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.

  1. I’ve just got off the phone and I’ve been quoted 8-10 business days for the disc. No FedEx in the UK perhaps?

  2. Just ordered mine, too. The rep said that both Vista and XP would be in the package. So XP here I come!

  3. Did you get the restore disc overnight because of who you are? Do you expect that anyone who owns a 2133 will get the same service?

    1. I’m pretty sure they have no idea who I am. I’d love to be wrong, but I
      don’t kid myself. I’m pretty sure I read somewhere on the MiniNote user
      forums that someone had exactly the same experience when ordering a Vista
      recovery disc.
