There is a Windows7 vLite. Just Google it. Unfortunately I only get the German versions from Google.

Recovery disks are notoriously difficult to manipulate so what are your options?

1) make a fresh set and hope the problem is solved.

2) Order a set from HP, they would be presumably free from manufacturing defects and they dont cost the earth.

3) create an image of the current install with macrium or whichever imaging program you like and restore from that whenever required.

4) restore from the factory partition on the hard disk instead of the recovery disks.

whichever is convenient and possible.

If you have not deleted the Recovery Partition
Pressing the f11 key during startup on a computer with an HP factory image will start the system recovery process even if the prompt is not displayed.

As you would know the HP recovery manager like with other PCs does more than factory restore.
Are you saying you cannot do a factory restore/recovery or are you using it in it's data recovery mode?

The factory restore must work or something is wrong with the restore DVDs or your computer. To get rid of Norton after use Norton uninstall tool.
To backup file/folder or image I would be using Windows or well regarded 3rd party software.
