seems like a good idea download the drivers first of hp and like you say get rid of a lot of hp clutter

Put the Disc you made in the Computer, Start PC and keep tapping F11 to Recover or Tap it when you see the on screen Message. As above all the Drivers and other software that was on the computer when you got it will be Restored. Backup all your Email and docs Photos etc before the above F10 is for BIOS Setup
