If you have the disk... The drivers will still not install correctly using the usual method. Do this: Go to the system applet and find the yellow flag indicating the device is not installed correctly. Click on it and go to the box that says "Update the drivers". Put the disk in your CD/DVD drive and "kill" the inquiry box that comes up. Now tell device manager to find the drivers on your computer and point it to the CD drive. Click Install and they will install fine. You wont even have to re-boot probably.

Recovery disk does not recognize machine

I don't know what you mean by recognizing ..but i suppose it does not start the recovery process..and this may have a few causes..
The first thing to check is if the disk is having an operation system on it or it is just the drivers and factory programs recovery ..In this case you need a boot-able disk with the operation system on it ..and use the recovery disk after installing the system first .
Another thing may be just a boot issue ..If your computer does not have the boot from cd enabled ..this may be an issue my advice is to press f2 on stat and go to BIOS settings ..and look for boot sequence and select the cd /dvd drive as first boot device ..and hard disk the second..and save the changes by pressing F10 ..and restart ..This will make the disk to boot like it should if it has the correct information on it ..It will ask to press any key for confirmation of the disk boot ...and go with the installing .
there is a 3rd possibility in which you have to load the ahci driver for the system first ..cause the recovery disk loads the files but do not see a boot disk ..cause the hard disk by default is set to work on the ahci function of the sata bus..and if you do not load a 3rd party driver for the ahci does not see the hdd..In this case load the driver from a floppy or from a usb ..and go on with the process or just go to bios ..and look for the ahci feature in the advanced settings or in teh devices..and disable it and let it run sata as ide or ide compatible settings with F10 and restart ..It will never ask for driver again and will load the recovery if the disk is functional .
i hope this will help ..cause I covered almost all possibilities but a faulty disk in which case you just have to get a boot-able disk with the operation system you use and reinstall it clean ..and run the drivers after doing it ..and install all programs needed manually .
Please rate my answer if it helps ..and thank you for using our site !..
have a nice day !

Cant install recovery disks after a hard drive reformat!

the recovery disk is designed to repair or restore a system to its previous factory condition and is not a full installation. the formating of your hdd would have erased all the data required for this process to be completed. you can try a recovery utility that may be able to help you at this link. the disk might not have been saved in an .iso format to tell the computer to run it before starting an OS. if this disk is recognized and runs on your system then you will need to attempt a recovery, which is unlikely since the drive has allready been formated many necessary system files may not be able to be restored. at this point a complete new install will be necessary.
Good Luck!

System recovery Floppy

you can purchase locally a usb floppy drive and download some small utilities in the internet that can be fit in the floppy disk, but i suggest that better use memory stick because it is cheaper and you can have more space than floppy disk.
