Ive lost a recovery disk and now i cant reinstall,is there any way i can download off the net and make new recovery disks?


Two seperate issues. You can order new disks on ebay for example but if your product key is unreadable you need to purchase a new key.
See this link to buy - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Microsoft-Windows-Home-Premium-inkl/dp/B008OT79T4/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1426423337&sr=8-2&keywords=windows+7+coa

How to recovery a hp envy dv7


It depends on which operating system you are using. Here are instructions for Windows 7:
  1. Click on Start -> All Programs -> Maintenance.

    Tip: An alternative is to execute from the Run box or a Command Prompt window. If you do that, you can skip to Step 3 below.
  2. Click on the Create a System Repair Disk shortcut.
  3. Choose your optical disk drive from the Drive: drop-down box.
  4. Insert a blank disk in your optical drive.

    Note: An empty CD should be large enough for a System Repair Disk. I created a Windows 7 System Repair Disk on a new Windows 7 32-bit installation and it was only 145MB. If you only have a blank DVD or BD available, that's okay too of course.
  5. Click the Create disk button.

    Windows 7 will now create the System Repair Disk on the blank disk you inserted in the previous step. No special disk burning software is required.
  6. After the System Repair Disk creation is complete, Windows 7 displays a dialog box that you can close by clicking the Close button.
  7. Click the OK button back on the original Create a system repair disk window that's now showing up on your screen.
  8. Label the disk as "Windows 7 System Repair Disk" and keep it someplace safe.

    You can now from this disk to access System Recovery Options, the set of system recovery tools available for the Windows 7.

    Tip: As with a Windows 7 installation disk, you'll need to watch for a for a Press any key to boot from CD or DVD... message on screen, right after your computer turns on or restarts with the System Repair Disk inserted.

Need a new hard drive but have no windows vista disk


You don't.
Do you have backup software? If so, do a "disk and partition" backup. This essentially creates an image of your system, even if you have multiple hard disks. Decent backup software (I won't mention any brands except the one I use: Acronis) will allow for a boot time recovery of your entire system, either by inserting a post-bios command -- which will appear on your screen before windows startup with a message like "Press F12 for system recovery", or you should press whatever key your system allows for boot order and boot from the recovery disk you can create from the software.
You can even now immediately create a Windows backup to an appropriately sized USB mounted disk (even the terabyte ones are relatively cheap) and a Windows Recovery Disk...the recovery disk should be inserted and use boot order F-key...good luck

I have an HP Compaq tc4400 that I got from an old friend that had no use of it . but when I turn it on it says Non-system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready but I dont have a disk ....


It sounds like there's a problem with Windows (assume that's the operating system it used to have). I think you'll need to get a Windows install disk. Installing Windows is actually not that hard, and it sounds like you've got nothing to lose.

If you don't have access to a copy of Windows, why not try out Windows 8 - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/windows-8/release-preview

I assume it'll only be free for a few more days as Windows 8 will be released in under a week now.

Hope that helps.

Cheers,
Derek.

This error is when you try to use OEM recovery disks with a non OEM hard drive. The company recovery disks will not work, they do this to prevent software fraud. Sorry to say you will have to purchase a copy of windows and start over :(

Formatted acer aspire 5736z with windows 7 ultimate and finished but operating system not loading and takes me to recovery screen tried recovery but still takes me there again and again, tried to boot...


Please take a close look at the disk you are using to install "Windows 7 Ultimate". It is definitely a "Recovery Disk" for Windows 7 Ultimate. You cannot install Windows 7 with a recovery disk. Recovery disk always is used to repair corrupt or damaged files of Windows OS and requires that the Operating System is already installed. You need a "Windows 7 Ultimate" Installation disk to install Windows not a recovery disk for Windows.

I want to do a complete recovery/reformat of a Benq Joybook S73G. How do I do that? I have the original disks with copies of software, drivers etc, but none of them seem to be a ''recovery disk''.


First, a recovery is not a format, you usually have to make the recovery disk, if one is not supplied. Are you sure the disk you have is not the recovery, are you sure it the windows disk.

There are three way's, re-install the operating, recovery, system restore.

System restore, and recovery can turn the laptop back to when you first got it.

You should try system restore first. I can't explain how to install windows, its pretty long.

Look at the disk, does it say windows xp, or vista, or does it say windows recovery.

If you really want to re-install windows, Go to the website below and study it, or print some of it so you understand it.

It has pictures and will walk you through it.
This is for XP.

This is for Vista;

Does any one have gateway GT5220 Installation disk ?


Create an ASR Floppy Disk loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); The following steps can create an ASR floppy disk from an ASR backup operation: 1. Format a 1.44 megabyte (MB) floppy disk and insert the disk into the floppy disk drive of the computer. 2. In System Tools, start the Backup program. When the Backup and Restore Wizard is displayed, click Next. 3. Click Restore Files and Settings, and then click Next. 4. In the What to Restore dialog box, select the media that contains the ASR backup. Ensure that the media is inserted. 5. Expand the Automated System Recovery Backup Set that corresponds to the ASR floppy disk that you want to create. 6. Expand the second instance of the drive letter that contains the system files. Expand the Windows_folder/Repair folder. 7. Click the following files from this repair folder: Asr.sif and Asrpnp.sif, and then click Next. 8. At the Completing Backup or Restore Wizard screen, click Advanced. 9. At the Where to Restore screen, set the Restore Files to: dialog box to Single Folder, and then set the Folder Name dialog box to the root of your floppy drive, for example, "A:\". 10. Click Next. The other options in this wizard are optional and do not affect the transfer of files to the floppy disk. When the wizard is finished, the files are copied to the location that you had previously specified. The ASR floppy disk is ready for use in the event of an ASR restore operation.

NOTE: The Asr.sif and Asrpnp.sif files must reside on the root of the floppy disk drive to be used during a ASR restore operation. Starting the Windows Recovery Console loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To start the Windows Recovery Console, use one of the following methods: • Use the Windows Setup floppy disks or the Windows CD-ROM to start your computer. At the "Welcome to Setup" screen, press F10 or press 'R" to repair. After you start the Windows Recovery Console, you receive the following message: Microsoft Windows(R) Recovery Console

The Recovery Console provides system repair and recovery functionality.
Type EXIT to exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer.

1: C:\WINDOWS

Which Windows Installation would you like to log on to
(To cancel, press ENTER)? After you enter the number for the appropriate Windows installation, Windows will then prompt you to enter the Administrator account password.

Note If you use an incorrect password three times, the Windows Recovery Console closes. Also, if the Security Accounts Manager (SAM) database is missing or damaged, you cannot use the Windows Recovery Console because you cannot have correct authentication. After you enter your password and the Windows Recovery Console starts, type exit to restart the computer.

When you use Windows XP Professional, you can set group policies to enable automatic administrative logon.

Use the Winnt32.exe utility with the /cmdcons option to add the Windows Recovery Console to the Windows Startup folder. This procedure requires approximately 7 megabytes (MB) of hard disk space on the system partition to hold the Cmdcons folder and files.
