    I knew it would be stupid of me if I did but I still did. In this disc, I see FactoryUpdate folder and the third Data file. So, last DVD CAN'T do it.

    Alright. I'll try and contact HP and see if I can get reason(s) behind poorly created recovery DVD. Thanks.

    When you do a Windows Image backup to DVDs, it has to boot from the last DVD.

    Probably the OEM backup does not have to do that since it knows exactly what needs to be on the backup.
