If the recovery disks are those you made yourself using the HP utility, or if they are HP Recovery Media you obtained from HP, then all you have to do is boot from the first disk, follow the directions, and your PC will be restored to its original condition when it came preinstalled with Win8.

Good Luck

Will those "recovery" disks work to "recover" your computer to the original factory-installed operating systems, namely Windows 8?

 

I looked at: https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-pavilion-500-a00-desktop-pc-series/5374062/model...

 

but did not see an option to order a "System Recovery Set" from HP.

 

Take a look at:  www.ComputerSurgeons.com  -- they might offer that set for your specific model.
