    Hi,

    When you hit F12 to format the harddisk choosing dvdrom is the wrong option, as that is just a dvdrom and can not be formated. Instead select HDD or harddisk. Then format that. It should format with no problems.
    Hope this helps.

    Hi

    Put recovery in CD/DVD-rom and switch the unit off. Switch it ON again and immediately keep down C button.

    Does it works on this way?

    if i press F12 and choose hdd it boots from the disk and it doesn't format the disk. Holding C also gets me the same error .

    It is very strange. The last option is to change boot priority and set CD/DVD drive as first boot device. If the message occur again I presume that recovery media is defective.

    Sorry but I donít see other explanation. By the way, did you already try to use some other bootable disc?

    don't mean to sound silly but when you did this you did put the recovery dvd in the cd/dvd drive? didn't you?
