You didn't get your PUPs from there, the links in the article I provided are to Digital River, they've been hosting Microsofts downloads for some time. For all intents and purposes you are getting them straight from Microsoft.

Those recovery partitions, as opposed to an actual recovery DVD, are a way for the PC companies to save $$$$$.......they are a fricken joke.

I made a recovery DVD on new DVD+rw. Guess what.....installed all the data perfectly and the disk comparison that the PC did on the completed DVD's checked out PERFECTLY. So I format my buggy hard drive with the intention of building it with my fresh OS that is now on the DVD's I made. Guess what......the install ran PERFECTLY for about 15 minutes............then, ERROR MESSAGE. Tried cleaning off the disks and attempted to reinstall.....NOPE!
