You could try to turn off recovery off, its somewhere in control panel I think ?
If its a pre built it may not have a recovery drive just a recovery partition on your main drive, you could try enlarging it or just deleting it, or you could just repartition the entire drive and reinstall Vista.
Also what are the rest of your specs, just wondering because 80 gigs free seems a bit light.
Freude, schöner Götterfunken Tochter aus Elysium, Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heiligtum! Deine Zauber binden wieder Was die Mode streng geteilt; Alle Menschen werden Brüder, Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.
