Restoring original partitions on Medion 8080

  Moseslawn 15:17 13 May 2007

I have lost the original partitions and recovery files on my Medion 8080 so the recovery disk will not work. I can use a program such as Partition Magic to reinstate the partitions I suppose, but I need the recovery files. Could anyone please help? Many thanks.

With the Medion, you should have received 2 Master CDs. Product Recovery CD and a Support CD.
If you are receiving any German error messages, (Festplatte ist für HDcopy schriebgeschützt, Bitte erst friegeben) Run Fdisk /MBR, or if you have something saying that a file is missing, recover the PC using the Recovery CD then install the Support cd once into Windows.
If you wipe all partitions, just run the Recovery CD which is basically a Windows XP CD.

As the recovery program is on a hidden partition normally,why not try Testdisk to recover the data and then the partitions. click here
