I'm having problems understanding what it is you want to do ...
In terms of recovery media, that is a set of DVDs and a CD, not a single DVD, If you are interested in obtaining that, more information is provided below.
In terms of a Recovery partition, if you have removed or otherwise corrupted that, the ONLY way it can be created is using the recovery media -- because that erases the entire hard drive, reformats it, and recreates the Recovery partition in the process.
HP Recovery Media is a set of DVDs and a CD, or USB stick, that will erase the hard drive (removing all data, settings, and applications, reinstall the original OS, drivers, and some HP Utilities. In some cases, you may be able to order a USB stick instead of disks. You have to order these from HP; they can not be downloaded.
Once there, input your Product name or number. On your Software and Drivers Download page, select your Operating System and and Version. Click "Update". If HP Recovery Media is available for your machine, down near the bottom of the page, you will see an entry for Order Recovery Media-CD/DVD/USB. Click the "+" symbol to expand that entty and click on Order Media for details.
Or, if you prefer, you can do the same by contacting HP Customer Service:
