Once you reload the disks, you are only at the point of having restored the recovery partition itself. Once that is complete, select F11 at startup, which will boot you into the recovery partition. Select restore to factory contents from there for it to load the OS again.


Can't tell from your post if you reached this point or not, sorry if this is redundant. You might try setting the hard disk drive at the top of the boot order list in the BIOs.
