    Can i use diskpart to remake the os partition?


    I am stuck and i am hoping someone here can help.

    i have a dell laptop with win 8 on it that it came win. the recovery partitions are intact etc. only thing not intact is the OS partition. the recovery of course fails because of the partition missing.

    is there a command i can type in diskpart to recreate the partition and succesfully restore the os with the recovery built in?

    We always assume you have made your Recovery Disks using the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Media Creator app the first day you had your new PC.

    You can use the Dell version of

    Dell - Support

    For partitioning.
    I would look for a 3rd party Partitioning,Backup & Cloning software, which fully supports Windows 8, uEFI, GPT & Secure Boot.
    Which is signed by Microsoft.
