Why no make, model on the laptop in your message?
It could have been an easy fix of some f11 key during boot to perform a recovery. But without make or model I can't look into that.
Please answer my question in my first sentence then add in the missing information.
I am in this big problem and I would be very glad to hear from you...
I recently got a new laptop with 160GB hard disk with vista premium....I was using paragon partition manager to partition it...The partition process was taking place during the boot time and it was showing an hour remaining.
After sometime the laptop went to sleep and I could see the screen went dark and sleep light turned on...Not knowing if the partition was still happening I pressed the power on button and the laptop started again giving me message that 'Operation interrupted and please insert a recovery disk'. The only thing I can access is the BIOS...
I do not have a recovery disk and niether the vista cd as this was an OEM version pre installed. I had an XP cd which when I put shows the full partition as unformatted space.
From above...what do you think is the best way forward...Should I get the recovery CD? Should I install XP and format the partition I see(I had to disable SATA when installing XP)
