when u do a clean instaltion of vista will it wipe my recovery hard drive or recovery partion or what ever it is on a hp

Yes, I think it does. If you upgrade by an upgrade disc either though clean install or normal upgrade of an OEM XP install it in effect goes.

Yes it does.

If you do a upgrade it keeps the files and settings. Mine did:)

yes,just boot from the recovery disks and it puts everything back to factory settings, this is the only way i can get vista off a compaq (hp) pc.
