    Hi, i am in need of recovery discs for my compaq presario windows 7 64bit pc model cq61 406sa, i accidently formatted my recovery partition and cant get it back, i contacted hp they was 32 quid which i aint paying as i paid 40 quid out in extra warrranty and the warranty does not cover these discs, as the recovery manager was on the partition and wont make any discs for me either.

    please advise or locate me in the right direction

    thanks in advance

    i'm not sure about the discs you want, but you can make your own recovery partition using the tools here:

    or
    you can always just make a backup of your system using your favorite backup software (i prefer paragon) and put the image on a hidden/visible partition and never worry about OEM recovery at all...

    if you are just needing to do a reinstall, just get a Windows 7 image from here:

    if you are wanting all the bloatware that comes with compaq/hp machines specifically--good luck finding your disc sources :)

    Check out the Windows Seven Repository. It is a difinitive guide and will tell you all you need to know. I would not waste my time with recovery discs.

    english is the only version on that page i linked you to... you clicked the link that links to china4ever's other languages that does not include english. maybe read a little :p

    go down to the box that says "code" above it
    click "x86 links.txt" for 32 bit
    click "x64 links.txt" for 64 bit

    and you are better off downloading the one i linked to than just plain windows 7 because it already has sp1 with it and it takes up substantially less space than if you go through windows update and let it bring your system up to date and fill the winsxs folder with a bunch of useless files...
