This works perfectly man! Thanks!
The first "Vista" partition (sda2) seems to be a weird windows ntfs
stuff. When i boot it i get a weird windows error screen. Never saw
somethings like that. Maybe related to the black magic of the recovery
The second "vista" partition (sda4) is the recovery stuff of Compaq. When
