Minimized Image Recovery

I was planning on doing a System Recovery when i saw this new option called "Minimized Image Recovery". My question is what programs/software will i start with when i do it? Will i start with Internet explorer,Norton,etc..? Will this delete my recovery partition?

See this page.



Minimized Image Recovery does the following:

  • Re-installs the original operating system.
  • Re-installs all original hardware drivers.
  • Re-installs HP essential software (i.e., HP Support Assistant, HP Recovery Manager, etc.).
  • Does not install trial applications or trial games.
If there are user-created partitions on the hard drive, the HP Recovery Manager prompts you for permission to remove them or leave them intact.
