HP xw4400 Workstation - Restoring the Microsoft Windows XP operating system

Your workstation has a several methods to restore your Windows XP operating system to a near-factory state, or to the state of the system at a predefined snapshot in time. Your system has a recovery partition on the system hard drive that contains software and data required for the restore process as described in the following sections.
The RestorePlus! process
The Window operating system and device drivers (for devices shipped with the system) are reinstalled using this process. Some application software may not be restored using the RestorePlus! process. In this case you must install the application software from the appropriate application CD. The RestorePlus! process can be executed from CD or from the recovery partition contained on your system hard drive.
  caution:
Backup your data before you attempt any operating system restore. All data on the Windows partition will be deleted when you restore using the RestorePlus! process. However, the recovery partition on the system drive and other partitions should not be affected.
Creating a RestorePlus! CD
You can create a set of the CDs from your system if you have a CD burner. When you first boot your system, you will be prompted to make CDs for RestorePlus!, the Windows operating system, and a supplemental HP Backup and Recovery Manager CD. (There may be additional CDs you can create depending on the options you purchased.) You also have the option to move images of the CDs to another location, such as a network share, to be burned to CD at a later time or from another system.
Restoring from RestorePlus! CDs
The RestorePlus! process can be started by booting from the RestorePlus! CD.
Restoring from RestorePlus! on the Recovery Partition
Follow these steps to start the RestorePlus! process from the Emergency Recovery menu:
  1. Boot the workstation.
  2. Press the F11 key when prompted during the boot process to enter the Emergency Recovery menu. The F11 prompt appears briefly during the boot process.
    If you have a recovery partition but the F11 prompt is not visible:
    1. Press F10 to access the setup menu. (Refer to Using the Computer Setup (F10) Utility for details.)
    2. Select Advanced from the drop down menu.
    3. Select Power-On Options.
    4. Ensure that the F11 prompt is set to Displayed.
    5. Ensure that Factory Recovery Boot Support is set to Enabled.
    6. Reboot the workstation and press F11 when prompted.
  3. Select Recover PC’s factory installed operating system, drivers, utilities, and applications from the Emergency Recovery menu.
  note:
Some applications may not be restored using this method.
