I have a Probook 450 G3. Recently, I foolishly allowed Windows to make the last round of updates available for Windows 7 Pro. This installed a broken management engine driver and a tuning engine driver that were actually not meant for 7, and it destroyed the network connectivity on my machine. I was able to remove most of the broken software, but I there are things still broken.
I want to restore Windows 7 but found I do not have the recovery media that came with the machine. This is not listed a an available download, and using a generic Win7 Pro disk does not work correctly.
Where can I get this recovery media? I am willing to pay to have a disk shipped to me.
Those PC's came with a Recovery Partition. If that is still there, you can make a Recovery DVD set or use the partition directly using Recovery Manager. It will not give you a true Windows 7 Pro disk, however, but it will restore the factory install of Windows 7.
I assume that is not really what you want because it will be the original Windows 7 Pro without the updates. Trying to get Windows 7 updated will be a chore and take weeks.
So back to the comment "using a generic Win7 Pro disk does not work correctly." Please explain that and then explain what you want to do. Actually using a generic Windows 7 Pro disk, if genuine, should work and will not be any better than a disk from here, but here is a solution for a proper Windows 7 Pro install disk.
