HP Pavillion dv6500 restoring to factory setting

I am trying to restore my laptop to factory settings using recovery disks created at the time of laptop purchase. After restore


when it restarts it says:

windows is loading files, then screen comes with the following message:


Startup Repair is checking your  system for problems...


After which it says, Startup Repair cannot repair the computer automatically.

Problem details shown are:

Problem Event Name:         StartupRepairV2

Problem Signature 01 :       AutoFallover

Problem Signature 02:        6.0.6000.16386.6.0.6000.16386

Problem Signature 03:        0

Problem Signature 04:        65537

Problem Signature 05:        unknown

Problem Signature 06:        MissingOsLoader

Problem Signature 07:        0

Then it says Click Finish to exit and shut down your computer.

It also gives link for advanced options for system recovery and support.

I tried this also and again same steps on restart. Please advice.

Can you cancel the startup repair and move on to the HP restore process?


You can also try restoring from the hard drive using F11 at the very start of the boot process by tapping F11 repeatedly when you first power up the PC.


Scroll down to: Restore the PC to its original condition with the HP Recovery Manager if Windows Vista is not accessible

It does not allow to cancel startup repair.

I tried restoring using F11 but same thing happens again.
