It appears that I can't find the Recovery disks for the HP Pavillion a620n. Where would I go to find them? Better yet where can I go to download them. I have the HP Pavillion a620n computer but the owner does not have the Recovery CDs.
I found a way to bring up the Recovery partition (hitting F10) but comes up with the following message:
System Recovery environment is incomplete!
System Recovery Reinstalls the environment.
Then I am left with an OK button. When I click on the OK button I am asked to insert HP system Recovery CD/DVD #1 Now - The very CDs I don't have!!!

Suggestions and or comments are welcome!

Install Windows from a normal Windows Insall CD (the license sticker containing the key should be on the PC) then download and install the drivers from here:

Thanks Brum07 for replying!

I can't see why somewhere on the Internet there isn't a set of these HP recovery disks for older computers out there...
I am sure there are thousands of HP computers out there that don't have their HP recovery disks and no way to recover them as well...

Here is a site that will sell you the HP Recovery disks for your HP and several other manufactures.
http://www.restoredisks.com/findrestoredisk.aspx

I guess this is better than nothing...
