HP Laptop Recovery Parition "Not Found" error!

\015 I have a HP laptop with one physical HDD but with two logical disks: One, the C: and the other the Recovery partition named D:.\015\012One day, I wanted to test out Win7 RC without using Virtual OS tech.\015\012So I made myself another 50GB partition out of C:, renamed the new partition D: and renamed the Recovery Partition R:, and "hid" it.\015\012Now I wanted to create a recovery disk in case I crash my system.\015\012So I opened the Recovery Disc Creation Utility but it said that the recovery partition was not found. Doh! So I went and unhid the partition.\015\012But it still reported the same problem.\015\012So I went and googled the problem and somebody said that deleting the extra partition would help. So I did that. But it still had the problem.\015\012so I went and googled it again and somebody else said that marking the partition "active" in Disk Manager would solve the problem. So I did the thing, and it still had the problem.\015\012To make things more complicated, I still have my Windows 7 and Windows Vista option on my boot menu but on MSconfig or EasyBCD it says there's one entry: HP Recovery Manager.\015\012I searched up how to buy recovery CD's and the easiest way to buy is only available to those who are in the US or Canada. I am a Korean living in Papua, Indonesia. So what am I supposed to do??\015\012So here's my question: First of all, how do I get this partition back and second of all, how to I fix this OS entry problem?\015\012\015\012System Info:\015\012HP Pavillion dv6-1101ax\015\012Windows Vista Home Premium x86\015\012250 GB Physical HDD x1\015\0124 GB of DDR3 RAM (3GB Useable)\015\012AMD Athlon x2 QL-64 @ 2.1 GHz\015\012ATi Mobility Radeon HD4650 Graphics\015
