, i've got news for u, i've got the same laptop as u and my recovery partition (D: just over 8 gigs of it) is still there!! I did a clean install using the custom option, the Vista Basic (which i'd upgraded to Vista Ultimate sp2 and activated with Activator v5
) installation was moved to windows.old, in there i copied the program files/sminst folder to win 7 and reinstalled some drivers
and apps that HP had preinstalled, use Restore7.exe and follow the options (no need to restart till u u've installed back all u want). Couldn't find a way to get the HP Games back tho.
