Re: restore HP LAPTOP
Differences between Windows System Restore and HP Recovery Manager
Windows System Restore is sometimes confused with HP Recovery Manager. To
clarify, Windows System Restore is not the same as HP Recovery Manager.
System Restore enables you to return the computer to a previous restore
point, which resets all of the settings for the operating system to those
settings that existed at the time that the restore point was created. None
of your personal data files, such as email, documents, or pictures are lost.
HP Recovery Manager differs from System Restore in that Recovery Manager
returns the computer to its original factory condition. All of your personal
data files are lost.
Press the Power button to start the PC and immediately press the F11 key to
open the HP Recovery Manager.
WHERE did you get these DVD's ?
Did you make them ? did you buy them ? If you nought them, these are the
correct DVD for your PC ?
Do not try to restore your system by accessing the DVD's in Windows on the
target PC - BOOT the DVD
If disk drive boots first , change the BIOS setting. Then watch window at
startup and select Y to boot DVD.
Insert DVD - pc should boot the DVD and prompt you through restore.
I am confused about the ntldr message ... on the ORIGINAL you do not see the
message buy if you copy and try, then you see that error on the copy ?
1. So the original does NOT get an ntldr error ? Meaning it CAN read boot
2. How did you copy ?
Steps SHOULD be:
1. Insert DVD
2. Power up
