Hi, i have a friend who has an asus ft3 laptop. he took it to another friend to "fix" and the person corrupted teh computer by formatting the drives and installing vista again. something happened with the partitions and recovery drive and now it starts to boot into vista and gives a big giant error message making reference to a c:\boot\recovery.dat file

I have a copy of vista ultimate and poped it in, went through the vista install setup, formatting the drive and creating a new partition. both drivers are showing as primary but the c:\ should be set as logical? is that correct.

not sure what to do i can try putting win xp on it but fear i may have same issues.

he conveniently lost the asus recovery disk so that is not an option, is there a place to download them or will we have to take it in to a service shop and restore?

i would liuke to be able to fix it as it seems to be a boot setting or configuration issue.

appreciate your help and advice.

Thank you!   Grin

Your best bet would be to call ASUS and request the recovery software, then you will have it for future use also
