Welcome to HP Support Forums. A really great platform for posting all your questions and finding solutions.

 

I would like to help

 

The new Z drive might be a new partition drive created as a backup for the old BIOS Version. If that is the case you can delete it

 

But before deleting it, please check and confirm it is not the Recovery Partition

 

Keep me posted if you need further assistance

 

Thank you and have a great day 😊

Hi CrazyToad

 

How can I know it’s an recovery disk or not?  

 

Sincerely

Larry

I'm the Riddle_Decipher & I'm writing on behalf of my colleague @KrazyToad as the tech is out for the day, that said, I have reviewed your concern and the entire conversation, did some research and here's what I recommend:

 

To answer your question: The recovery manager/disk will be mentioned under Letter D drive (if not) mentioned as the "Recovery Partition".
That said, here are a few things you can try, depending on the error code you receive. See which applies to your system and carry them out:

  1. Run System File Checker to replace the corrupted Windows system files or Drivers
  2. Run DISM tool to repair Windows image.
  3. Use the Command prompt to rebuild your MBR, using the built-in bootrec tool.
  4. Use EasyBCD or Dual-Boot Repair to repair your BCD file. It also lets you repair MBR.
  5. On UEFI supported systems, you may try the following. Type the following two commands one after the other and hit Enter.

Diskpart

List volume

You now have to select the volume that is labeled ESP. ESP or EFI System Partition is a partition on a hard disk or solid-state drive which adheres to UEFI or Unified Extensible Firmware Interface. In my case, it is Volume 2.

  • Select volume 2
  • Now we need to assign a letter to it. Let's select ‘z’.
  • Assign letter=z
  • Now exit diskpart by using the following command.
  • Exit
  • Next, type the following command and hit Enter: bcdboot C:\windows /s z: /f UEFI /f when used with the /s command, specifies the firmware type of the target system partition, and the options are – BIOS, UEFI and ALL. We used UEFI to generate boot files for UEFI supported systems.

Restart your computer and it should resolve the issue,

 

Keep us posted,
