Hi guys -really hope you can help on this one. I have a HP 6735s laptop - being HP, it comes with a recovery partition (press Esc for menu, then F11 for recovery). I recently wiped the whole hdd (backed up the recovery partition first) - then re-created the partitions (1 C:\ drive with 223Gb (no label)(NTFS) - 1 D:\ Drive (named HP_RECOVERY) with 9GB(NTFS) and 1 E:\ drive with 1Gb (named HP_TOOLS)(FAT32). I then installed XP (had to change SATA mode in BIOS) - this worked fine for a while, but kept on freezing - it seems the drivers cause issues in XP. So i decided to revert back to Vista - easy option would be to use recovery (F11). I press F11 but an error comes on screen - something like "Boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible" - i downloaded EasyBCD to repair this - but it doesnt see anything within the BCD file? It says invalid entries or none found?? - Basically HP boot into a WinPE environment, then it opens HP's own Recovery Environment. Since i re-partitioned the drive, it seems the GUID in the BCD cannot find the correct drive to use the HP recovery - No files have been deleted or altered. Any advice pls?
