When using the HP recovery disks for the G56-129WM notebook, I get the following error: Fail to create D:\SDV.FLG
I have redone the computer twice and have gotten the same error twice. Then it takes forever for the computer to come up when turning it on. Is there a way to fix this error or are the recovery disks bad?

Shutdown the notebook. Tap away at f10 as you start the notebook to enter the bios menu. Under the Advanced or Diagnostic tab you should find the facility to run tests on both the Hard Drive and Memory. Post back with the details of any error messages.
Also post back with the operating system and version you are trying to reinstall ( ie Windows 7 64bit ).
