Hello Experts,
I had a major Hard Drive crash on my SONY VGN-SZ notebook, and after a lot of work (and money) they managed to recover the data from that HD. On the crashed HD there was a recovery partition, and they also managed to save the data from that partition. My question is, how do I re-create this partition on my new HD? What should be the file format etc? Name? Order on current HD (first?). I would like to get it working so that when I press F10 at startup I find the possibility to run VAIO System recovery (wich I do but when choosing this I receive a NO RECOVERY partition found Error Message)  Is this possible?

Thank You in advance..
