Yes the recovery disks are all you need, they will in fact format the drive for you so you dont need to do it first.

Free recovery disks for hp pavillion zd8000 with windows 7


As far as I know, the original zd8000 operating system is Windows XP. If you have Windows 7 installed, then you need to get Windows 7 disc and its product key. If you need the Windows XP reinstallation media, then you can use HP Windows XP reinstallation disc only (for example: HP Windows XP Professional with SP2 disc).

Hp screen wont start up i just get the blue hp screen f10 = start up esc= boot menu f11=system recovery f9 = dignoses when i pree these buttonms nothing happens tried unplugging everything and still...


If pressing F11 ("system recovery") does nothing, then your disk-drive, which contains a "system recovery partition" is inaccessible,
i.e., your disk-drive has failed.

You'll need to buy a new disk-drive, install it, and use the original "System Restore" set of CD/DVD disks to reinstall Windows onto the new disk-drive.

HP Pavillion DV9000t ''Unrecoverable error has occured''


The recovery disk is defective so the install is bad. Install using another disk (even a generic retail one of the same type will do) and your key.
