    Default create 2nd set of recovery disc ?

    I got my new Hp DV7 machine last week. The first thing I did was create a set of recovery discs.

    Unfortunately, the very first discs has some issues - the surface seems to be scratched and I used dvd+r discs while hp recommends dvd-r.

    Now, I cannot create another set of discs. This is the latest OS from HP and renaming / deleting HPCD.SYS or hpdrcu.prc dont work as I cannot find them even with freecommander. Seems HP has renamed those files ??

    Is there any workaround to make second set of recovery discs ?

    thanks



    thanks.

    thanks.
    Looks as though HP did something to the recovery process. Used to be that they would create files that you could just delete. I agree...there is NOTHING to change. No files created, unless hidden in one of the folders in the partition. However, you cannot access any files in the partition. You may end up having to spring for the recovery set that HP sells,. It really doesn't matter about the + or - R...what matters is that you stay with the same type for all the discs. Thought! Download imgburn from www.imgburn.com and rip the disc images to .iso files very slowly (especially in your case, where you say there are scratches)Create an .iso for each disc and save the .iso files on a drive in case you need more. I did a validation during the creation of the second set of discs, so the images are good...

    I just used Acronis True Image 2011 to compare files in the recovery partition. Search for a file called ReAgent.xml. I backed up my son's Pavillion before I did the recovery disks. This file was NOT in the original image. Recovery Partition\Recovery\system32\ReAgent.xml If you can find a way to delete that...it might be your answer

    Scratch that...it wasn't the solution...

    I tried isobuster and that even could not read the bad sectors. Also, did full system recovery thru F11 but cant create recovery dics anymore.

    But I do have acronis image back up though.

    Give HP a call and tell them the issue with the scratched set of disks you created. It's possible that they might agree to send you the factory Recovery Disks.
    Also you have the option to use Windows 7 Backup to create a System Image and a recovery disk. Of course this could take 10+ single layer disks.

    Found on another forum. Try this at your own risk:

    1. Delete the file RMCStatus.bin (hidden) from two places:
    -c:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\Recovery Manager\
    -The root of a drive d:\ (RECOVERY partition)
    2. Remove Rebecca.dat (also hidden) from C:\Windows\System32\

    O.K.
    I couldn't find rebecca.dat or RMCStatus in C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\Recovery Manager\
    I only deleted RMCStatus.bin The root of a drive d:\ (RECOVERY partition).
    Now I'm creating 2nd set of recovery DVD.

    spoken early. the recovery media creation stop with error at burn stage.
    any work around?

    What's the error? I don't think it has anything to do with deleting the RMCStatus.bin though. Most likely it's a problem with your DVD.
