    try hitting f12 on bootup to get boot screen,and maybe recovery option will show there .
    ,if no, then try f2 or what ever key it shows when you turn on the laptop to enter bios /setup,and look for option to turn on f12 boot option ,mine shows in bios security section .

    With P1 'highlighted' press Enter then arrow down to 'enable' and press Enter again.
    Check option 2 as well.

    Switch off the laptop, disconnect the mains, remove the battery and press power button for 20-30secs, leave it to rest for a while then connect the mains and try starting it, I did this a long time ago and it fixed the problem, can not guarantee but worth a shot.

    I have not tried that, but i've made so other progress.

    I downloaded a windows 8 iso and installed with a bootable USB Stick... I guess now it works but i'm not quite happy with it.

    One interesting thing i noticed though while installing was that i have a couple partions labelled "Recovery" one of them is 10gb in size where 2.x gb is free!! So around 8gb of stuff, i mean that can only be windows right? But how the f... do i access it

    Anyway for now i'm going to get some sleep i can provide screens when i wake up if necessary

    I give up. I've spent 20some hours trying to fix this bs, with little to no progress. i'll call support monday morning and most likely drive down and hand them the laptop to fix their shitty recovery they most likely messed up in the first place...

    Anyway, thanks for your time...

    I have not seen a pre-installed system configured as you show. Is there a chance you moved your install to the SSD?

    Using the reagentc /info command in an administrative command prompt would show us where the Recovery Image is supposed to be located.
