    You installed clean Windows OS using Microsoft disk and didn’t create a recovery disk at the beginning?

    Well, bad choice buddy… you should create a recovery disk BEFORE changing any OS.
    The HDD recovery procedure is not accessible now because new windows OS has damage the boot manager.
    In such case just a recovery disk helps…

    Actually, i created a recovery disk buddy...
    But if I remember well, I didn't create it just at the beginning. I thought there was an other possibility, without the disk.
    So, to restore factory configuration, can I do it in two steps : 1) Recovery 2)F8 when the laptop starts ?

    Thanks for the answer.

    Great! You are on the sunny side of the life ;)

    This is no matter. Important is that you could create a recovery disk

    To recover the notebook using Recovery Disk you have to boot from this disk.
    But note!!! The recovery disk will format the whole HDD!!! You will lose everything stored on HDD!!! So back up the date before doing this!
