I have a HP laptop. I upgraded to windows 7 ultimate from home basic. Now I'm trying to upgrade to Windows 8 but when I do I get a message saying not enough system partition. So I opened the disk manager and increased the size of system reserved partition and it was of no use I still got the same error.
Then I unfortunately deleted the 100MB system reserved partition by right clicking it and clicking format in the disk manager!
Now I am not able to boot any CD's from the startup including OS and recovery CD. Whenever I press esc it always goes to the login screen and it doesn't say anything about the boot from CD option. Now I could not even use my recovery CD.
I have 3 questions:
- Is it necesseary to create a system reserved partition if so how to create it?
- How to use my recovery cd
- How to install win 8
