Creating a RECOVERY DISK on the HP Notebook
It is increasingly difficult to buy a laptop with the installation disk of the S.O and the drivers, to reduce the cost of production manufacturers have chosen to leave a “picture” of Windows ready in the own HD in an exclusive partition for such.
On this partition is an image of the clean installation of the system as well as the drivers and programs that the manufacturer provides. But it is possible to create and burn this bootable cd or DVD image for future installation.
But let’s get down to business:
I will use as an example the HP Pavillion DV7 1020us notebook plus the process is the same for most, so come on …
1- Creating the Startup Disk:
* Connect the power cord.
* Log in to Windows.
* Go to START> ALL PROGRAMS> RECOVERY MANAGER> Recovery Disc Creation
* then continue.
* It will start to prepare the files for the disc recording. Please wait … this process may take up to 30 minutes depending on the configuration of your machine.
* Finished the data creation process, it will ask you to insert the disks as in the examples below:
* I did the recording tests with Dual Layer media and did not get satisfactory results, and I ended up opting for the DVD.
* Once the recording is finished, just label the media and save.
* When it is necessary to restore the system to the disks, just boot the DVD and follow the instructions on the screen.
– To restore directly from the Recovery drive recorded in the HD, just start up the Notebook, still on the Post screen press the F11 key and follow the instructions.
