lost my original x60 cds, how to reserve a partition for recovery partition?

2009-01-01, 15:20 PM

Hi,

 

I cannot find my original x60 tablet cds. And I am installing win xp pro now on a new hd I just put in.

 

I'd like keep a partition for recovery (like the original one in system). Can I just make a separate partition in xp installation? How big should I give to it?

 

And how should I make partitions if I want to install multiple OS? (XP and Vista) with recovery for both?

 

Thanks!

you can't reserve a recovery partition in the normal sense if you don't have the Lenovo recovery media. If you want to do a dual boot you will have to partition your hdd into two drives.

 

 

You can partition your hdd by using an aftermarket software like PartitionMagic, etc.
