HP System Recovery DVD won't boot: G62-340US Windows 7 x64.

There's no error message or anything. I even have the dvd drive booting first in the BIOS, and all I get after the startup screen is a blank screen with nothing happening. Somebody please help.

Hello Jaron, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you have a OEM factory recovery partition on your HDD still, then are you able to use either option below to do a factory recovery instead?


Restore the PC to its original condition with the HP Recovery Manager

Restore the PC to its original condition using the f11 key

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I've tried both of those options. However the recovery manager keeps saying that there's no recovery partition detected. I know my hard drive's not busted in any way because I installed windows 7 ultimate in hopes of seeing that the recovery disks would load off windows, but that didn't work either.

That's not good. Could you post a screenshot of your Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc) window showing all of your HDD's layout to see if anything may stand out?

When you boot from the DVD, do you get the "Press any key to boot from DVD" message and press a key to boot from the DVD?

Here's the screenshot, and no I didn't get that message. That's the first thing that led me to realize that there's something wrong.

Well, your factory recovery partitions appear to be intact.

Are you able to boot to the boot menu instead of BIOS, then select to boot from the DVD?

Do you have a Windows.old folder? If yes.
Try opening the HP Recovery Manager from Windows.old,

I can't help but wonder why the SYSTEM partition (the first one which has no drive letter) is over 7GB large and almost full...it would be interesting to see what's in there, and if the recovery data wasn't damaged after all.
