Hello, I think i accidently erased my partition containing windows 7, so i put the first disc in and it loaded the files, then it stated to put the supplemental recovery disc in and click on Next. I did this over an hour ago, is it still doing something? the Cancel buttom lights up if i put my mouse over it, so i thought it is still doing a recovery, Am I correct or is there something wrong. should hit Cancel or wait longer ? btw i had a dual boot with windows 10 but neither will workThanks

Greetings and Welcome to the HP Support Community.
Appreciate you trying the steps. Don't worry, I'm here to help!
Let's try a hard reset and re-initiate the recovery -
1) Shutdown the computer.
2) Unplug all the Adapter and peripherals connected.
3) Press and hold down the power button for 15 to 20 seconds.
4) Plug-in the Adapter.
5) Try to turn on the computer.

Hope this helps!

Hi Thank You for the reply, here is the latest, I had to reinstall my windows 7 Premium but before i backed up (i hope were my documents, pictures etc) any way it took two disks to complete, i have them sitting here now, but i dont know how to transfer them into the reinstall! I open one of the disks up and all I saw was of a bunch of WIM files. what are they and how can i get them installed on my reinstalled windows 7? Thanks
