Hey there,

I'm using the system recovery disk for my HP Brio and have discovered
part way through that I don't have the device driver disk the recovery disk
is asking for...if I shut down, and then locate the disk for next reboot, will
I kill this machine?

Maybe scramble data on the drive, but should not hurt the computer itself.
If you have no data/settings you are trying to save, it should be OK to cancel the install and do it again later.

Any way to skip this device, and add it after you finish the install?
