Factory Reset HP Notebook

Recommended Posts

Purhonen

I’m donating an HP G60t-200 notebook with Windows 7 (HE) and want to reset it to original factory condition.

HP Support page says do the following to access the Recovery Manager:

 

- Click Start, type recovery in the search field, and select HP Recovery Manager to run recovery from the D drive.

- Turn on the power and press F11 to run recovery without starting Windows (on some models esc key and then F11 key ).

- Insert the customer-created Recovery disc in disc drive and turn the power on to boot from the DVD disc.

- Insert replacement the Recovery disc purchased from HP, and turn the power on to boot from the DVD disc.

 

The Recovery Manager is supposed to look like this:

The problem I have is I can’t get to the Manager.

Also, I do not have any of the discs they mention in the 3rd and 4th steps.

I thought I could simply do a reset using the Recovery partition that came installed in the HD. But how do I access it?

 

Thanks, Steve

I think you are going to need the recovery disks.

If they were never made you might be able to create them now.

Windows 10 style resets are not possible with Windows 7 or Vista.
