Post a screenshot of a full screen Disk Management window:

To open Disk Management, press the Windows key (next to left Ctrl key) +r, type diskmgmt.msc and press Enter or click GO..

XP: CAPTURE - How to capture screen images (screen shots), Windows Made Easy

Use the Browse and Attach This File buttons below the text input area while using the Full editor to upload and insert here.

That will show whether you have a Recovery partition or not.

I don't live here, I volunteer and have a real life, so you need to be patient.

You do not have a recovery Partition so you will need a XP install CD or a manufacturers recovery disc.

The manufacturers recovery disc is probably cheaper and cana still be purchased here: RecoveryDiscs.com. I purchased 4-5 from them and never had a problem.

No disrespect or anything but that bump was for a reply in general unless you are the only one to work the xp section forum. This site has completely changed since the last time I used it (negatively) so I will go else where with questions but do appreciate your time and help. Thank you

I was not trying to offend you, just pointing out that we're all volunteers. You waited about 3 hours then bumped your topic so I thought it would be a good idea (obviously not from your point of view, sorry) to remind you of the volunteer status here, or any help site actually.

I did answer your question and provided a way to do what you want. Hope it helped.

Take care.
