A small partition on the hard drive contains a record of all software installed at the factory and shipped with this system. This includes images for the Microsoft Operating System and supplemental products. If you have a problem with the operating system or device drivers, the programs on the recovery partition can restore the PC to proper operation.

  • Click Start , type Recovery in the search field, and click on Recovery Manager when it appears in the program list to open the Recovery Manager window.
  • Click Advanced options .
  • Restore the system to the way it was when you bought it.

    If your installation of windows is corrupt or damaged, you may no longer be able to make a recovery disk.
    If you can boot the computer, look in system tools for the make a recovery disk option.
    You could try fixing this installation, try this guide.

    How do i erase all my personal data on my mac mini?


    That depends on what operating system you have. If it's 10.6.8 or older, you need the operating system install discs that came with your computer. Just put it in and restart the computer. When you here the start up chime, press and hold the C key to boot from disc. Then in the utilities bar on the top, select disk utility and then the top left hard drive icon in the side bar do the disk utility application. Go to the erase option on the right portion of the screen and make sure the erase option says MAC OS JOURNALED and click erase. That wil remove all data off of the hard drive including the operating system. After that is done, you can reinstall the OS with the disks.

    if your OS is newer than 10.6.8, hold option after the apple start up chime, this will let you select bootable drives that the computer detects, there should be a recovery partion, select that and repeat the steps in disk utility I mentioned above.

    Key codes wore off sticker can I retrive ?


    There is no option available to retrieve the product key of the Operating System. However, the version of Operating System can be found in System Information page. To view this, perform the below steps:
    1. Right click on ‘My Computer’
    2. From the drop down list click on ‘Properties’.

    This will open the System Information page where the version of installed Operating System.

    Further, your PC is shipped with OEM version Operating System and that does not require an activation when reinstall from recovery manager. However, if it prompts for a product key, then contact HP.

    Hp mini 110-1100 tord says bootmgr is missing


    if you're running in vista cause vista usually have this error, or other OS, you can often fix it right back up using the original Vista installation disk or other os disk, which comes with a pretty extensive System Recovery Tool that's got lots of options (see screengrab). Set your computer to boot from DVD (using the Boot setting in the BIOS), insert the disc and restart. Vista will prompt you for language and keyboard layout options, then ask if you want to reinstall Vista or repair your installation. You want Repair. From there Vista's System Recovery Tool will take over, and lead you down the road to happy vistages again.

    Do i need a windows disk to reprogram my laptop if i erase everything off my laptop?


    Yes.
    However, given the terminology you are using, you better find someone that knows a lot more than you do about computers before performing this task.

    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.
