I can not give you assurance that it going to work in HP compaq D530 without disk. If your recovery partition in Hp computer is not damage then it will work and if recovery Partition is damage then it not going to work.

Follow these steps to initiate Hp recovery without Disk:-

Turn off the computer by holding down the power Button for 10 seconds.

Now turn it on by pressing the power button and start pressing F10 key over and over right away as soon as you press the power button.

now You will have Hp recovery screen and from there it has step by step instructions.


Note: Pressing F10 key over and over as soon as you are turning on your computer, if does not bring the HP Recovery screen then try it again.

If f10 does not bring the recovery screen after trying couple of time then try F1,F2 and Delete keys one by one.

Let me know was this helpful.
