l hp dv6-6179-er: recovery on a new hard drive

Hello world!

I had the problem with my laptop, it is impossible to re - install windows from the recovery DVD, because the hard drive is broken. Is that going to be a problem to set the new hard drive and install the operating system? Is that there should be some error messages or something?

The recovery disks work on a new hard drive, if they do not post back with the error message.

  • How to copy the recovery on the new HARD drive partition, HARD drive failed?


    I have a Compaq Mini netbook with Windows 7 Starter.

    The HARD drive has failed and it is not repairable. However, it seems that the recovery partition is OK.

    I want to buy a new HARD drive, install the driver on the netbook, and then use the tools/recovery partition to install windows 7 on a new PC.

    So, the question is simple: how to copy the recovery for the new HARD drive partition?

    Hello s91066.

    If your hard drive of your laptop doesn't have? If this is the case, what do you mean by the "recovery partition is ok? I doubt that this laptop has two hard disks, so if you are able to see this partition of your hard drive may still work.

    You will need a set of recovery disks to restore the partitions on the new drive. If you can start Windows, which you can probably not with a dead hard drive, you can follow these steps if you can get into Windows.

    If you are unable to boot into Windows, you need a set of disks. You can order it directly from HP. The number of the United States / Canada is 1-800-474-6836. If you are in another domain, you must visit HP's Support around the world to find contact information for your region.

    I hope that is useful; have a great weekend!

  • Equium A100 - will be the responsibility of recovery on a new HARD drive disk


    Don t know if anyone can help, I am just out of warranty by a month and I think that my hard drive has failed, or I had a virus that has hit loads of files and the PC is always eager to run the disc scan and still get errors on commissioning, sometimes start even goes just right to start mode then crash again and again the same thing.

    I have the recovery disk, but this is not sort on the question, so if I get a new hard drive the recovery disc will actually load on a new HARD drive? Why don t Toshiba just give us the full operating system to start with?

    Someone has answers or similar questions that could help please let me know.


    Of course, you can use a recovery with new HARD drive media. No problem at all! Swap the HARD drive and install the operating system using recovery DVDs. All that s!

    Hirroshi wrote: what determines if the new hard drive will be compatible with the recovery disk?  Could I connect the new hard drive in another Bay and try to use the recovery disk, before removing my old hard drive?

    Hello Hirroshi, it seems that drives hard very little HP only work in an HP computer, or so I said. I think it has to do with some code that HP puts in the Master Boot Record, but that's just a guess. I read on the Forum that this is the case.

    I suggest that you delete the partition on the replacement hard drive, and then create a new partition and format the hard drive. You should be able to use the recovery disk, if they are not damaged and that you have a valid burn.

    You can try to install the replacement hard drive in the system you propose, and it can work very well. It's certainly worth a try.

    Here is a link that shows how to perform a recovery facility when a hard drive is replaced.

  • Satellite L670D - issue of recovery on the new HARD drive

    Hi all.

    I actually sent this support Toshiba has a few days ago, but still have received no response and thought I would try this forum.

    That's the problem; the hard drive of my laptop is a failure, I had warnings to create a backup and replace the drive hard as soon as possible. I have done this and have mounted with success the computer with a new brand Hitachi 500 GB hard drive, with no problems.

    Then, I entered the program installation and makes the dvd the first boot drive. The first disc of recovery in the drive and it starts perfectly and started the process. I then went through the recovery procedure with the DVD 3 x on my computer, it seemed to work flawlessly, and after inserting all 3 disks in the order as requested, I was instructed to remove the final support.

    I have reset the boot hard drive and windows started normally until I got to this point. "the installation program starts services. Then comes a pop-up window saying; "windows could not complete the installation, to install windows on installation, this restart of the computer.

    Of course I tried to start in a few other ways to the f8 advanced boot options, but he always does this same thing.

    I can't imagine what the problem is that everything seems to go well until this?

    Hope you can help me solve this problem.
    Thank you

    Only thing I would say is that you need to install recovery image again. Please try it out and post comments.
    It will be interesting to know if the same thing will happen again.

  • Equium A200-1V0 - recovery on the new HARD drive problem


    Hoping someone can help, I just mounted a new Toshiba 1 TB hard drive for my Equium A200-1V0, used the Vista came with the computer recovery disk, everything seems to be installed ok, but when you try to start, I get a message saying that Windows Vista is unable to run on this hardware. Any suggestion is appreciated.

    Thank you

    There must be a compatibility problem. Usually the hard drives up to 500 GB are not problematic for the old machines.
    If possible, try to install the version of the OS. When you can get Win7 32 bit would be great. Win7 32-bit is supported for your machine and in my view, it will work perfectly.

  • OneKey Recovery on the new hard drive

    I own a lenovo ideapad Z570 and upgrade to a larger HARD drive (of 600 GB to 1 TB).

    So my question is: How do OEM partitions and recovery, just after installing windows7 on a new (blank) HARD drive in order to facilitate the "OneKey Recovery."

    You want to have an oem installation (with preinstalled applications or you are flexible with a clean install of windows?

  • recovery, then on new hard drive

    I put a new disc in and everything went well until I tried to use the recovery disc.  I get the message that this cd contains the software originally installed on a hp pavilion pc. If you receive this message on a hp pavilion call hp support.  Now, I don't know what to do, it is an old computer and security disappeared. The computer is a hp pavilion a800n. Can anyone help?

    Did a quick check and the part number for the recovery software is for the a800n 5069-8794. You can find it via a number of retailers using the part number in a search engine.  This software must be recognized by the system hardware and provide a recovery solution. I hope that the software you were using was the same number of Assembly.  If this is not the case you can try to acquire the software above and it should work with your system. Good luck!

  • Satellite P750 PSAY1A: how to create the recovery Toshiba on the new HARD drive partition


    I have an old Toshiba Satellite P750 (PSAY1A-01Y022). I just upgraded my memory from 4 GB to 8 GB and am preparing to take my 500 GB HARD drive 1 TB. I had to order the disk online and wait to happen.

    I always try to understand how to create the arrival of my new HARD drive Toshiba Recovery Partition. I do the same thing for an old book, I handled based on something similar to it's original factory State.

    I have reflected on the recovery partition, but does not know how it was created. It is not NTFS. Does anyone have experience in the creation of a Toshiba Recovery on a new HARD drive Partition?

    And the help is very appreciated.

    Thanks and regards,

    Recovery partition can be created when you use the original Toshiba Recovery disk and install recovery image. Before the partitions to boot OS install will be automatically created, recovery image copied on a recovery and then partition as last step recovery image installation starts.

    A sort of migration of files from one to the other HARD disk is not solution.

    Only for laptop with factory will work and the usable recovery partition.

  • Portege R500-11Z: recovery disk to help prepare a new HARD drive

    I bought a new hard drive (SSD) for my R500-11Z and I put in an envelope with the USB cable before installation - I want to be able to format the drive and create a new copy of Windows XP before you get out of my existing hard drive.

    I'm looking for ways to use the recovery disk and it SEEMS that it should be possible... EXCEPT...

    I discovered that on the recovery disk there is an executable called recoUNPACK in the Tools folder, which should, in theory, restore the contents of the disc to the hard drive. However, because the new hard drive is plugged into my existing XP set up, he gets a folder called System Volume Information written in it. The presence of this file causes the recoUNPACK to fail. He gets, at 59%, every time, and then survey the error - System Volume Information already exists.

    Any person proposing the deletion of the folder should consider their knowledge of the XP - there is no way to do this, ask Mr. Google if you don't believe me. I also tried this with full of this folder write permissions so that, in theory, could replace recoUNPACK...

    I would be very grateful if someone knows a way of "forcing" crush the System Volume information folder or another way to 'restore' the recovery of my new hard drive disk (other that disassemble the laptop and substitute physically the disc!).

    I have reviewed various options for establishing a USB bootable drive, but as I will adapt it in my laptop I don't want running all versions of XP - so using the recovery disc supplied with my odd R500. All bootable USB I can find only programs, fat32 format, and I would stay in NTFS...

    And the reason why I want to do it this way, it is that I want to continue to use my existing hard drive until the news is ready - its supposed to be an effective way to work... but so far the time wasted, trying to restore the disks could have been better spent undoing the screws on the rear of the machine!

    Thanks in advance

    > However, because the new hard drive is plugged into my existing XP set up, he gets a folder called System Volume Information written in it. The presence of this file causes the recoUNPACK to fail. He gets, at 59%, every time and then lift the error - System Volume Information already exists

    Hmm the right path and the letter of the partition or volume entitled did you use?

    As far as I know that the command should show something like this:

    + recounpack.exe d:\imagename.tpa z: f +.

    (z: is the letter of your external USB drive and may be different in your case)

  • Recovery is possible on the new hard drive?


    I think about buying a new hard drive to improve the performance of my laptop Satellite.
    I was wondering if it would be possible to restore my system using the recovery on the new hard drive disks.

    Thank you!

    As far as I know you can do it. What you need is to buy hard drive compatible and functional.

    By curiosity, but what model of laptop do you have and what hard drive you want to buy?

  • DV6 - 6167cl: need to win 7 recovery disc for a new hard drive

    I do not know what operating system Windows 7, my laptop had, but I need to put Windows 7 on my laptop HP dv6 - 6167cl recovery disks.

    My original question was that my laptop could not restore or anything on its own.  After calling HP support and carry out a guided diagnostic test, it was determined that my hard drive was bad.  I bought a new hard drive and replaced it, but need to get Windows 7 return on that.

    Thank you!


    Unfortunately, there is no option to download the recovery media - discs, or a usb flash drive must be ordered from HP by following the link in my previous post.

    For the version, the possibility of order recovery media is only listed under Windows 7 64 bit and that's what I would have expected your laptop to ship with - it is your machine comes with 6 GB of Ram and would require a 64-bit OS to be able to access what anyone more than 4 GB

    Another option that you might consider is to create your own Windows 7 installation disc.

    Before you try the following, make sure that you can always read the entire key 25 character product activation on your label Windows COA (5 blocks of 5 alphanumeric games).

    An example of a COA label can be seen here.

    You can create a Windows 7 installation disc yourself using another PC - just download the Disk Image correct ( this must be the same version that originally came with your laptop - it is listed as Windows 7 Home Premium 64 - bit ) from the link below and use an app like ImgBurn ( Note: you can deselect additional software during installation of ImgBurn offerings) to burn the ISO correctly on a blank DVD - a guide on the use of ImgBurn to write that an ISO on a disc is here.  The source of the Windows Image is Digital River.

    Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit SP1.

    Use the disk to perform the installation, enter the activation key of Windows on the label of the COA at the request and once the installation is complete, use ' 'phone Method' described in detail in the link below to activate the operating system -this made method supported by Microsoft and is popular with people who want to just have a new installation of Windows 7 without additional software load normally comes with OEM installations.


    You may need, additional drivers and software are here.

    Kind regards
