HP Notebook PCs - Recover Windows XP Operating System Using Roxio BackOn Track

This document covers how to recover HP Mini Notebook PCs with Windows XP Operating System by using Roxio BackOn Track functionality.
For mini notebook models shipped with an XP recovery operating system disc see HP Notebook PCs - Reinstalling Windows XP on Mini Notebooks
For non-mini notebooks originally configured with XP or any other operating system, to verify that you are using the proper recovery procedure, see Overview Of Recovering Or Reinstalling The Operating System.
See FAQ On Repairing Or Reinstalling The Operating System for answers to frequently asked questions.
See HP PCs - Looking for Recovery Discs? for replacement media.
Roxio BackOn Track, shipped on some mini notebook models, is a suite of backup and recovery tools which includes the following:
  • Disaster Recovery— Disaster Recovery enables you to back up your entire hard drive, including all of your applications and system preferences to an external USB hard drive. If the hard drive is stolen or if it fails, you can restore your HP Mini back to the exact image that it had when the hard drive failure or theft occurred.
  • File Backup— File Backup is only available if you choose to upgrade to Roxio Creator 2009. If you upgrade, you can use Roxio File Backup to preserve important files—such as digital photos, family videos, key financial records, and other essential documents.
  • Instant Restore— Instant Restore enables you to return the computer to a previous restore point, which resets all of the settings for the operating system to those settings that existed at the time that the restore point was created. None of your personal data files, such as e-mail, documents, or pictures are lost.
To upgrade to Roxio Creator 2009, go to www.roxio.com.
