Hi :)
Win7 is about the first time Windows has automatically installed the type of 
"Recovery Partition" that has previously only been found on laptops.  It's a 
cheap way of avoiding giving people a Recovery Cd/Dvd or a LIVE Boot type of 
media that could be used to repair a system.  

I think you are supposed to use that Recovery Partition to generate your own 
Cds/Dvds but not many users even know anything about it let alone how to use it 
(if it ever works).  The brilliant thinking at MS is that if soemone has a 
hard-drive failure or something then they can just boot into the Recovery 
Partition that is on the failed hard-drive.  Grrrrr

Tom :)
