    Windows 10 Pro x64 FCU - XP/Vista/Win7/Win8.1 in VM for testing

    It's quite normal these days to see a small boot partition and a larger "data" partition, forming the complete recovery solution, although I can see advantages in a live system for multiple partitions as they are safer against accidental damage during use. I see less need for it in recovery partitions which are rarely used, if ever. They are probably there to allow the manufacturer to "stock" fewer recovery versions (a general install/loader and a bespoke data set for the actual system

    Not The Case With HP Z240 W7/10 Workstations


    For the new replies, my thanks. Unfortunately, my initial fumbles with HP's Z240 Workstation configuration required a reinstallation of W10 over the W10 I initially "installed over" the W7 system I originally ordered (long story). I used HP's thumb drive to install W10 both the first and second times, as there is no partition provided for it. This brings me to where I am today.

    I have some more work to do "packaging my W10 files for backup", but after that I'll ping HP Z240 again to determine what I should do with the "extra" partition I'm still showing.

    Any additional advice would be very appreciated.
