Hi:

 

Put disk #1 in your notebook and reboot it. Then at the beginning of the HP welcome screen, tap the F9 key to launch the one time boot menu.

 

Select the DVD rom drive and hit the enter key.

 

Then watch the screen carefully for a message that states in substance "Attempting to boot from DVD. Press any key to boot from DVD.

 

Press any key and the PC should boot from the recovery DVD.

 

Follow the on screen instructions.

 

Paul
