Re: How to burn HP Recovery Disc without using Recovery Manager?
you can restore the MBR, the procedure is given below and then use the
F11 key to restore your system completely. After that you can burn your recovery discs.
This procedure will perform a destructive restore ( delete all data on the hard drive). So make sure you backup your data before starting out.
The recovery partition is visible as
after a clean install. It may be another drive letter on your system so make sure you change it to D: . Explore this recovery partition, the files may be hidden so you may need to go to
Tools > Folder Options > View >
show hidden files and folders
, and uncheck
Hide Extensions for known File types
Hide protected operating system files ( Recommended )
. Then you must be able to view a folder named
and inside this folder
Make sure you have two files inside the D:\miniNT\System32 folder, the first one
and the second one
now go to
Start > RUN >
D:\miniNT\System32\MBRInst.exe /ini D:\miniNT\System32\MBR.ini /r /q
and hit enter.
restart your system, your system will boot into recovery mode & resotre your system completely, after which you can create your recovery disks.
hope this helps
