Recovery from HP Recovery Partition Question

Hello all,

I'm looking to use the HP Recovery partition on an old computer to reset the computer back to what it once was when it was purchased. I can't seem to find information however regarding what happens after I use the partition. I assume the recovery partition gets everything back to how it was but will I need the Product Key for windows XP when it is done or should it all work without any problems?

Thanks in advance,

  1. It should have the product key embedded in the recovery partition, but make sure you install ALL updates before you go anywhere other than the Windows Update site. . .
