    Recovery image index: 0


    Trying to create recovery drive in 8.1 and tutorials state include typing a command prompt that includes: INDEX:1
    but in REAGENTC.EXE/INFO i get: Recovery image index: 0
    Is it supposed to show 1? is the 0 index mean something is amiss?

    Hello Ruby, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    The tutorial below can help show you how to create a custom recovery image.

    Refresh Windows 8 - Create and Use Custom Recovery Image

    ...or did you want to create a reset recovery image instead?

    8.1


    Thanks for the links, I have tried both but get errors at #6 where it says to type in INDEX:1, my pc has INDEX:0 so I think something is missing, after typing in command prompt in those tutorials, I get "error 87" and a message, so need to find out how to fix the index 0 problem first.

    Ah, ok. In that case use the command with the index as 0 instead of 1.
