Windows 7: Need help with Recovery Manager

So you have the Recovery Disk set already made from the Recovery Partition. Have you tried booting it to see if it will run?

There are three ways to run your Recovery partition normally: Look in All Programs to find the same Recovery Manager which helped you burn the disks to run Recovery from there.

Next you can run Recovery by tapping the key given on first boot screen to Run Recovery from boot. Go to HP Support Downloads webpage for your model computer to read the Manual to see the exact steps, or consult your setup literature.

Finally, you can boot to run the Recovery Disks you made.

Be sure to back up your files first, and gather your program installers. If you lost any Product Keys for programs you installed (like Office) then audit them from the HD using Belarc Advisor.

My doubt is about the set of disk. How to use them. Now I suspect that they are to boot from them, rigth?

And my other doubt, a bigger one, is if the recovery will work, as it seems that the factory files were modified. So the last hope are the disk, but if they are the same that is inside the partition (the set of disks and the partition have almost the same size), maybe it could not work, unlees the disks were something different...

I'm trying to see HP support web, but now it's not working properly...

If you want to know whether the disks work, then back up your files and boot from them to see if they will run.

You can save a Win7 backup image externally first so you have a way to get back if the disks fail and then the Recov partition fails to run from boot.

Externally backup? So if I do a backup in a partition, it will NOT work then? Or there's a way to backup in a partition and then recover the system from it?

I would not trust backup to a partition if I plan to use Recovery Disks, as they normally are destructive and format the drive first.

However, it may offer you options to save your files if you start Recovery from within Windows, which is why I suggested you check if that works first.

There is no substitute for keeping your files backed up at all times, though. If you have files you cannot afford to lose and don't have an external or secondary HD, send them over the network to another computer or put them on DVD (capacity: 4.7 gb).
