View Full Version : Need to rebuild a G74SX Recovery Partition (Folders and Files)

Hi everyone,

I just picked up a G74SX and going through a clean install (Win7 Home Premium).

The previous owner had wiped the recovery partition data but I managed to salvage it with GetDataBack. The problem is that some folder and file names weren't retrieved correctly.

Can anyone provide either a snapshot, folder & file txt list, or just guidance of what the contents should be named? I have about 90% of it in front of me. It would be great to get it to 100%.

Can't wait to have this laptop up and running. Thanks!

Just do a clean install with all the drivers listed here.


It's not worth having the recovery partition.

Hey thanks for the quick reply.

Technically I've now done that. I was just hoping to set up the machine so it has the potential to be stock if need be. More importantly I wanted it to be turnkey

In the end I'll move it all to Win10 anyway but I wanted to build out two partitions (Win7 OEM & Win10 Clean) so I have options down the line.

Is there any doc out there that someone can post? A TXT file with the folder structure would suffice. I can't remember what apps do that some of them just spit out the structure to XML or something.

Thanks again!
