Yesterday i burned my recovery discs for win 8,today after running sfc/scannow it said i had corrupted files.So then i ran DISM.exe both parts, and it said it had fixed everything.So then i reran sfc/scannow and it said it found no violations.Does this mean my recovery discs are corrupted too?HP allows only one time burn.Does anyone know if i have to redo my recovery discs.(if i even can)

I would say yes, those files will most likely be corrupted. Since DISM fixed them once, it should fix them again if you ever need to use the discs.

Contact HP and ask them what to do.
See next post by SleepyDude.

I did find this: This is how to make a 2nd set of recovery disks.

You could also contact HP and order a recovery disc.

Hi,

Sorry, I don't agree with Ztruker. The recovery discs are created from a usually hidden partition on the Hard Drive this isn't a backup of the current system state it's a "image" of the system, programs and configuration created by HP with everything exactly like it was on the first time you start the machine.

If the program created the recovery discs successfully they are fine because the program also check if the disc is correctly burned and readable.
