Own HP DV9000 Pavillion notebook. Original hard disk is dead. Install new HD and now trying to reinstall Vista using recovery disks that were created just before HD died. When trying to boot using the DVD goes for a few minutes and they says "Operating System Not Installed" (clever). After that nothing happens. I thought the recovery disk was supposed to reinstall the OS Vista to its original state. What am I missing ??

If you didn't burn a Recovery Disk set you need one to boot from.HP doesn't usually have them for older Vista machines but places like www.computersurgeons.com carries a large selection. You will need the 'Full' model number from the Service Tag attached to bottom of laptop to find the correct set.
