Hello again cammy.

You are saying that you lost the recovery manager to install the system recovery, and now that it is gone, cannot install another recovery manager? I don't believe there is a way to get it back, as I am sure that is one of those things that come pre-installed on a computer. If interested, you might look into purchasing software that does this sort of thing for you.


Some of these tutorials may come in handy for you, take a look:

  2. System Repair Disc - Create
  3. Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

You might find it easier to buy a set of HP recovery discs.

You don't say where you live so you'll need to change the region if you don't live in the USA.

Failing that, you say you have a Windows 7 DVD. You could just carry out a clean install with that, and then create a system image backup.

Did you say your Windows 7 starter came with any DVDs, and if so, what is it called exactly (what does it say on the CD)?

Unfortuanately, I am not aware of any method of making this possible.

I recommend following "Seavixen's" suggestions
