    KYHI,

    I also noted that in my Disk Management screen shot there appears to be multiple partitions for recovery, are all of thee needed or have they duplicated?

    Thanks

    try

    Reagentc /setreimage /path \\?\GLOBALROOT\device\harddisk0\partition5\Recovery\WindowsRE\ /Target C:\Windows

    you have an eom setup with an upgrade - thus all the partitions.....

    So again I ask > what is it you are trying to do ???

    I assume reset PC back to Factory Settings...

    Hi,

    I tried this twice as I was unsure if there was a space between Target and C:\Windows

    Yes I have owned this tablet from new, it came with Windows 8 and then I upgraded it to Windows 8.1 sometime ago. My main objective is to get the recovery working so I can reset the tablet back to factory settings.

    Thanks again for all you help

    Hi,

    D: HP_Recovery
    E: HP_Tools

    My main plan is to wipe this tablet clean and start again. I have saved all my files. The recovery now can find the location but it states that it cannot complete as there are missing files?

    Thanks

    Update;

    I have run "sfc /scannow" which identified that there were some corrupt files. Through a series of further commands these files were updated and a further scan now showed no further violations.

    Although I think the recovery partition path is correct, I still get the error that that some files are missing.

    Any help in resolving this in order to re-install windows would be greatly appreciated.

    This tablet may be seen on eBay later as "Sold for Parts" if I cant sadly sort this out.

    Thanks,
