Can anybody tell me what keys I need to press during the restart to bring up the system recovery? I have an HP Mini 1120NR and Edubuntu

From HP's site:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...roduct=3860346

Did you try to look in their manual?? From that page:
Quote:
  1. Turn on or restart the notebook, and then press the Esc key repeatedly while the F10 = BIOS Setup Options message is displayed in the lower-left corner of the screen. The System Restore page opens.
  2. Use the arrow keys to select System Restore , and then press Enter .
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to recover the system.
Be aware that a RECOVERY will totally wipe out everything on your drive. Did your laptop come pre-loaded with Edbuntu on it? If not...you'll wind up reloading Windows XP or whatever came on it when you bought it.

What problem are you trying to solve?

If you did your installation by cd you could posibly use the cd to boot into the system. I hope you weren't reformatting your disc and erased mbr. I whiped out my hd on my first linux installation.

Well, if the keys to get you into the recovery partition don't work, as EDDY1 said, your MBR/partition table may be gone. The only option you then have is to re-install via CD/DVD.

Often times, there are recovery discs that can be obtained from your manufacturer, that will rebuild your system (including the recovery partition). They are sometimes free, sometimes a small ($20) charge. However, if you've got a laptop....the power going out wouldn't make any difference at all, unless you had a dead/removed battery, and were just running off AC.
