I think this is how it would work, but yeah, try it out and see how it goes, and hopefully my intuitions are right :)

Maybe pipe some kind of text data to grep? So maybe something like printf "various\ntext to grep here" | grep "text" will produce "text to grep here"

You can just boot from the DVD and avoid using Boot Camp, but make sure you made a separate partition for it first

Yeah I just ended up doing a complete reinstall as the system refused to boot after a few restarts :(. Then again at least UEFI Windows 8 boots in 5s on my ASUS board now! :P

And who knows, maybe HP chose to put their Recovery and TOOLS drive on an extended partition, so the OP can still make more primary partitions :P

Well, the OP can always make extended partitions instead of primary partitions. You're limited to 4 primary partitions, but you can have many logical partitions inside an extended partition

And the MFT is not necessarily at the end of the partition. It's always been near the beginning for me. I've always been able to shrink my drives down to nearly the same size as all my files put together
