How to format


If you format your system, you'll lose everything on it, and may need to buy a new OS.
You can make recovery disks by booting off the recovery partition; check the options as your machine first boots (look for text telling you to hit F10, Escape, or Delete (sometimes another key) to choose your boot options, and then choose to boot from the recovery partition.

There may also be an option in Windows -- an HP program -- that lets you create recovery media (one time only).
