    Hi! Could you please guide me through the process you did? I seem to be stuck at a Please Wait screen with spinning dots after doing an restore.

    Hi again.

    So far, so good. After using this version and creating the WinPE and ran it from an USB, I could suddenly select *.wim which the program had found and it went through the proces of formatting the drive and restoring the only image I could choose, and at the end I could reboot.

    My Asus XC550CC starts up with "Please Wait" and spinning dots for about 10 minutes, and then suddenly stands at a login screen where it says "Other User" and you need to login, but no matter what I write anything works. I tried to boot from the USB again and can see in Explore that there is something on the C drive, so something has it done, but why dosen't it go through the process as if it was a computer I had just bought and I have to install?

    Am I missing something in this process or doing something wrong?

    Best regards SilentDK

    Hi there,

    I have an Asus VivoTab Smart and it came pre-installed with Windows 8. I updated to Windows 8.1 but now I am selling the tablet and need to get it back to it's original out of the box state. I am unable to reset the tablet as I get the error message that some files are missing and I need my recovery media to reset it. Can someone please help me out with this?


    Thanks

    Hi!,

    I ran into the same problem as you, not being able to use the recovery partition after Upgrade from the original Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 via Store. ASUS support told me that the update to 8.1 had blocked the recovery partition. I had to Return to manufactor (RMA) to re-install the factory image. Recently ASUS provided the Windows 8.1 drivers but I still cannot recover the PC.

    How far are you in solving this problem?

    I haven't managed to get anywhere on it unfortunately. Still stuck trying to reset it back to factory windows 8. Tried to follow everything said in the thread but wasn't able to download the file Siw2 had made for 32 bit as it didn't seem to be in the link posted.

    Strange, I did not see anything on the site that would have allowed to to reset to factory specs. But I did see one thing that would prevent it....

    Oh well, at least you have it working...
