Unable to reinstall DVD backups after HP SYSTEM RECOVERY failed
\015 I installed new system board, backed up hard drive and reinstalled vista home premium. I am unable to reinstall my back ups, get a code "purple". After many live chats with HP, I ordered system restore/recovery disks from HP. Tried to load and restore system back to factory condition, you know the one that HP tweeks with Vista home premium preinstalled upon purchase. Well, since I replaced the system board with same make and like model, HP tech support says that I cannot restore system back to factory condition; that the system restore disks I just bought won't work and they don't know how I can reinstall all my DVD's that I backed up with their HP RECOVERY MGR Program. Please HELP!!!\015
Code "purple" means you and your computer are done. It is an unrecoverable error that means you need a new system. However, I have found a couple of postings that claim to know a fix. I can not verify these methods, I do not own a HP or other type of prefab PC (custom is the only way to go). Anyway, here are the links, good luck.
