    I deleted them after nothing else worked on either recovery discs, system recovery discs that got sent to me by hp, nor the f11. So I thought I'd give it a try. But I kept the recovery partition.

    You could try this, Clean the HD Drive, using Step one in this tutorial:

    system recovery discs that got sent to me by hp
    Than use the HP/Compaq DVD to reinstall.

    I just wanted to apologize, I haven't had any time to reply to this.
    What I ended up doing, was wiping the recovery right of the hard drive, and just put a msdn version of windows 8 i downloaded. and it used my product key. and everything worked like a charm.
    The recovery discs couldnt fix this, always giving me an error before. and HP wanted me to send it away. Thank you everyone for your time and help and effort. I really appreciate it all!

    That's basically what I did on my ASUS laptop. Now you have a nice clean install and only need to install the programs you actually will use. I snagged all the latest drivers too.
