Can I have Recovery and HP Tools in the same partition?

My HP originally came with 4 partitions. However, I needed one parition to install Ubuntu. Therefore I deleted the HP Tools partition since I backed up the HP Tools files and knew I could get another copy from HP. However, I would like to know if it is possible to add HP Tools to the Recovery partition? If so, how?

 

Extra details:

HP Pavilion dm1

Windows 7

64 bit

 

Thanks in advance!

No it is not possible. Even if you could- adding anything to the Recovery partition can corrupt it and cause Recovery to not function.

Therefore, is there a way for me to have HP Tools available on my computer again, when I already have four partitions? I would also prefer not to have to plug in a USB each time HP Tools is needed.

Burn your Recovery Disc set, or create Recovery on USB Flash drive- then use Recovery partition.

If I create Recovery on a USB and then delete the partition, will I be able to sometime in the future add back the Recovery as a partition if I would like to?

Yes, but not with extra partitions.
