how to partition HDD like retail PC's

Like the thread title says, how do I partition the HDD like retail PC's to where that partition has the hidden recovery OS on it. If the big branded companies can do it why can't us little guys.

Hi Jimbo, what's wrong with the answers you already got. Do they not work.

I was just covering all my bases when I posted is one on here posted a reply and the other forum. It like that most of the time on different forums. I'm not one for waiting around is all.

The answers worked just fine.

That is perfectly alright. I was just wondering to what extent the proposed solutions did work. It is an interesting subject. No offense meant.

The partition shouldn't be that big of a deal. Making it functional like the factory one would be a chore. Would making a partition with your system image then hiding it work? Accessing it without a disk might be troublesome.
