Only way to get the partition back is reinstalling Vista using the Recovery Disk set.

You will need HP Vista Recovery Disk for dv2900 series...Which should be orderable on driver download page...

Will this also work for an HP dv6646 running Windows Vista Home Premium? I accidentally erased my  recovery partition. This is why I was wondering if a repair disk would help. Will it get the partition that I had before to where I can run a full recovery without a disk? My recovery used to be built in, but now after deleting it, my computer does not work at all. I do not want to keep buying disks when I get a problem. So, will it get my partition back to where I don't need a disk to recover anymore? Please answer my question. Thank You for your time! It is greatly appreciated.

Booting with your HP Recovery Disks will restore the laptop back to factory specs,including the Recovery partition.

So, does that mean I will furthermore be able to run a full system recovery without the disk? Before, it was built in and I did not need a disk.
