Perhaps Mr. Murphy was impatient with you, but he gave you the correct
answer. The message you are getting that you've exceeded the amount of
times you're allowed to create recovery disks (1) is not coming from Vista,
which is your operating system. The message is coming from the HP recovery
program. You are mistaken in your belief that "the recovery limitation has
to do with the licensing agreements...". It does not. The limitation on how
many times you can create recovery disks from the recovery image (1) is
imposed by HP through their disk creation utility. This recovery image was
created by HP to enable you to return your computer to factory condition.
The recovery disk creator is an HP utility that allows you to create
physical restore media from that recovery image.
So the bottom line is that anything to do with the HP recovery image and
creating recovery disks belongs to HP. If you had any difficulty creating
these disks using HP's utility, you need to contact HP. Just in case I
wasn't 100% clear in my response, this issue belongs to HP and has nothing
to do with Microsoft or Vista. You need to contact HP.
Hope that clarified things for you.
