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

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.)

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.

.... but I didn't touch it.
My d:\ is not empty - it is almost 80% full but when i click on it there are no files. Tried - to the extent of my knowledge - to see if the files are hidden but didn't reach anywhere. Tried a restore point but that didnt work either. Please help

A:HP Recovery Manager says that my recovery partition has been removed

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

How to delete Recovery Manager partitoin? After reinstall successfully, it reboots always to Recovery Manager.

Bios is setup with right order of HardDrive first. Tried Boot.exe too.

Is there a command prompt to delete the Recovery Manager partition? I can't get to my desktop.

A:How to delete Recovery Manager partition?

Why would you want to delete your Recovery Manager partition? It doesn't sound like the reinstall was successful, if your computer continues to boot into recovery mode. Did you use a recovery disk in this process and later remove it? Try booting up in safe mode. If that doesn't work, then I suspect your recovery did not complete successfully.

Also, you may want to try booting from USB and then accessing the hard drive to see if the integrity is OK.

A:Recovery Partition not responding to Rec manager

This works sometimes to boot into Recovery and do a Factory restore. 1.Right-click on "Computer" icon and select manage.2.This will launch the Microsoft Management Console.3.On the left side of the MMC, click on "Disk Management" and it will show you all of the partitions.4.Right-click on the "HP Recovery" partition and select "Mark as Active Partition."5.When the warning prompt appears, select "Yes" - Reboot and it will automatically boot into the Recovery Manager (without pressing F11).

Hello, I've used the recovery media creator to create a USB flash drive recovery media.

If i then use that to restore the Windows 7 installation onto a new hard drive (as SSD) will that drive itself have the recovery media partition on it?

So if I then lose the USB stick could I restore again by holding down zero when powering on?

Or does it recover the Windows partition and nothing more?

Thank you

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 have a Compaq Presario CQ62 417NR having problems. It was bought used and at some point started having  cd-drive malfunctions where it no longer detected hardware and the drive didn't work. I reloaded completely from the recovery partition, it worked fine several days and I was able to install office but after that it stopped working again. I have tried an external usb cd drive but that doesn't work either. At this point, I'm thinking it has driver issues from the recovery and I'd need to buy the disk from HP but I'd like a second opinion as they are not free.

I have a customer's NB200 on the bench. It came in with complete OS failure and would not boot from either the OS partition or the Recovery Partition.

I have checked the Hard Disk and it is in perfect working order. However it seems that all is not well as I cannot get it to boot from the recovery partition even after holding doen the 0 key.

I tried to instruct it to start from the BOOT.INI file by pointing a 'revoery' option at the partition but it just comes up with an error saying <Windows Path>\system32\HAL file is either missing or corrupt. Does anyone know how I should instruct the partition to start or how I could extract the information from the image files?

When you create recovery discs, are they created from the recovery partition that is there to restore to factory settings or some other hidden partition?

Hello! I'm a owner of a HP Mini 5101. It has a function to press F11 to return the system into the "out-of-the-box" state. But my problem starts here. When I press F11 I imediately get a screen that says Windows Boot manager on top and and error : 0xc000000e and required device is inaccessible. This started after I made a "clean" install with the DVD Windows 7 that came with the computer as I tried to avoid all the "crapware" that comes included with the new notebook. If I boot into Windows, the HP_RECOVERY partition is visible and the HP recovery image is on it. Is there anyway to get the F11 recovery back to working state? I have some BCD editing knowledge in that would help in any way with my problem..... Thank you very much! U

A:F11 HP recovery doesn't boot into recovery partition

Thank you very much for getting back to me so fast.I have to apologize as I did not explain my problem in the right way. Technically I am able to boot the partition, but the problem occurs when the partition needs to boot into WinRE or WinPE I guess so that the recovery can start. The loading process gets stuck immediately at the beginning even before anything "Windows related stuff" starts loading. So about five seconds after I turn on the computer and boot into the recovery partition, or pressing F11 the error that I'm describing shows up. Update: I managed to fix my problem. After setting the recovery partition to active, and booting from the installation USB with windows 7, I managed to fix the mbr that was corrupted and the partition didn't know what to boot. So after fixing it, i had no problem running the recovery. Thank you!

Hello I have a Lenovo laptop running Windows Professional and I need about Recovery - Windows 7 Partition/Recovery methods to somehow use system recover to sort out the multiple problems The OS was installed when it was new and no WIndows OS DVD's were issued with the laptop The WIndows install is legit The problem is only the failure of Lenovo to give customers the OS DVD's with the new laptop The Lenovo warranty period has expired and their help support is less than useless The about Recovery Partition/Recovery methods - Windows 7 recovery method in the Lenovo instructions does not work I press the Novo key and F and get to the start of the recovery process where I select language and then when I click Next the process stops with an alert saying I need to log in - see system administrator So I am unable to use the built in Recovery method I read there are several other methods of recovery and two of them I have explored Mircosoft website has a software-recovery section where I can enter my Product ID Key and language and download an ISO for burning to be used as an install disk for fresh WIndow Professional install The required character Windows Key xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx which I obtained using a registration key app but is not accepted by Microsoft so I cannot proceed to download an ISO I believe the Key is correct as it matches what I recorded one year ago and is same using two different Key recovery apps The Lenovo website gave instructions for burning DVD's to be used for restoring the laptop to as released from factory settings I have successfully burned all three DVD's from the Recovery partition and since this is my last option and there is some uncertainty about whether or not I have the correct Windows Key I hesitate to proceed with this option because if I am asked to key in the Windows Key and it is not correct accepted I am in a worse position than I am was before I attempted recovery I can't find any references to exactly what happens using these reovery disks so I am uncertain if I'm going to encounter the potential for the Product key barrier So it all comes down to one question If I use these Recovery DVD's is the Windows registration key included already so I can restore to as new without hiccups If the Windows Key is stored in the recovery disks I can proceed and all will be well but if not I will be stuck

A:about Recovery Partition/Recovery methods - Windows 7

The site that you inputted your key does not accept OEM keys. Right click Computer > Properties. At the bottom of the page you will see your PID. If it has OEM in the PID then you cannot download an iso from Microsoft's site. You can input your key into the Ultimate PID checker and it will tell you the key is Valid.
 
If you created DVD's using lenovo's utility then you should not need to enter any key. It will be pre-activated.
 
When it asks you to login does it have a user and password box? Can you post a screen shot of the window?

A:[G510] Recovery partition deleted and no Recovery ...

hi izadfard
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
If you didn't create a recovery drive (using this method) then I recommend you contact lenovo on how to obtain a copy of the recovery disc which restores the preloaded Win8 OS, drivers, and apps.
 
Alternatively, if the machine came preloaded Windows 8 or Windows 8.1, you can try the following:
 
For Windows 8:
1. Obtain a Windows 8 installation disc and use it to reinstall Windows (if the system is preloaded with Windows 8, the installation will automatically detect the Win8 product key in the UEFI Firmware / BIOS and will automatically activate Windows).
2. From here, you can obtain the drivers from the G510 drivers page and/or upgrade to Windows 8.1 via the Windows Store (see this guide)
 
For Windows 8.1:
1. Check this guide on how to obtain a Windows 8.1 ISO (see Option One)
2. When finished, follow this guide to make a bootable UEFI Win8.1 installer via DVD or USB flashdrive and use it to install Windows (the installation should be able to detect the Windows 8.1 product key in the UEFI firmware that will let you activate Windows).
3. If successful, obtain the drivers from the G510 drivers page

If you have a recovery drive - that includes the recovery partition - made on one computer, but have a toshiba laptop with a bad drive (but the recovery partition is ok), can you replace/copy the partition on the recovery drive with the recovery partition from the bad laptop HD?

My friend's laptop would not boot, and would not factory recover, reset, or refresh. I tried to clone the hard drive before I started messing with the disc. It would not clone, but I was able to copy the recovery partition to a USB drive.

He never make recovery discs, so could not re-install, but I can borrow the recovery drive that my aunt made for her laptop.

A:replace recovery partition in recovery drive?

There may be a couple problems with that. The Factory Image is too large to be just copied to a Fat32 partition, so it has to be divided in sections. You could do that using DISM and put the .swm files in the sources folder. Not even a guess as to whether it would work.

There is other information concerning the configuration of the computer making the recovery drive. If it was made on a different computer, that info would probably be incorrect and not allow a reset.

I have never tried, but you might be able to copy the Factory image to a drive formatted as NTFS and then set the recovery to look for that file for a reset. Maybe you have already copied the entire recovery partition...

If you assume the factory image is the same for both systems, can you copy the entire Recovery Image partition from the bad drive to the good drive?

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:
(A) CREATE A "BIOS_MBR TYPE" PARTITION STRUCTURE
(B) CREATE A "UEFI_GPT TYPE" PARTITION STRUCTURE
(C) CAPTURE AND CREATE A "BIOS_MBR TYPE" RECOVERY
(D) CAPTURE AND CREATE A "UEFI TYPE" RECOVERY
(I) INSTALL MICROSOFT WINDOWS FROM THIS USB DRIVE
(X) QUIT THIS PROGRAM

Does anyone know how to create an ISO from a recovery partition? I'm looking to create a bootable flash drive to install XP on my ASUS 1005HA. (I have Windows 7 starter, but I don't want to pay the 80 bones to upgrade to the full version.) I also have an ASUS 1000HA with XP--and the corresponding recovery partition--that I'd like to use to put XP on the new netbook. Unfortunately, I don't have a USB optical drive (I'm cheap--sue me) and so I need to use the bootable flash drive.

Long story short, I know how to make the bootable flash, but I need an XP recovery ISO to load onto it to allow me to install the OS. Anybody know how I can make one from the recovery partitions?

Hi

I earlier wanted to format my Lenovo laptop (with vista home basic SP1) but then dropped the idea when i found out i had not received the vista OS disc with the laptop.

Now i discovered tht a recovery cud be made from my computer itself through the recovery partition, but when i checked, the recovery partition SCREAMS THAT ITS 100% FREE! , although I have never formatted it since i bought it!
It was my understanding that a recovery is pre-installed...

Now i need to know if a recovery is still possible....!

As a bonus, my DVD optical drive is also not working!

Please help!

Thanks in advance!

A:Is recovery possible if recovery partition says its 100% free?

Welcome
I would not be concerned, the partition is not the way to go, anyway. If you use the partition you must upadate, install software, change settings etc. Why not use the free Macrium Reflect, put an image on your hard drive (upadate once a month). When disaster comes use the image to reinstall. Hey its free and you do not have to worry about reinstalling software etc.
http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.aspx
For the record the partion should really be there. You could donwload the free windirstat and see just what is on that hard drive.

For the record the partition is probably there, but they usually hide it. In that case Windirstat may not be of benefit, either.

EDIT: In addition, if you put the image on your external hard drive (as you should) you have protection even if the HD fails.

Hi everybody I have HP or Disks Partition Recovery Recovery Desktop with Windows Home Recovery Disks or Recovery Partition Premium When I was using Vista there was a difference between using recovery partition on the hard drive to restore Windows and Recovery disks that you create yourself The Recovery Partition one would only restore your computer to it's shipping condition - meaning that if I had partitioned the drive and had Windows partition separately Recovery Disks or Recovery Partition from my other files it will Recovery Disks or Recovery Partition erase all of it and get rid of that new partition of mine along with all my files If I used the disks - it will give me an option of shipping condition OR just to reinstall Windows partition of my drive so all other files are not erased In Windows the created disks give me only one choice - Factory System Reset Does it mean that it will erase it ALL or just the Windows partition I really don't want to back up GB of my data just need the Windows partition erased and reinstalled Will Recovery Disks do that or is there any other option for doing it with Windows

A:Recovery Disks or Recovery Partition

I would not run the Recovery Disks without backing up data. It doesn't sound like they will let you choose where to install Win7.

You can always borrow or locate a clean retail copy of your version Win7 to clean install with Product Key on your COA sticker on machine. Many tech enthusiasts do this to avoid the bloatware and useless factory utilities. Let us know if you want more information on this.

You can also make your own Win7 Backup image saved externally so you never have to reinstall or recover again, just reimage from the saved file. Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

Hi
As the topic says; after installation of a fresh copy from the original disc win7, my second partition "D" has been renamed itself to the Recovery Partition. You can see it only in the application "Disk Management". I do not have access into it at all. When I click the right mouse button ?help? option appears only . There are very important files to me.
I tried to use EASEUS Partition Master but I'm afraid of losing data.
Please help.

A:[SOLVED] After win7 install, 2nd partition has renamed itself to Recovery Partition

Have you taken the install disc out ? Sounds dumb but the d: partition is generally a reserved partition and indicates your CD-ROM drive, to me it looks like your install disc, the file system is UDF which is universal disc format, you have two recovery partitions on top. Remove the disk, reboot. Then choose a different letter other than D for your recovery partition.. Best to start with z

The fact that the file encryption is UDF, you will not have the ability to modify it, its not NTFS, FAT or FAT32.

currently I am using vista ultimate. I have only one partition (C:)

I think the easiest way to accomplish that is to shrink your C: partition. That will create unallocated space. And the unallocated space can be used to create a new partition.

If you did not make the factory recovery discs during the initial setup of you laptop, your only recourse at this time is to order them from the manufacturer. You have no other options available at this time to recover your laptop to "factory status."

A:A Partition Overlaps System Recovery partition

Since this is an HP specific recovery partition, I really would suggest contacting HP Technical Support as they may have better information for you.I would suggest using their online chat since it is usually faster and they are more willing to help even out of warranty (in my experience)However if they refuse to help you out of warranty. (assuming it is out of warranty)My following suggestions are assuming that you have proper HP restore media (cd/dvd) in their entirety in proper format and are not scratched or damaged.Sometimes if the recovery partition of your hard drive is damaged, even doing a recovery using the cd/dvd is not going to re-write the recovery partition, it will only reformat and recover the main user parition.For that reason what I really would suggest is to backup your files, and reformat your hard drive from another computer. Then use the restore cd's to re-write the partitions on the drive.

Hello-

New to the site, a little slow on computer knowledge and ill face it, I AM COMPLETELY INCOMPETENT WITH A PC. So, with that said...

I deleted my Recovery Manager feature off of Windows 7, wondering if it possible to recover? I wanted to restore back to factory settings but it fails every time, pretty sure it is due to the recovery manager being missing. Tried the F11 option also, still no hope. After hours of searching I now realize that it cannot just be added like a regular application but is there any possible way? I ordered the HP Recovery Disc hoping it holds an answer but I'm kinda in a time crunch. Any alternatives?

Even thought about upgrading Windows 7 but I'm guessing it wouldn't upgrade what isn't already there, correct?

Too many computer manufacturers don't furnish a Vista installation DVD with their pcs that are pre-installed with Vista. Often they only have a hidden recovery partition that you can access to take back your pc to its original factory installation state! (Thus you lose your data and all installed applications, setting changes, etc.)
If you don't have an installation DVD, then you cannot reinstall Vista without using this recovery partition, and you cannot access the new Vista Recovery Environment, which is what corresponds to XP's Recovery Console. So, if you don't have a Vista installation DVD, what do you do in order to access the Vista Recovery Environment, at least? You go to this site and download the makings for a recovery disk:
Windows Vista Recovery Disc Download &#x2014; The NeoSmart Files


As far as formatting your hard disk, you can boot from the sytem recovery disk you download from the URL above, then go to the Command Prompt section of the Recovery Environment, then use the FORMAT command to format, as explained in this tutorial:

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?

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.

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.

HP's recovery DVDs will not perform a Repair Install ...
It's also a good idea to make a Repair CD ...

After You remove the recovery partition .. W7 can resize the system partition to fill in the unused space ..
W7 can Extend or Shrink a partition.

Any partition resizing can be risky .. Make sure you have your data backed up.

I'm not sure about W7 .. but it used to be that if you removed the recovery partition ..
Then tried to use it to recover a HP supplied application ... it would know that the recovery partition was missing .. and ask for the recovery DVDs

Hello, Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum. If the computer arrived with Windows preinstalled and if you did not attemp to manually remove HP Recovery manager software then it should be there. You can click on the Start button of Windows and type its name to search for it. If you would like to perform system recovery, here are the official instructions >> http://support.hp.com/bg-en/document/c04758961#AbT0 If you simply want to create recovery media, here are the official instructions >> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03481733  (even though it states Win 8, it will work for Win 10, as well.)  Please, let me know if this works for you.

I have pressed F11 key on startup and searched recovery manager on the search but hp recovery manager didnt come. Can anyone tell me what to do ?

A:where is recovery manager?

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 >> http://support.hp.com/bg-en/document/c04758961  (Win 10)>> http://support.hp.com/bg-en/document/c03489643  (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.

I got something buggy on my laptop, and i want to recover my laptop to the first time i got the pc. And when i downloading the recovery manager i got a message : This softpaq wil nott be installed on this pc beacuse HP Recovery Manager cannot be found in this system. Any help ?

A:HP Recovery Manager

Your specs say, HP PC with Windows 8 x86, therefore not Pre-installed, HP Recovery Manager would only work on the old OS & not on the upgraded OS.

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.

Backup your files, shut off the PC, turn power on again and keep tapping F11. That will get you to the reinstallation wizard - follow the prompts.

Getting error code FFFFFF15 then i click on ok and come up with error code=45D can anyone tell me if this is a motherboard problem and will it be easier for me to buy a new laptop or to get it fixed

A:Hp recovery manager

Please explain in more detail what you are attempting to do when you see the error code.  Are you trying to perform an HP  recovery for the notebook from the onboard HP Recovery Manager? Did you create USB or DVD recovery media? You can boot to recovery media to invoke the HP Recovery Manager and perform a recovery.

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.

I want to restore my G60 to factory settings. It came preinstalled with Vista. Not sure if its 32 or 64 bit. When I enter the recovery manager, the directions state to make sure the wireless connection is enabled. The computer button is red indicating the wireless connection is turned off. 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. Thank you.
