Asus G53/G73 or any asus for that matter...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Can anyone with one of these or any asus laptop please post some screens of your Disk management window for me? The reason is I used acronis to make a back up and tried to restore from that and some how in the process got the paritions all screwed up where nothing works. So I am looking to find out three things.

What is the restore partition supposed to be? Logical or primary?

What is the Data partition supposed to be logical or primary?

and the OS partition is supposed to be active right?

Thanks... this is driving me nuts

All ASUS partitions are primary. The DATA partition (if you have one) will be logical. OS should be active.

G73 and G53 require recovery discs last time I checked, you would have to go through Windows to burn them and then restore. I don't think you can use the recovery partition (whoever came up with the idea to make a recovery partition that doesn't recover the computer should be fired).
