Clean Install/Rescue & Recovery

2009-06-25, 20:53 PM

When I get my T400 tomorrow I plan on nuking every parition and creating only one C:/ drive on which I will install Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit. However, I still want to take advantage of some of the features that Thinkvantage Rescue and Recovery offers such as file recovery without having to boot into the OS enviroment. Is this possible?

 

Thanks! Can't wait till I get my T400 tomorrow.

No, Once you remove the recovery partiton you lose the ability to recover files without booting to the OS.

Before you blow the partitions away make a set of recovery discs.

What if I leave the two recovery paritions and just reformat and install Vista Home Premium 64-bit on the main one, will it still work?
