What you need it for??? you probably have HP recovery DVD ?? Later, when you have nearly filled your HDD with rubbish, you will be happy to have the space back that recovery hides from you...

How and why did you come across this thread 4 months after it was written? Then attempted to answer it by asking many questions in a sarcastic manner?

Last I saw, HP doesn't give you recovery discs. You have to make them yourself...

I was scanning through and saw you had NO replies, so obviously nobody was interested in your problem.... just thought I'd let you know that SOMEone knew you had posted... if you have an attitude about it, then don't answer. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, I see you aren't the poster, no offense meant, joke was intended, not sarcasm....

no problem,

not all HP computers come with recovery discs. Many of them come with recovery partition inside the computer itself, from which you must make your own recovery discs using provided utilities from HP. (You could also order the recovery discs from HP website, but you must pay)

I assumed he didn't have the recovery discs which is why he tried to boot from the recovery partition. but maybe I'm wrong.

If SofTones has 2 DVDs for the recovery/installation disks, I would suspect that someone burnt those from the recovery partition. From HP, you get only 1 DVD (at least I did after asking for it).

Several months too late, but:

Older HP's came with recovery discs. Today all the new HP's, both laptops and desktops, come with a recovery partition and you have to burn the discs yourself.

If you can not boot to your recovery partition, open the partition in Windows. It let's you burn the recovery DVD's. Depending of the model you need three or four DVD's. Be careful, you can burn these discs only once; the burn option is then disabled and you can not burn a second set of recovery discs.

SofTones, I think we are not in disagreement. You have 4 DVDs but only one is for the operating system. The others are ancillary.
