Recovery from Hard Drive

Your Advent computer uses the latest recovery system that doesn't require any CDs or DVDs to restore your PC to it's original factory condition.

Due to the nature of the recovery process you should not use FDISK or any other partition management software on your computer. Doing so may destroy your backup and prevent the recovery from functioning correctly.

Restart your computer.

  • Turn on the computer and keep tapping F8 until the advanced options menu is displayed

  • Use the up/down arrow keys on the keyboard to highlight Repair Your Computer and press enter to select it.

  • Choose the appropriate language you wish to install (If available)

  • Once you have chosen your language you will be presented with the available recovery options.
     

  • Microsoft Repair Environment - If Windows 7 is not listed then you cannot repair the OS without doing the full recovery.  After choosing 7 the Microsoft 7 startup repair tool will run and attempt to repair any startup problems you are experiencing.

  • Reinstall Windows - gives you the options available to reinstall 7

  • Advanced Options - this launches the diagnostic centre allowing you to run chkdsk, launch notepad or bring up a command prompt.

  • Exit & restart computer - exactly as the name suggests.

  • To continue with the recovery program you need to choose Reinstall Windows.

  • Warning: All data will be lost

  • On first restart the recovery program spends time detecting the hardware in the computer and generating the necessary hardware id's for licensing purposes.
