I have a Pavilion dm1 for which I have tried to create a Recovery Set using a USB flash drive. However, on starting the Recovery Manager, I find I can only use discs......but the Pavilion dm1 has NO disc drive and no facility therefore to burn discs!!! Am I wrong to be completely puzzled by this? Does anyone have any idea at all, other than to purchase an external disc drive which I really do not want to do?? HP will sell me a Recovery Set but again ONLY ON DISC!! Seems absurd that a piece of kit that has no disc drive will only be able to be recovered using a disc! I confess to being a bit computer illiterate so maybe I am missing something. Any help most gratefully accepted.
