    Hello. I just got factory refurbished 1st gen Tm2 off ebay.

    I'm wanting to do a clean install of windows 7 to get rid of all the bloat/crapware.

    Is is possible to do this from the recovery partition alone, without losing it or needing to make recovery disks/pen drive?

    I've read all the clean install stickies I can find, and none mention it, but I thought I read somewhere you could hold down f11 during boot to launch HP's recovery software, and choose minimal install, or something. But I can't find that reference again.
