No, the removable hard disk does not have to be empty. It just has to have enough space.

You should be able to trigger the Recovery Partition to run from boot using the F11 key, if the Recovery manager will not work to do so after Anytime Upgrade.

However the best Recovery option for your situation is a backup image made of your upgraded Ultimate install after Upgrade when it is running best. Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

Remember that HP has the worst load of preinstalled factory crapware in the industry, so I'd consider Clean Reinstalling Win7 Home Premium then Anytime Upgrading again if you really need the few extra features in Ultimate.
To be more specific, all I really want is to format my PC, ( I dont want anything from it). Then install a new copy of windows 7. Any simple guides?

These 3 things are all different. You say you want to do all of them.

Format my PC.

Reformat my PC as if I just bought it.

Install a new copy of Windows 7.

Which of those 3 do you want? They are NOT the same.

If you want to restore to the exact condition as PC came from store then Restore the PC to its original condition using the f11 key.

If this fails order Factory Recovery disks from HP Tech Support which will do the same plus reinstall the Recovery Partition so it works correctly. These disks should have been made when the PC was set up, or at latest before you Anytime Upgraded.

If you don't want the preinstalled factory bloatware and useless HP utilities which have much better versions built into Win7, then follow these Clean Reinstall steps to reinstall just the WIn7 OS with a Win7 installer we can help you obtain.

Reformat my PC as if I just bought it, I want the hard disk to be empty, all the programs I installed to be gone.

What?

If you "reformat my PC as if I just bought it", the hard disk will NOT be empty.

When I said empty, I meant like it would say ( You have 430 Gbs free out of 500 Gbs)
