MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit
 
 

vvv211,
Since i have a family member with a HP:
I used diskpart to wipe the disk 100% clean (no more anything from hp)
Installed Windows
Found that Windows drivers worked fine, did not even need to go to HP site and download a single driver.

No HP bloat., no HP partitons, just a clean system.

If you or other people want to be able to revert back the original HP partitions after a clean install, then simply use free Macrium Reflect to image all 4 partitions. Store the images away on an external HDD (or 2).
If you want to say sell the PC in its original condition just reimage back.
