to the User Created Recovery Disc (UCRD)." unquote.

The link is here: [url]

Now, seeing as I can't create another set of recovery disks, I have 2 questions:

1) Is there a way for me to make the computer allow me to burn another set of recovery disks after I installed the patch?

2) Do I need to install the patch at all?

HP/Compaq :: New Laptop Dv5- Open The Disc Recovery Manager, And The Computer Suddenly Logs Off

Jan 29, 2009

i got my new dv5 last night and ive got a problem. The first time it happened was when i tried to make one of those back up DVD's, i open the disc recovery manager, and the computer suddenly logs off, and im reverted back to the welcome screen where i need to click my name to log back in. Every program that was running simply dissapears. I was like 'crap... i guess i cant make any back up discs'. But then it happened again when i tried to install WinRAR, it was corrupted becuase i copied the files from another computer and after i press ok in the error box it does the same thing.. 3 times i had to re-download a file i was downloading at that time. I guess it only happens when theres an error. I immediatly uninstalled norton and most of the bloatware so it cant be due to that. So now im paranoid about opening any file hoping that it wouldnt log off like that suddenly and lose my work.

HP Envy Dv7 Recovery :: Cannot Create Recovery Disc

Jan 8, 2015

I have an HP ENVY dv7 Notebook. When the computer was new I tried to make a recovery disc set. When finished I would check the discs ( DVD - R ) I would get a message saying the discs did not write correctly. Tried discs from three different packs, still the same. Called HP Support and they went through the procedure with me, still the same fail. I was told me not to worry if I ever had to have the discs because of a crash they would send them to me for free as they have a record. Now I will be using this computer mainly on the internet and think I should have the discs just in case. Called HP and was told no record, no free discs and it will cost a lot to make the discs. Is there any way to make discs or put the info on a hard drive? I do not know if the computer thinks I made a copy or not since the copies I thought I was making were defective.

Feb 10, 2009

I just ordered the Sony Vaio FW series. The agent said the notebook don't come with any Windows Vista Home Premium x64 DVD's as back up and i need to burn the recovery disc from the OS once i receive the laptop.

1. Is this the standard practice of shipment.

2. If i am to create recovery disc from the laptop, and then at a later time format and do an install from the recovery back up disk's, does the recovery install the old factory shipped drivers & software by default. If so is there a way to get rid of this.

3. What do i do if i want to do a clean install of the OS with the new drivers from net.

I would like to make the same with DVDs. create the recovery discs or to reinstall the windows 8 from scratch with the same license key (not even sure if I have one) the one preinstalled in my notebook?

Lenovo M30-70 C/E/K/M/N/V Series :: Windows 8.1 Upgrade Recovery Disc Set - Stuck On Installation

Jan 8, 2015

I recently got this laptop and wanted to upgrade to Windows 8.1 immediatly since it came with Windows 7. This was of course and option with the disc set that came with the laptop. Unfortunately i have encountered problems in the installation/recovery of Windows 8.1. 
 
When the laptop is finished using the actual disc's (i say finished because it spits out disc 4 which is the last one) and is booting into the OS to do the last installing it "freezes" in the middle of "dowork.cmd". In the cmd window it tries to access a destination directory which it can't. Instead of writing it here, i'm just gonna link a picture of it: 
 
I just don't understand why simple recovery discs would cause a failure... Googling the problem has only lead to this: URL....

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Windows 8 Recovery Disc Not Working For ThinkPad T430

Sep 28, 2013

I have purchased a Lenovo Thinkpad T430. This laptop came with pre-installed Windows 7 Pro. However I want to use Windows 8 which I have a recovery disc for.

I built in a SSD instead of the optical drive. So I don´t have a optical drive. On this SSD I want to run my OS.

With a software from Samsung (manufacturer of my SSD) I was able to copy the Windows7 OS on my SSD.

As I mentioned above I bought a laptop with installed windows 7 pro and a Windows 8 upgrade disc. Therefore I got the "Operating System Recovery Dis Windows 8 Pro. (OEM Activation 3.0 Required)".

The problem now is that I have an upgrade disc but no optical drive. So I created an image of the upgrade disc and with this image I have created a bootable USB stick with the following program:

[URL] ....

When I boot my laptop using the bootable USB stick everything seems to be working until to the point where I have to accept the EULA.

So I chose a  language, and clicked on "I accept the agreements".

When I want to click on "next" I got a error message "recovery failed".

Please have a look on the following picture taken with my smartphone. The language used in this picture is german as i live in Austria.

Link to image

How I can upgrade to Windows 8? Why the upgrade disc is not working?

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.
