HP Pavilion 17 Recovery :: Bios Recovery From Legacy Csm?

Jan 28, 2015

I changed my HP to boot with legacy CSM, but I couldn't boot from the Windows 7 boot disc.  The laptop was shipped with Windows 8 configured for UEFI boot before my change.   The screen after boot is blank and now I can't even get to the bios menu. 
I have tried a Windows 8 USB recovery drive, but the computer doesn't seem to try to boot from flash, even with the hard drive disconnected and the CD tray open. 
I watched a video of a man disassembling an HP Pavilion completely down to the base plate, but I did not see a back-up or RTC battery anywhere in the computer.  If I could find the bios back-up battery for removal or reset the bios somehow with the hardware, i would do that.  I waited for 4 hours without the main battery attached without any change.  At this point I don't know if this model Pavilion even has backup battery. How to reset the bios to default UEFI setting without a bios menu? Note that pushing F2/F8/F9/F10/F11 and a whole bunch of other keys does not bring up the bios menu at boot time (like it did when it was in UEFI mode).
My next steps are to use the HP Recovery Media application on a 2nd computer to create 6 Window 8 DVDs and see if these will boot from the CD.  If that doesn't work, I'll contact HP support and see if they can send me a custom recovery disc. 
It seems strange to me that I can't even get to a bios menu in legacy mode.  Is this normal?  I suspect that my configuration change corrupted something and no booting will work any more.  If booting from disc doesn't work, I think I'm stuck with trying to drain whatever back-up power source keeps the bios in-state, however long that is.

HP Pavilion 7-e019dx Recovery :: Laptop Won't Go Past Recovery Screen Running Windows 8

Sep 1, 2014

I have an HP Pavillion model 17-e019dx running Windows 8. Every time I turn it on, it stops at a blue screen that says
Your PC needs to be repaired
 A required device isn't connected or cannot be accessed
 Error code 0xc000000f
When I press enter to "Try again" it come back with:
File:WindowsSystem32winload.efi above the error code listed above.
I have tried the Recovery and after MUCH time waiting, it still comes back to the above mentioned screen. I have also run all the diagnostics that are available on the laptop and everything come back normal. I don't have the original discs or documentation as I "received this laptop as a "gift/curse" . It is, however, registered to me.

HP Pavilion G7 Recovery :: Laptop Image Recovery Copy File Fails?

Dec 15, 2014

Equipment: HP Notebook g7
Operating system: Windows 8 
I purchased a Pavilion g7 laptop in December 2012.  The 1TB HDD that came with the laptop started to go bad on me.  After several attempts to 'system self-repair' (which failed) I purchased a replacement Seagate SSHD 1TB HD.  Since I did not have any Windows 8 recovery discs I contacted HP, paid for and had them sent to me.
So now I have a new SSHD, new W8 recovery discs and my laptop.  I replaced the HD and started the recovery process per the paper instructions that came with the discs.
At 4% (in the 'Copying files required to restore the hard drive phase') I get an error message:
                    Reducer (Title of the error message)
                    Copy File Fails
                    From: D:/PRELOAD/BASE14.SWM
                    To:  C:/RM/Image/BASE14.SWM
                    Press OK to retry. 
Obviously since I'm posting about this simply pressing 'OK to retry' did not work.  I powered the laptop down and restarted the recovery process.  I got the same error message at the same point described above.

HP Pavilion Dv6000 Recovery :: Bootmgr Is Missing - No Installation Or Recovery Disk

Mar 2, 2013

I have an HP Pavilion dv6000 and run Windows Visa Home Edition.I wanted to restore my laptop to its factory settings but the Recovery Manager wouldn't work. When I clicked on it it would just restart the computer without anything else happening. I then right clicked on the computer >manage> disk manager and made the recovery partition active. When I rebooted the computer it began showing:Bootmgr is missingPress Ctrl+Alt+DeleteWhich of course leads back to the same message after te computer reboots. I can't access F8 key. Only F10 (Bios) works. I don't have a recovery or installation CD as it didn't come with the laptop when I purchased it.Is there anyway I can change the active partition back to the C drive, this disabling the recovery partition? I read that it was possible to access disk manager from cmd prompt window, but I don't know how to access it since the F8 key won't work (makes just a bipping noise when pressed)?I am also out of the country so can't mail my laptop to HP to have it fixed.

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 Pavilion TS 11-e100 Recovery :: Cannot Create Recovery Media After SSD Installation

Dec 13, 2014

I've just replaced HDD by SSD and tried to make a recovery USB media by means of 8.1 recovery utility. The process takes suspiciously short time, but finishes normally reporting that media is created. The size of all files on the flash is about 200 MB. When I did the same media with HDD the size was 12GB. I tried to boot with that flash and it failed with a message about corrupted media or the like. I always believed that windows does not take into account the physical structure of the drive and cannot understand what's going on and what to do.

HP Pavilion 15-p189sa Recovery :: Back Up / Recovery Discs

Feb 3, 2015

I have been told that I must pay for a recovery disk when I buy this laptop (HP Pavilion 15-p189sa with Windows 8.1). I have also been told that I must buy it because when attempting to recover my laptop and reconfigure it to manufacture settings, this can only be done once.
Once this has been done, it cannot be done more than once unless I have a back-up/recovery disc/USB that PC world are offering.whether it is possible for me to make my own recovery disc/USB  and avoid this 'once-only' limit? Or do I need to buy one from a store?

HP Pavilion 17-e119wm Recovery :: Windows 8.1 Recovery Failure

Nov 14, 2014

I had a bad hard drive and HP sent me a new one with 3 recovery discs. I installed windows 8.1 using the 3 discs and got an installation failure message. No error code, just a message with the option to save log, quit, or retry so I retried. Hours passed and I got the same message. Called HP again and the woman told me to run an extensive hard drive test. So I'm waiting 4 hours now for that to do it's thing.

The original hard drive told me there is an imminent hard drive failure upon turning the laptop on every time. Other than that it works fine... so far. I've had the laptop almost a month now and this problem started too late for me to return it to the store....
Is it possible for me to use a recovery disc from the origional hard drive on the new one? I'll put the old one in again and make one.I really don't want to send the laptop away unless there's no other option.

HP Pavilion G6 Recovery :: How To Backup Files During Recovery Process

Jan 13, 2015

I want to do a recovery of my Pavilion g6, I will have to do this from the recovery disk (D) on my laptop since I don't have it on a seperate disk or DVD.
My questions are:
- Will I have the original storage on my harddisk (my notebook has a problem since refreshing it, after the automatic recovey I lost about 40 gig storage and now it's more than 50 gigs after 4 weeks of having this problem)
- How to backup my files during the recovery process, will my computer store it on the pc or will I have to back them up to a disk or pendrive?
- These problems started after someone else used my computer. Could it be a virus infection?
My option is to go to ask the seller to do it for me, but if there is a way I can do this myself that will save me money.
 I have a HP Pavilion g6 Notebook PC.
Processor:                      AMD A4-4300M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics
Product number:         C2N63UA#ABA
Operating system:      Windows 8,  64-bit
