I had the same problem. On Microsoft website, it is mentioned that if you bought a computer with Windows already installed and you want to reinstall it, you have to contact the manufacturer's website of your computer. In my case, I had to contact Acer. The person at the support center told me that I need to download the .iso file from there website, the .iso file that corresponds to the model of my computer. She mentioned also that the recovery disks produced are needed during the installation. So, I suggest you contact HP to know if you need the product key to reinstall Windows, or like me, you have to download an.iso.

If pressing F11 ("system recovery") does nothing, then your disk-drive, which contains a "system recovery partition" is inaccessible,
i.e., your disk-drive has failed.

You'll need to buy a new disk-drive, install it, and use the original "System Restore" set of CD/DVD disks to reinstall Windows onto the new disk-drive.

HP Pavillion DV9000t ''Unrecoverable error has occured''


The recovery disk is defective so the install is bad. Install using another disk (even a generic retail one of the same type will do) and your key.

Hp pavillion dv6915n - no hard drive detected


We do not say that the hard drive is damage maybe the IDE was faulty already. You may open your laptop and check the hard drive. Try to replace the IDE to check if the hard drive is good.

My recovery manager doesn't work. i need to do the original factor system. it doesn't do it. all it does shuts down the computer and brings it back up with nothing done


Sounds like your recovery partition is messed up. You can get hp to send you a disk to fix it by contacting them. Or if you get ahold of the windows OEM (original equpment manufacturer) disk that matches your system, you can reload it yourself using the product key on your computer. This will be on a rectangular sticker which says what version of windows you have. You should be able to get a disk from a local computer shop, at mine we provide a disk without a COS (certificate of authenticity) for a couple of dollars.

Hp pavillion zv6000 no disks need full restore...


Yes, the recovery partition is 100% true, and I've actually used it to repair a lot of systems, simply because it saves you time, stress and energy.
It is always on a smaller partition on your hard disk, and it is also hidden, so you wont see it.
To use the recovery partiton, you have first of all take note that you must backup ALL your documents first, because the use of the recovery partition will Actually format your harddrives and restore your system back to the factory settings, i.e the way you bought it.
Now, provided your own recovery partition is still intact and not yet corrupt, this is how to use it.
When you power up your system, Keep tapping the F11 key, i.e the F11 function key.
This will invoke the command that boots up your recovery parttion and lets your system boot from it.
Thereafter, you can just follow the on-screen instructions to complete the recovery, and again PLEASE remember to backup ALL your necessary documents first.
Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck

How to get to recovery partition when booting up HP Pavillion MX


The same problem happened to me today on my hp Pavillion a1600n.
Try pressing the F10 key as the computer is powering on. This may allow the computer to access the recovery partition on the hard disk. If you get that far, then you can restore the user partition from the recovery partition. If it is like the a1600n, then you can do a restore of all the content and either leave your own data files intact, or, have it reformat the user partition and then you WILL have to restore all the data files. In either case, you will likely need to reinstall any applications that were added AFTER you got the PC. (Or, in my case, some apps were still kinda working...).

If F10 does not work, you may be able to create a PC Recovery Tools CD from a different hp XP machine, and boot that CD. During part of that boot up process you may get the opportunity to run the Recovery program.

Hope that helps!

Hello,

You system is infected with a potent antivirus, and cannot be resolve anymore by a potent antivirus.

So you need to reinstall your computer to the original setting:

By doing this : insert the windows installation disk/ or the system recovery disk.
reboot your PC from the CD/DVD rom and then wait until boot finish.

If you are using system disk recovery , just read carefully the instruction on-screen.
If you are using the windows installation disk then here is the windows installation information: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316941
