    Type Recovery on your start screen and the recovery wizard will show up. You need a 32GB stick for 64bit - or many DVDs, LOL. 32bit Instant Go devices need 8GB, other 32bit I don't know.

    i make a usb with create recovery drive option same as you did, but when the operation has finished then reinstall for me the Windows 8 Enterprise. From the 25gb partition of my 32gb Tablet pc. My tablet have 4 partitions. 2 bettwen 10-300mb recovery partition and primary partition


    I want to install on the big partition (primary partition) the recovery partition. It contain install.wim file



    HoW to apply it to primary partition?

    I think i need to burn it to any device,


    1 i try to go control panel - recovery - make recovery media - check box to also copy the recovery partition (same as you did) but when device setup complete all task my tablet do not return to Factory defaults settings stored on recovery partition. they return to Windows Enterprise because i make the recovery usb drive in Windows 8 entéprise (on my Tablet, not return to Factory defaults) (touchscreen dont work and also do not have virtual keyboard... and so much more)

    2 i make bootable winpe, with customrefresh.wim (install.wim of my Tablet.. i change the name to it) i launch winpe, it shows me cmd i launch Windows setup, but it tell me install.wim is not present in device.

    3 i try to check health status of recovery partition and fix it if is corrupted, but command line shows me all are okay
    with power iso, i try to open it and tell me is not correct format or invalid image.
    7-zip open .wim file, but only shows to me 5 .msi installer(updates or anithing)

    4 - read the first post.they have the issue i related with dism, imagex, recimg....... Now i go to try other time to see any change and post here


    asume i only have the recovery partition untouched

    'in the primary partition i make much changes since i buy my table 1 moth ago, reinstall, format...


    Tell me any way to perform fix pls

    2- tell me how to restore Windows to Factory defaults with winpe and install.wim.

    3 - tell me any issue related to dism imagex recimg (paste link to tutorial thath really work) if not work do not paste... try it first i search over a days google and bing but i do no repair my Tableton!!!!

    4 - tell me other ways to burn, or manipulate(extract) .wim image

    Dism /Get-ImageInfo /imagefile:M:\Images\install.wim /Index:1

    Run that command from the command prompt(admin) - changing the drive letter and folder - to your path to the install.wim

    Also from Cmd(admin) type

    diskpart
    list volume
    select disk 0
    list partition
    exit
    reagentc /info

    What INSTALL.wim are you using? And from where did you get it??

    And when did you make the Customrefresh.wim? win8 or enterprize?

    The biggest issue I think you are facing is that your Tablet may be using WimBoot images - because if you over wrote the Install.wim - you are pretty much done..

    As you said, nothing works, thats because the drivers need to be preinstalled into the boot wim and install wim files before being applied to the disk..

    You just can not clean install most newer tablets, without really screwing them up..

    Customrefresh.wim is install.wim file that ive backup it last with macrium reflect from the genuine recovery partition on my Tablet. I only change the name to make winpe. For other task leave it and do not rename. My tablet run Windows 8

    I do not use wimboot images, but if is the deal to fix my computer i wan try. I read Microsoft site how to make wimboot image if you know size of partition, but first i want try dism, imagex recimg winpe or winre
