Recovery Manager not Installed

z400
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I recently bought a refurb HP Desktop. It does not come with the windows disks, so I'd like to create a windows iso to USB or disk as a backup.

 

Microsoft website tells me to contact the manufacturer as this version of windows was a factory install.

 

HP tell me to use the Recovery Manager software. However, this is not installed on my PC.

 

I've looked on the HP software website for my machine and version of windows and there is no Recovery Manager available for download.

 

Does anyone know how I can get the HP Recovery Manager to create my Windows iso backup usb or disk?

 

Thanks,

 

Chris

Not sure this answers the question. I don't want to reset my computer, I just want to get the Windows 7 image files onto a disk or usb, how do I do that?

Will a system restore bring back the recovery manager? Find it had to believe since it prob had a factory reset when I bought it as a refurb.
