Recovery Issues

I am a summer student attempting to bring two HP Brio computers back to their original configuration. I am using the recovery CDs. Unfortunately my first attempt at recovery did not go well. All disk and CDrom activity stopped mid recovery and I left it for a while just to be sure. I retried the procedure but failed again. The partitions on the system had been changed from the original configuration so i tried to correct them using the Recovery CD however i am getting an "Invalid drive specification" error when attempting this process. Any help would be greatly appreciated on this issue.

Re: Recovery Issues

This is the message you would get if the disk has not been formatted.

The HP recovery disks which I have used require you to get into the partition menu option two times; once to create the partition, once to format. At least the ePC disks are like that.

Just try to partition you HD from a boot floppy and try your reovery CD again
