I attempted to do a full system recovery on my m8100n a few days ago. I was doing a ful reovery because my hard drive was nearly full and I was having problems finding and deleting the BS I no longer needed. So I copied all of my pics, music, and needed files over to my external hard drive and then entered recovery disk 1. Everything seems fine until I put disk 2 in, then it freezes at 21%. Any help would be greatly apprecisted
Its running Vista 32

Be sure to disconnect everything except the keyboard, mouse and monitor.
Be patient as it may take a much longer time.

Hello mjp1531, It may be that the disk 2 is a faulty disk and have some errors.
You might try Big_Dave's suggestion, and if you still cannot get the Restore to run from the DVDs, you might try pressing the F-11 key
when the HP Logo appears and see if you can restore the system from the D: HP Recovery Restore partition.
