  1. F11 HP Recovery Manager not working. How to restore ?


    I bought a HP laptop which came with Win 10 Home. Due to some reasons, I downgraded to 8.1 by clean install. Now i want to do factory reset to win 10 But i realised that my F11 hp recovery manager is no longer working.The recovery partitions are hidden and but the files are still there. My hard drive has GPT partition system, so I'm not able to set the recovery partitions active. Using some tool, i made a backup of files in the recovery partition. Is it possible to create any bootable usb recovery disk using the files from recovery partition or even make the f11 work again and restore my laptop to win 10.

    I was able to assign these recovery partitions letters temporarily using diskpart.

    I also tried to extract the install.swm files in the preload folder using 7zip. Is it possible to restore by cloning these files to primary bootable partition?

    Disk Management console view is not up-to-date

    Thank you Abdul_Malik for helping me out! Please, tell me, which screenshot you think is right. If the second screenshot (Disk Management) is right, RECOVERY partitions are empty, storage space is 100% free, but if the first screenshot (Devices and Drives)
    is correct, RECOVERY is OK? I am really confused. Can you tell me, please, how to 100% tell (TEST) that RECOVERY is OK and working. I have HP laptop and if I press F11 repeatedly at startup, according to HP instructions, I can definitely enter in-to RECOVERY
    environment. If this is true and RECOVERY is working, then second screenshot (Disk Management) is not showing correct partition values? Or maybe this "100% free space" is showing because RECOVERY partitions are not using NTFS file system, they are probably
    using FAT?

    blue screen saying Your pc did not start correctly

    Yeah sorry, i've fixed the problem already and nothing anyone has said to me worked but this. I went into the uefi settings and pressed f11 for hp recovery options, then did a minimized image recovery, it deleted every file and replaced all the drivers.
    Seems to be working just fine now, seems like hp know how to fix their computers better than the software windows has preloaded.

    Hi guruprasath. Welcome to the TenForums @guruprasath

    If you follow this tutorial it will lead you through a clean install and how to make a bootable USB key with the latest Windows 10.

    Clean Install Windows 10

    If you have your data off you can delete existing partitions and Windows will create what it needs. Also recommend that when you are installing Windows disconnect the other storage devices.

    This clean install leaves out the HP stuff, you can likely get at their site.

    Welcome to TenForums @guruprasath

    Yes, you can. Whether it will do the job as you expect is something I can't say, but if you want to try you first need to prepare a bootable USB drive...

    For the copied USB to be bootable on UEFI and legacy BIOS systems you need to format to FAT32 and mark the partition as active. You can prepare a USB in this way by using DISKPART from an elevated command prompt. Make very sure that in DISKPART you select the correct disk before proceeding further. In this example Disk 1 is an 8GB USB drive. Your USB may appear as another disk number, use the LIST DISK command first to find out.

    Code: C:\WINDOWS\system32> DISKPART Microsoft DiskPart version 10.0.15063.0 Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation. DISKPART> LIST DISK Disk ### Status Size Free Dyn Gpt -------- ------------- ------- ------- --- --- Disk 0 Online 465 GB 0 B Disk 1 Online 7638 MB 0 B DISKPART> SELECT DISK 1 Disk 1 is now the selected disk. DISKPART> CLEAN DiskPart succeeded in cleaning the disk. DISKPART> CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY DiskPart succeeded in creating the specified partition. DISKPART> SELECT PARTITION 1 Partition 1 is now the selected partition. DISKPART> FORMAT FS=FAT32 QUICK DiskPart successfully formatted the volume. DISKPART> ACTIVE DiskPart marked the current partition as active. DISKPART>[/quote] Now just copy all the files and folders to your newly formatted USB.

    1) create a brand new restore point
    2) create a backup image using Macrium:
    Macrium Software | Your Image is Everything
    3) And save the Macrium image on another drive.
    4) backup your files to another drive or to the cloud.

    Now you have a few backup options.


    There should be several methods to get windows 10 version 1703 installed.
    In addition to the methods above see these links for the free upgrade:

    Here's how you can still get a free Windows 10 upgrade | ZDNet
    Is Microsoft Still Secretly Running Offer? Windows 7 Copy Still Upgradeable

    If you have your files backed up the best option is a clean install:
    Clean Install Windows 10 Windows 10 Installation Upgrade Tutorials

    Another option that you may be able to perform is an in place upgrade repair:
    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade Windows 10 Installation Upgrade Tutorials
    If this is successful please post that information into the thread.

  7. Hello everyone.
    I had the same problem, F11 not working, although in my case it was after I replaced the hdd for an ssd (smaller size) on the notebook. I think I tried everything, to no avail. Finally what worked was the most elemental thing: to use the recovery media I made when I purchased the notebook (4 DVDs) and to reinstall to factory defaults. A miracle cure.
