If the main issue is missing drivers you can either download those directly from HP or use a program like Fresh Diagnostics or Aida32 to identify each piece of hardware on the system and then go to each manufacturer's website and download the drivers specific to the hardware.

Missing Operating System on D: partition Bootup


Follow the steps from this site http://www.wikihow.com/Change-the-Active-Partition-of-Your-Hard-Disk-with-Parted-Magic. When you changed the active partition you told the computer to look for information from the wrong partition. Using the program from that site will allow you to make the other partition active again. You'll then be able to boot into Windows again. As far as making backup discs, I believe you hit F11 while booting to access the recovery partition. From there you can make your recovery discs. Not 100 percent sure on that though. And you will need to get the windows partition set back as active first.

How to restore to factory settings


You should have either a recovery partition on the hard drive or a set of recovery DVDs. HP tends to favor having both available. Power on the computer and you should get options such as Press F9 for boot menu / setup press F# for recovery. Press whichever key it states for recovery (typically it is F11). It will load into a recovery GUI select destructive recovery/restore This will delete everything and restore the computer to factory defaults. If you need to go the DVD route. Insert the first DVD and reboot the computer. Make sure that the computer is in boot from DVD drive first.

I just restarted my HP and now it says there is no hard drive and I dont have a recovery disk


try disconnecting the drive and reseating it first.

If you enter the bios (f10 on startup) does the computer even detect the drive? If not - try reseating it - don't forget to power off first

Failing that try the hp recovery partition
1
Press the power button to start the HP. Press and hold the F11 key to launch the HP Recovery Manager from the recovery partition.
2
Backup any files you want to save. Follow the HP Recovery Manager instructions to save any important files before continuing with the recovery process.
3
Continue the recovery process. After backing up files to an external device or CD/DVDs, select the option to perform a system recovery.
4
Obtain and install updates for the HP. After your system reboots, use HP update manager as well as Windows update to restore all critical updates to your HP computer.
5
Make a set of recovery disks. Use HP Recovery Manager and select "Advanced Options" to create a set of recovery disks that can be used in the event that your HP cannot access the hard drive.

I get a 1720 Smart Hard drive detects imminent failure (Failing Attribute: B8) error on my HP EliteBook 6930p which has a Seagate hard rive


It means that the Seagate hard drive is near death. Backup all your data immediately, create a recovery cd starting from the recovery partition situated on your disk (if you haven't done this before or you weren't provided one when you bought it), replace the hard drive and reinstall.

I am unable to repair the windows as some of the files got miss, my security centre is also in off stage only. unable to turn on it. how to resume recovery manager in its original state


Did your PC come with recovery CDs? If not, did you back up your recovery partition to DVDs/CDs when you purchased the PC? If your answer is no to both, then your only option is to use the recovery manager to recover from the recovery partition in your hard drive. The only snag here is that if the initial problem was due to virus, this recovery partition will most likely have been infected with the virus/viruses and may not work well again. But if you have your DVDsCDs then you are home and dry. Just slot in the recovery DVD/CD and restart the system and simply follow the onscreen instructions. Really, it is a piece of cake.

I formated completelly hdd (acer 7720g) i want to to recreate pqservise in order to have d2d recovery(recovery management).i have the dvd recovery of factory settings but the dvds didnt manage to create...


You cant access the recovery partition because you probably has deleted them accidentally. Try to delete all the partitions and use the recovery CDs that come with your computer, they could help.

Good luck.

Cd recovery copy


Hello,

Here is a link with information on ordering recovery media. However, if you want to try to use the factory restore partition, go here.


If you haven't created the initial set of restore cd's you can try this. NOTE: This can only be done once.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

Acer 5050


by default acer 5050 have 3 partitions
1. OS partition (C)
2. Data (D)
3. Recovery partition (hidden).

If you deleted recovery parition, you can't recover your C parition using Alt+F10. Your only option is recovery from cd/DVD recovery that you created. if you didn't create the cd/dvd, you can call acer support to buy the recovery dvd.
