    If a person with a OEM computer uses the system recovery partition to restore their operating system is a Windows.old file generated?

    As I understand this, using the recovery partition formats the partition. So I'm guessing that a Window.old file would not be created?

    Basically no.
    Windows.old is usually seen after an upgrade.
