    Rookie question. "WARNING: Check to make sure that you set the BIOS to have the CD or DVD drive listed first in the boot order." How do I check that, Shawn?

    No worries. For HP computers, you should be able to press F10 at boot to enter BIOS to check in the "Boot" tab of BIOS for this setting. The link below at HP can give you more information on how to boot to BIOS. :)

    Correct as always! If the F10 key doesn't work tap the F1 key repeatedly according to the support page there. Some bioses however may use the F11 if not F2 or ESC keys instead. The Pavillions for the most part will use either F10 or F11 however since the older HP models would be more likely to have used the F2 or ESC keys.

    As Shawn can easily explain as well HP doesn't necessarily manufacture their own boards often at times (often using Asus boards) where each board manufacturer may be using Award-Phoenix, SIS, AMI, or some other bios programming.

    With each OEM there is often a different key assigned as well as when shopping for a new MB to put into a custom case. With Asus boards those will generally see the F8 key while Gigabyte sees the F12 instead. Yet both may see Award used as the bios program.

    The way pc technologies saw rapid changes over the last 15yrs. alone the bioses have also been through a number as well. How about Ctrl-Alt-Esc as the key combination?! Each OEM simply want their own way and no one ever standardized one specific key or combination in all these years. Then you start adding in laptops, tablets, tablet pcs, and other hand helds and the list goes on and on and...

    Hello Dustgb66, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    What recovery option were you wanting to do, and are you still able to perform it?

    System Repair


    For some reason I chose 'Shutdown' instead of 'Restart' after a system repair and it worked?
