I've got an Asus EEE PC 1000HA that came with windows. As soon as I got it I installed UNR, leaving the windows, windows restore and fast boot partitions alone.
As its handy to have one Windows machine around, I restored the Windows installation today to factory settings. Much to my surprise, the restore didn't touch the MBR, leaving GRUB working just as it did before.
I saw during the restore that it uses Norton Ghost for its internal operations.
If I shrink the Windows XP partition, will I be able to restore to factory OS, without it killing the MBR or the other partition (that now sits where the original OS partition ended)?
