I have a HP Pavillion a6214x with Windows Vista. About 3 years ago I created my Recovery System with 2 dvd-r disks
I never had any trouble creating the disks and my HP Troubleshooting and Maintenance guide said I could use either
the dvd-r or dvd+r. But, the other day a HP support tech said use the dvd+r for creating System Recovery disks. If that is the case,do I have to start all over again and create Sytem Recovery disks on dvd+r's?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Creating the DVD's has always been a one-time event. I would be surprised if it worked.
HP can tell you how to reset the utility.
Notice by HP about using DVD+R

You could always make a copy of the disks on different medium.
A good cd]dvd software can easily accomplish this.

Thanks for the answer! It is good to know that I can create recovery system disks on a dvd-r as well as a dvd+r.
I greatly appreciate your timely response and expertise.
