Is there someone here with experience creating bootable diskpart CD. I have no luck googling it (kept getting create bootable diskpart USB).

The HDD on the HP PC I am trying to fix turned unbootable after I did something stupid playing with Windows 10 Technical Preview.

I just ordered the Recovery DVD from HP. Will it work on a HDD with corrupted 100mb system partition?

Thanks

Edit: FYI: This machine does not support booting to USB drive.

So you're wondering if the corrupted 100 meg partition will interfere with the function of the recovery disks? And you're looking for a bootable cd with diskpart on it so you can delete that partition before attempting recovery?

Possibly one of the 'ultimate' boot cds will have diskpart on it. Assuming you have a SATA drive you'd probably want diskpart from a version later than XP.

Another possibility is to boot with a Vista or 7 install disk and let it proceed to the point where you can delete existing partitions. Delete the partition(s), save changes and reboot with the recovery disks. There's some links to windows 7 iso's in my # 2 here:

if you don't have the disk.

Thanks a lot and yes that's exactly what I am trying to do. The HP Recovery DVD I ordered should be here hopefully in the next few days. (HP notified me there is no USPS tracking number assigned to it.)

And yes I forgot all about UBCD. Went to the safer Softpedia site rather than Torrent to download and burn the ISO. The Softpedia site includes 12 screenshots none of which shows Diskpart. I will hold off doing anything until I get the HP disc,

The UBCD site lists all the software on the disk. Diskpart doesn't appear to be there but there are plenty of other options.

Such as those listed in this UBCD menu?

Awesome!! It's indispensable to have all those tools available in one place.

Anyway today (June 11) the US Post Office delivered the 5 Recovery CD set I ordered from HP on June 6th for only $30. I was told to expect it on or around June 16.

The reason for placing the HP order is to save myself $290 ($150 for OS Installation plus $140 for OEM Windows 7 Pro CD) that I would have spent had I took the PC to MicroCenter.

The HP set consists of 4 Restore CDs and 1 Supplement CD. I used them to wipe clean the HD and rebuild the 3 partitions (System (100mb) Drive C and Recovery Drive D settings with no problem. HP also gave me a phone number to call if the CD Recovery set fail to restore the HDD to factory settings.

I then went ahead and downloaded 219 Windows Updates.

Thank you DAVEINCAPS and Thank you riider for your help. I appreciated it a lot.

Happy Computing....

You're welcome. It's good the recovery disks were able to delete the partitions.

I then went ahead and downloaded 219 Post Windows 7 SP1 Windows Updates.

I started this at 11 PM last night - all in one shot. It lasted until after 6 AM this morning with FIVE reboots. No problem to report.

219 updates without it messing up once? That's gotta be a record. I'm glad it's working out.
