Re: Hp Mini 210 restore to factory settings

If there ia no restore media, then it may be possible to run the restore by checking out this : http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02241565.pdf  starting at about page 76.

Also asked about "how can I format my pc?"  Either make a bootable flash drive or get an external CD/DVD drive so the media found here can be used: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=4093637&docname=c00810334

[ Edited ]

The only way to reinstall the Recovery partition is to run the Recovery.  What is the model number of the mini?

Here is the page to start: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07143&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&lc=en&product=3979...
