I have no any CD for this laptop but I have HP recovery partition there and I need to install Vista back on main partition. I do not see any option to boot from recovery partition Could anyone please let me know how to do it?
When the HP splash screen appears immediately after you turn on the laptop, press "Esc" to change the boot order. I think there is an option listed in there to boot from the recovery partition.
I have a DV9000, but I think I removed the recovery partition so I'm going by memory.
You can get a restore cd from here:
