    I take that one of the partitions you deleted was the ASUS Recovery Partition?

    How did you make Recovery image?
    You should have a Bootable Recovery disk, use this to boot the PC up, & Restore the image.

    How did you make Recovery image?


    This is for Windows imaging.

    Boot the Bootable Repair CD/USB disk from the uEFI DVD/USB drive

    Thanks.
    I created the recovery disk usinf win8 recovery tool.
    I think this is different to recovery image. From the menu I choose the recover instead of using the advanced options.
    And like i said before, I had tested it before.
    Do you know what are the requirements for that recovery?

    This looks to be for OEM's only.
    Check in your manual.
