Please help me out i have hp pavilion n012tx laptop with preinstalled win 8. It has only one partition of 900gb on which os is installed. I wanted to create the partiotion of the disk but i was told by the cust. care that if i create the partition, the recovery partition of the windows will corrupt and auto recovery will not work. So can anyone tell me is there any way to create partition without corrupting recovery drive. Please help as you can

Why do you need another partition?

Hi

 

It is always a good idea to create a separate partition for data storage. If your laptop came with Windows 8 OEM version installed, the partition scheme will be GPT and it is very easy to create a new partition using Disk Management

 

What you need to do is just shrink the C drive and create a new partition using the free space.

If you are unfamiliar with this operation, i highly recommended to create and keep the system recovery disc set before partitioning as an insurance.

but when i told about this to hp care and asked that this will help me out or not. They told me that this will corrupt the recovery partition and if the recovery disc corrups in future i may lose the original os.

Hi

 

I never ended up corrupting the recovery partition by just shrinking the C drive. But as i said earlier, simply create and keep the recovery DVD set before partitioning. Then you will be able to restore original OS even if the partition table corrupted.
