Have you tried?

Why not make another recovery dvd?

find the following files:

C:\ProgramData\Hewlett-Packard\Recovery\hpdrcu.prc
C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\Recovery\hpdrcu.sys

Add .bak to the ends of each of these files eg: hpdrcu.prc.bak

I don't believe copying a recovery partition to a USB stick will make a bootable USB stick with a Recovery.
I believe one has to clone it onto a USB stick, or onto a DVD.

Maybe you can find something in this HP thread that will work for you.
This is how to make a 2nd set of recovery disks

I don't know what kind of files they are.
You might need to temporarily show hidden and protected files to be able to see them.
