Windows 7: Asus recovery partition creation?

Asus recovery partition creation?

So I recently purchased an Asus k52J laptop but decided to return it soon after. Unfortunatly even though the laptop is in new condition they won't accept it because I deletd the recovery partition like an idiot! I asked if I just restored to factory settings if they would accept it then, they still refused because it wouldn't have the recovery partition, I tried to create the recovery partion normally but it wont work since Windows 7 tries to backup the entire C drive instead of just the boot files and it inveitavbly runs out of room on the hard drive. Is there anyone way to recreate that original recovery partition or at least something that will fit in 19 gig partition? I'd really appreciate the help

Running the Recovery disks will often restore the Recovery partition as well. One of their purposes is to restore the factory image to a new or replacement HD.

I'd ask Acer to be sure.

As I understand, if the OEM Recovery disks are used to recover the system, the recovery partition can sometimes be recreated with the recovery CD as well.

If ASUS recovery disks can do that, then you may have to hunt for another user having the same system, get the recovery disks from him and recreate the factory recovery partition.

A better solution will be to take an image of the complete host system's HDD, restore it on your laptop and then run factory recovery from the recovery partition. Then ASUS should have no objection

I guess that should work. You only have to find a host and try it. The vendor from whom you purchased the system should be able help you find a host. ( Also explore whether the vendor himself can take an image from a new ASUS laptop (same Model) and help you out. )
