The recovery disk is usually stored as a separate partition on the hard disk itself (Mostly in cases of laptop disks), so when ever you purchase laptops with pre-installed Operating System, The very first thing you do is create a CD/DVD recovery disk ie burn the recovery partition on the CD/DVD.
so that you can use the same DVD in case the OS crashes.
In your case as your hard disk was crashed and replaced ask the people from where you purchased the laptop/pc to restore it to the new hard disk, or purchase the Operating System.

hope this clears the doubt

regards

Windows vista recovery cd I created won't install on new hard drive


Which software did you use to create the recovery disk? Is the recovery disk a CD or DVD?

Just to recover a vista system from recovery DVDs would require at least two DVDs. Your files would be in addition to this so I would be very surprised if you have only a single disk containing both the operating system and all of your files.

A simple recovery disk would only be useful for restoring lost operating system files to a hard disk that had corrupted or deleted files. It would let you restore to a new blank disk.

If the disk only contains a backup of your data then you would need to first install an operating system (Vista or Windows 7) and then install the backup software you used to create the disk and then you could recover your data from the disk.

Lost data 2.5 disc drive


The damage of hard disk of a Window operating system enabled computer or of any storage media such as pen drive, ZIP drive, etc is the common problem that is faced by the users. But the solution for this is quite uncommon, that is, the software Kernel for FAT - NTFS - Windows Disk Recovery which recovers data loss due to any problem.

MY BUFFALO EXTERNAL HARD DISK HD PXTU2 IS SHOWING 297 GB UNALLOCATED. I THINK ITS PARTITION IS CORUPPTED


Hi guy,
You can try a partition recovery software to recover your corruptted partition.I have succeed to recover deleted partition with Tenorshare data recovery.It can recover deleted,formatted,corruptted partition after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data.
Anyway,you can download a trial version and scan your hard drive for free to check out whether your partition can be recovered. http://www.any-data-recovery.com/index.htm

Computer does not boot


You will need two items in order to bring up the Recovery Console on the netbook, an external dvd drive and an operating system disk that came with another computer (brand doesn't really matter). Before inserting the disk, connect the external drive and turn it on. Then, turn on the netbook and press F2 to go to Setup. From that screen, you will need to change the boot sequence to boot first from the external drive you've connected. Press F10 to save changes and exit. Put the operating system disk in the drive and reboot the netbook. The disk will start automatically loading files and will eventually stop at point where it will ask if you want to access the Recovery Console. Do this and follow the program step by step. At the end, you will type exit at the C prompt, remove the disk and reboot. Hopefully, you will have addressed whatever missing or corrupted file and the computer will start normally. If this works, disconnect the external drive and go back to the Bios to reset it to start from the hard drive. Hope this helps or, at least, gets you on the right track.

Do you sell a downlaodable file for system restore for a medion computer running XP home edition?


No . This is only an answer site to my knoledge.
PC Recovery and Piracy abstand_10423.gif abstand_10383.gif MEDION strongly supports efforts within the software industry to combat piracy, as it helps ensure that customers may confidently buy legal software.
When you acquired your new MEDION PC, MEDION provided you with an option that can be used if you need to recover the genuine Microsoft® operating system that has been preinstalled on your machine.


All of the recovery solutions will address the extremely rare instances of failure due to operating system file corruption or modification or hardware failure. In no way do these options limit your ability to add or remove new hardware and software to your PC, or limit your ability to make a backup copy of the operating system.

The recovery media options that MEDION provides for our variety of products are:

CD Media − which are often called "recovery CDs". This is a CD or DVD clearly marked with the PC Manufacturer's brand that can only be used on the PC you purchased. The media will be included as part of the materials you received at the time of purchase and will include all files necessary to restore the operating system on the PC.

Hard Drive-based Recovery System − Recovery files are placed on a separate partition of the hard drive that can be accessed if system recovery is needed. No CDs are needed and in most cases the PC can "heal" itself.

No Media − the PC does not include a recovery solution. In the event of a recovery situation, please contact the PC Manufacturer.

All MEDION computers that are preinstalled with a genuine Microsoft Windows operating system will have a Certificate of Authenticity attached to the PC chassis.For more details please click here.

If you have questions about the systems recovery option that is available with you machine, please contact: MEDION UK

Start up problem


This generally indicates a hard drive failure. You can try to do an operating system repair with the recovery or operating system disc, but most likely you will need to replace the hard drive.

When you see the IBM screen you need to enter the boot menu. On this screen it tells you what to press to get to the boot menu. Place the recovery or operating system disc in the drive, and select the CD drive from the boot menu, then follow the directions. If the repair doesn't work, then reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If you have any issues during or after the format or install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced. You want to do a full NTFS format, not the quick format, if the hard drive is bad, it won't format.

Can't connect to internet


What's your OS? Win XP, Linux...what? If those are installed correctly, they should automatically find the drivers or prompt you to put in the software disk for it. If WinXP Go to Control panel > System > Hardware Look for any "yellow !" and remove them. Shut down and restart. Should solve your problem.
