Some recovery disks are not full disks. They need data on the hard drive. Since we don't know what you have, you will need to contact the OEM for more detailed instructions.

It may be either the disk is wrong or needs data or that there is a hardware issue.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
