Vista Home Premium recovery tips:
To repair the recovery partition, I ran Spinrite
and it partially worked but I still did not get a full recovery.

In the HP recovery program there are advanced options
in the system recovery options that allow you to run
a chkdsk-like feature on the recovery partition.
This did not work for me.

However, I learned I can reinstall Vista Home Premium with
An OEM Vista Home Premium disk
using the product key on the machine.
I just have to replace the hard drive.

Guy from the electronics shop down the street
brought me a desktop today from one of his clients.
Computer was not getting any video.
He replaced the motherboard .. still no video.
After troubleshooting.. replaced the processor.
Working fine now.

Vista to XP tip:
If you write the downgrade onto the same partition
that Vista lives on, it will retain the users files.
Slam XP onto the same partition .. nothing lost
.. with a few slide overs.
