I got an new laptop I need to install it for a friend but there is a
Dutch version of Windows installed on it already, so I want to format
it and reinstall Windows xp pro eng on it.
How can I acces the hidden partition on it, I quess the manifactur has
saved recovery stuff/drivers etc. How can I acces these so I can copy
it and use the drivers when I reinstall.
I tried to make an image of the partition but I got this error:
"""Partition 1 type 12 has an invalid boot record.
It can be copied on a sector basis or the operation can be aborted."""
Can anyone explain what this exactly means and can I just make the
image or should I stop?
Thanks in advance
