|Are you trying to load the Recovery disk set on the original hard drive, or on a different used hard drive, or on a new hard drive ?|
If you're trying to load it on the orginal hard drive, or another used hard drive, the hard drive may be in the process of failing and that may be the reason the Recovery disk set refuses to install.
Check your hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostics.
See the latter part of response 1 in this:
If you don't have a floppy drive, you can get a CD image diagnostic utility from most hard drive manufacturer's web sites, but obviously you would need to make a burned CD, preferably a CD-R for best compatibility, on another computer if you need to.
Seagate's Seatools will test (almost) any brand of hard drive.
Do the long test.
The bootable Dos versions of SeaTools can be used even if Windows is not working properly.
If the hard drive itself tests okay, any data problems found can be fixed, one way or another.
The Recovery disk set must be the correct one, otherwise it will refuse to load on your emachines model.
(If you have changed which mboard your desktop computer has, the Recovery disk set will probably refuse to load on your emachines model, unless it's the same mboard model that has an emachines bios version.)
If you used your emachines Serial number to order the right one here:
Accessory store - Purchase Accessories, eRecovery CD's....
, it should be the correct set.
Check there to see if the listed set matches the one they sent you.
If they sent you the wrong set, or if they sent the right set but you ca't get it to work, contact emachines if you need to
NOTE that the set must be for the same version of the operating system that your model came with, that's shown on the official Microsoft label that's stuck to the outside of the computer case.
