Unable to use built-in ASUS recovery partition

  1. #391


    Gentlemen,

    I would like to thank everyone that has contributed to this thread. However, I too have run into the same issues as OP and then some (restoring issue missing partition, F9 didn't work, windows recovery didn't work). I have the BSOD error ending in 225, I can not acces windows at this point, 32 bit windows 8 pro (8.1 automagically installed itself and jacked up my aesus g75vx), I have win 8 burned to a dvd but gets stuck at 23% and won't install, i have acces to cmd and bios but reagent command does not work in cmd as admin.....really need to fix my rig asap. Can anyone helo me out? All I have is the command line to work with. Please feel free to explain it to me like I'm 5.

    Thanks

    Thanks KYHI


    I'll look into that now. Hopefully it's something I can burn to DVD and boot from because I am unable to access windows on my ASUS.

    Hello all.. I have the Asus X501A that came with Windows 8 and I upgraded to Windows 8.1 thru the store. I would like to be able to do a clean install of Windows 8 however, my factory reset options no longer work. I am in the same boat as many others that have posted in this thread. Unfortunately, a lot of what is being posted is just over my head. I realize that several workarounds have been posted but I just can't seem to follow along with them. I have attached an image below listing all of the partitions. Can anyone help?

    Create installation media for Windows 8.1 - Windows Help

    Just Clean install windows 8.1 instead.. that software will read your windows 8 key and install windows 8.1.. No more store upgrades..

    Thanks for the link. Is there any downside to doing it this way?

    The only downside of doing a clean install of windows is losing all the oem bloatware the came pre-installed on the pc.. although not really a bad thing..

    You may have to download a few oem drivers though...

    but between 8 and 8.1 no downside..
