Hello Freddy. I am trying to run the restore through the Recovery Manager. System Restore is greyed out
No I'm not on the computer at the minute. I'm on my Desktop. Shall I log in with my Notebook?

No I can't see anymore
Oh yes there is

I had thought that the issue may have been due to settings that I had previously changed but that wasn't the case. I haven't tried anything as of yet
Ok thank you Freddy. My problem with my notebook is a very deep and perplex on I know
Hello Matthew. No Cds or DVDs were shipped with the laptop.
I was thinking the very same myself. The thing is Matthew the laptop is a good number of years old now so I think it is time to buy a newer up-to-date model
I have been researching Knoppix operating system. At this stage what have I to lose?
I am sure I am still going to have fun with this old bird yet
I'm going to have fun regardless anyway Matthew
No that's all for now
I am after installing Ubuntu on my laptop. How can I go back to Windows 7 that was on it previously or is it gone from it forever now?
I had been hoping that I would have had the option of switching between the two but oh well
Is there another way I can re-run the setup of Ubuntu so I can include dual-booting?
If I purchase the original recovery disks from HP will they restore my laptop back to Windows 7 for me or am I stuck with Ubuntu now forever?
How can I do that if I have already inserted the iso disk for ibuntu?
Can I not just wipe everything and reinstall windows like it was before I installed Ubuntu on it?
No I think I will purchase them from HP directly
Will thet automatically delete all traces of Ubuntu from my laptop?
Will this include the all important product key?
No I don't have it yet. I am only after ordering it a few minutes ago HP's website
Oh yes I see that but it is faded on my laptop
I see the serial key now. I was starting to worry there
Can I go online to the HP websiteif I am having any trouble putting it on?
Well I do own the laptop so they should be able to reissue me with a key if I need a new one
I hope not.
