This document pertains to HP computers with Windows 7.
Performing a full system recovery takes time (two hours or more, depending on the method you use) and transfers a large amount of data. With so much data to move, problems can sometimes occur. Use this document to resolve recovery issues in Windows 7.
caution:A system recovery completely erases all files, programs, and saved work on the hard drive. Always back up important information before attempting a recovery.
caution:If additional hard drives are connected to the computer, for example an HP Media Drive, disconnect the data and power cables from the back of the extra drive before performing a system recovery. This prevents possible data loss on the additional drive.
