Medion Recovery CD

  zipman 15:10 31 May 2005

My new Pc a Medion MS7046 came with a recovery CD that would allow me to get my system back the way it was shipped. \it also came with a Windows XP system disk, after a couple of times reseting it back to shipping order with the recovery disk, i got a bit cocky and decided to just install the Windows XP on its own, on trying to use the recovery disk, it now tells me that i can not use the disk again to set it back to shipping order, is their any way out of this silly mistake i have made ?

When you install XP did it format the drives?

Have you still got the D:\backup drive or E:\Recovery drive?

This is one case for Creating a Acronis True Image before trying things out

And it's one you can duplicate, as Medion is only a Image but they use Ontrack to create it. Get your OS loaded and Programs Get it running as you want the create your own Restore Image

My Medion 8080XL has the recovery files stored in the E drive. They are named factory.pqi and several factory.00x files. My user manual advises you back these up for such a situation. I am not familiar with your Medion but you could ask on the forum mentioned or click here
to see if anyone has the factory files for your machine.

I have just done a search for E:\Recovery drive. but it does not show anything for it.

So there is only the C: drive shown in My Computer? Looks like you have removed the partitions :(

No doubt Medion would be able to provide the factory files for a charge.
