Hewlett - Packard / Hp Pavillion A6000n Pc Desktop / no recovery discs!

1 United States Review updated:

The a6000n is the second hp computer I've owned. Both of which came with no recovery discs. As advised in the hp computer manual, I created the discs myself (using 2 dvd discs). When my system crashed I was glad to have them, or so I thought. The first disc booted up fine. But the second one could not be read. Both discs were brand new with no scratches. So I'm sending this out as a warning to anyone thinking about purchasing an HP computer. If your brand new system crashes you might be screwed, despite your best efforts. And to HP, if any of you are listening, spend the extra dollar or two and include recovery discs with your computers. Hell, add the cost to the final selling price. I would've spent another two bucks to prevent me from tearing my hair out trying to restore my system!
