I received a new HP Elitebook Folio 9470m with Windows 8 (64-bit) pre-installed recently.
I have a 13Gb HP_Recovery partition which has 2Gb of free space but I would rather that partition was better utilised for my data and documents.
Basically, I want to format the HP_Recovery partition so I can use the 13Gb, but before I do that I want to make sure I have an OS install image that I can use if necessary at a later date.
I have no HP Recovery Manager software installed and there isn't a version for Windows 8 that I could find\download. I couldn't find one for Windows 7 (64-bit) but I'm not even sure that that version would work?
I saw a suggestion that pressing F11 at boot will enter the HP Recovery tool but when I tried this nothing happened.
How can I create a USB Windows 8 (64-bit) install image?
Thanks in advance
