I somehow erased the recovery files on the HD. I have the DVD's and can recover with them but want the recovery partition because it's faster. Just copying them doesn't work. This happened while installing XP Pro on a second drive which also didn't work.

Generally, you'll have to use the recovery CD/DVD's to restore the partition - then you can use it to recovery from (but not all HP's may work this way).

You know, the store pro said that also but when I restored from the DVD everything went well except for the partition recovery. Thanks for the help. Like I said, I can use the DVD but the partition is so much faster and I do have the habit of messing things up on my machines. I got my first one in 1975, the old TRS80. By for now.

Use Dos.
I made a recovery partition on a Sony laptop with a program called NTFS4DOS and XXcopy.
Itís a DOS Boot disk that can read NTFS files. Once you boot with NTFS4DOS copy have to
Use the file XXcopy to copy your DVDís to the Recovery partition. If you do a little reading on XXcopy it can be a powerful tool. I use it to rip DVDís (for backup purpose).
I donít know how your recovery partition works but with Sonyís the partition is non accessible. So I had to use a typical partition.
I had no problems with system recovery using a standard partition.
