Ok got it, so if I do run in to trouble and it asks to insert DISC 3, then what should I do?
I doubt that many people have any idea. Recovery partitions and disks were pretty rare before Vista. Usually PCs with XP pre-installed came with an XP installation CD and, sometimes, with an additional CD or two with drivers or utilities.Does anyone think it will restore with 2 CD's?
Then give up... lol Windows XP is not that big.
If you deleted the partitions to install Windows 7, then that may be why... or the Boot Sequence was changed not include the partition.... it's been too long ago for me to remember.Yes you are right. Thank you! Actually my IBM PC did come with a recovery partition but the F11 prompt does not come up when booting up. This started happening after doing a clean install of Windows 7.
