HP Recovery Manager option of "Minimzed Image Recovery" and ...

Q: HP Recovery Manager option of "Minimzed Image Recovery" and ...

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 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.)

I upgraded my windows 10 edition to version 1511.After some days i noticed that the recovery manager option for HP recovery manager (the 14 gb hp recovery partition) in the troubleshot option when i press F11 doesn't exist now.I tried in many ways but nothing fixed that.I bought my pc recently.Does there any option to active the recovery partition again for factory reset ...

m55z1n Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but as documented in this HP post, if your PC came preinstalled with the original version of Win10, after you do the November Update, the Recovery Manager no longer works:  HP PCs - Updating to the Latest Version of Windows 10 (Fall 2015 Update) | HP® Customer Support However, if what you want is a way to do recovery, all is not lost. Instead, you can 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 entire drives.What I recommend is the following:1) Download and install Macrium Reflect (MR)2) Run MR 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 stick3) Use the option to create a boot USB stick or CDMy experience is that MR, when using the High Compression option, typically can compress the saved image file to about 50% of the USED space in the OS partition.  This means if you have an 80GB OS partition, and 40GB is used, MR only needs about 20GB to store the image file.I use this all the time and it typically takes less than 10 minutes to do the image backup and about the same time or less to do a restore.  Plus, MR has the option to Add a Recovery Boot Menu entry.  This allows you then to boot into WinRE, and you can then use that to do a restore -- when you can't boot into Windows!NOW, you have the means to restore a full working system from the external drive or USB stick in only a few minutes. Good Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------If my posts helped you, please click the Thumbs-Up symbol on my post to say thanks.If my posts solved your problem please click "Accept As Solution".========================================================================

I have owned from new my HP 250 G4  3 weeks now and rather happy with it however I enterd the Recovery Manager to make a set of recovery media  and when I go through the proceedure of calculating the disc space that wouldl be required it only gives me the option to insert a USB drive with a capacity of at least 16 GB then click the next button. Their is no option for DVD recovery dISC. The mannual I read says I can make 1 set of recovery media only and it can be either USB drive or DVD. Could somene clearify if it should be possible to make a recovery DVD with  the 250 G4 model, also confirm if it should be possible to make 1 set  of recovery DVD and 1 USB drive  recovery, or only 1 choosing between USB or DVD . Thank you for any help given

A:Recovery manager media creation usb drive option only

Hi, You can only make one USB or DVD's set but not both. There are many laptops now do not have optical drive (CD/DVD drive), HP may drop this option. Sorry I can't aswer this but that would be the way to go. Regards.

Dear experts, Please help me on this as I have been seaching for a solution for about 4 hours now... Somehow my recovery partition is damaged, so I use the recovery disc which I created when I bought the computer.  I used the disc to start the computer, and after loading files and everything, in the Recovery Manager menu the "System Recovery" is greyed out.  Note that I haven't changed any hardware on the computer. Please help! Thank you!

This “HowTo” provides information and instruction how to create a USB recovery media flash drive using the Toshiba recovery ISO image files or Toshiba Recovery discs (DVDs)

To create a USB recovery media flash drive, a USB flash drive with at least 16GB disk space is suggested (depends on the size of the ISO images or recovery discs).

Note: Since 2015 the ISO layout has changed and a different procedure must be processed to create the USB media. The new recovery media type can be identified by the names of the ISO files.

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.

Well I finished my project - the program script allows me to create MBR and GPT hard drive partitions with a recovery image partition. The script also allows me to install 3 different versions of windows. and lastly it allows me to capture a recovery (push button reset) image. which can then be used to create recovery media..

Here is the Menu Snippet:

After HP hard drive failure, HP sent and I installed/activated the replacement hard disk, up to a Factory Install (Win 7, 64-bit).  But my efforts to restore to my System Image backup are blocked.  I managed to reach the Windows System Recovery Options panel, from where I select System Image Recovery, which successfully detects the external System Image that I previously backed up, but when I select Next to continue with the recovery, I am blocked by a message indicating that the System Image Recovery requires reformatting the disk where the Recovery Environment is running -- restart.  But neither restarting, nor HP Recovery, nor Windows Recovery, nor booting from the HP-created Windows Repair disc, nor booting from the HP-provided System Recovery discs allow me to restore from my System Image backup.   In desperation, I then formatted the C: drive, but a reboot simply re-installed the Factory image from drive D: (HP Recovery drive).

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

Hey all, I've gotta question I installed my W7 over my Windows Vista :P(Yay!!)

And i wanna "insert" a Windows Seven recovery thing-in a sense into it... lemme post a screen.. lol.

That D: came with my laptop, and i now wanna delete it, then make a recovery disk for my windows 7.... but i dont wanna have to use an actual CD.... know what im saying?

A:Using the "Recovery Manager" Option In W7


You can use the following tutorial to create a system backup image

Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

If you format the partition you can copy/move the backup data (may need to format the partition first)

If you ever needed to, Using the Windows 7 DVD (booted) you can use the restore option in 'Advanced Recovery Options' to restore from the image you copied/saved onto the blank partition.

Hope this helps

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'm trying to use True Image 11 to image the system partition of my laptop. When I get to the place where it asks me to select the partition to image, there are two: the main NTFS system partition and a small recovery partition. Should I select both or just the system partition? I have heard that the recovery partition must be in a certain place on the HD to be usable. If so, and if I needed to restore the image , the recovery partition might not be restored to the same place and would therefore be unusable. Any advice on how to proceed here? Thanks.

A:Using Acronis True Image to image disk with hidden recovery partition

you should image it to the recovery partition, although it may not be a good idea to have it on the same HDD
I myself use an external drive which is probably the safest

a few months ago i bought a HP ENVY Notebook - 15-q207tx with a pre installed windows 8 and i made a recovery disk with win8 but then win10 came and i upgraded my notebook to win10 and when i try to make a recovery disk for win10 it said that i can only make 1 recovery disk so i cannot make a recovery disk with win10... can anybody help me with this? thanks in advance....

A:recovery option

Hi, The recovery partition and the ability to create 1 set of recovery media only applies to the original operating system that the notebook shipped with - this is to comply with Microsofts T&Cs for oem versions of Windows. However, another option you could consider would be to create your own Windows 10 installation media. When you upgrade to Windows 10, the activation servers record a hardware profile on your machine.  As long as the existing installation of Windows 10 has activated Ok after the upgrade from 8.1, you can just create your own Windows 10 installation media and use this to reinstall Windows 10 when required. A guide on creating this media and how to use it to perform a clean installation is detailed in the guide on the following link.  Note: When you use this method, at the activation screen, select 'I don't have a Product key' - Windows will activate automatically once the installation has completed. Regards, DP-K

I have a Dell XPS 17 laptop that has dual drives - c & d. The c drive crashed and was replaced by dell. We are now trying to do a system image recovery from the d drive. We are following How to do a System Image Recovery in Window7 from seven
After Selecting the System Image from the D Drive (STEP TWO, # 5 and 6), the computer prompts to create a repair disk. The only way to move forward is to create or not create the disk. In either case, it then has you restart the machine, takes you through the process again.... Step 5/6.... Never gets to Step 7 to actually DO the System Recover!
What am I missing. We have been at this for over 2 weeks and any help would be much appreciated!

A:Windows Image Recovery-Can't move forward after selecting Sys Image

Are you booting off your Windows DVD? Or are you using the Windows Recovery Environment by hitting DEL or PF8 to pull up Windows Repair?

I would think the only time you are asked to create a repair disk is during the actual TAKING/creating of the System Image (after it is complete).

We have sales force of 90 who all have laptops, on occasion these laptops will not boot because of some kind of system corruption which will in turn force the salesmen to drive into our corporate location to get the issue fixed, which is usually done by running the XP Recovery Console and a few commands like CHKDSK /R /P. This causes downtime which these guys cannot afford.

My question is, would it be possible or even make sense to perhaps somehow give these guys the ability to do some kind of recovery themselves? Maybe create an XP thumbdrive? Or maybe even XP's own system restore? Remember, these guys are anything but "computer smart" so it would have to be something simple they could do or be walked through over the phone. Also as a side note, these guys do not have admin rights.

A:Remote recovery option
This creates a second boot option for recovery console.
I'm afraid admin rights would be required to run recovery console.
Perhaps you could give an admin password as required.

I HAVE A HEWLET PACKARD NETBOOK THAT CAME PR INSTALLED WITH WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM. I then upgraded to windows 8. I now want to go back to windows 7. I plugged the laptop hard drive into my pc and have noticed that there is a 20gb recovery partition. I cant boot from this when hard drive is in the laptop. Is there anything I can do

A:Recovery option windows 7

Upgrading to W8 must have changed the HD partitions to GPT. You may find something in the Tutorials section how to change the settings to allow W7 to boot and install. But as for the discs you could order the recovery set for W7 from HP or if you still have your original product key for W7 Home Premium it should work with a W7 Home Premium iso that you burn to DVD or use to create a bootable USB installer.

There are probably links to the iso downloads on the forum if you have broadband.

Maybe someone will chime in with the settings changes that will allow you to boot the W7 media. Partition Wizard should allow you to change GPT partitions to MBR type.

I have a new 8900.  I want to create recovery media in case I have to completely restore the computer OS.  One place on Dell site seems to imply I need a 16GB USB drive to do this.  Somewhere else it indicates a DVD disk is what I would have to make a recovery.  After much searchng I am  at a loss.  
Any suggestions about how I should best create recovery media?  I am familiar with having the DVDs shipped with computers from Dell.  That's not the case now I guess. Also, does the recovery media include required device drivers?  I assume the recovery media is on one of the 4 partitiions shipped with my 2TB HDD

as far as ive ever known, xp cds come stock with the recovery console.

Hi all Here are the details of what has been going on with my other computer I am open to any and all suggestions or feedback on what I can try doing next It is having issues loading Windows for whatever reason It acts like it cannot even find the windows files The hard drive is still showing up in BIOS though so the installation must have gotten corrupted somehow during some Windows updates As soon as this issue came up I put in 7 available. Windows is should do not I Option Recovery What the same Windows installation cd that I had used to install it with and went to the recovery options menu From there I told it to do a system restore and after it got done with that and rebooted it still was not finding the Windows installation So I tried going back into the System Recovery option a second time so that I could tell it to try repairing the windows installation and it was saying that the Windows Recovery option is not compatible with the version of windows I have installed which does not make any sense since I just accessed the recovery option a few moments before Now it won t even let me access it I tried using other system restore disks from Windows just in case they may work and they all give me the same error message I Windows 7 Recovery Option is not available. What should I do cannot access the system recovery option at all now I should have had it try to repair the installation first while I had the chance instead of system restore Now it is too late I even tried loading from a Linux operating system to see if I could try to create a current system image of windows and back it up somehow so that I can just reinstall Windows again and restore it to the way it was using the system image but linux is even having trouble loading I am not sure what to do now I would have no issue reinstalling Windows again if I had a current system image elsewhere that I can restore it to Have you heard of people being locked out of the system recovery option like this It seems to be a common error on quite a few forums with Windows and some of the answers or suggestions work for some people but not for others Thank you for your help Let me know if you need anymore information I will check back periodically for any updates to this thread Have a great day nbsp

Hey all, I am trying to restore my vista system back to its dell inspiron531s factory settings. Long story short sent it in to get fixed and it came back worse now Best Buy wants to charge to remove malware or something. i want to reformat and reinstall but not having any luck. Control F11 doesnt work, I tried using PCRestore in the recovery partition but it says its reformatting then just errors out about halfway through (no Code). I cant use the CD/dvd drive so no disks will work and I dont have a floppy drive.

Can this thing be restored to factory in some other way?? My last idea at this point is to try to make a bootable flash drive, but I believe that destroys the recovery partition doesnt it? Not to mention more work if there is another way. Any info you all could give me would be apprecieated.

I have a recent system image on an external USB hard drive, but when I boot to "system recovery" using my repair disk it can't seem to find my USB drive at all.

The tutorials here mention installing a SATA driver to access disks that are not recognized, but this doesn't seem to be the case.

This drive contains all my important data ( documents, photos and videos), I'm thinking of taking it to a data recovery center, How much would it cost me for a data recovery service? I've been recommended to WeRecoverData data recovery labs by an IT person, Anyone have experience with them? Any help advice? Thanks in advance.

Likely thousands. Hopefully in the future you will make backups of important data.

My setup is exactly the same using the same DVD I used for the initial install that had the option to repir my computer. This is a PC that I built so it has nothing to do with manufacturer.

Why would I not have the same option to repair my computer after a new installation using he same method?

If so have you repaired Win7 boot since then using only bootrec commands, as these dated XP-era commands do not do the full job which Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times does including rewriting the F8 WInRE link.

I remember the days of Windows 2000 and XP where you could install the Windows Recovery Console as a separate OS by using the command winnt32.exe /cmdcons. This would allow you to boot into the Recovery Console without having to load your CD. Obviously the Recovery Console was removed in Vista and 7, and was replaced with the Recovery Mode. I want to know if there's a way to do this with the Windows 7 Recovery Mode. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I need to do a system recovery of Windows XP on an HP Pavilion m7100y desktop Media Center. Of course, I want to save my data. But after following all the steps for the procedure -- from both a disk and from the hard drive -- I am not given the option to do a safe, standard recovery. The only choice I'm given is for a full, destructive recovery that will eliminate my data. Could this be because there is too much damage to allow a safe recovery, or have I overlooked something or done something wrong?

I very rarely have to deal with the Windows Recovery Screen but when I do I cannot make a selection. I always have to wait out the 30 second timer and I can never move to select other options such as safe mode.

My keyboard is installed properly and I have tried several different keyboards.

This has been going on for over a year since I got Windows 7, and I've just been ignoring it until now.

Thanks in advance for any info.

A:Can't select an option at Windows Recovery Screen

You are using a wireless keyboard which I'm sure is causing the problem. Hook up a wired (USB or PS2) keyboard temporarily and that will allow you to do what you need.

Not sure how to solve the wireless keyboard problem, since the driver itself is not loaded until Win 7 boots.

Hi thejonasway91, Welcome to Seven Forums.
I believe you have an OEM version of windows. The first thing you should have done is make your 'Recovery' dvd's.
Once thats done, you can use it to re install your OS. It can be done from the start menu, but I would do it with the settings you have at present.

I wanted to remove the hidden recovery parition on my Asus Zenbook UX31A, which is 20GB in size, and I need that space, because the laptop just has a 128GB SSD, and I am permanently on space limit of about 1-2GB and Windows isn't working anymore properly.

The problem is, when I open the Windows 8 recovery tool, the option for copying the recovery partition is greyed out. I googled for this, and I just could find informations about, that this can happen, but not why, and how to solve it.

A:Can't create a recovery usb stick, option greyed out

Deleting the Recovery Partition is NOT RECOMMENDED

You can only make one copy, than it is greyed out.

Hello All noob to the great site here I've been scouring the net for help with this and just can't seem to find the answer I have a Windows XP Pro install CD that I've slipstreamed a number of times to get all the latest SP's and updates The CD now boots just fine but for some reason the quot Welcome to Setup quot screen never makes itself available i e this is the one where you get the option to install XP repair it by typing R etc Instead it proceeds to load all the necessary files Install Console CD XP Recovery/Repair No option in and then goes straight to the install screen showing the various partitions on the hard drive It just so happens that I've needed the recovery console feature recently but for the life of me I can't figure out how to get it back onto the install CD so that I have that option to choose from when I boot to the CD Just to be clear I don't want to put the recovery console feature onto a hard drive so that it's an option when I turn on the computer I want it to be automatically available again whenever I boot to the XP install CD quot press R quot feature Any help is greatly appreciated - thanks

A:No Recovery/Repair Console option in XP Install CD

You slipstreamed the CD, so you changed it. There is a .bat file + other files that control how XP installs, i.e. full automatic install. This CD was always changed to self-start, so you would need to make a new CD.

My wife's nephew picked up a virus that Avast had flagged as and I have ran Malwarebytes, SuperAnti Spyware, and quarantined trojans that were found several times (also tried it in safe mode). They keep coming back so I was going to do a system recovery with the discs that I had burned when she first got her computer.

The problem is that when I get to the screen to select the dvd drive nothing is populating that box to select. At this point I am stuck. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

This is an Asus computer running Windows 7.

Many Thanks

OK as it is an ASUS, When you turn it on have you tried selecting F8?

Don't try from within Windows

Hey guys my brother wants to recover his laptop his default and i have little experience with asus laptops. Fortunately it seems to have a recovery partition in it, the bad news is i dont know which option to pick out of the 3
Recover Windows to first partition only.
This option deletes only the first partition and allows you to keep other partitions, and to create a new system partition as drive "C".
Recover Windows to entire HD.
This option deletes all partitions from your hard disk drive and creates a new system partition as drive "C".
Recover Windows to entire HD with two partitions.
This option deletes all partitions from your hard drive and creates two new partitions "C" (25%) and "D" (75%).

Which option will let me restore to default and keep recovery partition?

A:Asus recovery partition which option to pick?

What partitions does he currently have?

Are his personal files (video, mp3s, pictures, etc) currently on C? Regardless, they should be backed up.

A picture of Windows Disk Management would help.

I wouldn't bother with the third choice unless he likes that 25/75 proportion. If he wants to delete all partitions and create 2 new ones, he can certainly do that manually after the recovery in any proportion he wants, not just 25/75.

It appears the last 2 choices will wipe the drive clean, which may not be what he wants---depending on his current partition setup.

The description you provided isn't exactly clear which would go back to factory default. My guess would be choice 1 as it is the only choice that does NOT say "deletes all partitions", which, if taken literally, would include deletion of the recovery partition.

You might want to contact Asus support, but that may be an exercise in frustration.

I had noticed some things has changed with Bitlocker on Win8.1 Pro.
First, under the recovery options, there is no option to Saving the recovery key to a USB, and only shows Save to File or to a MS Account.

Anyways, I plugged in my USB flash stick and saved the recovery key TXT file to on that USB. I rebooted, and after the reboot, it started to encrypt.

Second, I am seeing the Bitlockered OS drive not taking up most of the space like I had seen under Win7.
I even selected to Encrypt the ENTIRE drive and not the Used Space.

Is it possible to create a recovery partition or image on a PC, which could recover the PC using a Fn key during boot up ?

I have a PC with a recovery partition which is for vista, which is now obsolete now Imhave moved up to Windows 10 via Windows 7.... never want to recover to vista...

would love over to create my own recovery partition, where pressing e.g. Fn11 during startup invokes the recovery process.....maybe this is too difficult...there is a program called AOMEI OneKey Recovery which promises to do such, or so it looks...

A:create recovery partition with restore option with Fn key

Acronis True Image 2016 does this. You enable Startup Recovery Manager and you can hit F11 during the boot process to recover a disc image. Adds about 30 sec to boot process before it defaults to OS startup.

I've re-installed Windows using an OEM boot CD, and now I cannot get it to boot from the HDD. I have set the prioroty in the BIOS to HDD/CD/Floppy and Windows just gets stuck in a loop when trying to start ("loading personal settings" > "logging off" > "loading personal settings" etc.). It boots fine from the CD if I change the BIOS priority to CD/HDD/Floppy.

I cannot run the recovery program from the CD as it goes straight into the WinXP installation (I'd imagine due to being an OEM CD).

I had to re-install windows due to a virus attack, which I believe must have changed something in the boot registry. Any ideas please?

I was not sure where to post this.

Anyway when i turn the computer on i am given extra option of starting Windows XP media editon or Recovery console and i have 3 seconds to decide. I no longer have combofix installed and want to remove this boot option just to speed things up abit when loading the computer.

How do i do this?

A:Combofix. Remove recovery console option

Hello MatthewC

That option is still present because the Windows Recovery Console is still on your system. It is not removed along with ComboFix. The reason for this is that having the Recovery Console on the system provides powerful recovery options in the event of system failure for any number of reasons. Without the Recovery Console, if Windows XP fails to boot for some reason your options for recovery are very limited. Furthermore, removing the Recovery console will not significantly improve your boot time (about 3 seconds faster)

That being said, the option can be removed by removing the Recovery Console. If you're determined to do this. . . let me know in a reply to this thread and I'll let you know how.

A user has two 500GB hard drives, one installing in their computer, one is a USB hard drive.

If they cloned their currently installed hard drive onto the empty USB one, could they then do absolutely anything software based to their system (even as far as formatting the hard drive and installing another operating system) without fear of complications due to being able to reload the old image again later and get back to the very same state as the computer was when it copied?

A:Are cloned hard drives the ultimate recovery option?

Yes, as long as the user knows that the image will not reflect the current state of the hard drive. ie any thing added software / data after the cloning.

Acronis Disk Director 11 or 12, or something as powerful and thorough, can probably do it.  However, it will very likely take a long long long time to move data folders/files into its assigned partition, leaving alone the factory restore partition [!do not assign it a drive-letter! or "over-run its territory], and after all of that -- you making sure the OS partition is primary and active.  !!Make sure you have restorable backups before attempting this!!

"unmountable boot volume" error usually means hard drive issue.Run hard drive diagnostics: sure, you select tool, which is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive.Depending on the program, it'll create bootable floppy, or bootable CD.If downloaded file is of .iso type, use ImgBurn: to burn .iso file to a CD (select "Write image file to disc" option), and make the CD bootable.NOTE. If your hard drive is made by Toshiba, unfortunately, you're out of luck, because Toshiba doesn't provide any diagnostic tool.

I got into safe mode and advanced boot options but there was no option to system restore
Could anyone help with how to resolve this
Thanks very much

A:Black Screen- Press F11 for Recovery, no system restore option

There will be no system restore points after running Cyberlink power recover as that wipes the old windows and puts a new copy on the drive as I understand it.
At this point in time I would get a hold of the manufacturer for support and warranty since it is only two months old. Just curious, HP?
If it is an HP, What happens when you run the built-in hardware diagnostics. They should be available on the same screen as the Press F11 message.

A:recovery image (D:)

Hi Well ignoring your request for files and recovery media, I am going to suggest you try and recover the partition.  If you have only formatted it and nothing else it mat be recoverable. Piriform Recuva, free download can recover lost files, so we now look for a partition recovery program. AND Partition Wizard Undelete partitions (recover accidentally deleted or lost partitions) OR Usually whether partition can be recognized by system or not depends on the partition table. If partition table is destroyed by virus or deleted accidentally, you will not see the partition you need. But no matter how you get your partition lost, please don't worry! EaseUS Partition Recovery Wizard, a powerful partition recovery software built in EaseUS Partition Master, can do you a favor to recover lost or deleted partitions with simple clicks.  ORStandard undelete programs are perfect for recovering a few files, but if you've lost an entire partition then you'll probably benefit from a specialist application like MiniTool Partition Recovery.

You can not use another computer's Recovery Disks. As you have likely infection and were using inferior AVG bloatware, follow these steps to clean up and then repair your System:

If Safe Mode is not working, download, burn to CD or write to flash stick, boot and run a full scan with Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper.

Once the System is clean, boot into System Recovery Options via the F8 menu or disks as shown in tutorial, run Startup Repair repeatedly no matter what it reports. Post back results.

If this fails, try System Restore from Recovery Options list, then if that fails open a Command Line to run SFC -SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot

If these all fail you can copy out your data using your Windows 7 DVD or Repair CD: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console or Paragon Rescue CD.
System Repair Disc - Create

Then run Factory Recovery from its partition or disks you made or order from Tech Support, or find a Windows 7 installation DVD to clean reinstall using Product Key on COA sticker: Dell Restoring Your Computer?s Software to the Factory Settings
