    Get recovery partition back

    HI,
    I have deleted the recovery partition, deleted windows 7 (currently using ubuntu) and I didn't create the recovery dvds.
    Is there any chanchance to get this partition back ?

    Thanks in advance.


    ps > I see that I can download all drivers and utilities from asus webpage, i.e AI Recovery utility, if so I could install a new windows, install this soft and create the recovery dvds, Am I right ?

    Not going to be able to create recovery dvds that way sorry. Choices right now if you need recovery DVDs are to buy them from asus or find someone with the exact same machine model to get you a copy somehow.

    DOWNLOAD ALL YOUR DRIVERS FIRST AND BURN THEM TO A DVD OR PUT THEM ON A SD CARD.

    Yeah you can but download all your drivers and burn them to a DVD. If you do not have SP1 on the Win 7 DVD the only options to install drivers are.



    SD card
    DVD

    Nothing else will work until you install the drivers.

    Also make your own recovery DVD's after you get all set up. Windows can do this or you can use Acronis true image home. "i use true image." You can also do this to make a new recovery partition based off your instal so after you get your system all set up you can make a recovery partition with it.

    If you need any help on this you can pm me or text me and i can guide you through it in real time but theirs a ton of you tube videos on how to use this software and its pretty easy.

    Put on USB key, that can be booted. SD Card, I don't know about. Any recent BIOS can boot a USB key, since the USB storage protocol is really simple.

    @bignazpwns. I know I could install win7 and reinstall drivers, but the question is: once all is installed could I create recovery dvds from this new win installation? Maybe @john_from_ohio is wrong but what he said sounds logic to me (unfortunately)

    Once you delete the recovery partition, there is no way to create the Recovery DVDs. AI Recovery will check if the recovery partition is present. If it is, then it will create the DVDs from that. If it is not present, you will get an error message saying the recovery partition is not present.

    Download the installer from Microsoft (it is legal) and install a bloat-free copy of Windows. Then get on the ASUS sight and download what you need.
