    since the 20 gig one, partition 8, is the one that is big enough to have windows on it, isnt that the one that winRe should be set to?

    Reagentc /setreimage /path \\?\GLOBALROOT\device\harddisk0\partition2\Recovery\WindowsRE\ /Target C:\Windows

    Since the 20 gig "partition 8" is the only one big enough to have windows on it, isnt that the one that should be the reimage path?

    Reagentc sets the location of WinRE ( Recovery Enviroment) and the Recovery OS Image locations..

    /Target C:\windows

    Tells winre to apply the recovery os image to c:\windows

    post 8, 8.1, 10 Upgrades... Possible to create Rec disc?

    So now that I see how badly MS and ASUS screwed up the "free" upgrades, I have finally gotten the 8.0 restore and finally windows ten installed.
    Not wanting to go through that 2 day process again I am wondering if creating a windows 10 restore disc or USB drive will even work. ie since after upgrades from windows 8 to 8.1 the restore to factory reset would not even work for going back to windows 8 or 8.1...
    So is it stupid to create a restore disc for windows 10 now, following the standard directions described everywhere, because the restore will not work because it is not originally a windows 10 OS?

    Windows 8.1

    Hi Guys,

    I'm having very similar problem with my Asus X550C. The difference is my Windows Primary OS partition has been formatted so I have no windows running on this laptop any more.

    So 2x option now:

    - complete clean install from Windows 8 DVD - not preferable
    - recovery of oryginal OS from recovery partition - preferable

    The recovery option from "F9" menu doesn't work saying no Recovery partition available but the recovery partition is still there as this one hasn't been formatted.

    How can I get this fixed?

    Hi guys,

    I have the same problem but managed to make a copy of the recovery image on a USB stick. However, it would not restore the SSD back to the factory state and said that the required partition could not be found. The USB stick had the install.wim image there.

    F9 could not find the Recovery Image in the last partition.

    reagentc /info Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) and system reset configuration

    Windows RE status: Enabled
    Windows RE location: \\?\GLOBALROOT\device\harddisk0\partition4\Recovery\WindowsRE
    Boot Configuration Data (BCD) identifier: xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx
    Recovery image location:
    Recovery image index: 0
    Custom image location:
    Custom image index: 0

    REAGENTC.EXE: Operation Successful.

    Help anyone?
