What fies on recovery partition


Did you use a Factory Recovery DVD supplied by the cpmputer manufacturer? Or did you load the OS from a Windows Vista DVD? If you didn't use the Computer's Factory Recovery disk the recovery partition is gone, when you loaded the Windows Vista DVD and formatted the HDD. That is, if I understant your statement. If you had your HDD partitioned into 2 secions, 1 your OS and another for whatever, your OS partition, containing the recovery, has been formatted. For example: C , being your OS and D, being your recovery , are one partition.

Hi, when I tried to upgrade/clone existing 60GB HD in Dell Inspiron 630m to HM160HC Samsung HDD, the HM160HC was partitioned to 60GB. I tried to fix the LBA to get back 160G but no success. I think only...


Hello Private672, Hi, If you have no important documents on the HDD or has been back up already, the full hdd size can be edited when you install another windows on it. there is a portion in the installation where you can delete and edit the partition. There are other free software utility on the internet for downloads to edit and low level your hard drive to get back the full size. among these are Partition Magic, Disk Manager. do a google search

hi if you are using windows vista/7 recovery disk to reinstall OS, then while choosing drive there must be advance option below it..choose it and then delete all the drives and then create new partitions from all the unallocated space..and then choose the drive from newly created partition to reinstall OS..

to backup all imp. data before doing so use UBUNTU LIVE CD..then do the clean install of vista/7

if the above trick doesnt work then download the GPARTED LIVE CD to repartition your HD..
use GPARTED live to boot.
choose the HDD
delete all the parition
create new partition (NTFS)
hit APPLY
shutdown GPARTED LIVE.
install windows vista/7 thorgh reinstall DVD.

Im not sure what exactly you have in the recovery partition ..but from what I know ..this is accessible by pressing F11 on boot ..and the info stored in it will restore the computer ..if you had vista in it before...probably will reinstall it ..so first just try to boot..and press f11 during the device displaying ..just like entering bios..and follow the instructions if it works..
another way is to install a clean operation system ...(the one that you use to have ..) by booting from cd ..(this will allow you to rearrange the partitions during install...in the moment when it sees previous OS ..and ask to choose a location for install..
after a clean install use the recovery cd that came with the laptop..
But..first try the recovery from that partition..if f11 do not work let me know and I will make some research in this matter ..

Recoverying the Vista


Well, I had the same exact stupid mistake, also on a Lenovo laptop, but a different model. Anyhow, Windows does not allow partitioning the drive which the OS is located on. It spoils the whole installation and damages the OS usually beyond repair.

I would advise you to do what I did- I tried to gracefully surpass the problem by restoring the windows but nothing happened. So, what I simply did was to format the whole computer and then divided the drive into C and D and installed Linux on one partition (all you need is about 10GB, and that's also a lot) and on the second partition I've installed the Windows OS. Good luck with that...

Error 1513, partition magic


YEP ... you can not re-size with success any partition that contain a operating system ...just for the simple cause that you can not format it with success after ...so ..if you want to re-size them ...just reinstall the os...and format the partitions during the re-installation ...but keep in mind that you will loose any data on the hdd ..so ..even when you use partition magic..the new rebuild partition need to be formatted if not ...it will be just the same but with some unallocated space ...and with the other smaller... so reinstall and rebuild both partitions...be sure you know what you are doing cause you might end up with a dual boot ..or worse ...with a single partition ....etc

Disk partition


My preferred solution is GParted. You can download this LiveCD and boot from it. The interface is fairly simple to understand. NOTE: It is important that after you resize a Windows partition you boot it up right away and allow it to scan the disk.

Dell Inspiron 1525 Partition


I don't recommend just partitioning with an active system.(only when you are reinstalling or installing your OS for the first time) The reason they have multiple partitions is for reinstall/recovery.  You can right click on My Computer and click manage.  Click disk managment to see more details about partitions.  If it is an UNLETTERED partition leave it alone.  I use partition magic (it's not free) There are free ones but you get what you pay for.  Partitions are touchy with the possibliity you ruin your MBR and need to fdisk and reinstall windows.  Be sure you know what you are doing.
