Hello davidgermain, I'm not sure what you mean by a recover partition. I know we can not do a restore, and now I'm able to get on, but there are several issues such as, I'm getting a message that the "MSOEACCT.dll" is missing from the computer, and )x*1000101) creation of a shadow copy has timed out. Needless to say, I just unplugged the computer, because I notice that it gets very hot. Don't think I can fix it on my own, and if I take it in for repairs, not sure if it will be worth it. Thanks for all the feedback.
