Re: How to create recovery partition??????

Hello,

 

Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum. Welcome!

 

I am afraid you cannot create recovery partitions if they are deleted. End users cannot do it.

 

If the computer originally came with Windows preinstalled by HP (e.g. OEM Windows), then you can purchase recovery media from HP. They are usually cheap. You can use it to restore your computer to factory default condition. Here is how to do it:

>> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/bph07143

>> http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-phone-assist.html

 

And once you receive the recovery media [DVDs or USB pen drive], here is how to use it to restore back to factory/Windows default condition:

If the computer originally did not come with Windows preinstalled, but you installed it on your own after that, then you need to use Windows installation media to reinstall Windows. You can get Windows installation ISO images from Microsoft web site and then burn it on a DVD >> https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows8

Re: How to create recovery partition??????

I haven't tried it personally  but they should.

 

Additionally, you will be able to keep this recovery DVD/USB pen drive for as long as you want/need and use it multiple times if necessary.

Re: How to create recovery partition??????

With regards to the price, I can't tell 100% but they are usually around 30$.

 

It can be multiple DVDs (not CDs)  OR  USB pen drive. CDs are too small in capacity. CDs can usually have 700 MB max, DVDs can have 4.7 GB or more (depending on DVD type). USB pen drives can have even more.

 

You can purchase it from HP site, by contacting HP support OR from 3rd party. Here is how:

Should it happen so that HP no longer provides recovery media for your device, you can also check here >> http://www.computersurgeons.com/

Or, you can try a third party freeware, aomei onekey recovery, to create a recovery partition based on your current os. Once something unexpeded happen, you can recover system back under the help of the freeware.
