Question about PC Desktops
Hi, I have been trying to perform a system recovery to the original settings and it seems to be stuck at disk 5. It loaded disks 1-4 easily but only gets around 2% completed on disk 5 then puts out the following message: The file C:/PRELOAD/BASE_25.INP cannot be recovered. It gives me the options to abort or retry and both dont fix the problem. At first I thought it might be that the disk was scratched or dirty but I cleaned it and I repaired the disk to take care of any scratches (even though there wasnt much to speak of to begin with). This did not make a difference. I am not sure what is going on. PLEASE help!

I had this same problem when I was restoring as well. Are these the Recovery Discs you created or did they come with the system? I had to call up HP and tell them the situation. Since you only get one shot at creation of the discs, there is no way to recreate them. They were kind enough to send me their set of discs at no charge. I'm assuming it was because I had done my job of creating the discs as directed, but the system botched the job. Good luck. I'm sure they'll do the same for you.
