vista basic sp1 - recovery disc



I have lenovo with vista home basic sp1 and they don't give me the recovery
disk and gives the option one key recovery ( not so good ), and i am using
dual booting with linux, when i want to remove the linux it asks for recovery
disk to clean the boot sector, -- so please help me how to get recovery disk
from vista sp1 and also help how to increase the size of the primary
partition i.e C it is only 30 Gb, for me it is too low.

Since Lenovo chose not to supply these (did you contact them and ask?),
you'll need to obtain a disk on your own. Either copy a friend's or purchase
a generic oem disk.

To use Vista's disk management tool to expand the volume, the free space
must be immediately after it as seen in diskmgmt.msc. If it is, then simply
right click it and choose expand. If not, you will need to use a third party
tool to manipulate and slide the volumes around so that it is (no tool can
expand a volume forward, the space must be behind the target volume). Ones
that can do this include BootIT NG from terabyteunlimited and Acronis' Disk

Best of Luck,
