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

Quote:
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

Quote:
D:
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

Quote:
Tools > Folder Options > View >
, select

Quote:
show hidden files and folders
, and uncheck

Quote:
Hide Extensions for known File types
and uncheck

Quote:
Hide protected operating system files ( Recommended )
. Then you must be able to view a folder named

Quote:
miniNT
and inside this folder
Quote:
System32
.

Make sure you have two files inside the D:\miniNT\System32 folder, the first one

Quote:
MBRInst.exe
and the second one

Quote:
MBR.ini
now go to
Quote:
Start > RUN >
type
Quote:
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

regards
