What happens to my windows recovery 7 (d) when I do a "clean install" to win 8

What happens to my windows recovery 7 (D on my HP Pavilion p6610f PC when I perform a "clean" Windows 8 install?)


"Nothing happens" to the "D:\". "Partition recovery, except if you choose to delete or format during the installation of Windows 8. Note, however, that you will not be able to use the recovery directly from the screen of the BIOS partition / boot and inside Windows 8. Some have been able to 'mark' the 'active' partition and restart that should cause the system run the Recovery Manager. Your best bet is to make sure that you create your HP recovery disks prior to installing Windows 8.

  • Recovery Manager HP dv7-1130el after a clean install of windows 7

    I'll do a clean install of windows 7 32 bit from Vista Home premium 32-bit.

    I would like to know if the Recovery Manager will continue to work, or might have a problem.

    I found on the page of the HP software for windows 7 two patches for update Recovery Manager:

    sp45823.exe who makes an upgrade (but not a clean install) and update generic sp44455.exe.

    This second patch help me avoid problems later with Rec.Man when I do the clean install?

    How should I do?

    Could someone tell me a Board.

    Thanks in advance.

    Make your recovery Vista using Recovery Manager disk before installing 7. then it won't matter to have a functional recovery Manager since it is only to reinstall the original OS and programs. It has no function in windows 7 other than to go back to Vista, which can be done with your if necessary recovery discs.

  • What happens after that Windows XP is no longer supported?

    Dear Sir or Madam:

    After the updates are no longer supported Windows XP security, then is safe to use browsers such as Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome to search for information online, watch videos online, listen to music online and shopping online?

    Please reply back soon.

    Thank you.




    It will benefit only XP until 2014.

    If you continue to use XP, you could do at your own risk.

    There will be no hotfixes, updates to security for the operating system, including MS IE.

    You can still get updates for Mozilla or Google Chrome, but it'll be up to Mozilla or Google.

    Finally, the programs will cease to exist for XP, just as they did to Win Me etc.

  • What happened to the Windows Media Player toolbar?

    I recently downloaded the Windows 7 RC and all my programs and all that work very well, with a few exceptions, but that is because I get all my programs on another partition and another thing is that I didn't see the option to use the windows media player toolbar. In windows XP and Vista, you can set it so that when minimize you WMP, all control buttons appear in the taskbar. Now on Windows 7, it doesn't happen and I don't see an option to do so. I know that you can set it so that there the samll box and it will always stay on top, but which takes place on my monitor. I liked it much better on the task bar. Nobody knows what happened to the toolbar, or is my version of Win7 Glitching?

    -Windows 7 RC Build 7100.

    The tools for Media Player toolbar has been removed because in Windows 7, you can control the media player using Aero Peak of the taskbar. When your mouse on the icon in the taskbar with multimedia and the WMP player narrowed down to the taskbar, the peak flyout box will appear and you can control the media here.

  • What happens to my apple book in aperture when it is no longer supported by apple?

    opening: what happens to my apple photo books I have in the opening, after the opening is no longer supported by apple?

    they already told me that I won't be able to order a book from the opening as of March 31, 2015

    Nothing - support opening was interrupted for more than a year by Apple - nothing has changed as long as you were up-to-date with opening 3.6 and nothing until you do some future OS update (which is totally at your convenience) that will totally break Aperture (and iPhoto)

    And what difference does it make anyway because at the end of this month, you can print is no longer of any printed products of Aperture

    The best plan is to migrate to a new program - Photos is an easy (less capable) solution and there are many others


  • Windows 7 home prem oc so what version windows disk do I need to do a clean install on my computer? If anyone can help

    Hi there on my computer where stickers with the key on it says 'windows 7 home prem oc' so what version of windows don't ask me to install to do a clean install?

    It is possible, that you will probably need to download the drivers from the manufacturer of your Slate PC site for touch input. Windows 7 includes support touch driver, although I don't know how the built in class driver supports the contact devices.

    The copy provided in the links above is one. ISO image, you can download and use to create a bootable USB Flash DRIVE or a bootable DVD.

    I of course recommend that you have a USB keyboard, very convenient to help resettlement.

  • What happens to the extra 12 GB 8 GB memory RAM that I installed Vista Ultimate 32 bit?


    Could you please tell about the question in the topic?

    Thanks in advance


    It's a very simple answer

    a 32-bit windows system cannot use RAM 12GBs

    You can install 4GBs of RAM in a 32-bit operating system; and that's the limit

    Read any article of microsoft relative to your question:


    System memory shown in the system information dialog box in Windows Vista is less than expected if the 4 GB of RAM is installed

    Read the explanation of Microsoft here and on the link above.

    "If a computer has 4 gigabytes (GB) of memory (RAM) installed, system memory shown in the dialog system information in Windows Vista less than you would expect.

    For example, the system information dialog box may report 3 120 megabytes (MB) of memory system on a computer that has 4 GB of installed memory (4 096 MB). "

    to use your full 12GBs RAM that you need a 64-bit operating system

    Limits of memory for Windows versions

  • HP envy 14-2090eo: in what order should drivers installed better when you do the clean install

    Hi HP experts...

    I want to do a clean install of my Windows 7 Home premium 64-bit, and I've always used my recovery disks when it was necessary to format and subsequently updated all the drivers in the support section and drivers HP, but it is a slow process, and I'm not even in what order I should update drivers when it that way or the other , and often a message jumped ud saying ' the driver is not properly installed - try again or the driver is installed correctly. But as mentioned, I want to do a clean install with my Windows 7 Home premium 64-bit disk and would like some experts advise on order in which drivers must be installed. Can anyone help?

    Best regards hpenvy1


    The order generally recognized installation of the driver is:

    1 install the chipset driver and restart.

    2. install the graphics driver and restart.

    3. install the audio driver and restarted.

    4 install the ethernet driver.

    5. install the wireless driver.

    Then you can install a driver you want.

    I also do a practice to update to the latest service pack before installing the drivers, if any.

  • I can't boot from my cd of Windows. I would like to do a clean install.

    Can not do a clean install - Windows CD does not start

    Hey everybody,

    Using XP Pro

    Have a problem and I need/want to do a reinstall of Windows. Everything I read says first boot from the CD. Can't seem to get that to happen.

    CD player works fine. I can launch the Windows CD, but it says I have a newer version installed what is on the CD and won't let me not re-install.

    How can I get to any installation option, with or without formatting and re - install only the operating system or do a full install and re - load HDD to backup data files.

    If I format the drive hard, how will I be able to run the Setup program on the CD, if I can't start from there?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you


    You're welcome Gary and it's easy.

    You are now all set and ready to create your new Windows disk. Good work so far.

    Open NLite. Select your language, and then click Next. On the next window click on 'Browse' and navigate to the folder of Windows Xp that you created on your desktop. Give Nlite a minute to recognize the version of Windows, and then click Next. In the next screen, there will be a list of items, you can choose to customize the disk. At this point, you want to click on Service Pack and Iso Bootable. See screenshot HERE. Note that the small red dots to the left of the elements becomes green when selected. Once you have selected Service Pack and ISO Bootable, click Next. A browser window will open asking you to navigate to the service pack that you downloaded... Just navigate to the service pack and click on 'open '. Now, click Next. You will be asked if you want to start the process. Click Ok. Give Nlite a few minutes to catch up. Once he held you to the final screen.

    When to the final screen make sure you have a blank disc inserted in your CD-ROM. Now, use the drop-down menu to select "Direct Burn". Then click on "burn". See the screenshot HERE. After the burn is finished, restart the computer and boot from the disc. Install Windows.

  • I loaded the preview of Windows 8 developer, how can I do a clean install of Windows 7?

    I was stupid and has not implemented a partition on my HARD drive.  I have to do a clean install of Windows 7, which is not too painful because my computer is new.  But I can't seem to start from the disc.  I changed the order in my BIOS but windows 8 charge even without even giving me a startup disk option.

    Hello JordanLeavitt

    Do not try to boot from the Windows 7 support. Instead of starting the Windows Developer Preview and then put in the disc of Windows 7. Run the Windows 7 Setup program and follow the installation process of Windows. I would like to know if it works for you. Thank you.

    EDIT: You end up with a Window.old folder on your C: drive. It's the Windows Developer Preview. You can delete this folder.
