Hi:

 

You can order a recovery disk set by telephoning HP support for the country you live in at the link below. If they have a separate phone number for business PC's/notebooks, call that number.

 

You will need to provide your model number and serial number. In the USA the disks go for $10.00.

 

In other countries the cost ranges from free to more than $10, depending on what country you live in.
