    Default How to burn HP Recovery Disc without using Recovery Manager?

    Hi,

    I just got a HP pavilion 9207us notebook PC.
    I had a problem with using the newly created user id and password to complete the installation of the os, so I had to use the Vista upgrade disc that came with the laptop, to reinstall the whole system. during this time, I forgot to burn the recovery disc. But now I want to burn the recovery disc and the recovery manager is not even there, because it's now a brand new Vista without all the HP stuff.
    I was able the get all the drivers from the HP site, but I wasn't able to get back the Recovery Manager and HP Total Care Advisor.
    I still have the 6GB Recovery Partition in my HDD, inside is a folder called HP_Recovery and a bunch of hidden files, but I don't know what I can do with them.
    So, is there any way that I can burn the recovery disc without the manager?? Can I download the Recovery Manager and the Total Care Advisor?
    I don't want to spend $35 to order the recovery disc from HP.

    I tried pressing F11 during the startup but of no avail.

    I'm still new to HP computers, thanks a lot for helping!

    Kind Regards;

    Ajit Goel

    it should be $19. or you can try to say it should come w/ recovery disks and try to get em free. but theres a special way to burn them w/ using command prompt. but i'm not sure exactly how this works. go to the hp site, and do the live chat thing and ask one of those ppl...that'd be your best bet.

    Did you backup the C:\SWSetup directory? I think its in there with the drivers, HP stuff like recovery manager, and the crapware.

    maybe you can try going into the bios and setting the recovery drive as the first drive in the boot sequence
    DV6500t/T7300/2GB/8400GS/120GB/Win7
    DV5t/T5800/3GB/9400GS/250GB/Win7
