The laptop has a failed HDD or other issue. Not all the DVDs in a recovery set is bootable. In fact in all the recovery sets I've used only one is bootable and the rest contain more stuff.
It says boot device not found. Please install an operating system on your hard disk. (3F0) I had HP send me recovery DVD's, the first DVD boots and installs with no problem but the rest of them say they are not bootable DVD's. I found some recovery DVD's on ebay but I'm not sure which one's to get. can anyone help me so I'm not wasting my time and money?
