lost functions / programs. upgraded to 7 from vista

Hi

recently went from the pre installed vista on my HP dv6920ea laptop to 7enterprise.

When i put in a cd or usb key there is no autorun box that appears now.

Also ive lost the pre installed cd / dvd burning / copying program. Where might i find that again?

thanks

Jedi Hi and welcome to seven forums

Even if the recovery paprtition is there it contains vista apps that have already been installed. cant just copy from one OS to another. You might want to search in the tutorial section for enabling autorun there must be a tutorial on it. In terms of the burning software its still in there. could you tell us about your system by filling in your system specs (lower left corner) and is the OS 32bit or 64, clean install or upgrade?

so... anyone have any idea how i can get my dvd suite back? ive found out I had Cyberlink DVD suite on there preinstalled and Im guessing the install files are on the recovery partition somewhere. I read you can use the recovery partition to install apps rather than just the who windows suite again. But how do i access it? It used to be F11 on boot but that doesnt work now i have Windows 7

thanks in advance
