    I didn't see an option for that, only visitor messaging..

    Maybe because I'm a new member?

    You just need HERE.zip. Unzip it and burn the iso to cd/dvd or extract to flash drive. I you don't know how to do that , use rufus

    Find the osimage on your restore partion and point at it with reagentc command.

    The osimage might be install.wim. More likely to be Install.esd.

    It will be big about 3gb.

    If you can't see it in windows explorer, you can see it using Partition Guru.

    When you know where it is, you point at it like this:

    1) Rt clik on Windows\System32 and open a commnad prompt.

    Type resgentc /info, then press enter.

    Hiopefully you will see that reimage is successfully listed.

    Point it at the directory ( folder ) containing your osimage like this:

    Reagentc /setosimage /path driveletter:\folder-containing-osimage /index 1 /target driveletter:\Windows

    Ok, should i use the restore partition or recovery partition?

    Restore is 20 Gb and recovery is 600Mb

    The install.wim I found on the restore partition is 11GB

    the 11gb is the factory recovery image
