you have created and any software installed on the computer are permanently removed. The

recovery tool reinstalls the operating system and HP programs and drivers that were installed at the
factory. Software not installed at the factory must be reinstalled. Personal files must be restored from
a backup.

Recovery discs have been included for computers that do not have a partition. Use these discs to
recover your operating system and software. To check for the presence of a recovery partition, select
