HP Restore Plus - Restoration Hangs

I've tried restoring my HP/Compag dx2450 (twice) using the "HP Restore Plus" CD that came with it. It does it's thing, re-formats the drive, eventually asks for the "WinXP Pro CD" (that came with it), which all seems to work perfectly. Then it tell me to remove all CDs and it reboots itself. It gets to a "Software Installation" screen (it also says "Software is being installed") and hangs on the progress bar about a quarter of the way across. Anybody run across this? How did you get around it?

Re: HP Restore Plus - Restoration Hangs

The problem you are having is the release of the Restore Disk The version must be 5.8 or higher if it is lower it will just hang.  I spent hours trying to figure this one out.

Re: HP Restore Plus - Restoration Hangs

I can only find the 5.1 restore plus disc. Surely as this came with the PC it should work regardless?

 

Really stuck on this, thanks for any help
