    About 2 weeks ago my computer got a virus and I would up buying a new hard drive and doing a system recovery. 1 week later my computer started freezing up again, so I decided to try and do another system restore.

    I go through all the discs that HP sent me but on the 7th and final disc I get "cannot create user partition, cannot complete system recovery" error. I went to hp.com and found how to fix the error, however when I boot up my computer it automatically enters the system restore screen and asks me to insert the first disc making it impossible to follow HP's instructions.

    Can anyone shed some light on this?

    Thanks in advance
