In this case, you must use the Recovery Disc Set for the computer. Order the Recovery Disc Set and the drive at the same time so that you can recover the new drive with the pre-installed software when they arrive. The Recovery Disc Set consists of the following set of DVDs to restore the computer to the original factory configuration. Start Recovery Disc (one disc) This disc is used to format the hard disk drive and initiate the recovery process. Operating System Recovery Disc (one or more discs) This disc restores the Microsoft Windows operating system.

Supplemental Recovery Disc This disc contains additional content, such as software for specific models and updates to the software that was preloaded on the computer.

Insert the bootable Start Recovery Disc into the optical drive. 2. Start the computer.

Follow the on-screen instructions to begin the recovery process. 3. Read the license. If you agree with the terms, select I accept these terms and conditions and then click Next. 4. Insert the Operating System Recovery Disc when prompted and click Yes to begin the operating system recovery process. 5.
