Hi,

 

The only way to re-create the Recovery Partition on the Hard Drive is to perform a Factory Reset ( reinstall the OS ) using your Recovery Discs - this will re-create all the original partitions.

 

Try the following to see if you can boot from your Recovery Discs - remember to back-up all your personal files etc first.

 

Shut down the notebook.  Tap away at the esc key as soon as you press the power button to launch the Start-up menu.  Select the Boot Manager option, open the drive and insert the first Recovery Disc and close the drive, use the arrow keys to select the CD/DVD drive and hit enter.

 

Regards,

Hi,

 

If the data in the Recovery Partition has been deleted, the only way you can correct this is to return the notebook to it's 'Factory Condition' using a set of Recovery Discs.

            

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

 

Order HP Recovery Discs.

 

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: recovery partition delete by mistake how can i get it back?

Hi,

 

If there is a problem in getting hold of Recovery Discs, I would suggest the option below.

 

Before trying the following, make sure you can still read the Activation key on your Windows COA label ( 5 blocks of 5 alpha/numeric sets ).

 

First, click the Start Menu, open Computer and double-click Local Disk C - you should see a folder called swsetup.  This will contain all the driver installers and practically all of the software installers for your notebook - back this up to an external device/media.

 

Create a Windows 7 installation disc yourself - just download the correct Disc Image from the link below and use an application such as ImgBurn to burn the ISO correctly to a blank DVD - a guide on using ImgBurn to write an ISO to a disc is Here.  These Images are clean and from a well-respected source, however there are only limited versions available.  Note that you must download the exact Windows 7 version that originally came with your notebook, so if for example your notebook came with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, this is the ISO you must download.

 

Windows-7 sp1-iso-official-32-bit-and-64-bit

 

When you need to, use the disc to perform the installation, enter the Windows activation key found on the COA Label when requested and when the installation has completed, use the 'Phone Method' detailed in the link below to activate the OS - this method supported by Microsoft and is popular with people who just want a clean installation of Windows 7 without the additional software load normally bundled with OEM installations.

 

http://www.kodyaz.com/articles/how-to-activate-windows-7-by-phone.aspx

 

Drivers and software can then be reinstalled from the swsetup folder you backed-up earlier.

 

Any additional software and drivers you may need can also be found by entering your Model No. or Product No. Here.

 

Regards,

Hi,

 

You're welcome :smileyhappy:

 

I agree with you that this would be a good idea, however I don't work for HP and would have no influence in this matter.

 

All the best,
