Gotta luv a guy who still knows his way around DEBUG!! (Cute little recursion, BTW, with the two G=100 steps.) I'm wondering, though, if there was some particular reason you decided to change to the '1C' partition type? Unless I'm overlooking something, you should have been able to use "E 3D2 DB
" in HIDE.DBG instead of "E 3D2 1C
" and then you wouldn't have had to hack the Dell MBR at all. Also, lurkers should be cautioned that, as posted, HIDE.DBG is accurate only if the recovery partition is listed second in the partition table. If the recovery partition is listed third or fourth, the lines:
E 3?E 00 E 3?2 1C
should be adjusted at the ?'s for the correct table entry per mabsark's legend for the assembly code. Dan Goodell www.goodells.net/dellrestore
