Rescue CD doesn't boot on Acer TM 800 after deleting rescue partition - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi all I booted from net-inst (Woody) and partitioned my 40GB drive as follows: 200MB / 200MB /tmp 5GB /usr 1GB /var 23GB /home 5GB /win_c 5GB /win_d After installing sucessfully Woody (minimal version), I tried to boot from the ACER rescue-CD to restore Windows XP. And it couldn't even boot.. I came across an article which forbids to delete the rescue partition (for whatever reason). But now it's done, so I'm looking for a workaround. Maybe the rescue CD tries to access the Win95 FAT32-Partition (0c) (or even the rescue partition) and crashes very early due to the configuration. ...

    Default Rescue CD doesn't boot on Acer TM 800 after deleting rescue partition

    Hi all

    I booted from net-inst (Woody) and partitioned my 40GB drive as follows:

    200MB /
    200MB /tmp
    5GB /usr
    1GB /var
    23GB /home
    5GB /win_c
    5GB /win_d

    After installing sucessfully Woody (minimal version), I tried to boot
    from the ACER rescue-CD to restore Windows XP. And it couldn't even
    boot.. I came across an article which forbids to delete the rescue
    partition (for whatever reason). But now it's done, so I'm looking for a
    workaround.

    Maybe the rescue CD tries to access the Win95 FAT32-Partition (0c) (or
    even the rescue partition) and crashes very early due to the
    configuration. Does anybody have experienced a similar thing? How do I
    recover now?

    Cheers

    Go to your computer manufacture to see if they have a way to recreate
    the recovery partition. IBM and Compaq allow such recovery on their
    machines.

    Let's say your wedding ring falls into your toaster, and when you stick
    your hand in to retrieve it, you suffer Pain and Suffering as well as
    Mental Anguish. You would sue:
    * The toaster manufacturer, for failure to include, in the instructions
    section that says you should never never never ever stick you hand
    into the toaster, the statement "Not even if your wedding ring falls
    in there".
    * The store where you bought the toaster, for selling it to an obvious
    cretin like yourself.
    * Union Carbide Corporation, which is not directly responsible in this
    case, but which is feeling so guilty that it would probably send you
    a large cash settlement anyway.
