Default Hidden partition!

Hey guys, im tryin to fix my g/f's computer and i've ran into a problem. Somehow i accidentally hid 99% of her hdd using foxconn built in system recovery and now i can't get it to do anything! when i try using the "unhid partition" in system recovery it says i don't have a valid hdd (i guess since it only registers as having 82 mb on it. but i've put the hdd in my brothers computer and tried partition magic on it and it only shows 82 mb to. i tried running killdisk on it and still only shows 82 mb. how do i fix it? thnx, help appreciated asap, im on a tight schedule to get back 2 college >.<

Go to the drive manufacturer's website and download their hard drive utility software. It can diagnose any problems and reformat or even return the drive to it's original state.
