 You can go to another Windows 7 computer with either 32 or 64 bit Windows 7 matching yours and create a repair disc.  Click Start -> Control Panel -> Backup and restore -> Create system repair disc.  Insert a blank CD-R and it will make it.  Then take the disc to your computer and boot from it.  Let it attempt the repair & hope for the best.

 

 If the above doesn't work, you can download a Windows 7 installation disc image from here

 I have to ask though.  How did your son manage to reset to factory specs without any discs?


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

I guess that I'm not understanding the goal or the intent here.  If someone reset the system to factory defaults...and that reset mechanism did not work properly...is that your situation?

 

Specific model of HP system?

 

The obvious answer to overcoming it would be to contact HP re recovery disks for said system....or, assuming that this isn't the first time such ever happened...do a search on the HP website/forums.
