Hello,
I have a HP/Compaq laptop CQ60 and it came with Windows Vista. I installed Windows XP but, for some reason, it didn't install all of the drivers for the wireless etc. I would like to know if there is a way to boot from the recovery partition and reinstall Vista? I see a few people in other places have had the same problem but I didn't really see if there was a way to fix it with just the recovery partition. I would appreciate any and all help I can get with this matter.

Hi,

Normally, you could come back to Vista. On the boot of your PC, keep pushing F11 when you get HP or Compaq screen. The recovery should begin.
