Have you checked the recovery partition for the option to make a recovery CD

Usually you only get one chance at this

Have you checked with HP to get the recovery CDs they are sending out to HP owners after a class action suit? My landlady has a HP and was able to get all her CDs.

I have a Dell and one online chat with live help got me all my CDs after asking even though the PC has a Dell utility installed to make backup copies from files installed from Dell.
