When you purchase any new pc nowadays, it come pre-installed with windows. Apart as being pre-installed, it also has what's called a hidden partition on most makes of computers. What you need to do is burn that copy of ur operating system to 2 x dvd's or approx 7 cd's.

If at any time you need to do a clean install of windows for whatever reason or the hard drive fails, you then have the cd to fall back on.

So i am somewhat confused when ur trying to install the HP Recover manager when it should already be there.

When you buy a HP it gives the Option to Create a Backup to the Hard Drive or DVD backups. You can get at this by tapping F11 as PC is starting. I have a HP one was created to the Hard Drive in a Recovery Partition

when i tap F11 it just starts my windows up

As PC is starting up it should say tap F11 for backup and F10 for BIOS setup

It will go strait to windows if a Backup as not been created when New

What i think has happened here is, then when he tried win 7 he blew away the recovery partition of vista. But it's worth trying for sure.
