Re: [linux-dell-laptops] Windows question
- I have used the recovery CD that came with my i3800, and if I recall
correctly there are several options for the recovery. I believe that there
is a full recovery, partition recovery, and a windows reinstall option. The
windows reinstall option definately doesn't do anything to your linux
install, though it might not fix your problems, but is worth a shot anyways.
Hope this helps.
