I'm the IT guy here at an Army Camp in Iraq. One of my users juest bought a new HP laptop. I always check new PCs and get the mac address and machine name and their room number. I told him first thing after registering it you need to make recovery disks. So he asked me. It wrote to the first DVD and during verifacation and it comes up with an error at 14%. Same thing on retrying so I quite the process. I Gosted the hard drive for him. Went on line all was good but I had left the DVD in. He takes it to his room and it reboots trying to do a recovery and no go but it did wipe out the c drive. I tried recovery off the partition and it didn't work says no bootmgr. So I just Ghosted the files back on it and it all is there even the bootmgr but it doesn't even try to reboot just the cuser shows up upper left corner. I did order a set of disks from HP for him since I was the one that left the dvd in. Any one has an idea what i'm missing I'd appreciate it . Windows vista premium 32 bit.Almost like it's not a bootable disk.It will take 10 days for the Recovery CDs to get to me just seems there has to be something I'm missing.
