!! I am having similar problems too. so those files you have posted will they work for me too or are they windows specific. I am runnin windows 8.1 currently which was upgraded from windows 8. My laptop is asus. It originally came with windows 8.It did not had any recovery disk or any windows serial key behind it but it does have a windows recovery partition. i have created a recovery image and i have just seen the image of the source folder that you have shown. Your source folder is alot like mine. my source folder contains 5 install.swm but my source folder also does not contains those file you have mentioned and have attached to the post which ultimately solved this problem. so i wanted to know will they also work for me too?
