View Full Version : [ubuntu] safe to delete recovery partition?

September 21st, 2008, 05:48 AM
I bought recovery DVDs for my VAIO computer. Can I delete the recovery partiton or will that mess up my computer?

the only thing i'm concerned about is that the recovery partition comes before my Windows partiton, so my boot.ini file reads:

[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn

notice it says partition 2, so i guess partition 1 is the recovery. could that mess up my computer??

If you don't plan on reinstalling windows, go ahead, and delete your recovery partition. You never know, restore cd and dvd have a habit of being in the way until you need them, then they seem to disappear.:)
