Sony :: FW21Z Not Making Recovery Disks

Jan 7, 2009

got my laptop yesterday and the first thing i did was make the recovery disks. Bought some Sony dvd-r disks and after about 15 mins a message appears to say that the disks couldn`t be created. Rang Sony support today, they said you need to use Dual Layer dvds for the FW series. I bought the said disks and they don`t work either

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?

Sony :: No Hdd And No Recovery Disks

Apr 21, 2009

I have a friend's Sony Vaio VGN-FZ11M. Over a year old, if not 2. I need to fix it.

All looks fine except the HDD. I took out the HDD and tested it, it makes funny noises and 'click-click-click' noises which tells me the HDD has gone.

I want to buy a new HDD. Ok, but I have no recovery CDs nor (obviously) backup recovery partition. What is best/safest/easiest/quickest option I have?

Sony :: Z: One Of My Recovery Disks Is Kaput

Jun 10, 2009

I wanted to restore my Sony Z only to find out that the first of my recovery DVDs hangs after about 3/4 of the installation.

Would anyone be kind enough burn a set for me? I'm happy to pay something for it (though not the outrageous 40 pounds Sony wants to charge me).

Sony :: Installing Vista On New Hdd From Recovery Disks

Feb 13, 2009

Been nosing around the forum to try to find the answer before asking, but i really couldn't find any, so here goes!

I just got a new 7200rpm 320gb from WD to replace my old drive . I replaced it, boot the laptop (VGN-CR31S) as usual,

and put the first recovery DVD in the tray. Unfortunately, when it gets to the options menu,

I can't get it to install, it keeps asking for the right volume or cd/dvd. I thought the recovery dvds would be able to install everything from scratch ..

Sony :: Creating Recovery Disks For VGN-NS110E

Jun 8, 2009

I have formatted my drive and installed fresh copy of Vista and I forgot to backup my data.

I have recovered this partition labeled Compaq Diagnostics. Would that be the recovery image for my laptop? I have copied this partition onto an external drive. My question now is what is the next step to do in order to create the recovery disks? Do I boot and try F10? Will that look at the files for recovery that are now on an external drive?

Sony :: Creating Recovery Disks...only Using One Disk

Apr 28, 2009

I hear it is possible to create a recovery disk on only one DVD-R for my Vaio laptop. I lost my disks and need to recreate them, but the recovery app fails after a few disks.

What I need to know is what type of DVD-R can I buy that would have the capacity to hold all the recovery disks data?

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

Aug 30, 2009

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

Iím 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 sweepÖ. hopefully resulting in a faster laptop. Iím backing up her data, and moving some of my Dadís 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 donít think the (factory set) bloatware is too much of an issue for her Ė sheís not a heavy user.

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

Iíd like to know the best approach Ė and canít seem to find a set of instructions to follow.

Dell Inspiron 15 :: How To Install Recovery Data / Recovery Disks Onto Newly Partitioned Section Of Hard Drive

Mar 16, 2011

I recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 15 that came with the partitioned data recovery feature. I immediately created 2 recovery disks. Yesterday, I sectioned my active hard drive so that I could have, in effect, 2 hard drives. The newly partitionedsection of the hard drive is naturally blank and I would like to install my data recovery or disk recovery information on it.

HP/Compaq :: 2nd Set Of Recovery Disks Dv2

May 13, 2009

you may create a second set of recovery disks if you delete all instances of the file: hpcd.sys

I did create a set of recovery disks, I did delete all instances of hpcd.sys. When I attempt to create a set of disks, it says "A set of recovery disks has been created for this PC. Only one set is allowed per PC."

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 :: 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".

Acer :: Tried Running The Recovery Disks It Kept Saying There Was No Appropriate Partition

Feb 27, 2010

I have a bit older Acer Extensa 4620Z - quite a while back (probalby 9 months) i had problems with it and it stopped working, couldnt find operating system or hard drive. I finnally decided to buy a new hard drive for it once i found out it was that the hard drive had died. I got my new seagate harddrive and installed it - I also order recovery disks from Acer so I could get my system back up and running.

This is where my problem is. I can see the harddrive from bios and at first when i tried running the recovery disks it kept saying there was no appropriate partition. I made a bootable copy of a program so I could create partitions on the harddrive. I did this and then tried running the recovery disks. This time it went further and started the recovery process but everytime it gets to D1E4T303.044 in the process (at 47%) - it stops... and sits there a second and then either jumps to 100% and starts over or an error pops up (error: 0xD000001D).

I can not figure out where to go from here - isn't there some way I can use the recovery disks to get my system up and running on the new hard drive?

Acer :: How Many Copies Of The Recovery Disks Can I Make

May 23, 2009

I've had the impression that restore disks could only be made once, since I first had a Lenovo that told me I could only make the recovery disks once, due to the Windows licensing, I think. Does Acer also give you a limit to how many copies you can make or not?

Acer :: Aspire 5536G Can't Make Recovery Disks

Jul 1, 2009

I just purchased this model from my local Best Buy, and after having valiantly turned down their $150 set-up fee, I decided to try my hand at making the recover disks myself. Obviously, I failed miserably.

Here's my problem: using the eRecovery program on the laptop, I've tried burning a default factory disk using several types of CD's and DVD's but each time, the program rejects my disks and asks for a blank one. The error code that comes up is Error 0x205.

I've looked at the Acer Europe website, but I have not come to any conclusion as to how to fix this problem. My software seems to be up to date but could it be a faulty optical drive?

Acer :: Aspire One Netbook / Recovery Disks Freeze At Office 2010

I have an Acer Aspire One Netbook SNID 20206697434 with Windows 7. I bought the recovery disks because eRecovery stalls at Office 2010 but the disks do exactly the same thing - I can only open in Safe Mode. I've tried many times with the same result. Even though I bought the disks, Acer Customer Service won't let me talk to a tech because my net book is not unwarranty - mfg date is 1/14/2012.

Acer Gateway NV59C :: Windows 7 - Unable To Restore Gateway Using Recovery Management Disks

Sep 24, 2014

I have tried to restore laptop to oringal factory settings using Gateway Recovery Management disks purchased from Gateway. I have booted from System Disk (1 of 4) which ejected and instructed me to insert Recovery Disk 1 which loaded files (100%). Recovery Disk 1 ejected and instructed me to insert Recovery Disk 2 which also loaded files (100%). Then a "Restore Progress"window opened and and the process progressed to 79% and gave the following error messages: "WIMApplyImage fail. Error0x570" and "Fail to Restore Image".  
 
Prior to attempting the Restore process, all I get when I start the Gateway NV59C laptop is the following screen: 
 
Windows Boot Manager
 
A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source.
 
If you have a windows installation disc, insert the disc and restart your computer. Click ‚ÄúRepair your computer,‚ÄĚ and then choose a recovery tool.
 
Otherwise, to start windows so you can investigate further, press the enter key to display the boot menu, press F8 for Advanced Boot Options, and select Last Known Good. If you understand why the digital signature cannot be verified and want to start windows with this file, temporarily disable the driver signature enforcement.
 
File: windowssystem32ootwinload.exe
 
Status:            0xc0000428
 
Info: Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file. what is causing these error messages?

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?

Then attach the external hard drive to my HP 15 Notebook by usb port and install Hp recovey disks from the external hard drive.

Sony :: VGN-FS570 Won't Read Or Burn Disks

Feb 19, 2009

I've tried updating the drivers and updating the registry but the CD-ROM drive is still acting weird. The software from the sony support site actually made the issue worse because now the computer doesn't even recognize the drive (did the registry update). I am willing to go into the registry and try to undo the changes however I need to know where to look (so I'm not searching blindly). Further, I'm not really a fan of going into the registry and making modifications there.
