Windows 7: Netbook restore

12 Nov 2010   #1

Netbook restore

I bought a new HP mini notebook. it's great.
I made a backup of the hp recovery using the windows 7 tools and placed the backup on an external drive.

I repartitioned the netbook drive in anticipation of ubuntu 10.10. But it's been a real let-down, the new interface stinks.

so how do i create a 'bootable recovery usb drive' for the netbook on my windows 7 desktop computer where I am able to access the external drive which has the recovery partition backup file?
