Greetings, Olliedv!

You can look for one on eBay.  I bought one for my Sony, it is a life saver.

Best wishes, war1

I would imagine the manufacturer of the PC (HP) would atleast be able to point you in the right direction, if not provide the disc themselves.

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way to say thank you for being a part of the community.

If your model came with a different OS, probably you will not find this CD. If this came with Windows 98, contact 1-800-474-6836

You can just install an os on it. Without the recovery cd. And get the drivers from HP.
 BTW I have the disks You need.
It is the same set for my pavilion 6355 my kids use.
I don't know how I would get them too you. And of course you would need to use your MS product ID.

SnowguyCommented:
Yes like I said You just need an OS CD to install be it WIN95/98 ME 2Kor XP ect... then you can go here to get the drivers.

Of course you wont get the software that was on it like you would with the restore CD.

I had misplaced my recovery CDs and had to do just that. My pavilion has a clean install of ME on it now.
But I have the disks handy now for the next time the kids wack it out. :>)

I think if you can get a OEM version of 98 your product id should work.

If you don't have the Windows CD, the system files may be in the CABS folder. From a:> type "c:\windows\options\cabs\setup"  or "c:windows\options\cabs\install" without the quotes and hit ENTER.

Best wishes, war1

I would suggest you see if you can beg or borrow one from a friend.
It has to be an OEM version of 98 not 98se
An OEM version is only distributed with a new PC
An upgrade version will not work with your product id.
Do you have your product id?
The number will be in this format i.e....XXXXX-OEM-XXXXXXX-XXXXX where X= your numbers and or letters.
Not sure if it is the same format in the UK.
