I have an Studio 17, which has a secret 15 gigabyte partition with the original Windows 7 recovery image. Is there any way I can convert this into a recovery DVD so that I can delete the partition.

I am trying to install a dual boot of Ubuntu and Windows 7 so I want to back it up.

On my Dell Inspirion 15R SE I have a software called "Dell Backup and Recovery". Here you can select to backup the recovery files to an USB drive. Look if you also have this software installed.
