HP DV9000 Reinstall Vista

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.

Ordered a set for it. Still won't load. Wondering if vista CD needed to allow new HD video o be seen. I read making an iso vista boot on USB will allow CD drive and HD to be found.
