    I have a friends HP Pavilion a518x. He needs me to make him a recovery cd and they told him its on the hard drive. How would I go about this?

    The HP website has the instructions:

    Create a set of recovery discs or a recovery DVD

    Some HP and Compaq PCs have recovery CD creator software that can create a recovery CD or DVD set. To determine if the PC has Recovery Creator software installed click Start, All Programs, PC Help & Tools, and look for one of the following:

    HP PC Recovery CD-DVD Creator
    Compaq Recovery CD-DVD Creator

    NOTE: If PC Help & Tools is missing from the Start menu, look for:
    Hewlett Packard
    HP Pavilion PC Tools
    HP PC Recovery CD Creator
    PC Recovery Tools
    Compaq Recovery CD-DVD Creator
