Hi bigwheels,

http://www.win.tue.n...on_types-1.html
27 Windows RE hidden partition
On MBR disks, type 0x27. On GPT disks, GUID: DE94BBA4-06D1-4D40-A16A-BFD50179D6AC. A hidden version of a Windows RE type 0x7 partition with NTFS. When this is installed, reboot and press F8 in order to boot into this Recovery Environment.

So if your disk is structured MBR, this is very likely the Recovery partition.
