    Hi

    I bought a laptop a while back with a 100 Gig HDD. In a hurry to install Linux i did not make the recovery discs at first.

    I only made the recovery discs after Linux was installed and had partitoned 11 Gigs for XP and the rest for Linux including a 5 Gig HP partition.

    I want to now use the recovery discs to reinstall XP from scratch.

    Will the recovery install only on the 11 Gigs or will it wipe out the whole drive (as i want it too) and do a fresh install ?

    I know i can try this but i don't want to be back to square one if XP only sees the 11 Gigs.
