    Have it create a C partition and a D Partition, but i have looked into it and i think it is done in bytes and sectors. it is partioning instructions from a HP recovery DVD.


    Just figured it out

    is it a bootable dvd?

    if so you should still be able to get to the repair screen from booting the dvd then select the repair option and it will automatically restore boot files. if it can repair the problem it will if not it will tell you. also back up any important data you dont want to loose before doing this.
    once it repairs then use easybcd to setup dual boot, if you are dual booting.

    Would you mind sharing what you did to figure these numbers out?? I have the factory recovery on a USB drive that was originally for a Inspiron 1750 with a 500gb drive and now I have a different 1750 with a new blank 320gb drive in it. I was able to get past the part that said I need a bigger hard drive just by changing the Disk_Size= value to 320070479872 , but I'm sure the Starting_Offset= and Partition_Size= need to be changed too. But currently I am getting a 0x400110020000100A error message when it tries to create the partitions in the Dell DataSafe Recovery. Here is the ORIGINAL CPS.dat file for the 500gb. Please let me know what I need to change the values to for a 320gb Seagate Momentus Thin ST320LT007

    Thanks!!

    Woohoo!! I got it to work! I determined the 320gb drive was 625142448 sectors and multiplied that by 512 bytes per sector which gives me 320072933376, so I put that in the Disk_Size= field. I had to change the [PART0003] Partition_Size= in the CPS.dat file to shrink the original C partition from 479526412288 to something well within the remaining space after the recovery partition was to be created so I just made it 270803602944 and it ended up creating the C partition at about 252.21gb with 26.72gb unallocated after it. It took a while to format in the recovery, I thought I was stuck. Then all I had to do is expand the partition in Disk Management and it was all good!
