Removal

Hp, b4 you start removing programs use msconfig and see what startsup when you reboot! If you have several apps that are in first start it will slow you down. Plus, as you see the programs and try them out you may like them.

XP MCE .... XP Pro 64 .... W7 U x64
 
 

Reinstalling the OS from the HP recovery DVDs .. Or the Recovery Partition ...
Will NOT Void the warranty.

I don't see where you removed the Marketing Bloatware Trials .. Norton and M$ Office.

After you get it cleaned up .. and before you install W7 ...
You might want to Image it to an external HDD

I'm a HP user. I know for a fact that installing a clean OS onto your HP Laptop does NOT void your warranty, even the standard 1 year warranty.

It was sort of suggested to use a clean copy of Windows ... To perform a Bloatless install.
That would Void the warranty...
Like when I upgraded my new Vista computer to XP

I know what was said, I was saying it doesn't void the warranty. I'm positive of that. Maybe it does with Dell or Gateway but not with HP/Compaq.

Since HP couldn't get my Vista working .. They were going to rebate my Vista install ..
But warned me it would Void the warranty without the Original HP OS.

So, I kept the original HDD (OS) ... Just in case.
Same would apply to another copy of Windows (Same Version) ..
Without the HP included Bloat ... Which I have also done.

But we're being picky here ... Time to move on.

I don't know who you talked to, or when, but HP knows I have Windows 7 on my laptop, and Vista was preinstalled.

Back when 7 RC was first out of course they threatend to void my warranty but now that its out and golden.. they wont.

I just don't want people having false information, how long ago did you get your information? :|
