    You will need an external DVD drive. You don't need one that writes, just one that reads. Plop in the DVD and it should guide you. I haven't used it but based on other recovery disks I would assume it will allow you to wipe your disk drive and may require you to wipe your disk drive so back up any files you have first.

    Does anybody know the name and directory location of the 'HP User Guides'? The HP Support Assistant indicates that it could not find them after I did a complete recovery! Everything else works like a charm!
    Thanks!

    Thank you but I already have that! I'm trying to restore them on the Slate itself. If you click 'HP Support Assistant' and next click on 'Learn' and next click on 'User Guides' I get a message that it could not find the guides. If I know the source directory on the Slate I can move the file in there. Maybe my explanation failed previously! Thanks.
