Agreed - very generic. Google searchs on this error have not been very specific.

The recovery is made using an internal cd on my desktop.

it can be a corrupt oS then; try a startup repair, or sfc :

I was thinking that also - will try that later today. Do SFC need to be run a safe boot / command prompt?

yes - but there's nothing in it. what a bummer. Do you happen to know of any third party software that could create a system recovery disk for Win 7?

Since I just purchased from HP their recovery creation CD the other day it presented a different set of problems when trying to upgrade to SP1 after I ran it. I am now trying to resolv that problem and if I can't I'll use th recovery disk I download and create as you suggested. I can't imagine why people get so angry and frustrated with MS. If I have to revert to Plan B as suggested I'll keep you posted.
