Windows 7 has its own restore/backup capability. There's no need for a "recovery partition" that depends on OEM software, IMO

More Info.

...Still More :huh:.

ok, so it appears i can create a recovery disk ( bootable is assume?), ill figure that out on the fly i suppose as i don't see and explanation in that article.

BUT id still like to have the recovery image "on board", where in i can use f8 and restore my NEW OS back to a "clean" state.

You can create A restore point that restores it to the previous save point using the Recovery Wizard in the system and on the OEM widows disk.

There is a third party backup program that you can copy the "Image" and load it by using a CD. http://www.todo-backup.com/
