    no OS on my restored HDD help


    I have an issue where my computer wasn't running properly,

    I have a HP envy 15-j084ca and i restored back to factory and ended up deleting the boot partition that was "unallocated"

    now when ever I power on the device it give me the "no OS loaded"

    just curious as to if this laptop would be down gradable to windows 7 or if it would just be better to send it BACK to where I got it from and have them take 2 months to re-install windows 8

    Can you run the recovery again?

    Did you create a set of recovery discs when you first got it?
