No usually if your recovery partition is gone, you would be required to reinstall u r recovery software that came with your computer, if you don't have the recovery dvd then you'd have to buy a new one, or if you have the software for you operating system such as XP Vista etc!, you can just re install it, and search for drivers on the mfg web site for your computer.

But all data you had on you hard disk will be lost eather way!

If I can be of further assistance send me a request, I would be pleased to assist you in anyway I can.

Reset to factory setting


It would be helpful if we knew the Make, Model of Laptop and the OS. Without knowing ANY info, reboot, select the correct F key to boot to Recovery Software, select Full Recovery, provided you have a Recovery Partition. ALL your data will be lost, ALL updates must be installed, your laptop will return to the day it came out of the box. OR, buy a Factory Recovery DVD/CD's from your Laptop Manufacturer.

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.

Does a Hp 6720s laptop with XP pro have a built in recovery feature without a disk.


Hello, Most newer laptops now come without a recovery disk because the recovery is usually on the hard disk partition D.If you check yours and it has the partition for recovery, you can still burn this partition into a DVD media because the partition are usually large, incase something happens to your laptop recovery, you still have your recovery on your DVD MEDIA. Go to start>computer and check. Regards

Restore factory settings


On some computers, the disk-drive is "partitioned" into two parts -- your 'C:' drive and a 8GB "recovery" partition. If so, then when you start-up your computer, there is an option to boot from that Recovery Partition, and to reinstall Windows.

On some computers, there is software that lets you burn your own CD/DVDs that can then be used to reinstall Windows. Have 4 or 5 "blank" DVD disks, or 8 to 10 "blank" CD disks, before you run this software.

If you have "lost" the original disks, contact LG. For a small fee, they will ship you a replacement "System Recovery" CD/DVD set of disks.

How to recovery without cd sony vaio


When you turn it on, if you are given the choice of what to boot[press F8? key when booting], pick the recovery console, and recover from the hidden partition on the hard disk. Most allow you to use the hidden recovery partition to make a DVD for backup. I would do that, too.

Acer 5050


by default acer 5050 have 3 partitions
1. OS partition (C)
2. Data (D)
3. Recovery partition (hidden).

If you deleted recovery parition, you can't recover your C parition using Alt+F10. Your only option is recovery from cd/DVD recovery that you created. if you didn't create the cd/dvd, you can call acer support to buy the recovery dvd.
