- Using restore discs? ? ?

Thus I have two complete sets of Restore discs, including the Windows XP
Home restoration disc.
I now need to restore one of the laptops to the original out-of-the-factory
But I don't know which set of discs goes with which laptop?
They look identical. Does it matter which I use?
Re: Using restore discs? ? ?
models, it might matter. But since they are the same, it doesn't.
Unless there was a revision by HP in the software load, the two sets of
CDs will be identical anyway. If there was a revision, they might have
some differences in them, but either should still work ok. A "purist"
might put the CDs into a computer and look at the file dates to see
which was the later of the two if they were different (however,
depending on what changed and why, there might be a reason for
preferring the earlier one).
