Having HP Recovery Manager failed.Errror code=0xEFFFFF08

Hp 200 series Model-2d03TU
Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit)

Hi,

 

HP 2000 series laptop model-2d03TU,Preinstalled Windows 8 64 bit.

Hard Disk error showing during system on.

New hard disk installed physically in the laptop.

Ready with 5 sets of recovery dvds.

Inserted 1/5 dvd while booting ..goes ok...automatic asked "insert disk2#" inserted 2/5 ....this way it goes till last step where "reformatting of windows partition of hard disk" and "copying of files required to restore the hard drive" was done.

Last option "Restoring files to the hard drive" was running in disk no:5/5 ...progress bar was up to 42%.

 

Suddenyl error message pop up saying "HP Recovery Manager Failed code=0xEFFFFF08"

 

With only "OK" option.

 

whole process was roll back.

 

I cleaned the all the dvds & the dvd lens with clean tissue paper and follow the process again, but stuck in same steps.

 

Is this due to media damage (DVDs) or any other issue?

 

HP allow to create recovery disk only once. so no option to create a fersh one.

 

No approval for buying new recovery media.

 

Please help us.

Hi regards to your error code you could just try copying the dvd's on to another blank  dvd's to see if that solves the issue if this lets you do it? As this may be caused by damaged dvd's as you said or this could be another reason that your hard drive could be failing, have you run a diagnostics check at the the start by pressing f1 key i think it is and run hard drive check?

 

 

Let us know how u get on. If you dont want to buy new recovery media then thats the only option you have left.

 

Hope this helps you a little. Make sure you dont have nothing plugged in to usb ports before trying to recover this, also you can try a normal windows disk and install it that way but u may also lose the recovery partition by doing it this way. Again only if you dont want to buy recovery media first...

 

Good luck.

I found this link for informaton for you

http://threadposts.org/question/2422606/HP-Recovery-Manager-failed-Error-code-0xEFFFFF08.html also regarding to reinstalling windows you could just download an iso file for windows 10 burn it to dvd and then see if you get the same error message?

 

This is what I did before but lost recovery partition becareful, anyways apart from that you could try and burn a fresh copy of media you have on to another dvd to see if its the same?

 

 

Let us know how u get on with it.....

 

 

Good Luck
