I have HP Pavilion dv6-2150us laptop. I recently installed Linux on it and now want to go back to Windows 7 (which came pre-installed). In order to take it to the factory default I used my recovery DVD disks. It completes 3 DVD restoration and when I reboot I get following error "restoration incomplete" with three buttons "Save Log", "show error" and "retry".
However, when I click on retry it asks for DVD-1 then ejects it and takes me to the same screen. Save log saves a zip file log on pen drive which is password protected and I cannot open and see it. The show error button does not show any error.
In the past I have restored my system back using these DVDs. I also have an additional set of recovery disks and I have tried using both with same error. I have Acer netbook as well and if I use its recovery disk on HP laptop it restores perfectly but to Acer defaults with Windows starter edition.
How do I restore my HP pavilion back to factory condition?
