    Just wanted to say thanks to those who have contributed to this discussion. I did the minimal recovery and am happy with the results. All hardware works and the system is really fast. I even used HP Support Assistant :eek:

    I'm trying to resurrect my old DM1z with an SSD, but when making recovery discs the recovery program (very oddly named Rebecca) Makes one DVD DL than spits out a rather stoic box that says nothing other than 'this program has come acrossed an error, please try again'... so I did and pretty much the second time it did the same thing at almost the same (if not the same) spot, at the verify procedure.

    a) ??

    b) I have 2 recovery disc 1 of 3, but I can't get to disc 2 (or 3) just for sake of non-redundancy is there a way to start at disc 2 instead of just wasting another disc 1??

    Are you certain you installed same version of windows as is on the key sticker?
    Does windows reject the key during install, or does it accept it but fail the activation?
    Does activation fail over internet or phone?
