I want those gb to instal linux (wubi is not an option), there is no problem with a direct erase of that partition?
because i see some machines (don't remember if was an HP specifically) that when the recovery partition is lost (or when another OS is instaled) a verification check appears and later windows don't start (and reinstalling the actual windows not's an option right now)

I have removed the recovery partitions from time to time on all of my HP business desktops and notebooks, and never had an issue.
I do suggest you contact HP and get a set of recovery disks for your notebook.
