If you want recovery discs for your HP computer, you need to create them yourself. HP includes a recovery partition on each notebook and desktop computer that houses the HP Recovery Manager. The HP Recovery Manager lets you create one set of recovery discs per computer. To ensure that you have a set of recovery discs on hand, it is best to create the recovery discs shortly after getting your computer. You can load the HP Recovery Manager during the boot process.
