SOURCE: Error 0x400 100 130000 1002 while restoring factory image HP

I am assuming you are trying to reinstall Vista. Apparently, HP's recovery partition is less than perfect and the recovery disc you created is probably worthless. (and you can NOT make another one, they only let you make one!) You are not the only person to have this issue.

Here are some things you can try:
1) Borrow an OEM version of Vista from someone...anyone. It sounds like you are proficient with PC's and maybe you know someone who works in IT. Use your product key (25 digit key code) and you should be able to reinstall.

2) if you like Vista, buy yourself an OEM version. It will not have all the factory (HP, Dell, Acer, whatever) BS on it. It will positively work because your hardware if fine.

3) Put XP on it. Personally, I think Vista is a mess. Microsoft is working on "OS7" and soon Vista will be like "Millennium".

Sorry it's not an easy fix, but glad your hard drive and memory show no errors.

SOURCE: recovery disk

"recovery disk creator" is a program that is used for creating recovery CDs for computer. One of the companies that make this program is Soft Thinks. You can try asking Toshiba for a new recovery disk. Their policy change from country to country, I do not know if it will came for free or you will have to purchase the recovery disks from Toshiba. In any case, if the files in the recovery partitions are still intact you should be able to do a complete system recovery at any time. In this case doing a complete system restore from your recovery partition will bring back the program. On many Toshiba laptops you have to press F11 when it prompts you at startup. Bear in mind that if you choose this solution, it will wipe your drive clean and re-install the OS.

hope this helps

SOURCE: i have hp pavilion dv6000 i had a problem about recovery manager

Did you attempt to load recovery/factory image from hidden partition and if so did you follow User Manual or Guide re instruvtions? if so there should have been no problems. I would try again though do it slowly and carefully when choosing Options so that you don't change Partitions where the Default Software is.

Was it Alt and F10 buttons when powering up from a Shutdown, i.e Cold Boot?

How many CD's or DVD's are needed to create my set of Recovery Discs? I'm experiencing some alarming errors showing up in the system and event logs and want to run sfc, but I need a WInXP install CD t


When you run the make recovery/restore disks software it will tell you. Look for a folder called HP in your program files list (click start) and you should see the recovery options somewhere in there. I'd guess, not including DATA 12+ cd's or 2 dvd's.

How to restore to factory settings, hp desktop pavilion 1993


There are two ways to do this. 1st. Using the recovery partition already installed on your hard drive. 2nd. Creating recovery disc by launching the recovery disc creator. It is highly recommended that when purchasing a new computer a set of recovery discs be may as a factory back up in case your hard drive fails. You should make your recovery discs first. That will require at least 3 DVD blanks. Tell you what, you make the discs first and I'll explain how to use both methods. Click your start button and find a folder called maintenance. The location and name of the folder varies by each computer manufacture as to where they file the recovery disc creator program. I believe It's in the maintenance folder. Open it and there you should find the program. Simply run the program and follow instructions. computershack.leo@gmail.com Good Luck

Restore hp pavilion dv7 1464nr to factory settings windows


Step 1:
Which operating system ?
Restore Hp laptop factory settings without a Restore Disc Turn on the HP laptop. When the blue HP screen appears, press the "F10" key repeatedly until the "Recovery Menu" appears. A progress indicator informs you of the time before the recovery process is to take place. Click "Next" in the Recovery Menu. Decide whether you want to perform a nondestructive or destructive recovery. A "nondestructive recovery" does not format the laptop's hard drive or erase any personal files on your laptop. However, a "destructive recovery" formats your laptop's hard drive and erases any personal files you have on your laptop. Click "Yes" to execute a "Normal, nondestructive recovery." The restore process begins and your laptop restarts. Alternatively, to execute a destructive recovery, click "Advanced." Click "Yes" to start the "Destructive recovery." The restore process begins and your laptop restarts.

Restoring with CDs Back up all crucial user files if you are able to do so. If your computer will not burn CDs, use flash drives of 4GB or higher to store your data. Alternatively, you can use your network to transfer files. You can then back up your data to CDs at your leisure. Detach peripheral devices such as removable media drives, USB drives and your printer before recovering. Also remove any additional hard drives by disconnecting the cable from the back of the computer. Leave your monitor, mouse and keyboard attached to the computer. Shut down your computer. Place the first recovery CD in the CD drive. If your recovery files are written on a partition, you may be able to select system recovery from the splash screen and your computer starts. Select the recovery option you would like to use. To perform a destructive recovery, click the "Advanced" menu option. Select "Destructive Recovery" and click "Next." To perform a non-destructive, or system, recovery, click "Next" from the opening screen. Watch the computer while it is recovering to the factory settings. Watch for any errors, as the computer will wait indefinitely for a response from you, slowing down recovery time. Also, you may need to insert additional recovery CDs as the recovery program requests them. b> Restoring With Recovery Manager Click the Windows "Start" menu, type "Recovery" in the Search field and press "Enter." Click "Advanced Options," choose "System Recovery" and select "Next." If you are prompted to use Microsoft's recovery program, select "No." Choose the option to back up your files, if you haven't done it already. Once that is complete, choose "Next" to begin reformatting the drive and returning the system to factory settings.

5. When prompted enter the first blank DVD and select Ok

6. When prompted enter the second blank DVD and select Ok

I hope this helps. Thumbs up if you think so.

I am going to be selling my computer and I want it to be like when I got it from the factory... I need the disks that will set everything back likee it was and erase all of my informaion....


To restore the laptop you will need to have the restore cd that came with it.

If you do have the cd with you, then insert the restore cd in you dvd drive and restart your laptop. When the message "Press any key to boot from dvd" appear press enter and then follow the on screen instructions.

If you don't have the discs, then you can follow the steps below:

Click Start , and then click All Programs .

Click Compaq and then click Compaq PC Recovery CD Creator to start the program.
Or
Click Compaq , click Compaq PC Tools , and then click Recovery CD Creator

Follow the on screen instruction to create your restore disks.
