A friend has given me her HP Pavillion 533W machine to try and fix. I thought I would try the RECOVERY option before I went ahead and did a reformat. Everything seemed to be going great when I stuck the first CD in for the recovery. It went through everything and then brought me to the Windows setup screens where you agree to the license agreements, set your time zone, etc. I went through that and then when it tells me I am done and I click FINISH, the screen HANGS there. It does NOTHING except sit there with an hourglass.


UGH! What is going on? Is there a way to "fix" this hanging or do I really have to reformat it? I don't want to reformat it....that is just a lot of extra stuff I really don't have the time for, if I can help it.

Thanks for any insight!
