The recovery disk does it automatically. If you want to just hav eone partition, you need to manually reinstall windows. You need to have a windows reinstallation cd. Boot from it. It will give you an option on how you want the partitions to be created.

For windows xp, you can refer to this link.
For windows vista, click this.

Before using the Recovery Partition, copy your data files (such as Outlook PST files) to USB storage devices or to a network drive and make note of any customized configuration settings (such as network settings).

About the Recovery Partition
The Recovery Partition is a reserved space on your hard disk drive used to restore the operating system, drivers, and utilities installed on your Notebook PC at the factory.

Smart recovery problem on every boot


Since you used a program to resize the partitions it probably corrupted the file and\or made it unusable. I would recommend doing an entire system format of both partitions then backing up onto the separate hidden partition again and it should work.

Lg smart recovery


Resizing the partitions has affected the partition size of the hidden recovery partition. This is why the recovery does not work.
You need to get a Recovery CD for your model LG laptop from the LG WEB site so you can restore your laptop.
You maybe able to download the recovery CD from this site : -

How do you remove the recovery partition in windows 7


To remove the partition, you can use a tool called GParted. GParted can be downloaded and booted to and you can remove the partition using that tool. I will warn you that this is an advanced tool and could potentially corrupt data. Backup important files before proceeding.

Also if you have an OEM Windows 7 disk, you can boot to that and install Windows from scratch. When it boots, it will give you option to change the partition table on the drive which means you can remove it. This process will completely wipe your system and the partition, leaving you with a clean windows install. Always backup important files before proceeding.

Also know that the recovery partition is put there for a reason! Manufacturers create recovery partitions to include factory restore files. If you wipe out the recovery partition and do not have backup factory recovery disks, you will have no way to restore your PC to factory specs. You can still restore it from an OEM windows disk, it just won't be loaded with the factory bloatware...which isn't necessarily a bad thing!

Need to restore my Phillips iqor computer to factory settings but do not have a disk


You need to boot your computer then look and see if there is a Recovery Partition on the hard drive. Click Start/My Computer and see if there is a Recovery Partition listed. Some times the partition might be hidden so check your owners manual and see what it says about recovery.

Have you tried doing a system restore to a restore point (date and time) before you started having problems? It's much better than System Recovery because you won't loose any data. Click Start/Program/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore.

Need to reboot


if it has a recovery partition ..just press f11 on start and start to reinstall from it (completely ) ..if it is not working try from boot menu ..(press f12 on start 0 ..and in the menu choose recovery partition .
In case you do not have such partition .try from a recovery disk if you have ..or if this is not available too ..try to use a boot-able disk with a operation system image on it ..and reinstall it ..
To do so ..you need to download an image of the OS , after that burn it on the disk using a image burner ..and end up with a boot-able disk ..
Insert the disk and restart ...press f12 to bring up the boot menu ..select CD /DVD drive and enter ..it will boot from the disk and ask you to press any key to confirm ..After that will start loading files and go on with the process of installing windows.
Good luck !

Hard disk error code 2000-0146


Hi,

If happens that's the message it gives you by the machine, most likely its already a hardware problem but if you want to make sure try to do HDD scan, you can just go to any computer local center have them check if the HDD failed and if it failed you can purchase a new one.

Am having problem wt my recovery partition, I could't find it on the pc again so making recovery repair through recovery manager difficult and impossible, what do I do?


Contact the manufacturer of your computer, and place an order for a set of "System Recovery" CD/DVD disks. They will be courier-shipped to you, so that you can use the disks to recreate the recovery-partition, and then reinstall Windows.

Backup all your data before you use those disks!

if you have created recovery disk before the deleting of the recovery partition u can format the drive from your bios and create a new recovery partition using the recovery disk if not if your pc has crashed and your recovery partition is gone u will have to get a new operating system software but if your pc is still stable just run the recovery manager and restore to factory settings and it will put recover partition back on your hard disk
