I have merged the c and d drives into one using Paragon partition manager and am now unable to access the Samsung Recovery partition by pressing f4 at boot up.
I am also unable to make a backup or restore from a backup as the system keeps rebooting into windows instead of piopping into the recovery program.
The bacup partiion is still here as shwn in Paragon but i cannot access it.
I have obviously done somrthing t mess it up but do not know what so any help in repairing this problem would be appreciated.
Hello. Got rid of my partition and use the recovery disk if needed.
Also use Macrium Reflect to make an image of the disk which I can restore if needed (albeit a bit on the slow side).
I’m a tinkerer by nature so the Sammy is rarely static for more than a few weeks. he he. Love the saying…tinker and tinker till it breaks then tinker some more till it works again.
I think this may be something to do with my boot.ini file which i think was modified when i installed Ubuntu and subsequently uninstalled and completely messed my system up.
I have reinstalled everything from the recovery dvd’s and all is working fine except Samsung recovery manager and f4 at startup to enter the recovery partition.
Could someone let me have any ideas to re-enable the f4 function by altering the boot.ini file if you think this is where my problem lies.
Here is my boot.ini file if someone could compare for me please ;-
