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.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y50-70 Backup Created And Recovery Drive Boots But Can't Find System Image

Dec 19, 2014

So as soon as I got my brand new Y50-70, and before doing anything on this laptop (not even installing new software), I went tried OneKey Recovery only to discover that it is broken.
I then tried my luck with Windows Recovery (the one provided with every Windows 8.1 copy, not unique to Lenovo):
I first went through system image creation on a recovery drive (1TB WD Elements USB HDD):
1. Find it on Control Panel:
2: Select it (Recovery option):
3. Create a recovery drive:
4.  Selected the F: drive (1TB, it's not a *flash* drive just an ordinary USB hdd, does it matter?):
5. Got a nice warning (indeed, this process reformatted the drive, to 32GB only, why 32GB and not the full 1TB?)
Now... let's see if I can restore from this newly created system image:
1. Rebooted from the newly created Recovery Drive (it actually boots!):
2. Selected "Use a device", then received this menu:
3. I selected EFI USB Device. It then went to an intermediate Lenovo boot splash:
4. And shortly after that (without me doing anything) a new prompt, to choose a language:
5. I selected English and then, got prompted for keyboard layout:
6. The system then system to restart again from the Recovery Drive, only to prompt me again with the "Choose an Option" screen (as in step #1). So, I selected "Troubleshoot" this time:
7. I then selected "Advanced options", and received this screen:
8. I then selected System Image Recoery and received this screen:
9. I selected the only option available (Windows 8.1), then got this "Cannot find system image":
10. Why??? I clicked cancel and I was prompted to select an image:
11. So I clicked Next, but got nothing to select:
12. Clicking the Advanced button only provides irrelevant options:

Sony :: After Servic, Unable To Reinstall System With Recovery Discs

Apr 23, 2009

A few days ago sony replaced mobo in my BZ model, because there was a problem with onboard GPU chip.

Now I am unable to do a system recovery with my discs that were made from the same laptop before sending it to repair. I also noticed BIOS was upgraded, but I doubt this is the case.

HP Compaq Presario CQ60 OS/Software :: How To Start System Recovery Discs

Jul 13, 2012

I have been sent 2 system recovery dvd's and one supplemental disc by hp. I put them into my drive and nothing happens. How do I start this procedure? I thought maybe all that I hav to do was wait until it started automatically (didn't happen) or click on the Boot option - nothing happens there either. I Have an HP Compaq Presario CQ60 Laptop with Windows 7 home premium. What to do? I am NOT a very sophisticated computer user. I need to do the recovery as I've had a total crash.

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 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 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.

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 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

HP Pavilion DM3 Recovery :: System Locked - Administrator Password

Sep 30, 2013

I'm trying to fix my neighbours computer, it's a Pavilion dm3 and somehow she managed to completly lock the system. When it boots it just asks for the administrator password and will not continue to boot, not even bios menu is available.
I've read some other posts on this forum that the way to unlock it is to post the "halt code" given when 3 passwords have failed, in my case that code is: 51019908
Also, how does one even end up in this state, I've never seen this kind of lockdown before?
