Luckily I hadn't removed the recovery partition from the hard drive. I was finally able to get it to work after 3 tries. I eventually bought the recovery disks from HP. They worked just fine when my hard drive died, So I agree that making a few sets of recovery disks is not a bad idea, I would just make sure they're stored properly.
