Unable to create bios recovery disc

I have been trying to create a bios recovery disc for HP Pavilion dv6-7012tx using the setup available on the hp website from a different pc. Whenever I run the setup, the option to create a recovery disc is locked. How do I enable it?
Have tried it on both hp and non hp computers/laptops

Hi @Tardis40,
Didn't you read my question?
I asked about creating a bios recovery disc, not a system recovery disc.

@arunabhdas,

 

BIOS is firmware , not software, and not something that can be put on disc.

You can try to HP BIOS Application Selected Is Corrupt or Missing.

Please keep informed what is happening.

@Tardis40,
BIOS is a set of instructions stored in the firmware. Haven't you heard about InsydeFlash, the bios HP apparently uses on their laptops. And the setup to flash bios is available on HP's support website.
I think you need to get your facts cleared.
