Who do I create DVDs from my recovery manger on HP to restore it.

I have a HP Pavilion dv6 3170se i7 intel proccesor.

I want to create a DVD from the Recovery Manger program, but the option is not avalible, it wont let me press it.

Can somone give me a fix or suggest an alternative way to restore the laptop to its factory settings.

Currently running Windws 7 ultimate x64, if its any help.

Did your Laptop come with Win 7 Ultimate installed?

I did look at them. And none of them work because the recovery manger says no recovery partition exists.

I upgraded it to Ultimate x64 via "Windows Anytime Upgrade"

It should yield a new set of disks, however it seems your Recovery Manager has stopped working correctly after the Anytime Upgrade.

You should be able to trigger the Recovery Partition to run from boot using the F11 key, if the Recovery manager will not work to do so after Anytime Upgrade.

However the best Recovery option for your situation is a backup image made of your upgraded Ultimate install after Upgrade when it is running best. Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

Remember that HP has the worst load of preinstalled factory crapware in the industry, so I'd consider Clean Reinstalling Win7 Home Premium then Anytime Upgrading again if you really need the few extra features in Ultimate.

I'll start on doing that now, but I have a 1 TB removable hard disk. Can I use tthat to put on it the Image backup? or does it have to be completely empty?
