Can't you just make a recovery disc mate? Most recovery discs configure the hard drive with the recovery partition (and even if not, they will still give you the same ability to recover your OS/system to factory standard).

Recovery discs are worth having, because if your HDD goes down, you can't then use the recovery partition lol.

It wont let me make any more recovery discs, it only lets you make one copy, hp have directed me to a program that lets me copy all the partion on to usb stick.

I have a genuine win 7 32bit, i want to install it and see if it works with my code on laptop, if not i can then use the recovery partion on usb stick to put it back

Can't you install it without touching the recovery partition?

Pretty straightforward tbh, you should be presented with disk options when you use the Windows 7 installer. You can choose the drive you wish to install to, think it may be within an "advanced disk options" tab or similar, but it is certainly there.

I installed Win7 on my M8 on top of my alongside my Vista install and whilst keeping all my media files on the secondary partition using the options, when I transferred my M8's to my new laptop. It also left the original recovery partition from the old laptop intact funnily enough. You simply choose which partition you intend to install to.
