I have already removed WIN7 HP_Recovery section, have all updates, clean install planned, have killdisk to remove WIN7, have 2 hard drives and 2 CD/DVD-RW's.

Have more than 430 GB on Drive C:; 45.74 on Drive D: I have a card reader, updating to NERO Multimedia 12 Suite this will leave me with only one item that this Compaq Presario, Model #: CQ5826 will be absent and have WIN7 & 8 updates stored on my flash drive.
