Recovery partition not found

Hello,

 

My computer model is an HP p6330f. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit. I actually got this PC during May 2010 and just started getting to making the recovery discs. When I first  got it, I made a disc called the "repair disc" and I assumed it was the recovery disc. I recently found out that I was wrong and so when I try to make the recovery discs, I get this error message:

 

"The recovery partition was not found. Please exit Recovery Disc Creation and then try contacting HP Support."

 

This happens when I use the Recovery Disc Creation program. Right as I open it, I get that error.

Re: Recovery partition not found

It doesn't seem as if ordering them is an option. Whenever I try to do a System Restore, it doesn't let me do that either. There's nothing wrong with my PC or anything, I just wanted the peace of mind knowing I have recovery discs as a "just in case" scenario.

Re: Recovery partition not found

There is no other way I can make them myself?

Hi,

 

If the Recovery Partition cannot be found, your only option is to order a replacement set of Recovery Discs.
