Netbook Question

I just bought a netbook and it has a restore partion that u are suppose to burn to disc which I have done...but I want to transfer the restore from the 2 disc's to a flash drive because if I have to do a restore while on vacation or something like that, there is no disc drive to restore from a dvd drive cause there is none. My question is can I just do a "send to:" from the copied disc's to the flash drive? Thank you for your time gang!:)

Hello canspec.

AFAIK you only get to create the disks one time and the option is disabled after that, once you've created them that's the only set you'll get. Though you should have an option to run the "Factory Restore" straight from the "D: Recovery" partition if the need arises.

Here is something I wrote a while back to use with "HP Factory Recovery Partitions" below though your "F key" may be different.

HP Recovery Center
Be advised that this will take the machine back to the point when you first took it of the box.
The "HP Recovery Center" will give you the option to send to backup anything you
don't want to lose, so have backup media available to use if you choose this option.

With the machine off press the power button, as soon as you do that start tapping the F11 key.
It may take several attempts to do this, if the first attempt fails, try again.
That should take you to the HP Recovery Center. When there just follow the prompts.
It is pretty much self explanatory. From the time you boot into F11 (not counting
any backups you choose to make) you should be back on a working desktop in about
30 minutes. After it restarts just follow the prompts again to finish the process.

If your first option is system restore select no, which should take you to system recovery.
You want to try system recovery not system restore, unless you have good restore points!

My new (subject) machine running Win7 'Starter' still only shows 1GB of RAM in the System interface after my install of a 2GB chip. Is this the result of a setting in Win7, or my BIOS?
