After Partition, is still Recovery Boot will work?

2008-05-02, 16:08 PM
I brought T61 which as 160 GB HDD, I am planning to do Partition, by using Acronis Disk Director Suite 10.0. After doing partition, I want to clean up my system and install OS by using Recovery(which is in my laptop).Can I do like that.So that I can keep OS and other imp install files in C: Drive and other stuff in D: and E:.

I would suggest a small change in the order of how you execute your plan:  After you receive your T60, go ahead and boot from the hard disk drive, create a Recovery Media kit and use the resulting CDs or DVDs to reload the operating system.  After you have verified these are working, use Acronis Disk Director Suite 10.0 to resize the disk volumes (partitions) on the hard disk drive.  If it works successfully, everything is good and no further actions are required.  If it does not work, you will still be able to reload the operating system from the Recovery Media.
