Trouble factory resetting my HP z200 workstation computer.

HP Recommended
HP z200
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hi everyone,

 

I am having trouble factory resetting my HP z200 workstation computer with Windows 7 Pro OS.

There is no recovery partition on this computer.

There is no HP Recovery Manager app/program on this computer.

 

I have the original "HP Restore Plus!" DVD's (3 DVD's) to restore it but I do not know how to use these since there is no HP Recover Manager on the computer.

 

I also tried going into the boot menu (by holding f8) when the computer starts and changing the boot order so that the CD-ROM drive boots first.  Then I tried starting the computer with the first DVD in it.

That doesn't work. 

 

Any advice?

 

Specs:

HP z200 Workstation

I5 Processor

Windows 7 Pro OS

8GB RAM 

 

Thanks

That should have worked. What happened? Error-messages?

Did you insert the 1st of the 3rd disks when the computer is powered-on, then powering-off your computer, then powering-on your computer, and using that "F8" sequence?
