I have a problem when using genet's method. After running ApplyImage.bat it begins applying image until 57% done it says:
Install-directories are separated in five pieces. Any advice to solve the problem?Code:Error 1392 The file or directory is corrupted or unreadable. The DISM log file can be found at X:\windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log File not found - Winre.wim 0 File<s> copied Boot files successfully created. REAGENTC.EXE: No valid image found in the specified path. Directory set to: \\?\GLOBALROOT\device\harddisk0\partition5\RecoveryImage REAGENTC.EXE: Operation Successful.
I have Lenovo G505s laptop with Windows 8.1 preinstalled and I'd like to change a new hard drive on it.
Hi. Stumbled across this site/thread whilst coming to a halt swapping a HDD to SSD in my kids Toshiba Satellite / Win 8 laptop.
I created a Windows 8 Recovery USB, swapped out the old HDD (600gb), popped in the new Samsung SSD (120gb) and ran through the Win8 Reset PC process. Stopped at the error message "Unable to reset PC. A required drive partition is missing" - then found this thread (esp GENET process).
Keen to give it a whirl...however my Win8 Recovery USB has a single file named INSTALL.ESD in the SOURCES folder - not install.wim or multiple install.swm files.
Am I going to hit a brick wall straight away if the file type is not the same as in GENET's instructions?
The fix isn't working for me. I'm getting 'Diskpart was unable to open or read the script file, Make sure the file you specified exists'.
Any help much appreciated as this is currently driving me up the wall.
