    Hi,

    you can create Recovery Disks, then recover your 10Go
    I did it , I now have two Recovery DVD's (Dual Layer), and already used them several time after having reformatted my HDD

    Worth doing it!

    Hello harsha.

    Look in the start menu under HP; just look around in there till you find it; there'll be an option to create a set of recovery discs. Just be sure you get a good copy the first time as you only get one chance to create them.

    Then after you have created the discs; have a look at this tutorial; at the link below to delete the partition.

    harsha, click start then all programs then scroll down to PC help and tools then in there will be Recovery Disc Creation and click on that and follow the directions to make your recovery disc's you will need DVD-R disc's for it to work. Then after making the disc's you can in the same area of the start menu click on Recovery Manager then click on advanced options then a list will come up and dot the last one and it will remove the recovery partition.

    Hello mansrm....

    Thanks, since I installed 64-bit Ultimate and deleted all the HP stuff; I don't have the HP information I used to have for reference and I couldn't remember where it was.

    Hey Ted,

    That's one thing about keeping my HP going cause I always forget stuff and have to actually do what people are asking help for.
