Having problems with your HP Pavilion 735n PC Desktop ?

Have A HP 735P made recovery disks when computer was new the 1st time booted it up. Installed new hard drive. When I attempt to use the recovery disks I made from this computer I get a messege ''Recovery disks not for this HP model'' These are the correct disks I was instructed to make when I first turned on this computer. Why wouldn't they work?


Answers :

The most likely cause of this, is that the new hard drive is not the same as the orginal. Restore media is setup to install only on OEM. Orginal Equipement. If the new hard drive is larger or smaller then the orginal it will not properly load.

The easiest solution to this is if the new hard drive is larger, use a disk setup utility and create a partition the same size as the old drive.

If your drive was retail the software to do this will have been in the box. If you purchased an oem drive you can download the drive setup tools from the manufacturers site.

The drive setup utility is easy to use. Boot to it and choose setup drive. When selected it then procedes to the screen where you will need to set the size of the partition. 1024MB is 1 GB. This will help you detemine the size of the partition you need to set.

Good luck
