You have been smart keeping the Recovery and HP Tools (Diagnostics) partitions Primary so that they will boot if needed.

I don't even know what are they but I think I saw you posted somewhere advise someone not to delete them. because in similar problem, partition problems, some people say that delete those recovery and HP tools, and I wouldn't do that because they seem useful.

The issue is if you want the bootable Recovery and Diagnostics that come with HP.

Some users don't want the bloated HP preinstall at all, so we recommend that they at least make their Recovery disks so they could restore to factory condition to sell the PC or ship it back under warranty. Then they can wipe the HD to start with a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Others want the partitions saved because they're unsure or wish to rely on bootable Recovery as a backup, especially since on newer models HP System Recovery offers a Minimal Recovery option that's close to a Clean Reinstall.
