Where to get recovery media

HP Recommended
HP 635
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I need some recovery media for a 635, can't figure out where to get it from. No links on the drivers and download page. The computer now has Debian on it which works ok, except installing proprietary drivers is a bit more work than in Ubuntu. Anyway it's for my brother and I think he prefers Windows. I also want to know how much the hard drive hardware kit costs because the screws for the hard drive is missing. Maybe I can get screws like that elsewhere? Says in the repair manual they're called Philips M2.5x6.0.

Hi

 

The screws are Metric, 2.5 mm dia and 6mm long with a Philips head.  2.5mm is about a tenth of an inch & 6mm is about a quarter of an inch, 25.4  mm to the inch.  So any decent hardware shop might have them, in the UK they are used for electrical plate switch covers.  Farnell or Newark etc etc.

 

DURATOOL
M2.56 PRA2MCS100-

Pack of 100

1+ $2.80 per pack.

 

Pozidriv is not Philips even if they look the same, they aint.

Hi:

 

If you live in the USA/Canada, call this number to order a set of recovery disks.

Have the serial number fo the PC handy to give to the customer services rep.

 

A set costs around $10 delivered via 1st class mail.
