Question about PC Desktops
I had the same problem with the recovery cd getting to 83% and giving me the 0x4001100200001005 error. I did 2 things. I cleaned the disk it was erroring on and also removed the ethernet cable from the adapter. I have been working for 4 days on this and parsing the internet for answers. Finally it worked. I don't know if it was the cleaning of the disk...which did not look dirty, or the unplugging the network cable.

When doing a operating system recovery, I have noticed that if you save all of the files that you can first, Then run kill disk free software, then use a partion software like partition magic found on hirens boot cd making only 1 partition on the hardrive by eliminating hidden recovery partion , Then let it run sometimes it can take up to 8 hours running the recovery dvds do not stop trying, That it works. I have tried this on a gateway,hp,compaq and it has always worked, most of the time the first or second attempt of the recovery dvd run. You must make the hardrive only 1 partition or the recovery disk will read the old recovery partition and stop the recovery process. Make sure your disk are very clean also and sometimes the dvd/cd player needs to be cleaned with cd/ dvd player cleaning disk can be purchased at walmart,meijer or on line pretty cheap and usefull cleaning tool can be used on all dvd/cd players most of the time.
Hirens boot cd utility can be found all over the internet, Kill disk is free from there website as well!
I hope this helps someone!
Just be patient it can be a process!
