system restore without recovery disk

i just did a vista system restore, but i didnt use a recovery disk, has anyone done this. i thought that you needed a set of recover disk to restore system. all i did was hit f10 and followed insructions and and then system was set to factory specs. no recovrer disk to restore.

Re: system restore without recovery disk

All HP notebooks come with the recovery software built into the second partition labeled D HP Recovery.  By pressing F11 from the BIOS screen.. you access the recovery manager.

Re: system restore without recovery disk

You can also start Recovery from the  the Start Menu, Recovery Manager. Only problem is_when (not if) the hdd fails you will need a Recovery set to install to a new one. Recovery Manager can also do that task
