When prompted, select the Back up your files first (recommended) option, and then click Next . Follow the on-screen instructions.
When prompted to Recover without backing up your files , please STOP before clicking Next .

If you are satisfied that you want to begin the recover process, click Next . The PC immediately begins formatting the hard drive and destroying all data.
1.Right-click on "Computer" icon and select manage. 2.This will launch the Microsoft Management Console. 3.On the left side of the MMC, click on "Disk Management" and it will show you all of the partitions. 4.Right-click on the "HP Recovery" partition and select "Mark as Active Partition." 5.When the warning prompt appears, select "Yes" - Reboot and it will automatically boot into the Recovery Manager (without pressing F11).
As you can see from the figure, recovery partition can be seen in the Disk Management but it can't be accessed. unless you give or assign a lettter to that partition using Diskpart and run as an admin. you have to clone the original hard drive from your Laptop to have a recovery menu. you can create your own recovery.
This happens if the harddisk data is corrupted. Hard disk has a data that the computer reads first before going to the operating system. To fix this to to do a debug or do a full format of the hard drive. Try to run a diagnostics first by pressing the F9 upon the HP logo. if it does not report any error run a recovery by pressing the F11 upon the HP logo then choose the SYSTEM RECOVERY. then simply follow the prompts to revive your computer to the original factory default. Do this a couple of times. If this will not work then most likely the recovery partition is deleted or corrupted. If you can still see the HP RECOVERY IMAGE, then go to START > COMPUTER / MY COMPUTER > right click and choose MANAGE > DISK MANAGEMENT > look for the HP RECOVERY IMAGE > right click and choose > SET AS ACTIVE PARTITION, then reboot the computer then simply follow the steps for the recovery.
If your "new" hard drive is really brand new from the factory, it needs to be partitioned and formatted before it will accept any software, even from a recovery disk. You can do that either with a slave cable via usb port using the "computer" "manage" function on a working computer, or use a boot CD to partition and format the drive on the computer getting the new drive. Then boot using the recovery disk and follow on-screen instructions.
Drive manufacturers save money by not preparing the drive, but it forces a user to know how to prepare it. Hence your difficulty getting the recovery disk to work. Just partition and format and you'll be ready to "recover".
