the following happened:
I created a new and empty partition on my hp laptop and installed Linux on it. (I checked the partition on Windows and it said it's empty, but Linux told me that there is something on it.) After I installed Linux I wanted to go into Windows via the Linux grub. But Windows crashes at the startup animation (starting Windows) and I get the blue screen.
I can see all the files from Windows when I use Linux. But not the former HP Recovery device, therefore I sadly cannot recover my system in that way.
I tried bootrec to fix the problem:
Bootrec /fixmbr - works
bootrec / fixboot - works
bootrec /rebuildbcd - does not work
with the linux-partition manager GParted I can see the following:
/dev/sda1 unknown 992.50 KB unknown (possible former HP Recovery device)
/dev/sda2 ntfs 199.00 MB System (flagged as boot)
/dev/sda3 ntsf 397.19 MB (my Windows installation)
/dev/sda4 ext4 68.73 MB (my Linux installation)
When I use the Windows recovery disk or want to make a new installation Windows can't identify my hard-drive.
I checked on microsoft's page:
They recommend to download the driver of the hard drive and to load it in the installation. I did so on HP's homepage (in German) for my "Intel Rapid-Storage Technology, but I get the error message "specific location does not contain information about your hardware".
Here are my specifications for my computer:
I am desperate to get my Windows back, but how if the hard drive is not detected by Windows?
