I chatted with hp team about installing windows 7 on my laptop, and they said that all the data and recovery partition will get lost by during this. They suggested me to make recovery discs as i am not able to make them right now.

I want step by step tutorial of formatting my computer and installing windows 7 in this.

Also want to create a recovery partition with some more partitions.

I want to create some more partitions to store my songs and pictures on different partitions. Is it possible to create more partitions using some kind of software's to save a recovery partition also and creating more partitions simultaneously?

I don't want to lose my recovery partition.

Hi Jefferson S,

Thank you for posting your problem. The problem seems  you don't want to lose your recovery partition. In Windows 7 when you installed its operating system to it's own hard drive creates a small separate System partition. On this partition it places the boot system files and access to a complete set of recovery tools, including Startup Repair, System Restore, Complete PC Restore and the Command Prompt. These and more recovery options are available WITHOUT having to insert and boot to a Windows 7 installation DVD.

  • Now to solve your problem, install again the windows 7 and during installation there is a process wherein you are prompt to add additional partition drive thus creating its own recovery partition. Take note that during partitioning all data will be lost if you're going to create another partition.
  • Another one there are software now a days in GUI that will create additional partition of your existing partition. A partition magic will do to solve the problem.
