Hi, my gf had a 3year old medion laptop that is rather slow and, in my opinion, needs a fresh install. My problem is that the laptop only has a recovery partition and i am unsure of how to use this. Please can anyone help?
I have two Medions a XP Laptop and a Desktop both have a Restore and Full XP home cd. if yours came from Aldi you most likely only have a Restore CD. You start with the CD in the Drive and get a screen that gives three options to restore select with arrow keys and enter key
If you have lost the Restore CD only thing you can do is Ring Medion and see if you can buy a Recovery CD for your Model of Laptop. It will not work any other way than starting with the CD, it cannot be created using the Partition. As all the CD does is starts the Recovery Process that is a Image on the D:\ or as in my case E:\ Partition
PS the Partition is not Hidden on a Medion
