Problem getting recovery disk

I understand that you want to reinstall the Operating System on the computer. Select models have the ability to have the operating system reinstalled from a hidden drive built into the computer. To start the system recovery:
  1. Restart the computer
  2. When the eMachines logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
  3. When prompted with a boot screen, hit the Enter key.
  4. After the system recovery program has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system.
If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available or fails during the recovery, recovery of the operating system will need to be from Recovery Media.
  1. Insert the disk labeled System CD into the computer's disk drive and restart the computer.
  2. When the eMachines logo appears on the screen, press the F12 key repeatedly.
  3. Select either CDROM or DVD as the boot device, this may vary depending on the system.
  4. When prompted for the Recovery CD, remove the System CD and insert the Recovery CD.
  5. Note: If there are multiple Recovery CDs, please insert the first Recovery CD.
  6. After the system recovery program has loaded follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system.

Refer the URL for more information and for the link to order the Recovery media if required.

If the problem states missing operating system, then you will have to purchase an OS be it Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Linux, etc..

If you already have a system recovery disk, then insert that to reinstall your operating system.

If you own a OS installation disk, insert that to install your operating system.

Please clarify further for further assistance.

Hp Pavilion 6701 desktop with ME. Installed Xubuntu OS and removed ME. Want to reinstall ME but recovery disc won't work.

Hard disk needs to be reformatted--start machine and press correct key when "setup" appears in first dialog. Remove hard drive in first screen, then reinstall. Restart computer, should now say: "operating system not found". You need original Microsoft OS disk to reformat drive and reinstall ME. All previous information on hard disk will be lost with this procedure. Recovery disk is used with original OS before Ubuntu. If you don't have original MS disk, suggest going to XP.

Laptop System Recovery

Some way you have lost your operating system. The way to get your computer back up and running is locate your system restore disks. You can use these to reinstall your operating system. The first disk you will probably use is the OS disk itself. You can install your operating system with this disk. If you do not have the restore disks, you can either contact your computer manufacturer and request them, or you can just purchase the Operating System disk, which is kind of pricey, and reinstall the OS with that. Once you have gotten your hard drive reformatted, and your OS reinstalled, you will have to go to your manufacturer's website and download all the drivers that pertain to your specific computer.
