Hi Dirk,

... did HP supply that system with a "recovery partition"... in other words,
is HP shipping that machine with a bootable option to restore the entire
system to "ship" defaults by installing from the recovery partition?
If so, there is a technique (I have used it several times with HP machines)
for repartitioning the drive, installing Suse, and then "recovering" the
original from the recovery partition.
Now for the caveat... I have only done this several times with XP... M$ may
have different rules (behaviors) for the vista preloads. On the other hand
(and a positive note) HP is probably trying to maintain some consistency with
their product line and the HP vista preloads probably work just like the XP
preloads did.

Kind regards,

M Harris <><
