I have had to use HP recovery disk after a major issue which required me to return to factory default. I have now got the computer up and running again however whilst reinstalling my recovery files from my external drive, using the MINWINPC files we experienced a power cut which resulted in the laptop shutting down during the re install process. The process will not now work any ideas please. The system recovery file was created with restorewiz files placed in it. but the exe file in the minwinpc folder no longer does anything.
Look in your C: drive for a folder called "System Recovery Files". If you find it ,delete it. This is where your files will be restored to and if a previuos attempt has failed it will sometimes prevent next attempts.

I too have a similiar problem, but I have a new HD and purchased the restore CD. The proble I am experiencing is during the restoration my laptop shuts down; no more. The process ends and I try again, but it does not complete the process. Could this be an infected BIOS? HP Tech support could not help. WTF!
