If you are going to pull that hard drive, you will always have the recovery partition on it. So what`s the point of putting it somewhere else.

Save your favorites by copying the favorites file found here, to a usb drive.

start>computer>C:>users>your account>favorites

They would be your Internet Explorer favorites, not exactly sure about saving your Chrome favorites. Maybe this will help.


Go to : C:\Users\USER\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
where USER is the user name that you are logged in under.

Windows 7 is pretty driver complete. I`ve never had to worry about drivers. Just run windows update and anything it doesn`t find, just go to the hp website. For instance, webcam drivers and software.

But it wouldn`t hurt to back them up.

You can put the recovery partition on the 500 gig hard drive using windows image backup.

start>control panel>backup and restore>create system image

The recovery partition will have to be assigned a letter.

There should be some software on your HP that allows you to make recovery discs. That would be the easiest way.

The recovery partition is on the same drive as windows. Open up disk management and you will see.

You already posted a pic a ways back.

And there it is D:

If you want, copy that and the small tools partition over to the F: drive.

But like I said, what`s the point ? I would see if the software is there to put it on dvds.
