Seven Windows to install on my notebook.
Notebook model: pavilion 3000 - dv3655ee
We do want to recover and return to the Windows Vista.
The problem is that I do not have access to the recovery CD and I only drive the recovery.
When I turn on the notebook by pressing the button, instead of the F11 into the recovery console, insert the Windows Seven. And no it is not certain.
Thank you to help me immediately

If you still have the recovery partition on the hdd try this which has worked for many>>>
1.Right-click on "Computer" icon and select manage.
2.This will launch the Microsoft Management Console.
3.On the left side of the MMC, click on "Disk Management" and it will show you all of the partitions.
4.Right-click on the "HP Recovery" partition and select "Mark as Active Partition."
5.When the warning prompt appears, select "Yes" - Reboot and it will automatically boot into the Recovery Manager.
