I have an HP computer too, and I suggest that you don't! This is the recovery partition, so in case your system gets damaged, you can reinstall. Yes, that would mean you have to start from 7 again, but now that you have upgraded, your PC has the digital entitlement so you can reinstall or upgrade again after the offer is over.

Thanks for your reply. I have read much on this and the way you explained it,,,I can completely understand the value of the factory recovery partition.  I had not even considered the possibility of loosing the upgrade to w-10 key. BC saved old Jim again....Thank you very much.....Jim

You won't lose the key. Even if you change the hard disk, etc (unless you change the motherboard). What I was trying to tell you was that you don't have to worry about not being able to install Windows 10 again. You will be able to, and for free because you already did, and it sent to Microsoft a digital entitlement, so that even if you clean install, it will be able to verify the entitlement and allow you to install Windows 10 activated
