HP Recovery Manager Loop

Q: HP Recovery Manager Loop

HP laptop would boot to "blue screen" - could not read error quick enough - finally decided to restore to original setup through HP Recover Manager. Made a backup of files and proceeded with reinstall. Everything looked fine - HP software installing, desktop was there, installed video card driver... Installed the video driver, laptop shut down and now stuck in a loop with Recovery Manager. Keeps asking if I want to recreate a factory image. Already done that...stuck in a loop. Help!

Preferred Solution: HP Recovery Manager Loop

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am on Windows 10, and for the past couple months I have had booting/BSOD errors that usually give me "bad_system_config_info" and occasionally, "0xc000021a ". Sometimes, I have been able to boot in by accessing the UEFI settings, other times it seems like it just randomly decides to let me log in to my computer normally. When I am able to login, I check for viruses and I haven't found any, as well as run commands like "sfc/scannow", "chkdsk", or "bootsect".  I am trying to recreate recovery media via the HP Recovery Manager, but each time I insert the empty flashdrive, the Recovery Manager suddenly crashes. Please, any response to these combined issues would be greatly appreciated, I haven't been able to use this laptop regularly for months now.

If I abandon my efforts to install the latest Windows 10 update, would it be a feasible and a good choice for me to command HP Recovery Manager to make the "Minimized Image Recovery" to the factory condition of OS (Windows 7 Home Edition) with drivers and select software?  I have used HP Recovery Mgr to backup my files on an external hard drive.  Next question: How do I restore those files to my computer?  Should the restoration be done in Windows 7 or after I install Windows 10 on my computer?

I found away past it. Just close the window with the "X". Don't hit retry or it will just keep starting over. The box will appear a few more times during the process, but just keep hitting X and it should go through. Worked for me! I'm not sure if there are features or files missing because of the errors, but the system seems to work fine so far.

Recovery Manager has hiccups sometimes...
Try re-booting and entering at boot.

If that fails you can order the Recovery Media from HP for a reasonable price.

A:Don't have Recovery partition and Recovery Manager to Reset ...

Hi there @HPian_B,  Before I provide troubleshooting documentation, I would like to take a minute to welcome you to the HP Support Community, where you can ask questions, find solutions and get help from the community! I read that you would like to reset your HP Pavilion g6-2310ex Notebook PC to factory settings.  Please read the document called Backing Up Your Files. This will provide you with ways to back up the files you have on your Notebook. Here is a document for you to read called Creating Recovery Discs or Saving a Recovery Image to a USB Flash Drive. I pulled some information from the document for you. The first thing I would like to make you aware of is that only DVD-R, DVD-R DL, DVD+R, or DVD+R DL discs are compatible with the Recovery Media Creation program. The following disc types are not compatible with the Recovery Media Creation program:CDsDVD-RWDVD+RWDVD-RW DLDVD+RW DLYou will then also see that in the document it says: The Recovery Media Creation software program allows  only one complete set of discs to be created.The Recovery Media Creation software program  requires an uncorrupted recovery partition (Recovery Image (D) to create a set of discs. Uncorrupted means the recovery partition has  not been modified or removed.The creation process takes about 30 minutes per DVD. The entire recovery set does not need to be created in one session.The Recovery Media Creation software can be aborted at any time, except during the writing (burning) process, by clicking  Cancel. The next time the Recovery Media Creation software program is run, it automatically starts where it last stopped.You can use the recovery discs you create on your computer on another computer only if the second computer is the same model as the one that created the recovery discs.Here is a document called Performing an HP system recovery (Windows 7) and another called Recover Windows 7 Operating System Using Microsoft Windows Backup and Restore. - This is used to Recover, Restore, or do a Clean Install of Windows 7.  Please make sure that you read these documents very carefully before you decided to reset to factory settings.  Thanks for being a part of the HP community. Please let me know if this helps resolve the issue by marking this post as "Accept as Solution". If you require further assistance let me know and I will gladly do all I can to help. Please also re-post with the exact error message you received. If you wish to say "thanks" for my effort to help, click the "thumbs up" to give me a Kudos. Thanks!Have a great day

So I custom built my computer for gaming. I used Windows7 Pro as an OS. It worked great for 2 weeks but when I was playing Minecraft it froze and I had to reset my computer and now I'm stuck on the Repair Loop. I've tried a lot of things. I really don't wish to reinstall Windows. Helppp! I've also tried chkdsk/r and /f. R worked the first time but when I rebooted again it returned to the loop.

What other things have you tried as you stated? I would recommend test your HDD by using diagnostics tools. From another pc if possible.

With the newly burned cd boot with the cd go to HDD>Diagnostics>The make and model of your hard drive, Seagate, Maxtor, Drive Fitness which is Hitachi, Or Western Digital. Perform a short and long test. Could also be called "Standard" and "Extended" test or also "Comprehensive" test. Seagate HDD diagnostics tools will work on most Hard drives.

If you can not find the right test for your hard drive your OEM computer may have it's own hard drive diagnostics testing tool. Refer to your OEM computer documentation to find out how to access these test. Also try going to the manufacture of your machine to find documentation about it. Also consider going to the manufacture of your hard drive to look to see if they have hard drive diagnostics test. The ideal test or method would include an ISO that could be burned via an image to a cd which would be made bootable.

Hello!So ive had an hp 15-g029wm (generic af, I know) for over three years now, and I'm finally getting hit with an issue. I can turn the device on, but after doing so, it says "Preparing Automatic Repair" and then after a five minute long black screen "Diagnosing your PC" and then "Repairing disk errors. This might take over an hour to complete." And then it kind of chills there forever. Also, I originally had windows 8 when I bought it, and then I was given a free upgrade to Windows 10. I don't know how to enter the bios menu or whatever, and I feel like I've mashed every button to get some sort of reaction out of this beast.Let me know your thoughts

My laptop crashed but I was bale to recover my data from the drive using an external cable to the drive on my desktop PC.  I can see the recovery partition, can I make a recover USB from the drive without it being in my laptop?

A:Re: Don't have Recovery partition and Recovery Manager to Re...

Hi there,  Do you not have Recovery discs?How did you previously load Windows 7 on your Notebook? The media creation software allows only  one system image to be created. If you created a set of recovery discs, you can not create a system image on a USB drive. The media creation software requires an uncorrupted recovery partition (FACTORY_IMAGE D. Uncorrupted means that the recovery partition has  not been modified or removed. That being said, at this point, I cannot guarantee that the image will work on your USB.

I am using SP3 to get to recovery console as i have read on numerous threads about Log on/ Log off problems. My problem however is that when i enter recovery console the prompt asks 1. H:\minint or 2. C:\windows

When i come to "COPY userini.exe wsaupdater.exe" the result is "file not found" on C:\windows

on H:\minint the function works - either way when i EXIT and restart i am still unable to log in without the system logging out again immediately.

I'm not very computer savvy, so any help is great but it'd be better in laymen terms.

A:Help PLEASE: Log on/Log off loop - recovery console issues

I think that is userinit.exe (with a 't')

Have you tried Expand c:\windows\system32\dllcache\userinit.exe c:\windows\system32\


edit: if that is what you're trying to do

Are you trying to remove wsaupdater.exe ?

A:Reboot loop / Need Recovery Console

If your priority is saving data, you might try booting with a Linux Live CDto see if you can still read the drive. If so, you can copy what you want, onto a flash drive and work on fixing the drive afterwards.A Linux disk should enable you to boot, without interference from Windows.It's about a 700MB download of the ISO, which you need to burn to a CD.(Ubuntu is a popular distribution and also Linux Mint).Read all the info first, if you're dubious. http://www.linuxmint.com/download.phpor Google Ubuntu, if that's more familiar to you.You're right, about this site - it's unlikely that anyone would ever recommend a registry cleaner.

Tried an external drive, but after it downloaded the update and trying to install i got 41% in and bombed out.I took it home and after doing a backup of her files, i attempted to do a recovery to take it back to factory level again.Here is where the problem started, after rebooting it started to reset to factory, was stuck on 1% for 1 hour, then after another hour was on 5%, then it bombed afterwards. Now it wont boot and although options are available such as bios or recovery, i dont have a recovery USB.Can you help please?Many thanks

My computer froze earlier today and I thought little of it, so I rebooted my computer and it went to Error Recovery. Unfortunately after choosing to Start Windows Normally it takes a couple minutes and just reboots itself and goes back to Error Recovery.

I've tried Safe Mode, I tried Last Known Good Configuration, and I haven't had any luck. The only OS disc I have is the one Gateway packaged with the computer years ago and it doesn't seem to work at all.

I am fairly computer inept and I have nothing left. Searching the internet hasn't helped me at all and I'm starting to get a bit scared. I need help asap.

Any help anyone can provide would be much appreciated.

When turning the Ipod Nano on, I get the message "use itunes to restore". However, when I use itunes to restore, I get stuck in the recovery loop. All posts I've read about on various sites say to change the drive.

I right click my computer / manage / disk manager
When there, the ipod is not readable. When I browse via explorer, the drive claims to not be formatted. Seems this problem is fixed for others this way, but not me.

The drive is working...I've tested it with my camera and pocket (thumb?) disk.
I've also uninstalled/reinstalled the itunes software.

I'm reluctant to try to sync our other nano, for fear of the same thing happening.
Any other ideas, short of replacement?

Thanks so much

Update Fixed it Recovery loop a System Stuck in My suspicions were correct the computer was having issues with labeling the drives correctly and disconnecting the second one did indeed force the computer to label the main one correctly thus allowing the recovery tool to start up correctly and then after a restart allowing the OS to boot normally I dunno how just going into the System Recovery tool caused this but it did and I fixed it no thanks to you guys Although Richard S did supply me with potentially life-saving tool and I'm still going to burn it to a DVD for any time someone else or I need it in the future Props to you Richard Following is the original post and an update left for anyone who may have the same problem as me in the futureRunning a Compaq Presario SR P with Vista Home Basic Recently installed a new video card but I doubt that its the problem as it was running fine for about a week before this Ok so first a little backstory to this problem I'm watching over a friend's house for a few days and decided to bring my desktop along and hook Stuck in a System Recovery loop it up to her TV currently posting from her laptop btw When I hooked the tower up to her TV it would go through the BIOS then the TV would flick to quot Incompatible Format quot which meant the resolution was incompatible with the TV Not having a monitor or anything else to hook the tower into to switch the resolution I was looking around in the BIOS settings and such for a way to switch the resolution before boot which I know how to now a little late though Well I thought the system recovery tool might have something in it if someone's monitor couldn't display anything and they knew the monitor was working they might go to System Recovery right Well I could find nothing there either so I restarted the computer Now Vista will only boot into Recovery mode It refuses to boot normally I've tried Boot Windows Normally Last Known Good Config just about everything And I can't use system restore because all of my restore points are stored on the C partition of my main drive whereas the recovery system is stored on a different one I am steadily finding this type of setup ridiculously idiotic and I have no idea as to why manufacturers do it A clean install is extreme last ditch effort I'd almost rather cut off any of my fingers rather than wipe my drive So is there any way to get past this problem I only know a little concerning how OS's boot up but my guess as to the problem is that in initially opening up the recovery tool I changed the file that holds all of the boot info on the main drive so now instead of the BIOS being told to boot off of the C drive its booting off of the X drive the partition that holds the recovery tool Again though thats just my guess and I have no idea how one would fix that Update Some interesting developments Because the Recovery tool that is on my HDD partition was doing nothing I decided to download the Vista Recovery Tool and burn it to a disc which yes is legal in the hopes that running it off a CD would allow the tool to see more than the empty partition that the other one saw Well it did see more and what it saw was interesting I have hard drives in my computer one dedicated to programs and the OS and the other dedicated to media Somehow through the processes that I went through in my first post the media drive was labeled drive C originally E my main partition of the main drive was labeled drive E originally C the quot Recovery quot partition was unchanged with the label D and a new drive a new partition a virtual drive was discovered with the name of quot Boot quot and the label of X So all this time I haven't been booting to the recovery partition as I thought I was I was booting to this new drive or partition I found these through the System Restore Point system in a list of which drives would be affected by reverting to an older point which I tried and which didn't work I just now tried the Startup Repair system and...

Have you considered using Knoppix Live CD (Linux) to try to rescue the important stuff to external storage media ? You can then work on the other issue knowing your data is saved elsewhere.



Here's a link to a guide on how to do so. The version of Knoppix may have changed but the same principles apply:

Looks like the computer can't find the registry:

Several different things could cause this.  Start with these free, bootable hardware diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html
I suspect the hard drive, so be sure to run that test.  Also, run the MemTest86+ as I don't trust the results of the Windows Memory Diagnostic
 
Does the computer have a Windows sticker affixed to it?  If so, that'll contain the Windows Product Key

just got a new hard drive so before i installed Vista Ultimate x64 i loaded fail safe defaults in BIOS and made sure to boot from CD before HDD...
I put in the Vista OEM installation disk, Boot from CD and after finishing verifying DMI pool data it continues to go right on to windows recovery...instead of giving me the option to press any key to boot from DVD...
I'm guessing it's an option in Bios i'm over looking but i can't for the life of me figure this out. Looking forward to input. Thanks in advance

Look through the various categories where you will find good info about System Restore, Recovery, etc

Dells of this age usually came with a blue or burgundy or green Dell Windows XP Home Edition Installation CD and it might be also including SP 2, SP 1a, etc.

There is a slight chance the separate Recovery Partition is still intact and you may be able to do a System Recovery from it, however that is the type that does wipe out all data and rebuild to factory condition, and if you do that there goes your files.

Booting from the XP Reinstallation CD will not help except that you could run the chkdisk utility....from the Windows XP Recovery Console which you can access from the CD.....

Caution>>> if you choose to reinstall XP from the XP CD you will lose all your data!!!

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4400/solve.htm#1136934

there is a good section specifically on power problems which you can see if you simply scroll down the page at link above
****An XP Repair install might be able to fix your problem, read about it here, but you absolutely must follow what is says to do, and not install a new copy of Windows, just try a Repair of the existing XP

You might be able to rescue data from that hard drive and that should be your FIRST priority, not fixing anything, if there is irreplaceable data you need to recover and move to safer media.

There is a chance the hard drive has been affected by the power surge

Or, the problem is simply a boot file issue, this is not known yet....

Another thing you can try to do is boot up from a Dell Resource CD with the diagnostics program which can test the hardware...perhaps you recall having a set of CD's if you got this Dell new?

Not sure how to escape this infinite loop. It started with me copying the OEM recovery partition from my Ideacentre b540 to an external hard drive to free space on my desktop hard drive. I tested the recovery program and it couldn't locate the recovery drive.

I went ahead and copied the recovery partition back to the desktop hard drive to restore to essentially default settings. I tried the recovery program again but this time got stuck in an infinite loop where I'm told windows can't run the script X:\onekey\main\lrscall.vbs.

I'm thinking when I copied the recovery partition back to the desktop it was formatted with drive letter H instead of X so the path is messed up. I know my windows 8 partition is fine. meaning niot corrupt, but cannot boot to it anymore, the computer keeps trying to boot to recovery

Can someone please help me get out of this loop?

Below are the instructions if the hard drive is blank.
1.Select "Yes" to repartition the HDD or "No" to keep the existing partitions.
2.Click either choice, but these instructions follow the repartition scenario.
3.Select "Fully Clean the drive" as this will take several minutes to complete.
4.Click Reset to begin the process.

Dont know if you want to consider using this which is free for download http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/download.html I would think that, to save any headaches, it would be best to wipe and reinstall,depends on which way you want to go ...Ive been through the recovery loop and its very frustrating ....

A:My PC stuck in an emachines system recovery loop

Nice summary of the situation, well done .Is this your system, http://www.emachines.com/support/product_s...ps&subcat=T Series&model=T5216 ?Drivers at http://www.emachines.com/support/drivers.html.The loop for the recovery option...is difficult for me. I've looked at similar instances where an XP repair install produced a loop, but no clear resolution of the situation. Although I say "similar", these are really not similar, since those involve a MS Genuine XP CD and not recovery/restore disks.I have to do some more research, hang on. Hopefully, someone with more of a clue will see this and post their thoughts.Louis

A:Windows 7 Won't boot caught in recovery loop

1) See if there is an option in bios to recognize USB at boot. If so, enable it.
2) The simple answer is to replace the internal cd drive. You're going to have to do it at some point and it's not an expensive proposition.

Hello,

I have an issue with Windows Vista 32x on my Asus laptop. Whenever i turn on the pc, i am taken to a windows error recovery page and am given two options - both of which take me back to this error recovery page.

Vista was pre installed on my pc, so i dont have a Vista DVD to boot from so i can use windows repair.

My other problem is that i am currently travelling in Europe, and i need to know if i can use a Vista DVD in say French, to perform Windows repair.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I now hope I am in the right spot to get some help. I am new at this stuff and I couldn't figure out how and where to post my problem.

Now I implemented the tutorial about my problem and it worked just great except that whenever I start or restart, the problem is still there and I have to use the tutorial again to use my PC. I am now thinking of leaving it on 24/7.

Is this all because of some lousy updates from Microsoft as some others are saying. Do I continue to update. I need some help in this matter. Anyone have some suggestions other than reloading again because I did that and the problem came back.

Hello, I'm at a loss and afraid I've lost all my files.   Every time I restarted my computer I kept getting the Windows Boot Manager error message: Status: 0xc000000f Info: An error occured while attempting to read the boot configuration data. However, after googling and trying numerous methods to repair this, I now keep getting prompted with the Windows Recovery Manager.  I assumed that choosing the default factory restore option would prompt me with a back up option, but it didn't and proceeded to reformat.  I quickly shut my computer down. I don't know what to do next because now all I get is the Windows Recovery Manager option. Any help would be much appreciated!

A:Windows Boot Manager Error / Windows Recovery Manager Issue

If this string of events actually did start to reformat the drive, it might still be recoverable.  I would boot the computer to an independent OS IE: Linux Live on a CD or DVD and then look at the drive.  Then use that to copy your data to another drive.  Once the data is saved, then do whatever you want with this corrupted drive.  Do not try to continue with any other operations until the data is saved elsewhere.Since this PC came with Vista, once the data is saved, you could try the HP REcovery Manager to restore the original OS. Or just start over this a new install of windows 7

CPU: AMD fx 6100 Six-Core
Memory: 12272 MB DDR3 1439 MHz
 
My name is Ness. My computer received an unexpected shutdown. When I tried to boot it up it when into an auto repair loop. System restores did not help.  So I tried to load my Boot Manager, however it instantly crashes.  I assume there is something wrong with Booting Files. I was hoping to repair the Master Boot Record with Windows Preinstallation Environment. I tried using WinPE from a boot-able usb, however the program doesn't fully initialize and it hangs on "wipeinit" in the command prompt.I do have the Windows 7 Disc at the moment. I'm not sure what to do. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Hi troubled.user,

Try going to safe mode again and see if you are able to get internet access while in safe mode. Assuming you do, try downloading two programs called "HitmanPRO" and "Malwarebytes". Install them both and then first run HitmanPRO then Malwarebytes. Let both programs run and detect any viruses/spywares on your computer and delete them. Hopefully this helps you out.

A:Infinite Reboot Loop. Cannot access Recovery Console.

I suspect you won't get a proper boot because of the memory you will probably need to replace it before you can go any further, once you do though here is a tut to remove daemon tools and get you back on track as this does happen quite frequently with that program when leaving images mounted and restarting.

(Link removed by Admin)

But replace the bad memory or you'll never know.
This can cause file corruption.

You might be able to re-start the system restore process by launching safe mode.Just after the BIOS screen appears, press F8 repeatedly until the "Advanced boot options" menu appears.From there select "Safe Mode". If the computer successfully boots into safe mode, you should recieve a dialogue stating "windows is running in safe mode, do you wish to proceed or run system restore".Run the system restore and see if it managed to complete it this time (assuming that it will let you get this far).message edited by thomasad

Recently updated my Asus K VD to windows Had alot of problems so far so when I got another blue screen of death this evening I wasn't really worried Unfortunatly this time I was not able to overcome the problem myself so I am hoping to get some help from this forum First time I am on such a forum so I will begin with describing the problem I had some troubles with WinRar so I uninstalled it meaning to Install it at a later time For the uninstalment to complete I had to restart my PC so I did But when I booted the laptop it went straight into Preparing Automatic Repair with the circle of dots running above menu loop Automatic without recovery/troubleshoot Repair it Then the text dissapears and it leaves an empty screen I have had automatic repair issues before so I was expecting to see Automatic Repair loop without recovery/troubleshoot menu the Windows troubleshoot menu from where you can refresh or reset Windows and have other options too But instead of going there the screen stays empty and after about minutes it sometimes flashes a BSOD screen or it restarts itself Automatic Repair loop without recovery/troubleshoot menu to go to preparing automatic repair again and fall Automatic Repair loop without recovery/troubleshoot menu into the same loop The frustrating thing is that I do not have any control or options it just keeps looping If I can get into the troubleshoot menu I can reset windows as I have done before but I simply do not have those options Some basic information about my PC from the top of my head Asus K VD SX V Windows Pro without disc bit GB RAM NVidia GeForce gt M GB RAM If any other information is requierd I'll try to find Thanks in advance Leonard

Hello. I bought a new laptop recently, the  HP ENVY 15-ae121nd - Laptop. I tried to install crucial DDR3L memory in it, changing the standard 1x8gb memory in the laptop with 2x8gb Crucial DDR3L 1600mhz RAM. I checked at the crucial site and thes ram should be compatible. However, when I switch the ram it goes into a bios recovery boot loop. When I put back the standard ram delivered with the laptop it boots up again. What do I need to do here? a bios update? I want to be able to utilise 16gb of ram so I can run some more virtual machines... Can someone point me in the right direction. The live agent at crucial personally checked if the ram is compatible and it is. the numbercode on my crucial ram : CT102464BF160B.C16FER HELP!

A:Automatic repair loop; Recovery options not working

My system gets this all the time, and you are not going to like what I tell you to try:

First, the Repair may not be finalizing, because it cannot fix the problem, which is usually Read Element Failure on your system drive. To Check for that and repair, it, download Hiren's Boot CD from the link below my Sig Pic. Boot to that and go into DOS programs and find GWSCAN. Run it, and check your drive using the SMART and Quick Test tools. If it finds a problem, then exit that app, and find VIVARD in the Hard Disk tools, you have to exit back out to the main Hiren's Menu to get back to it, it's in Hard Drive Tools under Dos.

If you have an SSD drive, don't use any of those tools, you will have to download disk checking and repair tools from the SSD Manufacturer. But for most Winchester Arm hard Drives, ViVard will re-map the whole drive.

When that is done, boot to Mini XP on Hiren's - And ruin a FULL CHKDSK on the system drive, don't worry about non system drives. You can also use a Windows 8 Install DVD, booting to that and from Command Prompt use CHKDSK. However you do it, do a full CHKDSK. You should also so an Automatic Repair from the Install disk as well- Also, you will want to run the Windows 7/8 equivalent of FixMBR and Fixboot, which are in one command now, called Bootrec.exe - Bootrec /FixMBR can repair any MBR problems.

Finally when that is done, just boot from the hard drive, and see if your Automatic Repair starts and finalizes - If it wants to do another full scan on your drive, let it, but let it finish, and it will SAY "Finalizing" when it gets to the last part.

I have found in my case, Auto Repair Boot Loops can be fixed, this is just the process I use, but basically, you need to check your entire Hard Drive surface for errors, and Windows 8 can't do this, so it gets stuck in that loop.

You might find you can boot external media with the HD removed.

To get around that, try turning off secure boot, then see if you can boot external media.

It sounds like your HDD may have some issues.
Download the ISO image for Seatools in my signature. Burn the image to CD using IMGBurn also in my signature. Boot off of the newly created CD and run the Short and Long tests on the drive. If either tests fails, the HDD needs to be replaced.

A:Automatic repair fail loop; recovery options not working

The most likely cause for this scenario is a failing hard drive. So, I suggest downloading your drive manufacturer's diagnostics to create a bootable CD, and using it to run the long drive test. The quick tests don't always report problems with the hard drive accurately, and if the drive is under warranty, you will need the long test to generate an error code which you can use for an RMA. I'm a newbie here, but I've run my own computer services company for 14 years, and this is an issue that I see frequently. You might have defective memory or even a motherboard problem, but this scenario is typical for a bad drive.

Confirm the Partition Marked Active is 100mb System Reserved (if you have it) or Win7 partition (if you don't).

Then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times until Win7 starts.

If this fails boot into System Recovery Options to System Restore backward until you find a working configuration.

Help. My Hp Touchsmart 300 won't boot up windows it goes to the blue house screen when switched on.  If I press F11 it will only let me do a system recovery with warning it will go back to factory setting.  I want to "file back up program" but it is greyed off and won't let me click it.

Hello, Welcome to the HP Support forum. Thank you for post. Some (most) HP Recovery procedures include procedure to back-up files before the actual recovery process. However, yoy may back-up your files this way usig external software.Please, download GNU/Linux version - > Linux Mint XFCE 18 - Linux based OS.  >> https://linuxmint.com/edition.php?id=222 Download/save the ISO image. You need to write it on a new blank DVD or on empty USB thumbdrive (min 2 GB capacity).  How to create bootable ISO on USB device >> http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/create-a-usb-stick-on-windowsorHow to write ISO to DVD >> http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/burn-a-dvd-on-windows   When ready with the USB drive or with the DVD: * Ensure Secure Boot is disabled.* Ensure Legacy mode is enabled.* Save the UEFI/BIOS changes.Details>> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03653226 Eventually, please, shutdown the computer using the power button.Insert the Windows USB thumdrive or the DVD prepared previouslyPower  on the PC.As soon as you press the power-on button, keep hitting the Esc button (like tap-tap-tap).This should open a HP Startup Menu which may look similar to this one Choose F9 to open Boot options. Select the thumb drive as boot option.You will now boot from Linux Mint media. Once ready and once you open the Files, you will notice it has automatically mounted your PC's HDD - you will be able to browse through your directories and copy/backup to external device the required files.  Once ready, you can use the F11 option to reimage your PC  / restote to factory default condition.Hope this helps, let me know how it goes.
