My uncle has a HP Pavilion PC. We tried to restore from the RESTORE Partition, but after almost completing the procedure it hangs in the last step. The harddisk is making a lot of noise, but it doesn't seem to do anything.
I already tried to reset the BIOS to factory settings, based on an HP knowlegde base article, but that doesn't seem to work.
I also can't get into the Safe mode of Windows XP; it says the Setup hasn't completed yet.
