so, I have no recovery disc...no need, will back up....I do however have a "recovery partition"

can I overwrite this partition with xp?

I'm thinking the partition might have some protections that I might have to overcome?
Hello Perris,

I have had various Desktops/Laptops all with no media, just Recovery Partitions. Some are hidden and can only be seen in Disk Management programs. I have never come across protected partitions from the Manufacturers i have delt with though... I just format and install a fresh version of my OS.

However, you may now prove me wrong!
