Can I download the hp recovery tool and use blank cd's instead of a usb drive.

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Good day everyone

I was wondering if I could ask some questions about

Official HP Recovery
Media for PC !


I was wondering if I could  use blank Cd's to download the hp recovery tool from Hp?

This hp tool for recovery is for Windows 10.

I was also wondering do you have to use a usb drive only or can I use blank cd's to make a recovery media for my computer?

I was also wanting to now will the hp recovery tool work fine with an expired warranty?

This Recovery media recovery tool just came through yesterday in Hp Support Assistant on my desktop.

If the file size exceeds 8.5 GB then it wont fit onto a DVD, and you need to create your own method.


Obviously you could just make a Windows10 DVD form Microsoft...


by downloading the .iso and burning onto a DVD, and adding all the drivers from HP, or have them on a second disc.


This is quite often the better method.
