Once you upgrade to Windows 10, chances are that you would not be able to use the original HP recovery partition anyway. For example - how would you propose that you could use it after Windows 10 is installed? The manufacturer's recovery partition typically requires the manufacturer's software to restore the computer from it and especially with a clean install of Windows 10 the manufacturer's software to use the recovery partition will be gone, and probably won't work after an upgrade to Windows 10.
That's true! I But if I made another disc image with Macrium Reflect and stored it on an external drive. Then reinstalled Macrium Reflect after attempting a clean install of Windows 10, would I still be able to use that image to put my system back to its current state (with Windows 10 Upgrade in place)?
