Can you use Active@ to over right a restore partition as I have purchased a netbook and now that I have customised how I want I was wondering if I could create an updated version of the restore partition. I have just made an image of it and put it on my server but would be nice to have the option of restoring if away from home

Never tried it, but I cant see why not.

If the restore partition is a Image made by Active@ you would still need to use the bootable CD or USB drive to operate it.

Normally a OEM restore partition, you would press a key combo, or something like, F10 on startup, this would then boot into the recovery and give the option to restore the OS as per the original Factory install- Active@ wouldn't do that, as far as I know.

Edited: may write a letter and ask - looked through the Manual and cant see anything that will actually say.

I read this before post earlier on and been having a look around with no real positive answer -- Might be time to have a play :nerd:

I'll get back to you and advise.
