Default Re: Asking About Recovery

You don't need to use a CD. It just restores files off of the recovery partition that's already on the hard drive. Just MAKE SURE YOU MAKE A BACKUP OF ALL YOUR IMPORTANT DATA. I know you can do this during the recovery process on HP's, but it's best to backup stuff yourself, manually, just in case it happens to miss something by chance. The recovery option creates a clean install, remember.

As long as you have your important data backed up, you should be ready to go.

Well, I'm not really sure on that. Can't remember how long it took for me to do a clean install from recovery partition on a client's Vista machine I had to work on once. I'd say...at least an hour, possibly.
