Hi Genet
Thanks for reply i worked it out yesterday late in night that i needed to enable secure boot in bios. I did that and got boot files and got windows installed from recovery backup but it isnt the one i had when pc came new. Only have 4 tiles in home screen and i still cant do recovery from F11 key original key for recovery for some reason recovery tile missing altogether i only have option for Refresh ,Repair, System Restore or Continue to windows as before i had and extra tile saying Recovery manager. I follwed post 13 very closely i had original recovery partition intact i still do but cant use it. When i boot up and press F11 the win logo comes and then after 6 seconds or so go back into windows screen. What i need is somehow to go into recovery so can restore back to factory but its not happewning at all i had 32 .swm files a total of 16GB in recovery partition but when used post 13 to recover from partition it just dint restore to factory instead i got at lot less software installed even i used another win 8 i would havr]e got alot software in way microsoft tiles in homescreen at moment only have 4 tiles Desktop, File Explorer, Internet Explorer, and Windows Store.

Very baffled any help appreciated please.
