I have delete my reocovery partition (6G) unintentionally, but I can’t build a new recovery partiton that can be recognized by recovery solution II at all.
What can I do?January 13, 2009 at 4:25 am #179411zhiyisunMember
Until now, there is no way to recreate it.January 26, 2009 at 3:19 am #179407prtsmgrMember
I was able to recreate the recovery partition (5 gb, not 6 like the original) by following this from the Samsung Recovery Solution Help File.
Note that the backup must be made to an external dvd first in order to recreate the hidden partition, and you will not be able to recreate the intial status backup.Quote:Restoring Restoration Area
You can restore the computer or the restoration area when the restoration area is deleted according to the procedures below.
– You can only restore the restoration area when you have completed the Complete Backup onto DVD. If you have completed the Complete Backup to another hard disk drive, you cannot restore the restoration area.
– Since the Initial Status image is not restored even if the restoration area is restored, you cannot use the Initial Status Restore function.
Insert the Complete Backup DVD into the DVD drive. If there are multiple backup DVDs for the Complete Backup, insert the first DVD.
If the highest booting device priority of the computer is set to CD or DVD, the Press any key to boot from CD or DVD message will appear in the booting screen. At this time, press any key.
For the procedures to change the boot device priority, refer to your computer’s User Manual.
The computer boots up in restoration mode and the Restore > Complete Restore screen appears.
Click Advanced at the bottom right part of the restoration point selection screen.
Select Restoring Recovery area and then click the OK button.
When the restoration is completed, click OK to restart the system.
You can now enter restoration mode by pressing the F4 key while booting up and using the Samsung Recovery Solution functions

just want to ask as I’m not clear with the instruction, does this work with external CD/DVD driver connected to the USB… and you just set the boot up order to look for the CD/DVD station, will the BIOS find the CD/DVD driver this way? I’m on NC10.June 16, 2009 at 7:22 am #179405AlfiharParticipant

Yes it works with an external USB optical drive, as you said to boot from the drive you just have to change the boot order in the BIOS no drivers are necessary.June 17, 2009 at 2:21 pm #179419kaotixMember
Well f**k me sideways. I asked about this some time ago and no one had any info 🙁
Oh well never mind.June 17, 2009 at 3:17 pm #179403jezMember
lol, well thanks prtsmgr. I guess that’s a reminder to RTFM ;)!June 18, 2009 at 9:46 am #179417sorenjulMember
Is it possible/legal to create a complete restore dvd with an empty windows partition and then share it so I and many others can restore the restore partition.
I might think it would work with these steps
1. create a complete restore dvd with your current setup
2. delete the windows patitions with the win xp setup disk
3. create another complete restore dvd now it should only contend the restore partition
4. restore your system with the original complete restore dvd from step 1.

Soren, I suspect that MS would not approve of you sharing it.June 18, 2009 at 7:00 pm #179418sorenjulMember
Mr. SammyNetbook, youre right!
The shared recovery dvd would only include the recovery partition since the windows partitions would be deleted. So the question is if Samsung would mind sharing the recovery partition?

I have completely removed the recovery partition as i had lost the origanal contents some time ago after a failed Ubuntu install and have merged it into the existing c drive.
Am i able to repartition my drive again making a new recovery partition of any size so that i may restore my whole system including office etc from f4 at startup if required using the Samsung recovery tool ?
Hope the above makes sense.September 19, 2009 at 4:33 am #179402AnonymousGuest
Hi. No, once you’ve deleted the recovery partition and you haven’t made a backup on to DVD, your fucked. I spoke to Samsung about this the other day as I’ve several machines with SRS supplied as standard, but the response was that only a service centre could recreate the partition as part of a complete image restore, something we customers can’t get hold of. If yourreading this and you’ve formatted your hard drive with a tool other than the tools supplied in XP, then your also screwed as the MBR which contains partition information may also have been deleted.September 20, 2009 at 3:02 pm #179420timmyhiggyMember
so to get things straight, the standard setup on an NC10 is a main partition (c:), a hidden recovery partition and another partition which the recovery tool automatically saves all backups to (D:)?
only i was thinking of doing a UNR install and was thinking of just deleting the d: and using that space, as i save my backups to my external HDD anyway. Would this be ok?September 20, 2009 at 3:30 pm #179408TCMuffinMember
Yes – that would be fine, but you’ll lose the ability to press F4 during the boot process to recover Windows XP.
Personally, I formatted my HDD and reinstalled Windows almost as soon as I received my NC10.September 21, 2009 at 4:01 am #179421usmarinedeltaMember
Quick question, my nc10 comes tomorrow, should I just put in a winxp cd (external cd drive) and format and partition the c: drive folks or should I do something else before I mess up something?
