Hello Phreveonon,

 

Have you changed out some hardware in that laptop prior to doing a reinstal of the OS?

The HP DMI tool is only available to authorized HP personnel.

 

It would be best to contact HP Support for the error. If the recovery media is wrong or faulty in some way, they will exchange it.

I dont know what number you are calling or what country you are in, but I would continue to contact them.

If your number does not work, try the msg or email option via this link...

Is that what a Rep told you or the info in the support page?

I would ask to speak to someone about the issue to find out if the media is working.

Other than that, I could not help you here.

Sorry.

Best I can offer is to ask to speak to the floor manager and explain the situation to him/her.

See if they can exchange the USB recovery media of if they can advise any other info.
