I’m moving in about two weeks, so I wasn’t sure if I should bother calling HP support and asking for a SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED) recovery disc or if I should wait until after I moved. Ultimately I figured if the disc didn’t show up before the big move, I could always just try again in a few weeks. It turns out I shouldn’t have worried. After spending a few minutes on the phone with HP support yesterday, the company sent out a disc… using FedEx overnight shipping. So today I’m the happy owner of a SLED recovery DVD.
The funny thing is I don’t actually have a USB DVD-ROM drive yet, so I can’t even check to see if the disc works. Hopefully my disc drive will arrive sometime in the next week or two.
