Gregrocker, no I did not resize or in any other way affect the Recovery partition. Been 1 1/2 years since purchase.Bummer. But I think I can figure it out now that I found this great forum resource, as well as the Great responses. Thanks again.!
When I try to burn the dvd's, it will not do so due to the d: partition.
I guess I will end up shrinking it , or removing it.
But I also saw where there is a hidden recovery partition, that I can probably copy. That should be enough to give me peace of mind.
