I have a HP Pavilion with a 40gb hard-drive,running Win XP Home HP. Recovery came pre-installed on Drive D as FAT32 and is taking up 4.33 gb, is it possible to burn this recovery to a CD and delete the partition, and use the CD to repair. ( if needed) I also have the Recovery Discs from HP( SET OF 9). Are these discs the same as the recovery partition? and if so, why the heck does HP need to waste MY hard-drive space?
