Hi,

Can I do a factory reset on a HP laptop after doing a clean install (resetting it back to the original factory settings)?
Clean install removed every HP app from the laptop and changed some settings I didn't want it to (like software license terms user), but the recovery partition is still there, just not associated with the recovery software.

Thank you for the answers!

"Software License Terms User" ?? Please explain.

Not sure why you'd want the HP bloatware back on the thing. If you do, probably just download and install only the stuff you want from the HP download page.
In "winver" the product license under the Microsoft Software License Terms was changed to the new user.
Also the Support part was removed from the About section in System Settings.
