    create recovery partition


    my sony vaio laptop model is VPCEH26EN.I recently installed windows 8 pro 64 Bit.I formatted whole hard disk and installed windows 8.I had a oem recovery partition when i bought this laptop with windows 7 preinstalled.By this hard disk partition ,i used to recover the whole windows to its factory condition by using F10 key.The recovery hard-disk partition was of only 11Gb.it contains the whole windows with some software already installed .But now i have no recovery partition now.So please tell how to create recovery partition with in 12GB for future purpose.The windows default system image creation usually taking 40 gb space.So its of no use.Please tell how to create a recovery partition which can be used to recover windows to its factory condition using F10 key in case of any error in future?????????????????

    1. Open the Windows 8 Control Panel. Windows 8 includes a tool to create a Recovery Drive and it's most easily accessible from the Control Panel.
    2. Tap or click on the System and Security link.
      Note: You won't see System and Security if your Control Panel view is set to Large icons orSmall icons. In your case, just tap or click on Recovery and then move on to Step 5.
    3. In the System and Security window, tap or click on the Action Center link at the top.
    4. In the Action Center window, tap or click on Recovery, located at the bottom of the window.
    5. You can also use some tool like aomei partition assistant to help you to create a recovery partition.
