- F11 starts hp environment like "Ramdisk Options" does now
- post #15 shows the output of original BCD C:\Users\Administrator>bcdedit /store C:\sources\acronis111209\Laufwerk(C)\Boot\bcd /enum all
- if I use reagentc /disable the store looks different afterwards
diabled:
Code:

The difference between the two BCD outputs is exactly as expected.

reagentc /disable = delete one recovery loader + its device options + removing customactions pointing to deleted recovery loader + amend basic Windows 7 loader (to not recovery enabled).


So you can now start Windows 7 and start Recovery - anything else ?

If the manual bcd edits won't do it, I would run HP Factory Recovery disks which should have been made at Setup or can be ordered from Tech Support, possibly for little cost if PC is new. This should restore everything as before. Recover Windows 7 Operating System Using HP Recovery - HP Klantenondersteuning (Nederland - Nederlands)

You can try first running any full HD image backup but it may not restore the hotkeys.

I've not seen resizing C cause this problem on HP, even after conversion to Logical to add more subpartitions. It's Recovery Partition is pretty resilient and normally survives even after doing a clean reinstall to C.

Check also your ESC menu at boot to see what you find.

Maybe it was the fact, that I had to move the recovery partition after shrínking C.

How could I achieve my wished structure from within w7 ?? .. structure see post #17

What we've helped do in the past which seems to work fine is convert C to logical, shrink it and use that space to add any other needed Logical sub-partitions.

This doesn't move the Recovery partition which can be problematic as we're seeing in two other threads here today.

I'd consider backing up, run Factory Recovery disks to set it back to factory condition, then do the above using Disk Mgmt or if necessary free Partition Wizard bootable CD, then set it up once you know it works.

Save a Win7 backup image so you have path back.

1. Create Custom Bootstrap Action - give it "Recovery loader" and say F10 as parameters. (two selections and confirm.). The tool implements over 100 key codes but not F11 and F12 .

2. Edit "customactions" element in {bootmgr} - replace the value(F10) with the value(F11) you should have written down on paper (see begin of thread).

You can delete the id of recovery loader from boot menu (bootmgr->DisplayOrder element) so it will not be visible. This would give the final touch to the exercise.

THX to both of you ...
0. but Partition magic has gparted built into it. Does it have any further advantage over it (most time it will have anolder version of gp)

1 is done

2. I restored C:\boot undera folder c:\acronis. Now I am not allowed do delete this folder, because it has elements like bootmgr within it ... What to do ??

3. boyans
a) I tried custom action. F11 does not work in Biossetup , but works on the boot menue. Then I deleted the OEM custom type action from bootloader, so just custom action is left. Now F11 is not even working in bootmenue. reagentc /disable /enable brings back OEM_custom type.
Maybe the following reagentc options regarding image and bootkey might help...your suggestion, how should it be used ? which code ? 0x1000085000001 0x5400000f ?
Code:
REAGENTC.EXE [Optionen]
  Folgende Optionen können angegeben werden:
  /setreimage /path  <Verzeichnisname> [/target <Verzeichnisname>]
  [/bootkey <Abfragecode>]
             Legt den Speicherort des vom Benutzer bereitgestellten
             Windows RE-Abbilds fest.
             Die optionale Option "/target" gibt den Pfad des Speicherorts
             der Windows-Installation an.
             Die optionale Option "/bootkey" gibt den Abfragecode für
             eine OEM-spezifische Starttaste an.
  /setosimage [/path <Verzeichnisname> [/target <Verzeichnisname>]]
  [/customtool]
             "/path" legt den Speicherort der vom Benutzer bereitgestellten
             Setupdateien für das Betriebssystem fest.
             Alternativ gibt "/customtool" an, dass in Windows RE ein Abbild-
             tool angegeben wurde.

I looked on a backup I made from the new PC and also there it says unknown device Data = byte[72]. maybe we should copy the old id to a new id and use this ???
Can you please explain this unknow device data .. is it a hp special ?
