I will be most grateful if anyone can help -
Messing about deleting empty partitions on my Samsung Ativ 700t and I think I deleted an important partition.
Foolishly I thought it would only need the main C: one as that said it had all the boot files and system etc so I deleted the rest - there was 6 or 7 apparently empty recovery partitions I wiped.
.... But now it will not boot.
I have booted into my recovery USB I made which I thought would fix any probs but
Refresh says the drive is locked
Reset says a required partition is missing
Re-image cannot find a system image
Startup repair could not repair my PC
I went into diskpart and there is just one partition now
Partition 1. Type primary. Size 58GB. Offset 929Mb
I have a feeling it has (or had) some new complicated setup that used extra partitions which it had no more.
I also realise now that it had no coa windows key externally so I can't just reinstall and also I think it used some info in other partitions so I could access Samsung software.
Oh dear. Can anyone help me fix this or at least explain what it is I've messed up as I thought I only needed my main partition with boot and system files
