Question about HP Compaq nx9030 Notebook
Use the Windows installer for dual boot. Easy! Or test as Live CD (no-install)
A full install may require partition and Linux disk / file format. Along with setup files destinations options. This a full commit install.

the recovery disk is designed to repair or restore a system to its previous factory condition and is not a full installation. the formating of your hdd would have erased all the data required for this process to be completed. you can try a recovery utility that may be able to help you at this link. the disk might not have been saved in an .iso format to tell the computer to run it before starting an OS. if this disk is recognized and runs on your system then you will need to attempt a recovery, which is unlikely since the drive has allready been formated many necessary system files may not be able to be restored. at this point a complete new install will be necessary.

Well, Linux used to pride itself for being able to run on almost any machine. Ubuntu has become bloated over the years, but more user friendly. You may want to try an older distro like Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Long Term Support): http://releases.ubuntu.com/8.04/ You will want the PC (Intel x86) desktop CD version ubuntu-8.04.4-desktop-i386.iso
Or Xubuntu: http://www.xubuntu.org/getubuntu
Or Lubuntu: http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=lubuntu
