What they're doing will NOT work -- because the recovery partition must be the same exact physical location as it was on the original drive, and if they simply copied the partitions from one disk to another, that is highly unlikely to be the case.

 

You can't save off the HP recovery partition to another drive and then use it later to do recovery.
