Error while creating recovery discs on HP Pavilion p7-1147b Win7

While creating the 2nd of 3 ea. system recovery discs, I get an error message during the "verifying disc" phase that terminates the process.  I'm using high quality DVD+R 4.7gb discs and have tried several brands.  I had same problem on the 1st disc, but it finally finished after 3 tries - now I can't get the 2nd disc completed to get to the final one.  The DVD burner seems to work fine for other applications. I really don't want to purchase these recovery discs from HP.

Hi,

 

Try creating the rest of the Recovery Discs in Safe Mode as follows.

 

Shut down the PC.  Tap away at f8 as you start the PC to enter Windows Recovery Console.  Use the arrow keys to select Safe Mode and hit enter.  When windows has fully loaded in this mode, launch the recovery disc creator application and see if you can complete the creation of your discs in this way.

 

To exit Safe Mode, just restart the PC and Windows will boot normally.

 

If this still fails to create a viable set of Recovery Discs and you are within your warranty period, call HP ( the telephone numbers can be found on the relevant link below ) and explain that the Recovery Media Creator application fails to create a viable set of recovery discs and request that they send you a free replacement set.

 

If you live in the US, contact HP Here.

 

If you are in another part of the world, start Here.

 

Regards,

Just try this Launch the HP recovery manager, to do this, click "Start" and type 'Recovery' into the search field. Select 'Recovery Manager' from the list of options.

Me too!

 

BUT: If you watch carefully behind the semi-transparent "Please install Battery" screen, you 'll see that the process is going on!!! It finishes smoothly with disk 2, asks for disk 3 and voila! You have your set! Restart normally, and you are done.

 

The recovery software sucks, always. It's not only HP, but Dell, SONY too (personal experiences). Probably others as well. It's ridiculous.
