If you install to the <br>HDD and the HP_TOOLS partition is not present, the <br>installer will prompt you to create the HP_TOOLS <br>partition. If you install to a USB drive, the <br>installer will rename the partition on the USB drive <br>to HP_TOOLS. If you use a custom image, you can <br>create the HP_TOOLS partition manually with type <br>FAT32 and make the volume name HP_TOOLS. <br> <br>CAUTION <br>- The HP_TOOLS partition is not protected and can therefore be deleted. <br>- Backing up the computer using the Windows® Vista® Complete PC Backup does not back up the HP_TOOLS partition. <br> <br>For these reasons, HP recommends that you do not place additional data on the HP_TOOLS partition. Because the partition is not backed up, corruption or failure of the partition will result in loss of all data on the partition, plus loss of UEFI functionality. <br> <br>You can find more information on www.hp.com/go/techcenter/startup<BR><BR><BR>
