You cannot successfully restore the same way again when it has been aborted. You need a windows system disc and the drivers for your machine.
Disk can be downloaded as an ISO from Microsoft and the drivers direct from hp when you have the system working again.
Most times the recovery discs don't work. Why not just get an operating system disk and reinstall the operating system?
Have you tried doing a System Restore? System Restore will let you
select a Restore Point (date and time) before you started having
problems. System Restore will not delete your data, documents, music,
pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the
Restore Point you selected). System Recovery on the other hand will
delete everything and set your system back to the point when you first

It's probably wanting you to insert some restore discs into the cd/dvd drive.
Some manufacturers leave it up to you to create the restore discs when you first purchase the system. Some put it on the hard drive for you, which sounds like is not your case. Don't sweat it because most times the restore discs that users have to create don't work.
Have you tried doing a System Restore? Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. Select a Restore Point (date and time) before you started having problems. Unlike System Recovery that takes you back to factory defaults and deletes everything, System Restore does not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the Restore Point you selected).
If System Restore does not work for you, then you can always Reinstall your Operating System.
Step 1 - Turn off the playstation 3 by holding the power button on the front of the unit till the power light is red.
Step 2 - Touch and hold the power button, you will hear the first beep, meaning the playstation 3 is powering on.
Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep, indicating the video reset.
Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you
will hear a third beep and the system will power off (power light is
Step 3 - Touch and hold the power button, you will hear the first beep, again for the playstation 3 to power on.
Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep for video reset.
Continue to hold the power button and after about another 5 seconds
you will hear a quick double beep. At this point release the power
button. if you succeeded in activating the safe mode, you will see a
message on the screen saying 'connect the controller using a USB cable
and then press the PS button.
Step 4 - Perform the safe mode options in the following order until
one of the options works for you. If one option works, do not continue
onto the other options.
Restore Default Settings
Restore File System
Rebuild Data Base
Restore PS3 System etc...
You can also try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:
1. Turn off Playstation®3. 2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again. 3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps 4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button. 5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button 6. The Recovery menu will pop up.
The current Recovery Menu supports: • Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System. • Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default. • Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files. • Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3. • Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch. • System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System
If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.
Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).
Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as well as cookies.
You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.
But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.
Thanks for contacting Fixya Support I will be glad to assist you.
The best recommendation for restoring your System Preferences file if that is what I see you accidentally deleted, would be to use a utility software called Pacifist for Mac (http://www.charlessoft.com/) which allows you to reinstall one application from
the Mac OS X install DVD or CD, instead of the contents of the entire disc.
Try this software and see if this works for you restoring System Preferences back onto your Macbbook Pro. If you find this process does not help, please feel free to reply back to this post.
