Windows 7: How can I disable the "Windows detected a hard disk problem" warning?

When you launch the Recovery Media Creation it will probably tell how may DVD's you're going to need. Normally is 3 to 5.
Have some more in case a disk fails. Burn them at low speed (half the maximum media (DVD) speed). Use DVD-R or DVD+R.

Don't interrupt once you start, or it will say you have already created the disks and won't allow to create again. There is a trick to reset the counter...

Make a couple of sets of the DVDs, if it lets you. (HP only lets you make one set.) Be sure to label EVERY disk.

Do I have to get expensive DVD's or are cheap ones ok?

Yeah, I saw that message saying that I can only make one set. I'll try this tomorrow once I get the DVD's.

Will be back if I have any problems.

Thanks!

Get name brand DVD+R disks. I recommend Verbatim, but don't get the “Life Series” or “Value Series” discs, nor the "gold" disks.

Do not get DVD+RW disks.

Here is some good information on which DVD disks to buy:

Yes. But you'll be able to do that at the time of creation. The disk creator program will tell you how to label each disk.

Alright. One last thing, what kind of hard drive should I look for my HP G56 laptop?

Do you want a big drive, or a fast drive?

If you want a fast drive, get an SSD (Solid State Drive):

If you want a big drive, get a mechanical hard drive:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Seagate-Bar...%3A10625609031

If you don't store lots of data on your hard drive, the SSD will give you more than enough room for normal usage. But if you do store lots of data, the mechanical drive has a lot more room.

Since you have an older computer, I suggest that you go with the SSD.

After getting everything set up on the SSD, you'll need to activate TRIM. TRIM will make your SSD have a longer life.
