    one thing that i just noticed...if you use the recovery discs to restore the machine...your recovery partition will be gone afterwards

    that's odd. I have a tx2000 and ive deleted the recovery partition and rebuilt this machine several times. When I use the recovery discs, it has always brought back the recovery partition

    It wont. I rebuilt mine over the weekend and it just creates a system recovery folder in your C:\ with around 15 WIM image files. The recovery partition is gone for good.

    Sorry for the delayed reply, life hit me head on and I was unable to post. Thanks for the awesome help and suggestions. I will try renaming the files and see how it goes. I'll report back with the results when I can.

    Thanks again everyone!

    i deleted my recoverary partitiaon and used my recovery DVD and it creted the partition first then did the restore via the partition.

    But i lent the same discs to someone elese (with same laptoptop) and their recovery did not create the partition dunno why.

    Btw this was on a tx1000au

    hi drtigerlilly,
    i did what you said. i renamed hpcd.sys and rcboot.sys files found on recovery partition d: however there's no hpcd.sys on my windows/sminst folder. still, i tried running hp recovery disc creation but to no avail.
    my laptop is hp pavilion tx 1000.
    btw, i don't get it why do we need download and install winrar just to rename files? just a little confused here.. thanks

    If your HP Laptop is still within its warranty period HP will send you the recovery CD free of charge for your particular purchase. I found this out when I never burned mine.

    @ koriks re winrar it was what the guy that discovered the hack had mentioned, i just copied & pasted his method.

    Good to know HP will send out the disk.
