    HP doesn't allows more than one copy of recovery disc creation and also you don't get the choice of making ISOs instead of burning to the disc/USB.
    Here are the workaround for this nuisance:

    CREATING MULTIPLE COPIES OF RECOVERY
    If you failed once and HP now shows you this -

    [​IMG]

    * Goto My Computer
    * Click Organize -> Folder Options -> View -> Check "Show Hidden Files" and Uncheck "Hide Extension for Known Files" and "Hide Protected Operating System Files" -> OK
    * Search for RMCStatus.bin
    You'll see two files, delete them.

    [​IMG]

    * Now search fo[FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif]r Rebecca.dat
    Delete.

    [​IMG]

    Open Recovery Manager again and you'll be allowed creation!


    CREATING ISO
    * Download & install Phatom Drive
    Phantom Drive
    * Open Phantom starter -> Settings
    * Uncheck "Reinsert image if ejected" -> OK

    [​IMG]

    * Use Phantom Creator to create a new DVD-R DL virtual disk and save it somewhere

    [​IMG]

    * Open recovery manager and you'll see the option to select the Disk option!
    * After it completes burning to one disc, again create another virtual disc using Phantom Creator -> Rename -> Repeat process.

    Done!

    Huh.. what?
    Nice, but can't you just create a copy of the already created recovery disc. You can also create an ISO from the Burned disc which is a lot more easy.

    For some users the recovery media creation using real disc fails (some error in disc/power failure) and they're unable to create another set so this method is for them. Also burning disc and then creating iso from them is time consuming.
    With this method one can simply backup their recovery in ISO (which is much faster), burn to disc when they actually want to recover and create once again if they somehow loose previous the backup :)
