I had to do this once and recall that some of the instructions were in German [Medion is a German company]. I contacted them via email at click here and they could not have been more helpful - even sending me an emailon what I should do.

Unfortunately, since then I have deleted the email & moved on to another PC, so i no longer have this. However, as the nearer of bad news, I thought that I had used 3 ........

The recovery CD gives you a restore option, use that and it brings the computer and the partitions back to when you opened the box.

The Recovery CD gave options just like any normal install of XP would be. I have now deleted the Partitions, created 1 big one and got windows back on.

There was 2 FAT 32 partitions & 1 NTFS which I didn't think was a good idea, SP2 didn't go well, and totally dissagreed with the medion.
