HP Pavilion Slimline s3521p Desktop PC
Microsoft Windows Vista

I am looking for a backup of the official HP Pavilion s3521 recovery media. My computer has had a different operating system installed and I don't think I ever created the original backup media. If anyone can help, please get back to me.

Hi:

 

The only place that I know of that would have recovery media for your PC is from this vendor:

 

Computer Surgeons - Recovery Kit FL051AV For HP Model Number s3521p

it's up to you, but your computer isn't working properly?
Original according to the product page, there is indeed vista installed
but it is one of the worst system that exists
If you're willing to spend close to $30 for this, good on you, but you might find another solution.

That is also the only place that I could find supplying the recovery media.

My computer is working properly, but I was thinking that it might be fun to restore it to original condition. I think I created these recovery discs at some point, but I'm afraid they have been discarded over the years. For some reason I installed a pirated copy of windows 7 ultimate on my computer and I think possibly I installed ubuntu and deleted my recovery partition. I'm typing this post from the windows 7 installation, but I was just wishing I had the original setup. I have found this system to deliver a top notch performance with all operating systems that I have installed.
