I hope someone can help me. I have a Sony VAIO PCV-RZ46G. After years of stuff I thought I would format everything and start from scratch. I have the recovery disks. The machine came partitioned with a 15GIG C: and the rest of the 200GIG HD was D:. I thought I would be smart (yea right) and used Partition Magic to make C: 50Gigs and D: the rest. I have sence found out that Sony uses a hidden partition for recovery files. Well the brainiac I am, I deleted it when I partitioned it. After many times of trying the recovery disks I finely got Windows MCE 2004 to reinstall but it will not load and of the original applications ie: Click to DVD, Power DVD etc.. I get the error: "disk can not be found" or "not enough hard disk space". I think it all has something to do with the missing recovery partition. Can anyone tell me how I can create the recovery partition using Partition Magic, Fdisk etc.? And is it possible to put the files back onto it using the recovery disks? Thanks in advance,
