If you want to back up your personal files, follow these steps to create a backup.

  1. HP Recovery Manager prepares the computer for recovery.
    This process can take as long as 30 to 45 minutes. Do not interrupt HP Recovery Manager during the recovery process.

  2. Recovery Manager reformats the Windows partition and reinstalls the original software. Insert each recovery disc into the CD/DVD when prompted to do so.

  3. When recovery preparation is complete, click Continue to proceed to the installation phase of the recovery process.
    The computer restarts several times during the recovery. This is normal. Do not close, shut down, or disconnect the computer while HP Recovery runs.

  4. Once the setup is complete, turn off the computer, reconnect all devices and cables, and then turn on the computer.
  5. Before using the computer, update and protect your computer by reinstalling any virus and security software that was installed before the system recovery.
  6. Reinstall any software programs that were added after purchasing the computer, as well as any files that were backed up.
