Hi all,

Just a quick question.

I have an HP Pavilion media center, which came with recovery discs. 2 years ago, my motherboard died, and I replaced it with a different but similar model, since I couldn't find the same one at the time. I have been made aware that I cannot use my recovery discs with this new motherboard.

If in the future, I acquired the same model motherboard as came with the recovery discs, could I then use the discs again?

i would think yes, but why not contact HP and get it right from the horses mouth.
