I have some new Z400 Workstations. They didn't ship with Windows recovery media, unlike my other HP systems at work.
How do I go about creating or obtaining Windows 7 Pro 4-bit recovery media for the Z400 Workstation?

Do they already have the OS pre installed? If you cannot get hold of the media create a ghost image of the machines so in the future when you need to reinstall the OS you have the full system including driver etc..

Yes, the OS is pre-installed. We realize that we may have to make a ghost image.
I would still like a straight answer from HP about this. The confusion for me is due to the fact that my other HP computers, dc8000 CMTs, all shipped with a set of recovery DVDs. These systems arrived last summer.

I would contact HP support for the country you live in at the link below:
If they have a number for business PC's call that number and request a set of recovery disks for your workstation. I would provide a couple serial numbers and order a couple sets so you have more than one.
You will need to provide the model # and serial number. Since you just got them you may not be charged. If they are not in warranty you only pay $10 USD anyway, so there is not a lot of cost involved.
