Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

 

If the PC will not boot from USB (and a lot of the older Win7 PCs will not), then your only option is to contact HP Customer Support -- telling them they sent you the WRONG Recovery Media -- and seeing if they will sent you the correct media in disk form.

 

If you live in the US or Canada, contact information is on this page: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/phone-assist.html#section1

If you live elsewhere, contact information is on this page: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.html

NOTE: After you get through, stay on the line until you are finally able to talk to some one -- it can take a while!

If you have trouble finding a phone number, then try: 1 (800) 474-6836

---------------------------------------
However, HP Customer Support is generally not available on the weekends, so you might have to wait until Monday to contact them.

IF they will not do that,  a couple of other sites you should check are: http://www.computersurgeons.com/ and http://www.restoredisks.com/


Good Luck
