    Hi everyone,

    I have a 2 months old HP Pavilion DM1-3014AU running on windows 7 home basic.

    My query is that if i delete the recovery partition, can i get it back if i restore the netbook to factory condition through recovery disks.

    HP's recovery DVDs will not perform a Repair Install ...
    It's also a good idea to make a Repair CD ...

    After You remove the recovery partition .. W7 can resize the system partition to fill in the unused space ..
    W7 can Extend or Shrink a partition.

    Any partition resizing can be risky .. Make sure you have your data backed up.

    I'm not sure about W7 .. but it used to be that if you removed the recovery partition ..
    Then tried to use it to recover a HP supplied application ... it would know that the recovery partition was missing .. and ask for the recovery DVDs
