Replaced motherboard &hard drive in hp pavilion, now it will not recognize reovery cd


By replacing the Hard drive you have removed the recovery partition with the operating system on it.
Did you make a backup of the Operating system to a set of CD's or just the Data?
If it was just the data you need a new operating system through HP Tech Support. The instructions are here

Windows vista recovery cd I created won't install on new hard drive


Which software did you use to create the recovery disk? Is the recovery disk a CD or DVD?

Just to recover a vista system from recovery DVDs would require at least two DVDs. Your files would be in addition to this so I would be very surprised if you have only a single disk containing both the operating system and all of your files.

A simple recovery disk would only be useful for restoring lost operating system files to a hard disk that had corrupted or deleted files. It would let you restore to a new blank disk.

If the disk only contains a backup of your data then you would need to first install an operating system (Vista or Windows 7) and then install the backup software you used to create the disk and then you could recover your data from the disk.

Missing operating system comment is on screen.


Either your hard drive has failed, master boot record has become corrupt or you've recently installed a new hard drive that still needs to have an operating system installed on it. If the computer has recovery disks, I would suggest using those to reinstall the operating system, as it saves a great deal of time with having to find the drivers for your system. Otherwise, you'll have to reinstall an operating system, then all of your drivers for the devices attached to your system.

Computer will not boot it says reboot and select proper reboot device. it will not allow me to do a system restore by pushing the f10 key. is there anything to do to correct this?? thank you


I suspect that your Hard Drive may have gone faulty... If you cannot perform an F10, then this sort of confirms it. You will have to get a new Hard Drive, and install it in PC, then you will have to install a fresh copy of Whatever Operating System you want. With a new drive, it must be Partitioned, Formatted, and then have the operating system installed from DVD or Memory Stick. If you want to use Windows, you must somehow get, download & burn to DVD, borrow, buy, a copy of a Windows install DVD. Then you go into your BIOS, and set the PC, to "Boot" from DVD, then, insert the DVD & reboot, and then simply follow the instructions that you are given. You will then have to install all drivers, Video, Ethernet, WiFi, Sound, Touchpad, in fact ALL are needed. So you must go to the manufacturers web site and download these drivers to, say, a Memory Stick, or burn to a CD/DVD. Use these and install them after completing the initial install.

I have tried everything Ctrl F11, Ctrl F9, Ctrl F8 and nothing allows me to reset the harddrive


Im not sure that you understood the concept of resetting the hdd...this can be done only by formatting ...and from the windows you can not format but the partitions(drives) that not contain the windows installation ...to be able to format all partitions you have to use a installation cd with the operation system ( a boot-able one ) ..and boot from cd ...by selecting this operation from Bios settings ...and go along with the clean installation not from the recovery partition or cd ...
after you get along with the clean installation and formatted the hdd and remake the partitions ...and finished the installation of the operating system ...than you can use the recovery cd to install the drivers and the factory settings and programs .....
another easy way to do that ..is to hook it on another computer ...and just format it from windows...this will erase it clean ..and you will have to reinstall the OS after that ...

Re-installing operating system


If you boot to the CD (on boot with the CD in the drive you should get a screen with the option to boot to the CD, if your boot order in your BIOS is set to CD ROM before Hard Drive), you should (after loading files for a while) get to a screen that will allow you to select the drive/partition to install to. If trying to install from within the Windows environment it won't happen.
