Using a Windows 7 operating system DVD (purchased separately)

If you are unable to boot (start up) your computer and you cannot use the system repair discs you
previously created (select models only), you must purchase a Windows 7 operating system DVD to
reboot the computer and repair the operating system. Be sure that your most recent backup (stored
on discs or on an external drive) is easily accessible. To order a Windows 7 operating system DVD,
go to 

http://www.hp.com/support

, select your country or region, and follow the on-screen instructions.

You can also order the DVD by calling technical support. For contact information, refer to the
Worldwide Telephone numbers booklet included with the computer.

CAUTION:

Using a Windows 7 operating system DVD completely erases hard drive contents and

reformats the hard drive. All files you have created and any software installed on the computer are
permanently removed. When reformatting is complete, the recovery process helps you restore the
operating system, as well as drivers, software, and utilities.

To initiate recovery using a Windows 7 operating system DVD, follow these steps:

NOTE:

This process takes several minutes.

1.

If possible, back up all personal files.

2.

Restart the computer, and then insert the Windows 7 operating system DVD into the optical
drive before the Windows operating system loads.

3.

When prompted, press any keyboard key.

4.

Follow the on-screen instructions.

5.

Click Next.

6.

Select Repair your computer.

7.

Follow the on-screen instructions.
