Please do not bump the topic. It will look like someone is helping you already.
Your best bet is to get the recovery discs from HP. There will be a minimal charge. They will be specific to that computer.
Using discs from another HP is not allowed due to the licensing. The OS can only be installed on 1 computer.
Besides, even though you think they are identical, they are not exact. A recovery CD has everything for that unit including drivers that are board specific.
There are ways to get the data off the drive provided that it is not a physical crash.
If it is a physical/ mechanical crash you might get some off. Just depends how bad.
Slave the drive to another computer or put it in a external enclosure.
