    Pc Recovery & Recovery partition RETTEN.EXE

    Pc Recovery & Recovery partition RETTEN.EXE 21st Dec 08 at 10:41 AM
    I want to rebuild my Pc, I have backed up all my data.
    It's a MICROSTAR pc (german make) which has an E: RECOVER partition.

    This partition has a program & image to rebuild the Pc called RETTEN.EXE

    I can't find how to run the recovery/rebuild process.

    I have booted off the Recovery Cd, 1st screen selected option to recover, 2nd screen entered word "start" then enter.

    But it does not continue, comes up with message:
    "Festplatte ist fur HDCOPY scheibgeschutzt bitte erst freigeben"

    I have checked this message on Altavista Babelfish translation, doesn't seem to tell me much:
    "Non removable disk is fur HDCOPY scheibgeschutzt please only releases"

    Any ideas how to get it going, as Recovery partition is on my hard drive in E: partition, so should be able to do it ??
