You know how when you get a new HP computer it has the HP RECOVERY Partition drive on it, well...how do you make it?

I got vista on my pc and the recovery is for xp, so i want to make a vista one as well

Don't believe you can. Not a good idea, anyway, since it can't help if the hard drive dies.

Better to make an image of your whole system and put it on another hard drive or DVD's so you can restore even to a new hard drive.

Commercial Apps:

O&O DiskImage
Acronis True Image Home
Keriver Image
Avanquest Copy Commander
Paragon Drive Backup
NovaBackup
R-Drive Image
Norton Ghost
HDClone Pro or Enterprise
Terabyte Image for Windows
Terabyte Image for DOS (can directly access FAT, FAT32, and NTFS partitions)

i just got a new hp, they have a built in utility, and it seems to work, since i have already had to use it. go to start>all programs>recovery manager> recovery disc creator. that will let you make a set of recovery disc's.

fyi: it will take about 2+ hours.
