I have a Sony Vaio. I wanted to put Linux Mint 14 on it. I used disk management to resize my drive. On the disk manager it should the different partitions available. I installed Linux in the unallocated space. Linux did was not running to its full potential.
I then deleted the partition with linux on it.
Cutting a long story short. I downloaded gparted live. Ran this deleted the Raid drive. Kept my hidden partition. This in turn resulted in the loss of the boot mbr. Reedited the MBR allocated the wrong source coded for the recovery partition.
Now when the Laptop boot it will give me 6 options. Windows 7 loader sda/drv0 Windows 7 loader sdb/drv0
Can I change one of these to enter the recovery hidden Partition?
Or would it be best to copy the hidden Partition to an external drive and boot the factory software from the USB drive instead.
Linux Mint 64 bit / Windows 7 64 bit
