How do I create a recovery partition on an HP EliteBook 2760p using Windows 7 64-bit Professional

I have an HP EliteBook 2760p using Windows 7 - 64-bit Professional

 

My original problem is that I couldn't create the Repair Disc

 

I found out that the problem was with a file that was on the recovery partition

 

I backed up the recovery partition from the same make and model computer

 

I reformatted the partition and recovered the backup to the reformatted partition

 

It didn't work

 

How do I create the recovery partition  I have the 2 disks that came with the tablet PC

If you do a factory restore using HP recovery discs it will put everything back including recovery partition. I don't know if any way to manually re-create the recovery partition.

 

NOTE: back up your files as Factory Restore wipes ALL data.

I have the Operating System DVD Windows 7 Professional and the Application and Driver Recovery DVD

 

Will these do the job in place of recovery disks?

 

Thanks
