Since this is an HP specific recovery partition, I really would suggest contacting HP Technical Support as they may have better information for you. I would suggest using their online chat since it is usually faster and they are more willing to help even out of warranty (in my experience)
However if they refuse to help you out of warranty. (assuming it is out of warranty)
My following suggestions are assuming that you have proper HP restore media (cd/dvd) in their entirety in proper format and are not scratched or damaged. Sometimes if the recovery partition of your hard drive is damaged, even doing a recovery using the cd/dvd is not going to re-write the recovery partition, it will only reformat and recover the main user parition. For that reason what I really would suggest is to backup your files, and reformat your hard drive from another computer. Then use the restore cd's to re-write the partitions on the drive.
