Using the system recovery partition 
The system recovery partition quickly restores your Desktop PC’s software to its original 
working state. Before using the system recovery partition, copy your data files (such as 
Outlook PST files) to USB storage devices or to a network drive and make note of any 
customized configuration settings (such as network settings).
About the system recovery partition
The system recovery partition is a reserved space on your hard disk drive used to restore the 
operating system, drivers, and utilities installed on your Desktop PC at the factory.
DO NOT delete the system recovery partition, which is the partition without volume label 
on Disk 0. The system recovery partition is created at the factory and cannot be restored if 
deleted. Take your Desktop PC to an authorized ASUS service center if you have problems 
with the recovery process.

Using the Recovery DVD (on selected models)

PC. According to Microsoft, you may lose important data because of setting up Windows on 
the wrong disk drive or formatting the incorrect drive partition.

ON.
