Pavilion 6b50ei: try to factory reset but the recovery partition/drives created are defective

I have a pavilion dv7-6b50ei notebook pc purchased 2012. He always gives a command prompt pop up who don't stay long enough to read. I felt too there is a virus on it that my anti-virus did not solve so I tried the factory reset, but when I restart and press F11 it gives an error (something like a boot... is missing). so I tried my recovery disks. CD 1 of 4 ran fine but disk 2 continues to stop with an error. Now, the laptop will not charge because I think that the operating system was formatted during the recovery and do not know what to do. I feel disc 2 is bad too because he also gave an error trying to copy on a USB key. I also tried an external dvd and run the hp hard disk test; the hard drive passed the test. If I can get a new set of recovery discs, it would solve my problem. In addition, I look forward to ideas. Help, please.

Hello

There are two options available.

1. you can order a set of replacement recovery disks using the link below - it will reinstall the operating system, all the drivers, and almost all of the original software (the exception being often tests of MS Office).  They will also recreate all of the original scores, including the recovery Partition.

Order HP recovery disks.

2 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 still read all the key character product activation 25 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.

    Sometimes just set the boot priority in the bios menu does not work as it should.

    Try the following.

    Insert your 1st recovery disk, and then click stop the laptop.

    Now on TAP the ESC key as soon as you start the launch of the laptop Boot Menu.

    Select boot options ( f9 ), use the arrow keys to select the CD/DVD drive and press ENTER.  You can also get a prompt to "Press any key to" continuous - it if requested.

  • 2000-2d27cl HP: recovery file exist but the recovery partition has been changed

    recovery partition has been extended and after several months I had some problems, so I decided to reset my laptop to factory settings but Recovery Manager computer cannot recognize the recovery partition. Recovery partition has been extended and I use this partition as a backup partition for my photos, programs and music. The reason why I want to reset to factory settings is because my laptop in early labour right and after ten minutes start to work very slowly, I can't do anything!

    Help, please!

    Thank you for your answer, but I was already able to reset my laptop to factory settings. My recovery partition has been extended, but the drive letter is different. When I realized this error, I change the drive letter. Recovery Manager started smoothly with F11 taster during startup. So, I think that everyone can do the same thing, you can change the size of your recovery partition and you can use it as backup partition, but do not try to move or copy your restore file to any location.

    I had problems with the computer a few weeks ago and had to do a disk/partition Acronis backup restore. Drive C: / (and all my other readers) are working as they should but drive E:/where is the partition installed normal recovery does not restore properly. I recently had another problem and tried to do a restore using the partition HP recovery and got the error messages it is not found?

    HP web site does not list my computer and I think I need to order a set of recovery from my web research disc, but I'm going in circles on the HP web site trying to find out where to order or send an email to technical support. Looks like HP wants just to sell their hardware and then completely dump you after disregarding needs later? I am very frustrated with HP because it seems that if you have not purchased the equipment in the last 90 days you're in their "rearview mirror" when it comes to help?

    I still have to call their phone support since I had 'experience' with their offshore support in the past and would really like to avoid new frustrating experience with the entire HP support system.  Why can't I just ask a question and get a resolution - is it too ask?  Apparently Yes...

    Can anyone help me to get what I need to replace the recovery on my desktop computer partition and get it all working properly again? Thank you in advance for any help that will help solve this problem. Robert

    Well, since the computer came with Vista, then the recovery partition will be of no other value to reinstall Vista, which I assume is not what is wanted.  If the Windows 7 install disk is always available, then reinstall Windows 7 on this disc and new departure.  Was the original Vista 32 bit and the new Windows 7 64-bit, so is not "upgrade was/is possible, but a new install anyway."  As the other 64-bit programs have been added after the upgrade to Windows 7, installers will need to be rerun to get install them after you have reinstalled Windows 64-bit.  Otherwise, the Acronis image can be used.  Unless HP has published this same model computer with Windows 7 64-bit, there is no HP support and hense no recovery partition. Sorry

  • Satellite L500-19 - remove the recovery partition and create new

    Hello!

    I bought a new Toshiba Satellite L500-19th with Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit). So far, everything is brilliant work.
    I have already created the recovery DVDs.
    As a result, could now delete the partition with the recovery program? I want to use the full space of my hard disk and create partitions as I want.
    But I don't know how I should do this?
    Could you please help me?

    Oxford

    If you are sure that the created recovery DVD is ok at 100%, you can delete all data on the second partition.
    Open Windows Explorer on the left side where is the second partition, click with the right button of the mouse and choose the FORMAT option.
    Choose the quick format option and click START.

    After a minute or two, all data will be gone.

    Please note: in the future when you want to use recovery DVD for installing Win7 the whole HARD disk is deleted and you will lose all your data.
    Using recovery DVD you can not format the C partition only.

  • Pavilion dv6t-2000 - cannot recover from the recovery partition

    Hey there. I'm trying to restore my laptop with Win 7 settings, but I can't seem to restore from my recovery partition. I tried the F8, F11 key and on the ways to office with no luck. In some of them, recovery option is grayed out, but using the recovery on the Desktop Manager, I have recovery option, but he says to insert disk 1 before continuing. I have no disc and I already have a previous restoration set the last time I got my laptop (about 2 years ago).

    When I click on my computer I see the c drive and d drive - what is labeled a recovery partition. I did a check of the recovery partition and there are no errors. It seems to work fine, except that my laptop is not to be used to recover. I know it's a major road, so I've never tested with it.

    Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated

    It is more likely that some of the files were corrupted on the recovery partition. At this point, since you have no recovery disc, I would phone HP to order recovery media.

  • Try to restore from the recovery partition

    I'm trying to restore my laptop to its original state by using the restore partition.  I formatted the C drive, but the recovery partition was left in place.  Is there a way to do this?  I, unfortunately, do not appear to have the recovery CD I did a disk with Acronis image that seems to be a joke as it will not restore anything.  Would appreciate any advice you can give me at this point.

    My laptop was a Vista Home, if that helps.

When you have finished this operation it was not an option to remove the recovery partition (drive D on my computer. I tried to reopen the HP Recovery Manager and try to remove it like that, but to remove it is greyed out. I also tried to delete it using the 8.1 windows Disk Manager, but there is no way to do there either. If I right click on the recovery Partition, I get only an option 'help '. How can I get rid of this partition and recover lost space using it now on my hard drive. Windows and HP did not want to provide more records with their computers, but they do not have a problem of screwing of MY hard drive that I bought and paid for. I should start to charge rent for the space.

    I just used the software and created another partition as drive D using all unallocated space. I can delete probably once again, or maybe I'll just use it as a storage device for my files instead of recovering files sofetware... Thanks for the help

  • Pavilion G6 Caps lock flashes constantly but the laptop work.

    Hello!

    I've owned my HP Pavilion g6-2292sa Notebook PC (running Windows 8) for about 4 months now and tonight, so I was watching just the net that I noticed that my Caps Lock led flashing continuously, a flash every second. My laptop works fine, and I rebooted to try to stop the flashing, but with no luck. I checked Flash and positions that average hot flashes but mine does not fit in all of this. It is starting, it is not beep just the caps lock flashes constantly. I checked my other lights and see no other spazzing out like that. I'm rather worried because I had to have a new motherboard and HARD drive in a month of purchase. I googled not materialized. Can someone help me please?

    Definitley weird!

    Can you check the UEFI environment in F2? Let's see if it happens there inside and outside to win 8.

    If it happens again, we can try a hard reset - remove the battery and AC and hold the market for 30 seconds, then plug back in. We can also try a BIOS flash - checks whether there is a newer version or re flash.

    If the problem does not occur in BIOS - then you can try a Virus scan / update or restore possible system
