Hey,

I'm posting this question for a friend of me.
He boucht a new pc with XP on it. But once his sytem chrased and he had to reset it.
Now his XP will not start any more and it goes directly to dos.
He has been surching for recovery CDs but they wore not included with the pc. he rang the store and they told him the recovery CDs are on a hidden partition on his HD.
But now we have problems to find that hidden partition. If the partition is hidden, how can it be made unhidden,so you can acces it. :tazz:
Is there any one with experience in this area? ;)

More than likely, but why not contact the store and have them tell you how to access the partition at bootup?

I just fund out the people told him also to use F11 with bootup. That always works they sayed. :tazz:

He has onely waranty on the hardware. So If he wants it to be fixed by the people of the store, they bill him for it.
