Re: F11 HP recovery doesn't boot into recovery partition

HP Recommended

Dear Customer Service of HP I want to inform you about all your tips about making the Recovery partition as active is not working at all. I have changed as active and nothing. Is there anything else that I can do

I have pavilion dv9819wm with vista home premium. I've format drive C with windows 7 and now the F11 is not starting the recovery partition. I tried also with the makeing the recovery partition active and still nothing.

I download recovery partition software from official HP site and still nothing. The instalation is starting but at one point of the instalation it says "The recovery manager setup has stop working" and there is no solution online.

Please if you can help me to get my original software.

 

Thankking you in advanced

If you have a working Recovery partition and have set it as active partition but it still not work then your BIOS setting have been overided. BIOS loader may one of the problem.

 

If you knew how to use the BIOS loader you should knew how to uninstall it. The trick is working fine if you knew how to uninstall the BIOS loader.

 

or as posted above, buy HP recovery disks.

I would call HP because it seems this site is does not have highly trained HP engineers monitoring it, although there are many people with lots of experience (not me sadly) who try and help, if you are like me you end up getting lost.

 

You need someone to talk you through each step to reolve your issue.

 

Good Luck

@Peterv37,

 

You are right about it, this is HP community forum, P2P support, very useful for the one that out of warranty. If you need professional help, go call HP, hopefully you are still under warranty if you were not, you need to pay for it.

Recovery Manager Installer Patch for Microsoft Windows 7 Upgrade

 

Download that file for your notebook, but I notice that your HP did not support Win 7. So I guess you can try this one.

When you mark the partition as Active and reboot the laptop_do not press F11, let it proceed on it's own. If that is how you are doing it and it still fails, you have two options.

 

Try the Patch posted above by vidl68.If it still fails, order your Recovery Disk set from your models page HERE

After trying everything you wrote and of course neither worked for me 🙂 The 1 click restoration became a real nightmare but after one day of trying I succeseded 🙂

In my final desperation luckily I found a workaround 🙂

 

My situation:

- make a rescue disc with Paragon Backup & Recovery (Advanced) Free Edition - actually I made it with a pendrive

- boot the laptop with this "disc"

- there is an option (the fourth in my version) to search for possible operating systems on the laptop

- this found my installed Win7 on my drive C and the Vista recovery partition on drive D

- select the vista recovery partition to boot and halelujah 🙂

 

I hope this will help you too!
