The partition you highlighted (the 10GB partition) allows you to reset your system to the original factory settings. But be careful with that because it also wipes out all your user data.

You are much better advised to make images - or at least put your own data into a seperate partition.

How do i access this? What about the other recovery? 1.50 GB


So it's okay if i delete both of the Parition? 1.50 gb and 10gb if i have the restore disk/recovery

I am not 100% certain about the little partition. It is NOT advised to delete those partitions. You can never be sure that the CDs really work.

And access to system restore may be F11 - your BIOS splash screen should tell you.

i press F11 it doesnt work but when i always boot up my laptop it says [F2] Bios [F10] something forgot not about recovery or anything. IF I WERE to delete those 2 Parition what will be my consequences?


If the CDs will format like i brought the laptop i can delete those 2 parition when i do clean install of windows ?

By Upgrading Vista to Windows 7, you disabled the F11 Recovery hotkey.
