Q: HP recovery manager - Recovery environment not doing anythin...

Hello, I am trying to completely factory reset my pc but when I select Windows Recovery Environment in HP recovery manager, it just brings me to the login screen after it restarts my computer. I have tried factory resetting using windows but I get the message 'Could not find the recovery environment.'Is it possible for me to factory reset without having to spend any money, or will I have to order a disk from HP?

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello dear friends,

I believe that I have some serious problems in my laptop. I will list some of them, and I hope that maybe someone can help me out because I'm getting crazy with these issues!

1. I cannot use recover options in Windows 8.1 because it says "Could not find recovery environment".

2. When I go to Advanced Start up, under Recovery menu, it does not show Troubleshoot option.

3. When I try to Create a Recovery drive, it says "We can't create a recovery drive on this PC".

4. When I try to enable/disable "reagentc" in CMD, it says "Operation Failed:3".

5. I cannot access in Bios, since I bought the laptop, and therefore I cannot re install a fresh copy of windows with my flash drive.

Basically, I'm stuck.

Hope someone can help me!

I am running windows 7 on my laptop. I has windows vista before the upgrade. I had recovery discs for windows vista created from the recovery manager. I tried to make discs for windows 7. I would like to know why it won't let me make a disc for windows 7 because if I had trouble and needed to put in the recovery discs I wouldn't want to use the ones i had for windows vista. what should i do? here are screenshots to show what happens when i try to create the discs for windows 7.

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?

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

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.

My roommate has decided to install iatkos on my computer and messed up windows. I could handle fixing it if that was all, but then he decided to fix it himself and in the process deleted neccessary stuff.
Now, when I start up the computer, it opens windows recovery environment and says that config files are missing or invalid.
Specifically \boot\bcd
And it fails to see install USB when I plug it in. It can't boot from USB. So, what do I do? If I managed to boot from USB I could install Windows over iatkos partition, if it's possible to fix boot files of original. I can't install new over opd ones. That's not an option.

A:Could not find recovery environment

If you used EaseUS to partiton your system, you may have caused problems for yourself. That utility seems to mess up Recovery partitions by turning them into OEM partitions.

Open diskpart, select the drive and do a list partition command and attach the results. If the type shows as OEM, you may have the problem. But note, there are some systems which set up possibly one OEM partition as a result of their process.

There are also quite a few threads dealing with resolving problems caused by EaseUS.

Hello after reading the whole topic about this i still need some help.
I used easeUS Partition Master, and that broke the link to the recovery. I fixed it but somehow it snapped again.

On the screenshot you see that Windows RE location is empty, somehow i can't seem to fix this.

As i can see the recovery image location is right.
For both i checked the offset twice, i changed their ID's (because it said OEM etc)

Thanks in advance.
ps. Just found out that i posted this in the wrong part, can someone change this?

A:recovery environment your pc needs to be repaired (win 8)

It means that the system couldn't find a file by that name.
Could be that the file doesn't exist (was erased), that the path to the file is incorrect, or that the drive has been erased or is broken

It's seems to me that you've done all the necessary steps to copy the file(s) - so you should have been able to get them.
If that's the case, then it's likely that the files are destroyed/missing/overwritten.

STOP messing with the disk if the files MUST be recovered! Any operations (to include booting up) can make recovery of the files much more difficult/expensive - or even make them unrecoverable.

The first step is to decide how desperate you are to recovery these files.
Here are some recovery utilities - they are Windows based, so you'd have to use a Windows based boot disk to access the hard drive (read the documentation with each program to see how they work from a Windows based boot disk.
There are free recovery utilities (such as PC Inspector - kostenlose Software fr die Datenrettung von CONVAR - Die Datenretter. ) - a very good utility, but very difficult to use
There are pay for utilities (I like GetDataBack from Data Recovery - Data Recovery Software - RAID Recovery - NAS Data Recovery). It'll tell you what files that it can recover - but you'll have to pay $80 US in order to recovery them.

If you still can't recover the data, consider using a professional data recovery service (I can't recommend one as I haven't used any of them). The price for this usually starts around $250 (US) - and can go as high as $2000 (from what I've seen)

After you've attempted the data recovery, then try this free Hard Drive diagnostic (to see if the hard drive is dead/dying): Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure

Post back with your results so we can move on to other suggestions.

Odd question, I know. I have stupidly lost/corrupted the boot manager, and can now only boot with a Windows DVD in the drive -- which isn't ideal, since I don't have a working DVD drive and borrowed this one from a friend just to install with.

The problem is that I can't use the recovery environment. It tells me that the current version won't work with my OS install, even though it's the same disc I just installed the OS with. So using bootrec /fixboot is out.

Is there anything I can do from within Windows itself?

After having backed up XP on a DVD with Acronis True Image, I tried a recovery process, i.e., restoring XP to its original place alongside Vista. When I now go through the dual boot process at pc startup and select XP, I get a message stating that Windows could not boot. It displays "/ntldr", status : 0xc0000225, Info : cannot load selected entry due to missing or corrupt application. There is no problem booting into Vista at startup.

Then I tried to reset my laptop by pressing the "Reset" option (with the usb connected) but surprisingly it is throwing an error.

"Could not find the recovery media"
"Please insert widows installation or recovery media and restart"

(Note: I don't have any thing in the USB apart from recovery image)

Please people I need your expert advice on this as it is very much in emergency to reset my laptop.

Any help is much appreciated

Hi everyone,

Today when I switched on my computer, mysteriously, a Windows 8-esque recovery menu popped up, those with huge buttons and Metro-fied, although my computer is running Windows 7. I decided to try it again, pressing F8 during startup and choosing 'Repair your computer' to trigger the recovery options. The Windows 8 recovery menu appeared again.

I installed the preview versions of Windows 8 previously but has since removed them. Is there any way to remove these last bits of Windows 8 and restore the old Windows 7 Recovery Environment (with all the System Restore and stuff)?

That is the Repair Disk you use to try to repair WIn7 when it won't boot.

You dont' need to install it - just keep it on hand in case it's needed.

You want the Win7 Installation DVD - do you see that? You might also have Recovery Disks. If in question type out what is printed on each disk.

Boot the DVD or Repair disks following these steps: How to Boot your Computer from a Bootable CD or DVD

Then follow these illustrated steps to install: Clean Install Windows 7

Here's a rundown of this system's history:
Bought it prebuilt as a business computer from Dell.
Used it.
Lightning: HDD-1=Poop (usable, but blue screens and freezes a lot)
HDD-2 works fine (purchased new)
Months pass.
Now my dad logs into his e-mail, looks at a message, deletes it, walks away for a few minutes
The computer crashes and only boots to Windows Recovery Environment.
And that's my problem. I can't do anything but boot to this mode and I've restored to the factory image and my own image (created from HDD-1's factory image) and nothing worked.
I've even attempted to bcdedit recovery mode off, but no such luck.
My friend tells me that I need to use a UPS or a Surge Protector and that the power in the business could've spiked and caused HDD failure.
Any halpz and inputz?

To find out if this is your hdd you can download a diagnostic tool from the hdd's manufacturer.
If you look at the hdd the name of the manufacturer will be printed on it, if you provide me with this information I will find a download which you will burn as a ISO file to boot from and run the test.
You may need to access the BIOS to make your DVD/CD-ROM the first device in the boot order if it is not already.

A:system crashes & loss of recovery environment

Hi azhar ... and welcome to the forums ...

If it's been less than 30 days since you upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1, you should be able to go back to Windows 8.1 with just a few clicks. For 30 days, your old system is kept in a "Windows.old" folder. To go back: Start Menu > Settings > Updates and security > Recovery > Go back to Windows 8.1.

If this is the "Recovery" method that you already tried - and it didn't work: you should have seen an error message. Let us know if so (with as much detail as you can remember).

If you've tried other "Recovery" methods, what were they?

And ..... since Windows 10's Anniversary Update has been going out to computers for about a week now --- did your computer just upgrade to it (it lists as build 1607 if you have it)? [To check what version you have, click on your Start icon & on your keyboard type RUN ... a RUN icon should appear: click on it. In the Run box, type winver
A small window will open showing you what build version of Windows 10 you have.]

You mention crashes. Stranger things can happen, but it is possible that your system happened to have a hardware problem - by coincidence - just after upgrading to Windows 10. To rule out any faulty hardware issues that might be complicating things, try running the Dell built-in diagnostics. You can do this by
1) Restart your computer
2) As soon as you see the Dell logo during system power-on, start tapping the F12 key.
3) A Boot Menu should appear - select Diagnostics - and run as many diagnostics as you can.
For full details on the diagnostics available for your Dell, here's an article:
What Dell diagnostic tools can I use to diagnose and fix hardware problems? | Dell US

We'll be interested to hear if any errors pop up during the diagnostics, or if you've tried the "Go Back to Windows 8.1" in Recovery, and if it didn't work & gave an error message.

It's late here in California ... but we have techs in all sorts of time zones to help you while OldGray is sleeping ... I'll check back sometime tomorrow to see how you're doing.

I have installed disk filter driver. This driver encrypts disk content.
If Windows 8 boots in Recovery Environment Command Prompt mode then filter driver is not loaded. In consequence of this, the encrypted disk becomes unavailable. I need access to disk in this mode.
How to solve this problem?
Is it possible to manually load driver? Is it possible to configure Windows to load driver in Recovery Environment Command Prompt?
I cannot find detailed information about this mode. Is there documentation about it? How Windows works in this mode?
Thanks in advance!

A:Recovery Environment Command Prompt: driver is not loaded

Encryption is supposed to block unauthorized access to data. Recovery environment is actually a mini OS based on WinPE and it is normal for you to not access your encrypted drive. If you can access your data from a PE then there is no point in encryption.

Insert your windows installation or recovery media, and restart your PC.Unfortunately, foolishly I did not make a backup so I have a feeling that this is going to be an expensive mistake!Any suggestions please?

Sounds to me like you might have to setup VirtualBox better or whatever software you're using. I don't use virtualization, so I can't be more specific.

In your motherboard bios settings, make sure Virtualization is on, or similar. (VT or HAV)

I have a Toshiba Satellite A665-S6094 here for which I have just made the system recovery disks. There are three system recovery disks and an additional disk called "Recovery Environment". This "Recovery Environment" is not included if you buy the system recovery DVDs from Toshiba and my little bit of Googling seems to take me to no explanation as to what the idea is behind this disk.

I suspect it is superfluous; but, what was the idea behind including it in the system recovery set in the first place?

A usb recovery flashdrive is, unlike a recovery DVD, quite durable. If you install Linux on the hard disk it will change the bootloader if you are not careful and no longer allow you to boot to Windows.  Making a usb recovery flashdrive will not remove the ability to use F11 unless you make any changes to the D: Recovery partition. That is where the Recovery Manager boots from when you use F11.

Welcome to the forums!

According to the HP support website, here are the steps to use the recovery manager:

Starting the recovery from Windows Vista
Use the following steps to recover the computer starting from the Windows Vista desktop:
Turn off the computer.Disconnect all connected devices (such as the Personal Media Drive, USB drives, printer, and fax), remove media from drives, and remove any recently added internal hardware. Do not disconnect the monitor, keyboard, mouse, and power cord.Turn on the computer.From the Windows desktop click Start , and then All Programs .Click PC Help & Tools .Click Recovery Manager .
The Recovery Manager Welcome screen appears.Click Next . On the Software Program Re-installation screen select No , and then click Next .On the Hardware Re-installation screen select No , and then click Next .On the screen that prompts for Microsoft System Restore select No , and then click Next .The Recovery Manager prompts if you want to restore the computer to its original factory shipped condition. Click Yes , and then click Next .
The computer restarts and opens the Recovery Manager program.Click Next .On the Microsoft System Restore screen select No , and then click Next .Confirm that you want to run a System Recovery by selecting Yes , and then click Next .The Recovery Manager gives you the option of backing up your data files. Backing up your files is recommended. To back up your files select Yes , and then click Next . Follow the onscreen instructions.
If you do not want to backup your files, select No , and then click Next .After the System Recovery is complete, the computer restarts and continues into Windows setup. Complete the setup screens and wait until the computer finishes the setup. Then, turn off the computer, reconnect all peripheral devices, and turn on the computer.Before using the computer, update and protect your computer. Reinstall any virus and security software that was installed before the System Recovery.Reinstall any software applications that were added after puchasing the computer, and any files that were backed up.

If you can't access the recovery manager with these steps or it's not working, you'll need to order recovery disks from HP directly.
Please let us know if this works for you.

Using an E-machines desk top with Vista 32-bit Home Premium.

Recently, I tried to install some service pack update & it wreaked havoc on my computer. After fiddling around with it (it had basically frozen while installing the pack), the whole thing ended up wiping Everything clean & in the end, I needed the install disc to fix it. (which I *just* found)

So now I'm stuck on some "Welcome Window" & it won't connect to the internet. I know the connection works, cause I'm using the same broadband line to it on my laptop now. I keep reading online about fixing w/ a "Recovery Manager" in the start menu, but I'm not seeing that anywhere. There's an error I see that says "Error 815"..."WAN miniport", etc.
What to do now? Thanks.

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.  >> 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 >> to write ISO to DVD >>   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>> 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.

A:HP Recovery Manager

Umm where did you see that cause you can't uninstall it and its not even listed in the Program and Features. You can only disable the windows system restore. I'm pretty sure all HP products have the Recovery Manager to restore you computer to Factory Condition.

Hello, Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum. Welcome!  HP Recovery is only available for comuter that originally came with Windows preinstalled by HP (a.k.a. OEM Windows). It will appear if the recovery partitions are working and intact. Once you start your computer after pressing the power-on button, keep hitting the Esc button (like tap-tap-tap).Then an HP boot options will appear and you can choose the recovery options. Alternatively, start to Windows and load it from there. More information can be found in the HP official article >>  (Win 10)>>  (Win 8/8.1) If the recovery partitions are not working, if you want to recover your machine to factory default condition, you may have to reinstall Windows and/or purchase recovery media from HP to restore to factory default condition. Let me know if this works for you.

My question is hopefully simple.  I recently reinstalled Windows 7 on my HP Pavilion 6000 series desktop using the HP Recovery Manager app built-in to the computer.  The restore went well, without any hitches. What I need to know is whether the process wiped the hard drive clean.  That is, is the data I created, e.g., Excel, Word files, etc., still there even though the file names, etc. have been deleted?  Is the computer hard drive wiped such that I could donate the computer and not worry about someone using some data recover utility to find and recreat the data that was on my C:\ partition?

I press it, and nothing happens, it remains red.  I don't think the issue is the internet connection because if I boot up the computer normally I do get an internet connection.  Not sure if I should continue to the next step in the recovery manager or not since I don't appear to have an internet connection in there. Help please.

If there's here any user with a Hewlett-Packard PC that has preinstalled Windows 7 , maybe has notice that has some recovery tools, which are call "Recovery Manager" and is showed in the start menu. Inside the program there are many options, and two of them are which I need further information. (Sory but the interface is in Spanish, anywhere options are positioned in the same place of the English version... I think :s)

One of them (mark as number 1 in red) allows to restore the computer to its original factory condition. So what I figure out is that the program will format the hard drive and will install install everything from scratch. Am I rigth?
The other option (mark as number 2 in red) allows to delete the recovery partition. Is that recovery partition the same which is common name as FACTORY_IMAGE ?

If anyone KNOWS something about this, please give me a hand, thanks.

A:Need help with Recovery Manager

Unless it gives you a further option for Non-Destructive Recovery which saves your files, a Factory Recovery will wipe the HD first before putting it back to factory condition.

It can also be run from boot by tapping the F11 key at bootup.

Make the Recovery Disk set from within that Windows7 utility now so you have another option, or can then consider wiping the Recovery partition although having it as another backup is probably wise with a Win7 computer.

Many tech enthusiasts find a clean-copy retail installer for their version to clean reinstall without the factory bloatware, using the Product Key on COA sticker on machine. In that case, you can wipe the HD before reinstalling, but make the Recovery disks first as sometimes the maker requires factory install to service hardware warranty.
