Its an important partition, it contains hardware diagnostics, and is used when the bios is flashed (updated), It makes flashing the bios a much safer operation, if you remove the tools partition and attempt flashing the bios it will be done from inside windows which is Very risky business, if bios flash fails it can render the notebook useless and will have to be repaired by HP.

So could you pls help me to solve this?
In New Simple Volume Wizard (Shriking Wizard)
When i click “next” on the last step, it comes out a dialog.
“The operation you selected will convert the selected basic disk(s) to dynamic disk(s). If you convert the disk(s) to dynamic, you will not be able to start installed operating systems from any volume on the disk(s) (except the current boot volume). Are you sure want to continue?”
I was affraid i selected "NO". then the Drive is appeared as UNLOCATED.
I have already made the Recovery Discs also.
Could you please, help me partition the C to another 2 drives for managing my files. Thanks

Hello all as like everyone`s confusion in forums i would want to confirm those who have deleted their HP_TOOLS partition that is it a correct decision to delete it?
I want to create a new drive on my system with more space replacing this HP_TOOLS partition. I am considering to follow dwalkerde steps posted above in same thread. Should I??

Here is what worked for me: I hit Cntrl X on the folder that is date/time stamped from the small partition HP-Tools, pasted it on the network.
I opened Control Panel\System and Security\Backup and Restore, went to schedule task and removed the automatic scheduling of the backup.... so if i want to create a backup, it will be on demand....
this way you don't have a scheduler that wants to keep backing up to a small partition duplicates....

Actually, my fan on my dv6 has actually become quiet. It's amazing, before it used to be loud such as when i opened windows explorer or my computer or played a game, but since the BIOS update, it's silent, i am so happy. !!!!!
