Dell :: Any Reason To Not Delete The Recovery Partition?

Oct 22, 2009

I have an m1530 and my Windows 7 is on its way! I currently have 10gb just sitting there doing nothing thanks to the recovery partition from the factory and I was

thinking of deleting that partition and creating a 50gb partition for windows 7 and having the remaining hard drive as storage for an easy future formatting environment.

1) Is there any reason to keep the recovery partition and am I safe to delete it and regain my 10gb?

2) 50gb might be too much, but Im not too sure what the windows 7 fingerprint is (15gb?). What is a good OS partition size for windows 7

Acer :: How To Unhide And Delete Recovery Partition In Aspire 6920

Oct 3, 2009

I have Acer Aspire 6920 Notebook which came with vista home premium in 64 bit installed. I have made Recovery disks (3 DVDs) and had resorted to factory defaults several times by using the DVDs and not by Alt+F10 (at that time I did not know about alt+f10). I now have removed the 64- bit vista home premium and have windows-7 Ultimate RTM, Vista Home Premium and XP Pro all in 32 bit in three separate partitions in one single hdd. I have also done BIOS upgrade from 1.06 to 1.14. I have SATA mode set to IDE instead of the default AHCI due to XP not functioning under AHCI interface.

My BIOS shows hdd pw frozen by default though I have removed the hdd and set the BIOS to default twice. I find the Vista Home Premium in 64 bit OEM is a real pain since it has a lot of third party softwares Ė free and sharewares Ė which I have to uninstall every time (more than 20 of them) and therefore I tried to delete the acers recovery partition which is of 18 GB size and my Notebook with 250 GB hdd shows only 232 GB.

However, the partition is hidden and I have tried to unhide and delete the recovery partition with a number of third party partition softwares like Paragon, partedit32, Easeus, Norton, acronis, G-parted, macrium reflect, all with no success!

Now I request the learned members to give me a solution that will work, in simple procedure explained, to unhide the acer recovery partition and deleting it without disturbing my present OSes installed on the three partitions. Macrium does not show the PQ Service/EISA partition.

HP Pavilion Dv7-6b50ei Recovery :: Trying To Factory Reset But Recovery Partition / Discs Created Faulty

Jul 8, 2013

I have a pavilion dv7-6b50ei notebook pc bought 2012. It always gives a command prompt pop up which doesn't stay long enough to read. I also felt there's a virus on it which my anti-virus couldn't solve so I tried factory resetting but when I restart and press F11 it gives an error(something like a boot.. is missing). so I tried my recovery discs. Disc 1 of 4 ran fine but disc 2 keeps stopping with an error.

Now the laptop doesn't load as I think the OS has been formatted during the recovery and don't know what to do. I feel disc 2 is bad too because it also gave an error while trying to copy it to a USB pen drive. I have also tried an external dvd and run the hp test on the hard drive; the hard drive passed the test. If I can get a new set of recovery discs, it would solve my problem.

Acer Aspire ES1-111M :: Can't Delete Recovery Partition To Free Up Disk Space

Dec 20, 2014

I've created a Factory Default Backup with a USB drive with Acer Recovery Management.  I see this message which tells me I can delete the recovery partion to free up disk space after I've created the backup but it never gives me the option to do so.
 
I DO get the option to remove the Driver Recovery Partition after backing it up to USB but not the 10GB Recovery Partition.  It's a a HUGE deal on a system that only has a 32GB hard drive.

HP/Compaq :: Want To Clean Up/format Presario C310 -- Use Recovery Disks Or Recovery Partition?

Aug 30, 2009

Iíve just done a clean install of my Dell Vostro -- reinstalling vista and removing the recovery partition in the process. Outcome = a Ďcleanerí machine with none of the preinstalled bloatware/c**p from Dell. (first time Iíve done anything like this, but followed a brill guide in the Dell section of this forum ).

Iím about to tackle my Mums Compaq Presario C310EA. The aim is to remove all the rubbish she has accumulated over the years, incl any spyware/ adware she may have, and generally have a bit of a clean sweepÖ. hopefully resulting in a faster laptop. Iím backing up her data, and moving some of my Dadís stuff somewhere else.

Basically I want to clean up as much as poss, but unfortunately she has no xp disk, just the recovery disks (cds) she burned when she first got the laptop.

As she has no xp disk I guess the best I can hope for is to reset the laptop to the factory settings (?) .. not ideal, but I donít think the (factory set) bloatware is too much of an issue for her Ė sheís not a heavy user.

Should I use the recovery partition for this, or do I need to use the cds she burned? .

Iíd like to know the best approach Ė and canít seem to find a set of instructions to follow.

HP ProBook 6550b OS/Software :: Recovery Partition Is There But Recovery Won't Start

Mar 13, 2011

When trying to restore the factory image (F11 during boot), the laptop seems like it is trying to boot the missing Windows installation (Windows boot manager error page).The partitions "SYSTEM", "HP_RECOVERY" and "HP_TOOLS" have not been touched. The ~15 GB recovery files are still there!The Windows partition (2nd primary) has been deleted and recreated as an NTFS partition. Since then the recovery process will not start.
 
How can I restore the system from my intact HP_RECOVERY partition without using recovery DVDs? (I can't access them right now.)Does the Windows partition need some specific disk label? What is the magic that breaks the recovery when a NTFS partition is simply deleted and recreated?Peter

HP Pavilion Dv6-2140EI OS/Software :: Hard Drive Failure - No Recovery Partition

Apr 23, 2014

I have a Pavilion DV6-2140EI notebook with a failed hard drive. I purchased a new hard drive but to my surprise, all recovery disks or system image files are useless without the recovery partition on the drive. It appears that HP and Microsoft teamed up to not support hard drive failure. As you no longer get the original operating system on disk anymore, it looks like one is forced to purchase Windows again after hard drive failure.

HP Pavilion G7 2223nr Recovery :: Lost Hidden Partition - Error Code 0000225

Jun 15, 2012

I have a Pavilion G7 2223nr. It came with w7, and free upgrade to W8. Was never able to go to W8.1. Caught something bad everything went south. Had to reload win 7 pro, I had the software pack from MS.

I cannot get the computer to reconize anything doing with the ethernet, or the WiFi.

I tried F11 at bootup, and all I get is Computer is broken error code 0000225.

I have lost my HP partition, so I need to know if HP sells a disk that will give it back to me?

If all else fails I just use my tablet until I buy win8, or 8.1. Or I take it to a repair shop. I have been researching this for 2 days, have downloaded all drivers from HP for my computer, and it still doesn't recognize any device.

HP Pavilion Dv6226us OS/Software :: Create VISTA Recovery Disk - Backup Partition Removed

Apr 8, 2014

A friend brought over her HP Pavilion dv6226us Laptop running VISTA.  The hard drive was full and the machine could not be used for anything.  Would like to wipe the dirve and start over, but need a VISTA recovery disk for the machine.  The D: partition where the  backup files from HP resides was removed from the drive so Recovery manager is not an option.  Checked the HP support site and there are not recovery disks available for HP for this model laptop with VISTA, at least when I entered all the information on the site it did not list anything.
 
Is there anything that can be done by copying the correct files from the WINDOWS directory on the C drive.

HP Pavilion 7-e019dx Recovery :: Laptop Won't Go Past Recovery Screen Running Windows 8

HP Pavilion G7 Recovery :: Laptop Image Recovery Copy File Fails?

Dec 15, 2014

Equipment: HP Notebook g7
Operating system: Windows 8 
 
I purchased a Pavilion g7 laptop in December 2012.  The 1TB HDD that came with the laptop started to go bad on me.  After several attempts to 'system self-repair' (which failed) I purchased a replacement Seagate SSHD 1TB HD.  Since I did not have any Windows 8 recovery discs I contacted HP, paid for and had them sent to me.
 
So now I have a new SSHD, new W8 recovery discs and my laptop.  I replaced the HD and started the recovery process per the paper instructions that came with the discs.
 
At 4% (in the 'Copying files required to restore the hard drive phase') I get an error message:
 
                    Reducer (Title of the error message)
 
                    Copy File Fails
                    From: D:/PRELOAD/BASE14.SWM
                    To:  C:/RM/Image/BASE14.SWM
 
                    Press OK to retry. 
 
Obviously since I'm posting about this simply pressing 'OK to retry' did not work.  I powered the laptop down and restarted the recovery process.  I got the same error message at the same point described above.

HP Pavilion Dv6000 Recovery :: Bootmgr Is Missing - No Installation Or Recovery Disk

Mar 2, 2013

I have an HP Pavilion dv6000 and run Windows Visa Home Edition.I wanted to restore my laptop to its factory settings but the Recovery Manager wouldn't work. When I clicked on it it would just restart the computer without anything else happening. I then right clicked on the computer >manage> disk manager and made the recovery partition active. When I rebooted the computer it began showing:Bootmgr is missingPress Ctrl+Alt+DeleteWhich of course leads back to the same message after te computer reboots. I can't access F8 key. Only F10 (Bios) works. I don't have a recovery or installation CD as it didn't come with the laptop when I purchased it.Is there anyway I can change the active partition back to the C drive, this disabling the recovery partition? I read that it was possible to access disk manager from cmd prompt window, but I don't know how to access it since the F8 key won't work (makes just a bipping noise when pressed)?I am also out of the country so can't mail my laptop to HP to have it fixed.

HP Pavilion TS 11-e100 Recovery :: Cannot Create Recovery Media After SSD Installation

Dec 13, 2014

I've just replaced HDD by SSD and tried to make a recovery USB media by means of 8.1 recovery utility. The process takes suspiciously short time, but finishes normally reporting that media is created. The size of all files on the flash is about 200 MB. When I did the same media with HDD the size was 12GB. I tried to boot with that flash and it failed with a message about corrupted media or the like. I always believed that windows does not take into account the physical structure of the drive and cannot understand what's going on and what to do.
