Vista Compaq

#1
Hello,
I got a new pc it has vista premium and also its a compaq so it has the recovery thing in it..

in the past i dual booted a xp machine to test linux and vista and noticed that it DISABLES the recovery

i was wanting to know if this also disables the recovery setup (push FX at startup) because last time i tried dual booting i NEVER got it to work right again (so i dont wana break my new one lol)

please soemone test/tell me if this will aslo do that :frowning:

Unfortunanly playing around with the mbr messes up most system's recovery partitions. If you don't have the tools to re-install the operating system or do not backup the drive using disk imaging software, its really at your own risk that you mess around with it.
