    using Knoppix 7.0 to access Recovery on Vista ult. Have run sudo gparted.

    I'm learning Knoppix slowly. My Vista ult. boot dies with a black screen, and movable mouse cursor. I read here about sudo gparted and thought I'd give it a try. results; Partition File Sys Mount Point Label Size Used Unused Flags
    /dev/sda1 fat16 /media/sda1 Dell Util. 39MiB 7.02MiB 32.17MiB diag.
    /dev/sda2 NTFS /media/sda2 Recovery 10GiB 4.49GiB 5.51GiB
    /dev/sda3 NTFS /media/sda3 OS 203GiB 56.4GiB 146.43GiB Boot
    /dev/sda4 extended 1.53MiB lba
    /dev/sda5 NTFS /media/sda5 Linux 19.53GiB 90.93MiB 19.44GiB
    /dev/sda3,4,5 have key symbals next to them, (locked?). sda2 Recovery looks like it may help me fix Vista? How do I activate it, mount it, or, what ever??? sda5 was labelled Linux months ago when learning Linux products was "just wondering about it".
    Can I use Knoppix to activate that recovery partition?

    I think you do not need knoppix, only google

    Code:
    Dell System Recovery Partition Hotkey & Instructions (Dell PC Restore):
    
    To access the recovery partition on your Dell computer for recovery, follow the steps listed below.
    1. Power on the computer
    2. At the Dell logo, hold the Ctrl key and press the F11 key simultaneously.
    2. The Dell PC Restore screen will come up.
    3. Select Restore or use the Tab key to highlight it and press Enter.
    4. if you wish to continue, click Confirm, or use the Tab key to highlight it and press Enter.
    5. When the utility is finished, click Finish, or use the Tab key to highlight it and press Enter.
