Restore PQSERVICE.

Ok, this is probably the third time i started a thread here and asking for help. I am really grateful for the service here. Especially to those who went out their way to help me (Hoggie ) But, once again, i found myself in another dilemma. I have the data in the PQSERVICE drive. but, its still not going to the eRecovery Setup! Im clearly missing a vital key of information here. I put PQSERVICE as fat32, and i put it hidden. But, its not called "PQSERVICE", its called "disk-1" and so-far, i am unable to change it because Ubuntu doesn't allow to rename a volume label to a specific name (that im aware of, through hours of searching the web) Will it still boot the PQSERVICE under a different name? If someone can answer me that, it would help ALOT! second, do i have to WRITE the data back to the "Disk-1" a.k.a PQSERVICE or COPY it? And will it make a difference?
