New hard drive recovery partition

HP Recommended
g72-b49wm
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I had to replace the hard drive on my laptop. I used the recovery disk to setup the new hard drive and reload windows/software ect. But now the recovery option does not work F11 during boot, or through windows going to start>hp>recovery manager

 

What am I doing wrong?

 

Thanks

 

Bill

Hi,

 

Where did you get the Recovery disk ? Because you used new HDD, your Recovery disk won't re-create this option.

 

Regards.

I did look at: https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-g72-b00-notebook-pc-series/4247537/model/4308564

but did not find anything that could be useful to you, but you should take a look for yourself.

 

Within "Disk Management", do you see the "hidden" partition that contains the software?

But, since you have the media to reinstall Windows, do you need to dedicate the disk-space to a copy of the media?
