i recently picked up a used x200 laptop, it had a small hard disk so i upgraded it to a larger one (wd scorpio black 750gb).
since i don't have an ultrabay/dvd drive, i installed windows 7 pro 64 bit via usb stick onto the new drive which works well.
i would like to know if it is possible to install the recovery partition onto this new hdd, i really like the option of being able to do a factory reset that reinstalls windows without the need to toting around a windows 7 usb key in case the system goes down. any help or advice on this would be kindly appreciated (i could not find sources for this anywhere in these forums).
