    8.26 GB of my laptop hard drive came partitioned with the xp reinstall stuff.
    i only have 4.7 GB discs...can i use 2 discs to burn ^ onto them, and then use both discs for my system redo ?

    Why not just use the partition to reinstall?

    i wasn't aware you could...
    plus, i'd like that 10 GB back, and i want the reinstall on disc(s).
    can the almost 9 GB reinstall be put onto 2 discs and reinstall properly ?

    Also the HP support site is actually very good and they have a live online chat that has always sorted me out when I had a question.
