I have an HP Pavilion running Windows Vista Home Premium. The model is a DV6633us.
The hard drive died, and I purchased a new one, and ordered recovery CD's from HP. I installed the HD and when I tried to run the recovery CD's, it tells me it is unable to complete. I get a black screen, tells me to put the recovery CD's into the drive and reboot, it will go through the install again (about 1 hour) and reboots a few times, and back to the black screen. Am I missing something???
Thanks

Here is the support and software update site for the HP Pavilion dv6633us laptop which you should add and save to your browser favorites/bookmarks list so you can refer to it when needed.

It came with the original version of Windows Vista Home Premium(32-bit) pre-installed.

Here is the section on doing a system recovery.

It's possible that HP sent you the wrong recovery kit.
