    Many thanks for your links above. After much hair loss, I finally got what I wanted and that was a fresh install of Windows 8, using the Recovery Partition. At least I have the relevant software/drivers installed and accompanying Asus apps that came with the system. I just have to install the hundreds of Windows updates now and update any necessary drivers! Best wishes,
    Ken

    extract like this:


    Attachment 35428

    you will have this:


    Attachment 35424

    put your 8.0 winre here:


    Attachment 35425


    Run as admin on cmd file:


    Attachment 35426




    It will ask if you want to d/l recuva to be included. Up to you.

    It also asks if you want to make an iso. Up to you.

    After it has finished ( about 2 mins) you will see a folder called iso.

    Copy all the folders from inside that (not the iso folder itself - all the folders from inside it ) onto your fat32 formatted flash drive.

    Attachment 35427

    Then copy your install.wim, or install.swm files into the sources folder on the flash drive.

    That's it.

    Boot it up and you will get a menu. To install from .swm files, click the SWMINSTALL button on the menu. Browse to the Install.swm file. You will want to select the image called Push Button Reset or similar, it is probably image 2.
    Hi SIW2, after reading much here, I can't get your RE64v7i.zip because deleted from dropbox, I need it to recover my ASUS Win 8 OS from recovery partition
    hope you can help me

    Glad I could help. I was checking if upgrading to Windows 10 would cause similar issues to recovery partitions, and I found this official Asus workaround for Windows 8 users. Best wishes to you too. Peace and good

    Can someone upload the install.wim file? I acquired an Asus s500ca laptop that had Ubuntu on it. I'm trying to get it back to factory settings. I installed a non oem copy of 8.1 but the touchscreen would not work. So I need the original software.

    We can't upload that. Your best bet is to try option one here,

    I kinda figured that but it was worth a try. I ended up grabbing a fresh 8 copy. Thanks, One question though, has anyone gotten the touchscreen working on this model?

    Windows 8.1 (64bit)


    I've spent the whole day going through this thread and trying various possible solutions. I too have bought an ASUS laptop with win8 preinstalled and later upgraded to win8.1.
    I'd like to factory reset my laptop but have had so much trouble. I would greatly appreciate any pointers. I have attached several screenshots.
    I have three 'recovery' partitions.
    - 20GB [contains the recovery image folder with "install.wim" in it] {mounted as R using diskpart}
    - 350MB [contains the "recovery\WindowsRE" path that reagentc is looking for. ] {mounted as T using diskpart}
    - 900MB

    From what I have read on this forum already, I think I have configured 'reagentc' correctly with the RE Location path on partition5 and image location path on partition 7 [see screenshot]

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes.

    But if you have an ASUS computer, then you should use the Asus Backtracker utility.

    your winre is set to the new windows 8.1 RE (5) when it should be (2)

    Code:
    reagentc /disable
    Reagentc /Setreimage /Path \\?\GLOBALROOT\device\harddisk0\partition2\Recovery\WindowsRE /Target C:\Windows
    reagentc /enable
    reboot and create recovery media via control panel > recovery > create recovery media - to test..
    if copy "Recovery Partition" is available able to make recovery media - You can then Reset PC back to factory
