I have a laptop HP ProBook 4530s with windows 7, and manufacture created discs: C: ) Local Disk , D : ) HP_RECOVERY
E : ) HP_TOOLS.
I wanted to try the new windows 8, and so I deleted the main drive C : ) and installed at him system Windows 8. After testing Windows 8, I decided that Windows 7 was better after all. At that moment but my problem was, where I'll take ovladave suitable or even necessary the accompanying PROGR, who have been added to Windows since manufacturers such as like: HP QuickWeb, HP ProTools, HP 3D DriveGuard, HP Power Assistant, SRS Premium Sound,. .. All these drivers and programs should, in my HP_RECOVERY in the disk, but do not know how I open it.
So please advice ...
thank you ..

Hello kumarmayuresh. I understand you'd like to recreate your recovery partition.
If you want the actual HP Recovery partition you'll need a set of recovery discs. You can order these directly from HP. The number for US/Canadian customers is 1-800-474-6836. If you're in another part of the world you'll need to visit HP Support Worldwide to get your region's contact information.
RohanJannu's suggestion above will also work but I am unsure how closely this method will resemble the HP Recovery partition in the end.
Have a great day!
