HP Probook 450 -recovery disk creator - Error: "Failed to add upgrade"

A couple of days ago I purchased a new HP probook 450 G0. After configuring the Windows 7 wizard, I noticed that the hard disk has 4 primary partition (1GB system partition, the windows partition, recovery partition and HP tools partition).

 

For my work I need a Windows7/ubuntu dual boot so I have to remove 1 primary partition. I decided to make a couple of recovery DVD's and then remove the recovery partition.

 

I opened “HP recovery Disk creator”, choose to make a Windows recovery DVD and clicked the “create” button. After a couple of minutes an error popped up: ‘Failed! Error 0xC0aab120 Failed to add “upgrade”’. I used a 4,7GB lightscribe DVD +R.

 

When I googled the error message, I came across this thread: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Recovery/HP-probook4540S-Windows-7-Pro-x64/td-p/1950029

 

Does somebody have a quick solution to this problem?
