recovery disc states cannot read input/output error


My HP Pavillion laptop crashed and I can not find all of my recovery discs. The computer will not allow me to do an internal recovery so I ordered a recovery download on line and burned to a disc. when I put the disc in the graphics came up and in started in Live-mode but then the error mess came: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/libpci.so.3: cannot read file data: input/output error. The site said it was an ISO file but then it had a program it had me run to change it and burn the disc. I followed the process not sure if I copied files wrong or if this is still a prob with my laptop thanks

You should be able to order recovery disks from HP. They usually cost about $15-$20.

The error is interesting. It looks like it is trying to load a UNIX/Linux file. Did the computer come with Linux installed? The fact that it is doing that suggests that the CD is flawed. Did you use a rewritable CD? You shouldn't.
