Pavilion g7: Hp recovery media

I'm trying to create a recovery on my g7 pavilion hp media initially windows 8 upgraded to windows 10. I'm trying to use a new disc flash 32 gig it starts formatting the usb drive and never ends rest at 0% of all ideas


Sorry, but this is not going to work.

If you try to create a recovery Win8 media, it won't work because the upgrade of Win10 corrupt recovery HP information: HP Recovery Manager blocked after Windows 10 Upgrade - HP Support Forum's - 5170752

If you try to create a recovery Win10 media, it won't work because she needs a recovery of Win10 with a Tablet OEM image partition put their HP and your PC does not have because it came with 8 Win.

At this point, your best bet is to use a third-party product known as Macrium Reflect.

Macrium reflect (MR) provides a FREE version that can be used to image and restore partitions or drives together:

What I recommend is the following:
(1) download and install Macrium reflect (MR)
(2) run M. and choose the option: "Create an image of the partition (s) required to backup and restore Windows" to write a full backup to an external drive or USB key
(3) use the option to create a CD or a USB startup key

My experience is that SIR, when you use the option of Compression high, typically allows to compress the image file recorded at about 50% of the space USED in the OS partition.  This means that if you have a 40GB and 80GB OS partition is used, MR must only about 20 GB to store the image file.

I use all the time and it usually takes less than 10 minutes to make the backup of the image and at the same time or less do a restore.

In addition, MR has the ability to add a recovery Boot Menu entry.  This then allows you to boot into Windows re, and then you can use it to do a restore - when you cannot start Windows!

NOW, you have the means to restore a full system that works for the external hard drive or USB key in a few minutes.

Good luck

  • Pavilion 23-b244 AiO: the system recovery media does not support this computer

    Hey all,.

    I had a power outage (1 TB) HD material on me about a week ago and replaced by a (500 GB) SSD, not purchased from HP.  I then ordered the recovery disc from HP for this particular serial number.  Whenever I boot on the recovery discs, I get "this computer does not support the system recovery media. You are not able to restore the system with the media. "The Minsize argument in the instructions to build on the DVD file provides a minimum of 140 GB, so I don't think I have a new smaller drive system is the question.

    Last month I have updated the firmware to v80.08, and in the bios "product name", 'SKU number', 'serial number of the chassis' fields are all empty.  In "System ID", everythign is empty except UUID and family name.

    I think that's why I'm not able to boot to recovery discs?

    Any help would be appreciated, I have use this computer for quickbooks and have bee unable to do accounting for a week and a half.

    Figured it out! On my Pavilion, you press Ctrl + A in the bios then click on 'System IDs'. Then I was able to type in the ID to build my recovery and support the byte to feature on the sticker under my machine. F10 to save then the recovery media recognized the computer properly and booted up!

  • Pavilion HPE h8-1234: computer without recovery media recovery

    My hard drive failed and I not create recovery discs. I searched HP's site and found my product but none of the recovery disks were available for Windows 7. They had a recovery media available for my product for Windows 8, but when I tried to browse the site further, I got a 'blank page' (and I'm not even sure I'd be able to use Windows 8, since it was not what was originally installed)

    At this point, I'm just trying to understand what are my options for getting an operating system that runs on a new hard drive, so my computer is usable. I'd rather find a way to access the software I had initially at lowest cost possible but if not, what are my other options?



    Let me welcome you on the HP forums!

    Sorry, but HP stock no long recovery for older PC Win7 media.

    Given that HP no longer provides a recovery media for your model, a few other sites, you should check are: and

  • Pavilion dv6: create recovery disk media fails

    The disk is failing - takes forever to start and the PC hangs when I try to access it using Explorer. I have another drive, removed the PC drive and mounted in a USB SATA disk drive.

    I can see the recovery partition, there look OK, contains a lot of files, among them a 22Gig. A file 'bootmgr' in the root and a startup directory, especially of the WIM file.

    Can I use this partition to create a bootable USB drive that can recover my OS on this new hard drive?

    I know that I can buy a recovery kit, but if I use it, I'll save some money and the day 6-10 wait as the press kit...

    Waiting with hope in my eyes

    Use this guide to learn how to create a recovery media:

    It only works with the hard drive in the PC.

    Here's a way you can reinstall W7 by using the product key of W7 25 characters on the bottom of your PC case.

    Make your own plain W7 x 64 installation media.

    Here is the link to the download site of Microsoft for the W7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1 ISO file. ISO Windows 7 Home Premium x 64 English

    Make sure you get all the 3. XX GB of the file to download.  Sometimes it reports 'Download complete', but you do not have the entire file.

    Burn the file on a DVD using the option of the program of your burner burn DVD file ISO then the DVD is bootable.

    Or you can use this tool to transfer the ISO to a flash USB 4 GB or DVD drive.  The tool also performs the bootable media. b-dvd-download-tool

    Then install the drivers and software available that you need your PC support and driver page.

  • Pavilion M6-1045dx: problem of recovery media

    I'm working on a cover of my laptop cousins.  The hard drive is dead and I had to order the recovery from HP media.  I just received the other day and started the recovery with a new hard drive.

    Everything was fine until I got the second dvd.  Then he stops at 71% and tells me it's a read error and asks me to click OK to try again.  I'm doing and the message comes back on the same file (wish I had the name of file, but I turn off the laptop).

    I retried a couple of times.  Same message.  I returned the drive 1 recovery.  Everything was fine until the second dvd again and stopped 71% on the same file.

    I think that the media, that I received from HP has a problem.

    How to send me the second dvd yet?

    Thank you.

    I ask that your question is raised. A person of HP will soon contact you. Please be patient as it is a holiday season in the United States.

    Ask to have the set of recovery disks replaced with HP usb recovery media. Usb support is much more reliable and more sustainable.

  • Cannot create recovery media after installing the SSD on Pavilion TS 11-e100


    I just replaced the SSD HARD drive and tried to make a USB support of recovery through 8.1 recovery utility. The process takes strangely little time, but finishes normally have reported that the media are created. The size of all the files on the flash is about 200 MB. When I made the same support with disk size was 12 GB. I tried to start with than flash and it failed with a message on a damaged or similar medium. I always thought that windows does not take into account the physical structure of the disc and can not understand what is happening and what to do.


    I use HP Recovery manager to create a recovery media for my machine ready and my wife. I use another software to clone HARD disks for other machines after any big change for example after moving from Windows 8 to 8.1, I create a clone which means I can't do it again, simply restore it back. Use a software called O & O DiskImage clone but the following free software can do the job:

    Kind regards.

    PS I tested once the 3rd software, it's ok

  • P7-1205: amount of necessary recovery media?

    Media Recovery prompts the user to choose either DVD (s) or Flash Drive as a system recovery media, but gives no indication of how much will be needed. A single disc? Five disks? A GB flash drive. 32 GB flash drive? Would be nice to have an idea of how the media would be required to produce a recovery media before the start of the process that the process can be done only once (depending on the Wizard).

    Does anyone have any idea how much needed medium (DVD or Flash) may be needed to produce the recovery media necessary for this system?

    Thank you.

  • HP Recovery Manager & Recovery Media creation unavailable in SEARCH CHARM!

    I have HP Pavilion n209TX-15 Notebook PC with Windows 8.1 update 1.
    My system is up to date with all the upgrades of HP & Windows updates. I already have recovery in DVD image recently after the purchase.
    But now, I have noted that HP Recovery Manager or create recovery media software applications could be seen on the search in the charm of research even with the drop-down list "everywhere".
    I noticed this when I had to reinstall after uninstalling HP Support Assistant yesterday.
    No idea where it went all of a sudden. Help, please. Thanks in advance.

    Hi visruth,

    Sorry for the delay in replying, enjoyed the weekend. I hope you had a good too.

    I have read your answers and from the other thread that you linked to. I also checked on a lab for Windows 8.1 here to see what it was you were looking for you. I understand that now.

    To clarify for you, you don't have a virus. What is happening is all just link to when you need to remove and reinstall the HP Support Assistant software. The HP Recovery Manager tool, belongs to who. What seems to be produced is the removal/relocation has cause the link you used to find during a search to be broken. The fact that it works when access you it via the Help Assistant, supports that theory.

    What I suggested to you in my first post should / could fix that. That he essentially fixes files. I will only include the document again like a Microsoft one for you. In order to clarify you hesitate to do the system update. You won't lose any of your files up-to-date ect. and that your computer came with Windows 8.1 not restore it. This only happens if you had improved (I had it said). So you have no problem with the update running.

    Here are the two documents:
    How to refresh, reset or restore your PC
    Refresh your PC to solve problems (Windows 8)

    I also want to let you know that by removing all the Cyberlink software, you have lost your webcam in laptop. However, when you perform the update, this should be fixed as well.  Please try this and let me know how make you out with her.

    Thanks for your replies.

  • Old recovery media

    Hello my fellow forum members! : as stated previously, I have a Pavilion 7965 2001 model

    There are a few months that the PC has been upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate edition, a new CPU & Firewire ports

    Since the upgrade, I still have the support of Windows XP Recovery with the extra added value edition which included the backup application that was not part of XP Home Edition, in addition, I have all the modules necessary service (XP SP 3) as well.

    I would like to know the addresses of HP that I can send it to because I do what I do at my public library

    because I'm too financially challenged to be here through my home

    during the 8 years that I've been here, I've noticed that people periodically ask for recovery media to bring their machines patients back to normal I think would not deprive chipheads colleagues to have their computers to bring a few years of useful life.

    I don't know that anyone would appreciate that at the highest level once I have remove this.

    Thanks for having me be part of this
