Windows 7: Restore HP Laptop to factory settings?

04 May 2013   #11


There's a chance HP Recovery will run once you convert back to Basic using the non-destructive method with Partition Wizard.

If it won't run from within Win7 as shown in your screenshot then try it from boot as shown in HP System Recovery.

Yes, it worked like a charm.

Thanks Greg!

If you ran HP Factory Recovery then I would Clean Up Factory Bloatware
at the minimum.

HP has the worst load of preinstalled crapware and useless duplicate utilities in the industry, which smother Win7 native performance. This is why most tech enthusiasts choose to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

It's okay. I actually use some of their bloatware from time to time.
