How to create a recovery disk?

My new PC came with Windows Vista Home Premium preloaded - but without any
media at all, not even recovery disks in the event of a crash.

Does Vista have a way for me to create some kind of recovery disk, so that I
can re-load Windows in the event of a hard drive crash, which requires me to
either format the drive or replace it completely?

What is the best way to achieve this?

Check with your manufacturer - most major brands put the recovery data on a
partition of your hard drive, and provide a means to make a CD/DVD set from
that.

Maybe there is a recovery partition on the hard disk? Not much help
if the HD fails of course. OEM Vista Home Premium install disks are
fairly cheap though, and that avoids the rubbish most suppliers load
their systems with (Dell is one of the worst!)

This is for an HP PC; the process for your PC is probably similar. Check
your user guide.
