    HELP! HP Recovery Media Required

    Hi,

    I am looking for HP recovery disks (Windows 7 Pro x86) for the following laptops:

    HP Probook 4525s (P/N XX800EA#ABU)
    HP 630 (P/N A1E13EA#ABU)

    The previous technician at school installed XP and wiped the recovery partition.

    I believe that HP no longer sends out recovery disks but I am hoping someone on here has made a copy and would send or upload somewhere. Happy to pay reasonable costs to receive them.

    Failing that, I will have to install using the COA and download the drivers (I have about 10 of each model to do).

    Thanks,

    Kevin

    think you can order the media off HP for a price if you are genuinely stuck

    Surely it's easier to install from retail/VL media and use something like DriverPack Solution to install the drivers.

    Spoke to HP and they are sending the disks... Despite what I read, they do still send them out.

    Don't think the server will cope with MDT! Need to get the new head to spend some serious money :-)
