Hi,

You can download the windows 7 Home Premium (x64) version in ISO format from the below link.

http://msft-dnl.digitalrivercontent.net/msvista/pub/X15-65733/X15-65733.iso

Once downloaded you can burn it on a DVD using Nero Burn.

The license key will be on the backside of your laptop so use the key for activating the OS.

Do you see any references to the Recovery Manager from the start menue all programs ?
It is a wizard that will burn 4 or 5 dvd ISO automatically. You just swap out the discs one after the other till it's done.
It was the first thing I did with other new windows 7 x 64
See if this helps

With HP you can always ask for the installation media. They will send it to you for free.
I had a similar thing, just made a phone call and they send me the cd/dvd.

As noted by Sjizzel, you should contact HP and ask for a set of recovery DVD's. They will probably have a modest charge, but the DVD's will come with proper licensing and all the drivers you need.

If you use a retail license, that cost will be in addition to the OEM license you already own, but it should work. The HP Support site for your model will have all the Windows 7 drivers

What is your problem gopalchettri?
Can we help on that?
Have you tried system restore?
Do you have boot ok?
Did you want to wipe this drive?
Have you considered slaving the drive or adding it to another PC via an external enclosure ?
This is a  laptop or desktop

Try this, go to the start menue  on the right>there is the shutdown don't shutdown rather click on the arrow  and log off then log on as the default administrator if it is available then try to use this recovery manager.
It may just be hidden if your not the default administrator on this system

I have windows 7 ultimate bootable dvd disk with license. << . is this a setup disc?
To repair your windows
You set the bios to boot from DVD rom first boot, insert the dvd then  F10 to save and exit
press any key to start setup wait till it loads the devices then select
you will see a list of options startup repair or system image recovery.
try using the startup repair

here are a couple of ways to reach the recovery screen. The easiest will be to tap the F10 key repeatedly when booting the PC. This will take you to a screen to begin the process. Or, once in Windows, you can go to Start>All Programs>HP Tools>HP PC System Recovery.
 Do you need screenshots?
2 choices select either Full page guide with thumbnail images / or Full page guide with Full images

Power off the system
Switch on and continually tap the F11 key.
That should take you straight into recovery mode.

Agree.  In particular, obtaining a set of Recovery DVD's as suggested by myself and others *will* work, so there *is* a solution available.

If gopalchettri does not wish to accept the solutions provided, then the question should be deleted.  ... Thinkpads_User
