hi

with most original computers with windows 7
to be able to recover the recovery partition, it will be necessary to install the original version, either with a recovery kit created after the factory start-up, or purchased..
and not all of them allow to recover said partitions
see if this can help, but depending on the computer, the possibilities vary!

I do not have the recovery partition in the drive is there anyway I can download the recovery for this?

I do not have recovery for this.

HP Recommended

no, you need the recovery kit of this model and sometimes the partition is not recreated
If you have a version of windows, and you don't need the original version, you could use free software, which will allow you to clone your player at a desired time.
It seems to me that some people have the possibility of creating a partition type recovery, but I have never tested

no guarantee on my side, but see for example this type of site, where you can get the recovery kit for some models!
