    Window 8 Recovery & Restore issue


    Hi, I have a K55A Asus laptop, and I'm having some issues trying to restore it (refreshing it at his start). I have no CD for the recovery and when I try to restore my PC by the program Window8 instored (settings-> General -> Delete everything and reinstall Window) I get an error saying there is some files missing, so i'm kind of stuck here, anyone can help me please?

    Have you updated Windows 8 to Windows 8.1?
    If yes, Windows 8.1 will not use a Windows 8 OEM Recovery Partition.

    As you have a K55A Asus Notebook, try using the ASUS Hot Key Recovery, press the F9 key on start up.

    I tried that, and I also tried to do f2 then unable boot booter, but I have no Boot Booter, so f9 isn't working.
    So you're telling me that if I update from window8 to window 8.1, I won't have to do the recovery ?
