cant put the image in my post for some reason so heres a link.
Where disk0 and disk1 already attached to system at the time you bought it? Quite unusual... 2 hard drives.

A 465GB partition "recovery partition" is ridiculous... not a real recovery partition

So disk0 is something you added later?

In Elevated Command Prompt
Code:
diskpart
select  disk 0
select  part 0
detail part
select disk 1
select part 0
detail part
select part 1
detail part
exit

Have you ever done the "restore to factory settings" with the new disk attached? succesfully?
Have you ever done the "restore to factory settings" without the new disk attached? succesfully?
