HP SleekBook 14 Recovery :: Trying To Recover From Windows 8 Compatible USB Flash Drive

Nov 28, 2014

I think I have a hard disk failure or error. It states the disk name:TOSHIBA MQ01ABF050 and the volume C:;D:  . I have a HP Pavilion TS Sleekbook 14 with windows 8.1 (I upgraded from the Windows 8 which came in with the laptop) and  I unknowingly created a recovery image on a Windows 8 compatible usb successfully when I was already experiencing problems with my laptop hard drive. I later found out that it is not recommended to create a recovery image on a windows 8 compatible usb.

I'm hoping to just go back to factory settings and wipe out all my files if that can get my laptop back in working condition as I have already backed up my important documents to USB. My following question's are

1.) Will the recovery image that I created with the usb that's windows 8 compatible not work if I try to do a factory reset?
2.) Will the recovery image that I created while having the errors already, be techically "clean," meaning it has all the necessary components for a running laptop once I replace my hard drive or do a recovery with the current hard drive in place?
3.) Will I be able to restore from the recovery partition? or does the hard disk failure affect that drive as well?
My USB flash drive is also compatible with windows 8 AND 7. Is it possible to just transfer it to just a windows 7 compatible usb if I'll encounter problems due to the windows 8 compatibility of the flash drive I've used for the recovery image creation.

HP Pavilion 15 OS/Software :: SleekBook Won't Display Boot Menu With USB - Restarts Continuously

Sep 24, 2013

I have an HP Pavilion Sleekbook 15 (Model: 15-b022es) in which i'm tryig to install Linux. Since the day I bought it, I've been unable to boot anything directly through USB. I've searched a lot on this topic, and the usual causes are Boot devices order, Secure boot or Legacy Support options. That is certainly not the case, since I have tried all possible combinations. In fact, the exact symptoms that my laptop exhibits aren't described anywhere I've found. This being:
If I insert an USB drive in any port of the laptop, it renders the computer completely unable to boot. It's not that it freezes, it restarts again and again, but never goes beyound a black screen and making some HDD sounds (usual boot up sounds, nothing weird). Within this state, with the USB still inserted, I can access the BIOS configuration by pressing F10, but can not access boot devices menu (usually available at F9), because pressing F9 will just cause a new reboot.
In the past I accessed the boot menu by not inserting any USB and then pressing F9, then I entered the USB, entered and left some random folder to force refresh the display (and so show the USB), and finally selected my USB. This is a bit hacky, and I can no longer apply this solution, since my HDD is completely erased now and there is no folder I can enter to refresh the screen and display the usb drive.
Now the thing is: I can't manage to install any operating system back into my laptop if I can't boot from USB, so how can I do that? Right now all I get are continuous resets of the machine before even getting to the boot menu. And what is the cause for all those reset?

Lenovo X / Helix Tablet :: X61 Won't Boot To USB Flash Drive

Feb 29, 2008

For some reason my x61 will not allow me to boot to usb flash drive, which i normally use to install OS'. What could be wrong and what i could do to rectify it?
I should mention that USB is enabled in the BIOS, and the usb flash disk install works on other computers.
Update appeared to be some incompatibility with wintoflash, i used the Microsoft DVD/USB tool and it booted to the flash drive and completed the install. Strangely the wintoflash install worked fine in an HP dv3000.

Lenovo W540 ThinkPad W Series :: Won't Boot From USB Flash Drive

Mar 29, 2014

I just got a new Lenovo W540.  I installed a new Samsung EVO SSD inside to replace the stock mechanical hard drive.  I'm now trying to boot from a flash drive to clean install Windows.  I've done this so many times before on other laptops and desktops without a problem.  For some reason now it will not boot from the flash drive.  It shows it as available in the BIOS but it looks like it reads it for just a second and then goes right back to the screen that allows me to choose which drive I want to put to.The same flash drive works fine in other computers to boot to.I did check to make sure the USB drive was not excluded in the BIOS and it is not.

HP Pavilion Dv5-2077cl OS/Software :: How To Install New Hard Drive And Create Recovery Disks Before Installing New Drive

Aug 20, 2011

HP Pavilion Dv5-2077cl Entertainment NotebookProduct #: WQ799UA#ABAWindows 7 64-bit

I have been getting a random blue screen popping up every once and a while, that will "dump my physical memory" or something and then reboot itself after like 30 seconds. my hard drive was the reason for these constant errors. So I backed everything up, in preparation of a real crash. I am in the process of ordering a new hard drive from Newegg.com, and I would like to know if it is hard to replace a hard drive in a notebook, or if I should have Geek Squad do it for $50. Also, I dont think I have the Operating system disc that came with my computer, so how do I order that from HP and how much is it?And last but not least, Is there a post or video with instructions on how to install a hard drive and the operating system?

HP Pavilion Dv6000 Recovery :: Low Disk Space On Recovery Disk D Drive

Oct 17, 2011

I am so tired of receiving Low Disk Space on recovery (D). I have done everything it asked. Empty Recycle Bin which is EMPTY. I am not a computer wizard but it seems unfair that I have pay over $150.00 year to correct this problem once a year. I have checked a lot of places and it just keeps telling me the same thing. That doesn't work.
I did just install a HP wireless printer 3052A

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: How To Boot From Recovery Partition On Cloned Drive With Vista

Dec 8, 2014

My uncle has a Dell Inspiron 1545 with 3Gb RAM, 160 Gb HD and Windows Vista Home Premium. On boot up there is an error message stating that a back up should be performed immediately as the hard drive has a serious problem.

The good news is that I managed to make a clone of the 160 Gb HD to a 1000 Gb HD (Western Digital Blue) using Paragon software before the original drive failed. The bad news is that the cloning process stopped at 42%, but this 42% included the recovery partition and another part of the HD called Dell Utility.

I installed the cloned WD drive and pressed F8 on boot up, but the advanced boot menu did not appear. Instead I get the error message 'no bootable devices'.

I ran the diagnostics program using F5. All the tests were completed and 'passed'. The BIOS recognizes the new drive as 1000 Gb.

Question: how do I boot the laptop? My uncle does not have any recovery media.

HP Pavilion G6 Recovery :: Can't Detect Boot Device After Factory Format To New HDD

Nov 26, 2014

I have an HP Pavilion G6 that I purchased in December 2012. Yesterday I decided to get a new HDD to upgrade it and start fresh. It's a 1TB SSD+HDD hybrid by Seagate. It installed without a hitch, and I used my HP recovery CDs to do a factory format of the disk.It finishes, reboots, but instead of rebooting to the HP Windows 8 setup screens, it goes to what looks like Windows 8 safe mode with a box containing the date, time, and it says something along the lines of "HP diagnostics driver installation" with an OK. Clicking that or not makes it disappear, and there's a command prompt bar at the bottom left hand corner of the screen.The screen changes to an HP screen that begins to install drivers. It finishes, and reboots to a black screen that says "no boot device detected, please install OS."I ran a check of the drive and it's fine. I swapped my regular drive back in, and it loaded up fine. In fact that's what I'm using right now to type this. The boot order was never changed in the BIOs. If it were the connector failing I doubt it would load the drive that's always been in the computer. Loading up the newly formatted drive in an external enclosure shows that Windows 8 is indeed on it, but on a 93GB partition even though the drive is 1TB.

The previous user set login on a fingerprint, forgot the password. I managed to enter as a result after the long operation myself, as the administrator, to set the password, to set an input both according to the password and on a fingerprint.

But, I want to disconnect all this horror absolutely. Also I don't understand as it to make. I can enter BIOS, but the majority of points thus is unavailable.

HP Pavilion Dv7 1451NR OS/Software :: Can't Boot From 2nd Drive By Default

Oct 1, 2014

My Problem: Can't boot from second drive by default

I have an HP Pavillion dv7 1451NR, product number NV204UA#ABA.

I have two drives installed. I have Windows 7 64-bit installed on drive 0 and Ubuntu 32-bit installed on drive 1.
I can successfully boot either operating system by the following procedure:

Power up
Press escape-key to get to BIOS
Press F9-key to get to boot menu
Boot menu shows two drives named “Internal Hard Drive”
If I select the first entry named “Internal Hard Drive” I boot to Windows 7.
If I select the 2nd entry named “Internal Hard Drive” I boot to Ubuntu.
I power up if I do NOT press escape, the machine boots to Windows after the timeout. My Problem: I want to boot to Ubuntu by default.
I've checked the HP bios and I don't believe there is any way to do this by changing the boot priority in BIOS. The BIOS doesn't seem to differentiate between the two hard drives. I only has one entry for “Internal Hard Drive”.
I believe an approach that should work is:

Use bcdedit or easybcd to create a BCD record that points to GRUB.
Create a GRUB config file that “chain” loads Ubuntu.
Use bcdedit to move the GRUB entry as the default.
I've tried various permutations but can't get it to work.

How do I discover where the initial boot image is for GRUB?

HP Pavilion Dv6-2140EI OS/Software :: Hard Drive Failure - No Recovery Partition

Apr 23, 2014

I have a Pavilion DV6-2140EI notebook with a failed hard drive. I purchased a new hard drive but to my surprise, all recovery disks or system image files are useless without the recovery partition on the drive. It appears that HP and Microsoft teamed up to not support hard drive failure. As you no longer get the original operating system on disk anymore, it looks like one is forced to purchase Windows again after hard drive failure.

"This PC is not supported by the System Recovery Discs. You will not be able to continue to recover this system with these discs."
Error code: 0100-30FC-3602-3603

HP Pavilion 4070-us OS/Software :: New Hard Drive - Recovery Discs Won't Work

Jan 30, 2015

The hard drive on my Pavilion 4070-us crashed, so I bought a replacement drive - a Samsung SSD 850 EVO, 256GB.  The problem is that I can't seem to get the recovery discs to work, and neither Microsoft or HP support me. Microsoft of course tells me that they won't support for OEM versions of Windows 7, and HP said that my product has been discontinued. I own a legal copy of Windows 7....
What happens after I go through the installation process with the recovery discs is that instead of the Windows installation continuing like it's supposed to, I get "No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key".  I'm desperate, I tried two different options - one was the minimal image recovery, the other one was a factory restore. Nothing seems to work. What can I do?   By the way, the original hard drive is not *completely* dead - I can still access most of the data on it.
