    What is missing is the registration of the factory (recovery) image on partition 8

    what you need to verify is the location of the factory Install.wim or Install.swm(s)

    right click start flag > command prompt(admin)
    type> diskpart
    type> select disk 0
    type> list volume

    You will see a lot of volumes without drive letters assigned.. Find the 20GB volume number
    type> select volume # (# being the volume number without a drive letter)
    type> assign letter=R
    type> exit (to exit diskpart)

    You can now browse thru R and find Install.wim or Install.swm(s) - those are your Factory recovery Images..

    type> reagentc /disable

    Note: Assuming the install* file(s) are on "R" and in a folder called "RecoveryImage"
    Note: Change "drive letter" and "folder name" to suit your system setup

    type> Reagentc /Setosimage /Path R:\RecoveryImage /Target C:\Windows /Index 1

    type> reagentc /enable

    reboot PC

    You have set the "Path" to the Recovery Image...
    But you have no "Path" to the WinRE Recovery Tools...

    You are also following advise meant for another user and for a different PC...

    So lets start from the Top...

    Diskpart
    list disk
    Select disk 0
    List Partition
    Exit
    Reagentc /info

    Do you have a C:\Win81Recovery\install.wim ??

    Do you have a C:\Recovery\WindowsRE folder ??

    Ok, so you have a recovery partition R:|RecoveryImage... (factory image)
    you also have a C:\win81recoveryimage (unknown image)
    the image in C:\win81recoveryimage is the registered image

    to register winRE >

    Code:
    Reagentc /setreimage /path \\?\GLOBALROOT\device\harddisk1\partition2\Recovery\WindowsRE\ /Target C:\Windows
