Re: to make recovery partition for vista
If that's a brand new model damroo, the recovery cd should be a software that you can click on the desktop, it should say something like HP PC System Recovery or something similar. For a complete guide, try checking this out. It should be similar in making recovery cd on XP/Vista.

I could get your problem.Actually the primary partition of your pc is messed up. You need to reinstall your OS.To restore deleted partition try this recovery software because this tool is capable of restoring datas and disk volumes easily. You can get the demo version from here .If satisfied purchase the full version as i did..
didnt u make the recovery discs beforehand???? if the option for restore factory settings is shown...then go for it.....it works in my vista....u will have your notebook as it was when u bought it.....but only one problem.....you will lose everything u have on your laptop..as it is formatted...
IF it is HP PC than you can simply go ahead a reload the factory settings in the OS from the Recovery partition without the help of the CDs. Every HP pc have a separate partition where the image of the entire OS is loaded. you can simply go ahead and reload it from that partition. Just follow the following steps- 1. Turn off of the pc completely. 2. Disconnect all the external devices and the internet connection. 3. As soon as you turn on the pc start tabbing the F11 key( for Windows Vista). 4. It will take you to the recovery manager and from there you can just follow the onscreen instructions.
have a look here and more pertinent, the F11 option here. If you have the right disks, you should still be able to run them...you will just have to boot windows from the recovery disks...
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!
This can happen if the Recovery Partition is corrupted or the Hard Drive is bad.
First, I recommend you to check the Hard Drive using the Hard Drive test utility available in the BIOS by following the steps below :
Start or restart the notebook and start tapping the F10 key.
This will get you the BIOS Setup window.
In this. go to the Diagnostics or Tools tab where you can find the Hard Drive test utility.
Select using the Up/Down arrow keys and press enter to start the test.
Make sure that you complete the Full test which may take around 80 minutes to complete.
If the Test result is Pass, we can come to a conclusion that the issue is with the Recovery Partition which is corrupted.
You need to purchase the Recovery Disks for your Notebook in this situaiton.
Contact HP Chat Support to get the exact link to order the Recovery Disks for your Notebook.
However, if the Test Result is Fail, you need to take backup of the data in the Notebook and replace the Hard Drive with a new one.
Hope this helps...
When you turn it on, watch the screen carefully. Many times recovery is contained on a small partition of your hard drive. When your computer begins booting, watch for a short message that says something like, "For recovery press F11". It could be another F key. You will only get a couple seconds to choose it. Choose an option that does a full restore which will reformat the drive.
