I’m not sure where this belongs. So, Sorry if this isn’t the place.
I own a HP Touchsmart TX2. It came, as you’d expect, with a lot of crap pre-installed on it (I wish they wouldn’t do that).
For peace of mind I’d like to re-install Windows (7) on it and only put on the things I want. I’ve disabled most of the HP stuff from starting up but I’d prefer if the stuff wasn’t installed in the first place.
I’d also want to get rid of the 15gb recovery partition and make use of that space.
Has anyone who owns the same computer done this? I can’t remember if mine came with a seperate copy of the windows 7 disc to re-install it so if it didn’t I guess I’m stuck with using the recovery partition.
(by rights I should be able to get HP to send me a w7 disc as I do legally own the software)
Incedentally - how do you use the recovery partition?
