Hello,
I have recently purchased a brand new laptop (HP Compaq Presario CQ61-100EE). Now I want to create a second set of Recovery DVDs cuz first ones are not working. So can I use this Second Recovery Creating technique For HP Users Only?????? ON my HP Compaq laptop? Oh yeah I have Windows Vista Home Basic On that laptop of Mine....any help will be greatly appreciated.

Try this:

Created your HP restore /recovery discs, and for some reason need to create a second set?

Lost /damaged, etc?

Use windows search
(include hidden files and folders, show known file extensions)

Search for the following file: hpcd.sys

There will be 2 copies,1 in C:\WINDOWS\SMINST and 1 in E:\

Just rename them to .bak and you can use the HP PC Recovery disc creater again.
