I've bought an Optical Hard Disk bay to increase space storage of my laptop and now I haven't any way to reinstall my operating system if one day it becomes unusable. So, I tried to create a recovery parition using the method I saw worked on other computers :
- Created a new parition (V:)
- Copy Windows Setup files on V:
- Open Administrator CMD :
- cd boot
- bootsect.exe /nt60 V:
- Mark partition active
I'm using Windows 8 RTM (MSDN) and I try to do it on a second Hard Disk. The thing is, it doesn't work. Parition is unbootable. When I select the hard disk on the BIOS Popup menu it just skip it to the main disk, the one where Windows 8 is.
