Original title: WINDOWS 7 recovery error on hp dv4i-2100
I have an hp dv4i-2100 with windows 7 (64bit) OS. The OS & boot are running ok.....
but when I try to recover the OS using recovery partition, I get the following error:
"Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.
the boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible"
On the other hand.....if I try using the recovery disks.....of the various recovery options given only the "factory reset" option works.....for the rest of the options I get the "error:0xe0ef0003"
I tried to figure out where the problem was and I noticed that.....after I do the factory reset....initially the recovery partition on the hard disk works ok....but as soon as I partition my hard drive(using the windows built in utility) the above discribed errors reappear.....
