Where can I purchase factory recovery media/download images? p7-1227c
I need the following set for this machine: Windows 7 64 Bit Recovery Kit C4G69AV
When I got this computer, the owner wanted the hard drive and already burned recovery DVDs, with one of the 3 I got with it having a possible burn error - nor can I make another set I trust. As such, I am trying to locate factory recovery DVDs for the machine since the way HP protects against making a 2nd set is well hidden. You can’t find them on eBay either - I checked. I want to bring it back to Windows 7 because I have a 8.1 desktop already and I have some programs that may prefer/require it.
So far I have ordered some from PC Connect Store and my order was cancelled - likely because I ordered something they haven’t stocked in years or have none on hand for now. Next place…
I found a way to order the DVDs from HP with a link from another PC (same set) but I need to change the model out and I can order 1227c media. $45+shipping, so the price is on the high end.
I have found a site with the media but it’s $34 with shipping added on. That’s still a bit too much as a first choice, but it’s a matched model set.
Is there any place I can download media for this machine that’s known to work? The build ID is 12NA1MRW601.
