    'Windows RE Image was not found'

    Hello guys,

    I am unable to reset my Windows 8.1 completely. At first, it said that a 'required drive partition was missing', so I went to How To Restore a Deleted Recovery Partition in Windows 8 and followed their instructions:

    1) I created installation media for Windows 8.1
    2) I grabbed install. ESD file, and converted it to install.wim.
    2.5)I created a 'Win81-Recovery' folder in my C: drive.
    3) I opened op cmd and inserted the following: REAGENTC /SetOSImage /Path C:\Win81-Recovery\INSTALL.WIM /Index 1

    4) Upon checking reagentc, it says that my Windows RE Status is disabled. But if I want to enable it, it says that my windows re image was not found.

    So how do I go from here to resetting my Windows 8.1?

    How about just down loading the ISO from Microsoft, create a UEFI/GPT flash drive to install from then boot it and do a clean install?
