win7_home_64
 
 

I restored all partitions and now F11 is working. F8 does NOT....

What I want:
F11 .. starts Recovery environment from HP recovery partition .. so far OK
F8 .. should start recovery environment from Microsoft C:\windows\system32

BCD after restore:
Code:
C:\Windows\system32>reagentc /info

You have a normal F8 Advanced Boot Options menu except that Repair My Computer is not showing on it, after running full Factory Recovery on all partitions?

Please post up a screenshot of your maximized Disk Mgmt drive map with listings, using Snipping Tool in Start Menu.

I would like to thank boyan for his inputs here and the excellent utility.

I was lost and searched the web thin on advice as to how to enable the F11-key at boot. Now I have solved this and it works great (even though I believe the original layout of the F11-key was built into the MBR-code/displayed on the BIOS screen).


I just have a few questions:
  • The Recovery volume is listed with the wrong name in the boot menu even though the settings are correct (double checked) and shows up correctly in Windows/System GUI. The choice "RAM disk" boots the Recovery partition but is displayed wrongly. Also, the boot manager is displayed in English even though locale is da-DK. See code below...
  • Is it possible to boot a VHD which contains the files of a bootable CD/DVD? Other ways to put a bootable media in here?
  • Can I put a bat or cmd file in the tools section or is this only for DOS exe's?
I have enclosed output from bcdedit below. This has been edited from Vistax86 (original BCD) - should anything be different in Win7x64 especially with regard to resume and memory settings (x86PaeMode, AllowBadMemory etc.)? What is "hidden_integer" (custom:47000005 301989892 2) used for?

Thanks,
Søren

Sorry to necro this thread, but it has the most technical info about this issue that I've seen on the web.

I was determined to figure out how to restore F11 functionality on boot after moving the recovery partition. It turns out that it is pretty simple. The LBA of the first sector of the recovery partition is hard-coded into the MBR at a certain address. Updating these 4 bytes with the new starting LBA of the recovery partition restores functionality of the F11 key. Although it's simple, I wouldn't recommend that the average user follow these instructions, as you could render your computer unbootable. At the very least, make sure you can boot from an alternate disk so you can fix the MBR if you mess it up.

The particular model I worked on is an HP Mini 311-1037NR. The addresses I'm mentioning might only pertain to that model or at least the version of MBR that it uses. For other models, I would recommend checking the original MBR (prior to moving/resizing) and comparing the two offsets I mention below. If they don't match, you'll need to find out where the first address is located in your MBR and use documentation to locate the LBA of the first sector of your recovery partition (as long it is partition 3, it should be the address I mention, though).

You need a tool that can read / write the MBR. I used BootICE.

The first thing I'd recommend is to backup your current MBR to a file: Make sure the correct disk is selected in the destination disk dropdown and click Process MBR, then Backup MBR. After you've successfully backed up, return to the main screen and click Sector Edit.

It should open sector 0 by default. If not, make sure you are editing sector 0. The starting LBA for partition 3 is stored in offset 1E6-1E9 (4 bytes - don't change this data, only read it.). These bytes need to be replicated over the values stored at offset 02C-02F (this is the address that tells HP Recovery Manager where the recovery partition is). The attached image explains this graphically. Click save after you've edited the data. Reboot and try your F11 key.
