recovery images for s10-3

[ Edited ]

hi folks,

 

just got my newly-fixed s10-3 and went about making recovery images.  Not knowing what the D partition was all about, i nixed it to extend my C drive.  I then found that my recovery images were crap, and can't make new ones since i killed the D drive.  Ugh, i'm an idiot.

 

Can anyone point me to images of the 2 DVDs I might download online somewhere?  My machine is an s10-3 with Windows 7 Starter.

 

Thanks!

There are no images to download. You would need to call and order recovery discs.

try to start-up your computer by pressing one key recover button. if it works, you may burn recovery discs.

@topmahof: yes, thanks, i know there are no official images available.  I was hoping someone from the community might offer theirs...

 

@yigit: i'll try when i get a chance, but would be flabergasted if it worked since i erased the partition with the image data apparently!

Re: recovery images for s10-3

if you didn't delete the hidden partition, you still have a chance. otherwise you need to order recovery discs.

Re: recovery images for s10-3

I deleted the "D" partition, not the hidden "OEM" partition at the end of the drive.

Re: recovery images for s10-3

Booting into the onekey recovery environment doesn't give me options to create images, though there are options to restore the system to the factory default state (no idea if it works though, and not about to try it!).  So, I guess I'm up the creek.

 

And yeah, I did extend the C partition over the D partition.  I assume whatever is there is gone for good!
