    If you formatted the entire HDD, then I think the partitions get wiped too.

    You can order the recovery CDs fromt he manufacturer for a nominal fee. Just give them the serial number of the machine and they will know what to send you.

    if you didn't touch the h: drive then the info should be still there. when you 1st startup the computer, does it give you the option to do f12 to do a system recovery? what is the make & model# of that hp?
