Ok my friend

Yeah I could but might as well let them do it they might kick up about me shoving in a new drive and like I said I've got Desk 1 & 2 plus an old XP I'm playing with at the moment - experimenting with new little apps so I don't mess up the mains'..

Actually I rather like those tutorials with the security and tools plus the gadgets - you must have put an awful lot of hours into what you have done I am so impressed, and I think you are a gentleman and a scholar - nothing to do with cliches' and no BS!!

Well for that matter I am totally impressed with the whole forum it's always so pleasant in here anyway with the others too never been growled at, mocked or demeaned even though I admit to being a very non savvy person.

Well, what do I do when the recovery options window doesn't come up? At first I tried the normal launch startup repair option, but the window that has options or whatever never comes up. Its only the blue screen like in your screenshots and then the mouse. Its the same when I try to use a disk. Please help!

Hello JadaMarie, and welcome to Seven Forums.

What type (ex: retail, OEM, etc...) of disc are you using?

At which step in the tutorial is it not the same?

You might see if it will using a created System Repair Disc.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I am using a Windows 7 repair disk. I get to step 5 where I have to select my opersting system, however there isn't an operating system to choose. I clicked NEXT anyway and get to the screen to select the system recovery option that I want. I want to do a system restore. I want to restore my computer to factory. I choose this option and it says that I have to restart and choose an operating system to restore. Not sure what to do.

Hello Hickmansgirl, and welcome to Seven Forums.

A system restore is not the same as factory restore/recovery.

If you could post back with what brand and model of computer you have, and if it's a laptop or desktop, I'll be happy to see if I may be able to find and post back with how to do a factory recovery on it.

It is an HP G60-519WM Notebook. I was originally trying to do a factory restore and got an error message. When I tried to reboot it, I got a message saying "No Bootable Device- Insert Boot Disk and Press Any Key". Memory and hard disk passed tests. I then downloaded a repair disk and booted my computer with it.

The link below will help show you how to using the "HP Recovery Manager" or "HP PC Recovery" if you are able to start Windows 7.

Windows doesn't work. I tried to get to the recovery manager by pressing f11 but it takes me to the same place. Is there a driver I can download to where my operating system will show in step 5?

You might see if you may be able to use the tutorial below and your repair disc at boot to repair the boot manager with.

Bootmgr is missing - Fix

Did you ever previously create a set of HP recovery discs that you could use to do a factory recovery with instead?

If not, then you may need to order a set of recovery discs for your specific computer's model number at the link below to use to do a factory recovery with.
