I bought a brand new TouchSmart TX2 with Vista Home Premium.. I didn't create the recovery media..
I deleted the C: partition and created two new partitions (C & D) using my own Vista Ultimate DVD.. but I didn't touch the RECOVERY partition at all..
Now I decided to restore the laptop to original factory settings.. I went through the posts here and tried to make the RECOVERY partion "ACTIVE" using Disk Management console then I rebooted the laptop several times with and without pressing F11 but the recovery manager failed to start and I only got my installed Vista at the startup..
Is it possible to make use of the RECOVERY patition to restore my laptop to factory settings again??
Please help.. and thanks in advance
