HP Notebook 15ay075nr: Restore disk Image

Hello members of the community.

(1) I recently bought a brand new 15ay075nr Windows 10 HP Notebook. I just realize that I need to make a disk Image Restore.

-"Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 500 GB USB 3.0 portable external Hard Drive STAA500105 ' will be enough space to contain the system's image?

-Is there a recovery DVDs I buy on Amazon.com because my country does not sell these types of discs and HP does not accept my Zip Code which is outside of the USA.

(2) my HP Notebook PC is less than 1 year warranty. Can you provide the steps necessary so that I can contact HP for ' use on my PC remote assistance?

Unfortunately Windows 10 gave me many new challenges outside of Windows 7, which seems to me to be an excellent software.


Thank you.

You can use the program manager HP recovery on your computer to create a recovery DVD or USB (USB key only, will not work with any device which is recognized as a HARD drive), regarding the image of the system, in short, Yes, a drive of 500 GB will be more than enough space. Contact HP for remote, ago international support contact information available to support.hp.com, but they will usually only help in the case of something not working do not support how to do something on your computer, you can use this forum or service smartfriend

  • Can I restore my hard drive of a copy of disk image?

    I'm trying to restore a MacBook (Yosemite) 2008 following an irreparable error in the car and I have a full disk image that I took using utility disk in recovery mode until I wiped it off. (Apparently, yes Carbon Copy Cloner did a better job, but I didn't have that.) Is there a way to use it to recover from, or can I only use it to manually copy files on?

    (I also have a Time Machine backup, or at least I think I do, but I am currently faced with a challenge of system administrator password , so I was wondering if there is an easier alternative since the Macintosh HD.dmg is right there on my external hard drive).

    If you have TM I would use apples as described here:

  • Windows complete PC Restore on Vista Home Basic, how to create a system disk image

    In the menu system for Vista Home Basic Recovery Options, there is an option to make a "Windows complete PC Restore". The description of this option says "restore your entire server or personal computer from a backup image. Well, sounds wonderful. My problem is to find the software to create a backup image of my personal computer first. I tried to create an image of my system disk by looking at the "Backup and restore" software that comes with Vista Home Basic. I couldn't find something that was talking about creating an "image" of my system drive. Only the options to back up the disks. Microsoft use the terms 'backup' and 'image' fairly loosely or as interchangeable terms? Im a little confused. My ultimate goal is to create a disk image of my system can be restored very quickly in the menu options of Vista Home Basic System Recovery.

    I guess I'll answer my own question. It seems that Vista Home Basics to create an image of the system has been paralyzed. OK, so I'll look using free Microsoft imagex utility then.

  • Deactivation on the Disk Image Restore or reinstall Windows?

    PS CS5 is on my laptop. I need to reinstall Win7 or possibly install Win8.

    • I can first try to restore a disk image.
      • PS CS5 can be installed on the disk image, I do not remember for some.
      • PS CS5 perhaps cannot be installed on the disk image.
    • I can do a clean win7 install if the disk image is not what I want.
    • I can do a clean install of win 8.

    The question... Do I have to turn off before that or not?

    1. If I disable the disk image already has PS CS5 installed, and I am concerned about the problems.
    2. If I turned off and the disk image doesn't have a PS CS5 installed or if I do a clean install, so I am concerned about the problems.

    What is the best - way to go to get through these hassle of deactivation?


    I would recommend not to disable.  If it turns out that you can not activate your version restored due to current activation you can disable is more, you can be helped by technical support.

    I had a problem by disabling flash pro that prevented me to activate an installation on a new computer and technology (via chat) quickly understood the question and did something that allowed me to activate without requiring deactivation of a previous installation.

  • Restored from disk image. Illegal now.

    This machine ran Vista for a short period, then that before the upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium.  Recently, is a problem that couldn't be fixed by the repair disk.

    I used the disk image created when I installed Windows 7 and an illegal copy of message appeared now.  The registration period has expired, of course, what do I do?

    Very grateful for a quick response.  When I tried to manually save it back OK. He persevered a little longer before you scream for help. Really good to know there is an instant help over there.

    Thank you very much
  • Cannot open encrypted on Time Machine disk image

    I have an encrypted file protected by password in my Macbook Pro.  The folder name is "Enc.dmg" and is kept in the main Applications folder. If I remove the Time Machine backup before a dmg file, it seems theoretically to save.  But when I later enter Time Machine go to Applications and click on the Enc.dmg file, it opens; It is not mount the disk image and invite me to enter the password.  Instead, a non-functional information is displayed.  The box contains unnecessary information. He tells me it's a dmg file.

    If ever, my computer crashes or is lost or stolen and I can't access my file encrypted on Time Machine, I'll be in big trouble.  Is it possible to actually make a dmg properly function in mode Time Machine?

    You restore the file before trying to open it? It should not open in Time Machine.

  • Question about Tecra M4 system restore disks

    I am looking to buy a Tecra M4. Toshiba provide a "correct" restoration method I have no problems with restore disks, but have had problems with windows restore sometimes. They provide a factory restore disc or I have to look at the creation of a Ghost disk.

    I need to know just if I can start lookging for a good approx. ghosting before buying.

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    Hi Robert,.

    Portable Toshiba computers are sold with an OEM "bundle" of the software. This means that you will receive either a CD/DVD that contains an image that can be restored to the full version of the software, or a file preloaded on your laptop from which you can create your own drive can be restored.

    This disk can only be used to completely restore your system to its original factory condition, and you cannot use it to selectively restore files or individual components.

    You can also receive a tools and Utilities CD/DVD that contains specific Toshiba provided to public services.

    If you want to create your own backup copy of your data/system files, then you will need to invest in one of the packages commercial (I use Acronis True Image myself) as well as an appropriate external environment (I use a USB hard drive).

  • System Disk Image recovery and system recovery discs discs

    These terms are very confusing.

    I had 3 HP computers to office over the past 15 years and have always comes to an ERD but my luck could escape and I'm going to need one of them.

    However, I'm confused.  I thought that as HP comes with a drive D: original Image, it would be enough.

    I make records of recovery or system disk Image?  Are they the same?  My HP Advisor on this computer again I do "system recovery discs!

    I would really like someone explain (in novice language) which mean the above and what I need to do?

    I appreciate so much people in the help forums, as I learned more from them than books I have.



    Hello Twinkie3, I suggest making the game to restore HP Recovery disks.  Even if you have the recovery restore D: hard disk partition, it may be damaged or if the hard drive fails and needs to be replaced, you would not be able to access the recovery partition.

    If you have to replace the hard drive, you can only insert disc 1 of the the recovery set and put the system back as it was when shipped. Without these records, you would need to try to acquire at HP for a cost to you, and after a while, they are not available.

    The set of recovery disks cannot be done once and only be used to restore your particular system.

    Normally, it takes 3 DVD discs but can take longer depending on the size of the restore partition.

    The HP advisor don't constantly remind important you to these disk since it's a step in maintaining your system over time.

  • HP G5210UK. Disaster trying to recover Windows 7, cannot access HP Recovery or disk image.

    After a disastrous attempt to install a second OS, I discovered that I can't start windows 7. I tried all published means to affect a repair and I find that I can not restore windows in one of the ways provided leading me to believe that I may have a problem with partitions on my HARD drive, I can't find a way to get repair disk to read my partition recovery or disk image. For all the intentions, I have a PC dead... unless someone can help you.

    on the good side of things, I have an installation for Linux Ubuntu disc so I can be able to get this way, I ask a similar question on this forum.

    This happened everyday and I'm getting frantic, please help.

    Went into Disk Manager and sort partitions on the HARD disk and I am currently Assistant support, but things are rosy.  Good Heath analyst.  In any case, I think it's done, I will run some checks down load all the updates, reinstall my software... but I would call this one resolved.

  • Cannot restore the image of the external drive

    I got a bolt of lightning and the factory hard drive needs to be replaced. I created a DVD boot disk and a current backup system on a USB external drive. Everything goes as planned; I boot on the DVD, Windows loads the files and the cranks Recovery Manager. I go through the guests to restore from system image, that I created earlier and the Manager believes the USB image. All is well until the system tries to install the image and then I get an error: failed to restore of system image. There is no drive that can be used to recover the system.

    The new drive is 500 GB, the old is 650 GB. Is the small size of disc the question?

    I caught a 1 to, a disc, which annoyingly I wants to go to the origin but rather picked up a 500 GB and the restoration seeks to advance. It has at least not out crapped on the date and is trying to restore the image to the new drive. With the fast error when restoring to the 500 GB drive, it seems the image was to remember the size of the partition and reluctant.

  • HP G6: Windows 8.1 to new disk image recovery

    I bought a new drive bigger and harder for my G6. I made an image of my old drive windows and I have a 8.1 windows installation disc.  I think that it is equal to a repair disc. It is in any other operating system. If I set the bios to the legacy that I can boot the disk windows 8.1 but it will not restore the image because it was made in efi mode and active legacy it says it's bios mode. The computer does not start the disk windows 8.1 in efi mode. I tested the drive in another computer and it starts. The computer will boot to a windows 7 or windows 10 drive but not the disk of 8.1. How can I do to restore that image I did?

    Rethinking the computer was in legacy mode when I made the image. I feel pretty screwed by this experience of windows 8 CV.  I had planned to upgrade to windows 10 after that some of the bugs have been developed. Now, it's out of the question.

    OK, I'll try that. I won't recommend the purchase of new laptops to anyone yet. Get a Thinkpad T series used with Windows 7. I know that you could still buy them last year. They last forever.

  • get a system for windos xp restore disk, to fix a computer that you were never created to

    I need to create a restoration/repair disc of the system on a differnet computer so I can fix that does not work, I need to do a restore/repair disc of the system to Windows XP Home Edition. Windows has been installed on the computer when it was purchased and a restore disk has never been. I can solve all the problems with the computer if I can get it just to start, a young user has bad corupted serval files including the firewall. I just need to be able to run windows, fix the files and create a floppy disk to restore incase it happens again.

    It lacks a small detail...

    What happens when you try to start (next to her does not start).

    You can make a bootable CD of XP (no XP media required) Recovery Console and according to what is the symptom of the boot, maybe fix it with that.

    I am confused and do not understand why Microsoft support engineers seem unable to display instructions to make a CD of bootable XP Recovery Console and refer instead to make an ASR disk on a system that will not boot (be able to start seems to be imperative to ensure that the referenced article).  Maybe someone will explain to me how it is supposed to work.

    Describe your current antivirus and software anti malware situation: McAfee, Symantec, Norton, Spybot, AVG, Avira!, MSE, Panda, Trend Micro, CA, Defender, ZoneAlarm, PC Tools, Comodo, etc..

    Here's how to make a CD of bootable XP Recovery Console:

    If you have no XP bootable media (or aren't sure you have) create a bootable XP Recovery CD of Console and do not forget.

    This is not the same as recovery disks that might have come with the acquisition of the system store.

    You can make a bootable Recovery Console CD by downloading an ISO file and burn it to a CD.

    The ISO bootable image file you need to download is called:

    xp_rec_con. ISO

    Download the ISO from here:


    Use a new CD and this simple and free program to burn your ISO file and create your bootable CD:


    Here are some instructions for ImgBurn:


    It would be a good idea to test your bootable CD on a computer running.

    You may need to adjust the computer BIOS settings to use the CD-ROM drive as the first device to boot instead of the hard drive.  These adjustments are made before Windows tries to load.  If you miss it, you will need to restart the system again.

    When you start on the CD, follow the instructions:

    Press any key to boot from CD...

    Installing Windows... going to pronounce.

    Press 'R' to enter the Recovery Console.

    Select the installation that you want to access (usually 1: C:\WINDOWS)

    You may be asked to enter the password (usually empty).

    You should be in the folder C:\WINDOWS.  It's the same as the

    C:\Windows folder that you see in Solution Explorer.

    The Recovery Console allows base as file commands: copy, rename, replace, delete, chkdsk, fixboot, fixmbr, cd, etc.

    For a list of the commands in the Recovery Console, type help at the prompt of commands or read on here XP Recovery Console:


    A good idea before you start things must first verify the integrity of your file system by using the chkdsk command.

    In the command prompt window, run the chkdsk command on the drive where Windows is installed to try to fix any problems on the afflicted player.

    Running chkdsk is fine, even if he finds no problem.  It won't hurt anything to run it.

    Assuming your boot drive is C, run the following command:

    CHKDSK C: /r

    Let chkdsk finish to correct the problems, he could find.

    It may take a long time for chkdsk complete or they seem to be "stuck".  Be patient.  If the HARD drive led blinks always, chkdsk is something.  Keep an eye on the amount of the percentage to be sure that it is still making progress.  It may even seem to go back sometime.

    You must run chkdsk/r again until it finds no error to correct.

    Remove the CD, and then type "exit" to exit the RC and restart the computer.

    You have not to set the BIOS to boot the disk HARD since the CD won't be.
