    Now it does look correct with partitions layout. At this point I suggest that you make a backup of the BCD store then use Visual BCD to repair: Visual BCD Download

    NOTE: If you are running 64 bit, Visual BCD will pop up an error message at the beginning, just ignore it. From the Menu, click on Repair->Repair BCD

    Type reagentc /info and post the result.

    I dont see any duplicate {bookmgr} in the Visual BCD (see attached screen shot). Run 'repair' in Visual BCD anyway. I am sending the result of reagentc /info.

    C:\windows\system32>reagentc /info
    Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) and system reset configuration
    Information:


    Windows RE status: Disabled
    Windows RE location:
    Boot Configuration Data (BCD) identifier: 76d67320-3c71-11e4-8226-c8d0021f90
    3f
    Recovery image location:
    Recovery image index: 1
    Custom image location:
    Custom image index: 0


    REAGENTC.EXE: Operation Successful.

    Updated partition 5,6 with gpt attr.

    As a test, tried to run:

    C:\windows\system32>reagentc /setreimage /path \\?\GLOBALROOT\device\harddisk0\p
    artition1\Recovery\WindowsRE
    REAGENTC.EXE: The Windows RE image cannot be stored in the specified volume. Use
    the RETAIN command in DISKPART to prepare the volume and try again.

    I have not used the path description since I haven't had a situation to do so, but I will a little later. But someone in another forum said it should work.

    Since it doesn't seem to be working, you will need to put a drive letter on it again to set this up. Use the R: or T: type letter and not one that might be used by another device.

    This is what I suggested in this thread:
    Could not find recovery environment

    Well, I have been playing and will provide the results. I am not suggesting you do anything, but maybe it will help.

    For the sake of brevity, I will just say I messed up my system and then tried to reset it back to the original configuration. I had no problem using reagentc to set the RE image, even using the alternate path I mentioned earlier. But since you have already done that, I will just say I was still getting the Disabled indication in the reagentc /info listing. I checked the BCD store and everything looked normal, but it would not enable even though it said it was successful.

    So I decided to see if the Recovery Tools would work and used the PC Settings, Recovery to boot back into the Advanced options. After the reboot, I was presented with 3 options and chose the Troubleshooting one. Then the Startup Settings one where I was given the F8 options only. Since I did not want anything there, I went back to the first menu and choose "Continue to Window 8.1", which booted the system into Windows. When I checked the Reagentc /info listing, it was showing as enabled and the RE image location was indicating correctly.

    Things I noticed during the process. The original Winre.wim file, and the entire directory structure, had been removed from its original location. I do not know how this happened but I will being going through the process again to see if I can find out.

    Also, after the reboot was complete, the Recovery Partitions had been assigned drive letters. If I removed those in Diskpart, the Recovery option would go to Disabled again, so don't remove those if they show up. I will get back after some more testing concerning this.

    I will have more information by tomorrow. I never got the message you got with the alternate path related to the Retain option in Diskpart. Since that options seems to be related to a Dynamic volume not sure what would cause the message in your case.

    I just re-ran the test on the same install as before. This time I ran into no problems and the recovery system re-enabled without problems.

    Commands I used to switch the Winre.wim being used.

    reagentc /disable
    reagentc /setreimage /path \\?\GLOBALROOT\device\harddisk0\partition1\Recovery\WindowsRE
    reagentc /enable

    You might even want to try setting it to the 350 MB partition to see if that can be done.

    I did not have to set any drive letters. Why this time I encountered no problems, not really sure. I had removed the entries in the Registry which were setting the partition drive letters in the HKLM\System\MountedDevices section.

    I also noticed this time, the GUID number in the BCD store for the Recoverysequence changed where in the first test, it did not change.

    So, I will say, make sure you are supposed to be using partition 1 for your Recovery Tools partition. Then use Diskpart and do a det par on that partition and post the results. You can copy from the Command Prompt window by using the right click "Mark" option.

    If the partition looks normal, we can then run through the trying the recovery tools and see if that will allow the tools to be enabled.
