The Dell XPS comes with two hidden partitions using the Host Protected Area system. One of those partitions is Media Direct.
Would there be a problem with removing those partitions to use the maximum space?
I realize that my laptop's warranty will be limited if not voided if I do not use Dell's configuration. However, I'm a tech, and I shouldn't have to use any support, but laptops are more complex than desktops.
Is Media Direct worth the effort in restoring it?
What configuration do you have your laptop in? (Dell/HP/Acer; XPS line: et. al.)
Finally, what issues should I be aware of before I do this?
