Re: how i can run recovery of probook 4530s

Hi,

 

There are Two options to try and reinstall Windows - the 2nd is the easiest, but you may want to try the 1st to see if it will save you having to order a replacement set of discs - make sure to back-up any important files first.

 

1.  If you can still boot in to Windows, hold down the Windows Key and press R.  Into the Run Box type compmgmt.msc and hit enter.  Click Disk Management in the left pane and when the partitions have loaded, right click the Recovery Partition and mark it as 'Active'.  Close all open windows and then restart - if this has worked, the notebook will boot from the Recovery Partition upon restart.

            

2.  You can order a replacement set of Recovery Discs using the link below.

If you have any problem with this link, order them directly from HP.

 

If you live in the US, contact HP Here.

 

If you are in another part of the world, start Here.



Regards,

Re: how i can run recovery of probook 4530s

When you clikc in the left pane on Disk Management, you can in the right pane right-click in the recovery partition and activate it. You will get a warning that this action could cause start up problems if the partition would have no operating system installed. Just ignore this and continue.

Then close all windows, and restart the notebook.

It should come up in HP Recovery Manager, where you can continue to reload the factory settings.

 

It's now working like a charm for one of our Probook 4530S

Re: how i can run recovery of probook 4530s

I did your first option.......

 

 

1.  If you can still boot in to Windows, hold down the Windows Key and press R.  Into the Run Box type compmgmt.msc and hit enter.  Click Disk Management in the left pane and when the partitions have loaded, right click the Recovery Partition and mark it as 'Active'.  Close all open windows and then restart - if this has worked, the notebook will boot from the Recovery Partition upon restart.

 

Now all I get on restart is an error.    BOOTMGR is missing.   Press cntrl+alt+del to restart.  I hit that and it does the exact same thing.  Now how do I atleast get back to where I was before this.
