Is there a chance to use or start the recovery setup through the cmd.exe?
I booted with a windows 7 pro usb stick and entered the cmd. I can switch into c:\, which is the recovery partition.

The recovery partition doesn't show up in my windows boot loader (F9). I tried the bootrec /fixmbr and bootrec /fixboot but the recovery partition isn't showing up. I only get a windows7 error, which says that the installed windows isn't accessible (because I deleted it).

Deleted versions = fedora 15 and windows 7 pro 64bit (dual usage) Recovery partition = Windows 7 Home Premium x64
