This usually works with most modern recovery partitions. You'll need a
linux boot cd.
With a partition editor of your choice, mark your recovery partition as
the boot partition.
Install and old style dos mbr. There is probably a mbr only utility now
that will do this, but I've always used Lilo (which is on my rescue CD)
lilo -M /dev/sda
*note* this will break grub. If the rescue partition does not work, or
was not made to be bootable, this will render the system unbootable.
