Accidentally deleted recovery partition and need to run a recovery/repair. No recovery discs. What do I do?


I ran into the same problem with a friends Hewlett-Packard laptop that was 6 years old. Problem is the manufacturers only retain Recovery Discs now for 3 years. I found a company located in England that has been authorized by Microsoft to issue "Original" software discs paired to your paticular machine using your "Service Tag" information from your machine. The company website is as follows:
https://zoftar.com/

I downloaded the OS and driver discs from the internet to make recovery copies for the laptop which was cheaper than getting discs from the company, which is also an option. The downloads I purchased was approximately $45.00 US and was worth every penny of it . Hope this helps!

Is there anyway to decompress the bootmgr or restore my compaq persario cq60 with out windows or recovery disks


No, without a 7 disk you can't do it. Borrow one from a friend, it doesn't matter the version as long it's a retail, not a recovery one.

Lost factory disks for my Compaq Persario sr1103wm know were I could get a new one?


Most HP and Compaq desktop PCs that ship with Windows Vista and XP do not come with recovery discs. Instead, they use a partition on the hard drive. To access a hard drive recovery, turn on the computer and repeatedly press F10 (XP) or F11 (Vista) until a Recovery window opens.

Compaq presario recovery commands


try starting the computer with the disk in the drive, I had to run the recovery disk on my compaq a few years ago, I think the disks pretty much tell you what to do. If you want to wipe it clear and lose everything type fdisk in the start/run prompt field. Then the recovery disk puts it all back to factory .
