It may of been stupid of me, but in regards to this thread I had no clue on how to use gparted, so frustrated, I accidently reinstalled the OS basically doing a repair but got OS on C: Drive, this time. Got all the security programs installed but it wouldn't let me get MS updates. Long story short, I reformatted it, got everything on the C: Drive, all the MS updates are finally installed, IE 8 is working normally, but In My Opinion, all it lacks is a recovery partition. When I (re) boot up, I get two options using the up & down arrows & both options are for Windows XP Pro. I DO NOT have CD/DVD's to make a recovery disk so that option is out. In some of my past threads in here Broni has had me run something that installed a recovery partition. Yes, I'm fully aware XP is nearing its end of the line, but I know people still using Windows ME. Thanks, I hope I've got it right.
