Windows 7: Creating a recovery partition - Windows 7

Creating a recovery partition - Windows 7

Hello all,

Recent disk crash on my Samsung has been the nightmare of all nightmares. The replacement drive has no recovery area setup, so cannot install the recovery software and thus recover from a backup made with it!

Either I spend a fortune at a Samsung service centre, or try one shot at recreating it.

So, my question is....

How do I create a partition WITHOUT a drive letter, with the Volume labelled as "RECOVERY"?

I suspect that this is not possible, but if it is, how then do I change the status to EISA configuration?

Here is a screenshot of somebody else's setup....

I should add that I have recovery software that install windows etc. so no worries if it screws up my base system(without any of my data).

Wow, stumbled on the drive letter solution. Set it without a drive letter, right click to rename.

Now I just need to change the status to EISA configuration?

Try this

Click on type cmd in the search box then right-click and choose Run as administrator type in DiskPart and press ENTER type in list disk when you see DISKPART>_and select your disk: DISKPART> select disk 0
List all partitions: DISKPART> list partition
Now, select the partition (see step 1) DISKPART> select partition 1
Type DISKPART> detail partition
Set the type of the partition to 27. Type DISKPART> set id = 27 override

That set the volume to blank and file system to blank and I cannot do anything with it in Disk management. Set back to 1.

Make a Logical partition inside the extended partition.

Use the Sansung Recovery DVD's, which will remake the Recovery Partition.
