Creating Recovery Disc 2 failed

HP Recommended
Pavilion s5-1414
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

While creating recovery discs, on disc 2 the pc said “ insert a usable dvd “ so I did and it then said “ creating disc 3” so does this mean I will never have a disc 2 since we get only 1 chance?

Hello
it's curious, this computer is very old, how is it that the recoveries are only done now ...
Possible that since the time, that the system is not ok any more, dvd not completely compatible, so new ...
So the computer, actually dvd n1, dvd 2 was not made, only n3 was burned?
It may not be able to work at all.
From memory, but it was under windows 7, there was verification of the dvd, and as long as not burned, it started again.
You cannot verify I think, if you start an installation, but the DVD 2 is required, but it was not done, you will certainly not be able to go until the end of the recovery , you risk to be blocked ..
The best advice I have is to create a disk image with specialized software
If the system at this time is working fine, at least you have an emergency exit

Troubleshooting HP System Recovery Problems (Windows 😎

 

  I get an error when creating discs, what can I do?

Create discs from Windows safe mode using a different brand of disc.
Disc compatibility or other software is likely interfering. Safe mode prevents non-essential services and software from opening when Windows loads. Open Recovery Manager while in Windows safe mode to create your discs. For more information about Windows safe mode, see the HP support document HP PCs - Windows Safe Mode (Windows 10, 😎. If problems persist, use new discs of a different, high-quality brand that you trust. HP recommends using the DVD+R format with your drive.
