  1. Win 10 Explorer No Longer Shows Recovery Partition


    Notebook came with 2 internal drives. One an HDD platter and the other a speedy SSD PCI Express NVMe. Shortly after purchase in Dec of last year I used the media creation tool and downloaded the win 10 iso and installed it on the HDD platter which allowed me to dual boot either from the HDD or the SSD. Both drives on their respective boot ups show the C and D drives along with the Recovery partition. This past weekend I removed the slow HDD platter and put in a slightly more speedy SAMSUNG EVO 860. Prior to doing that I imaged the C drive the one with the SSD PCI Express NVMe and included all three of the partitions of the drive in the backup, the healthy large boot drive, the 200MB first drive as well as the 1GB Recovery partition. The imaging was successful and I can still dual boot and the EVO is much much faster than the HDD platter as expected. The only slight hiccup when I boot now from either the original SSD PCI Express NVMe or the EVO 860 I no longer see the recovery partition in explorer. It does show up however in disk management but I see no way to make it visible again. This is not a deal breaker but I just like seeing it there in explorer.

    I looked at this page:

    https://www.disk-partition.com/artic...tion-5740.html

    ..and tried this suggestion ->In most cases, the recovery partition is hidden by default in case of unintentional deletion and formation, and you can’t see the recovery partition in Windows Explorer (File Explorer), the only way you can see the partition at that time is Disk Management. Just go: This PC>Manage to open Computer Management, then select Storage> Disk Management.

    But did not see any way to unhide it. The other two suggestion diskpart and AOMEI I would like to avoid if possible. Thanks in advance.

    Help with HP System Recovery partition

    I will try and cut this short:

    So i have this HP pavilion DV5-1987 laptop, that came with windows vista home premium 32bit. A couple of months later i installed a 64bit version, and about a week ago i installed Windows 7 x64 RTM. Both installations was a fresh install on the C partition, leaving the recovery partition intact and alone.
    Now i have regrettet and want the original os to be reinstalled. But it doesnt work.
    The bios options does nothing, i press ESC to get to boot options, choose F11 for boot to recovery partition, and it goes straight to windows 7.
    i search the internet for options and try these suggestions:
    Mark drive D as active partition (the rec partition). it still boots to win 7.
    boot to super grub from a boot cd, and press "AUTO MAGIC BOOTER" (something like that). it then shows me two identical "vista boot loader" to choose from, and both goes into win 7, and a third (other OS) that gives me and error and returns to grub loader.

    there a several other suggestions but either they wont work in my scenario or are another iteration of what i have already tried.

    So uh... help? please? if you need anymore information please ask.
