My computer has a built in recovery system. Now, when I try to format my computer with the recovery system, it says "Partition cannot be created. System Recovery cannot continue."

If anyone could help me with this it'll be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

If you do not have the System Recovery CDs the first thing I would do it order a set from HP before the stop offering them.
What is the model of you computer?

I have an HP Pavilion 7955 Desktop PC. I tried obtaining a recovery CD but couldn't get one from the customer care page. Apparently, they either ran out or don't have any more copies of recovery disc for my system.

So, I can't do anything about this error message?
"Cannot create partition. System Recovery cannot continue"

The part# for that recovery kit is 5066-0364.
HP no longer supplies them directly, you can probably still find them from 3rd party internet resellers.

Although as old as the computer is you might consider if it's worth putting time into it vs. getting a newer machine.

Myself I would do some tests on the hardware to make sure you don't have a bigger hardware failure before I order any software to fix it. The ultimate boot cd has a bunch of RAM and hard drive tests you could run on it if you choose to try that. http://www.ultimatebootcd.com

If in the US, check with local retailers that also repair computers (BestBuy for example). They may have an older CD set on hand - or may be able to locate one that's similar enough for you to use.
