I have a problem which needs a clean install but I have an OEM sytem with a hidden recovery partition. I know the procedure to set back to Factory settings but I created a system image (and repair disk) a couple of months ago with most of my installed apps - Can I use the system image recovery and would it overwrite the hidden recovery partition???
The disk management shows the hidden partition to have 17.5G capacity with 17.5G free - does this mean there is no factory recovery on the disk anyway?
Any help much appreciated before I screw it up.
