    You can create partition structure with bootice:

    Rt click it > properties>unblock>apply>ok.

    Then unzip it directly onto your drive. You should have C:\REv20

    Rt click and run as admin on the runmeasadmin file inside.

    Thanks, I'm going to try. With v16 appears a winre.wim of 238mb, although in hide partition I have found an install.wim of 9.55gb. Does it work?

    Looks like it can find winre.

    That is thw beginning, it should go on to create an .iso file.

    Burn the iso to cd/dvd OR put on usb with rufus, OR boot the ISO\Sources\8x64winre.wim file directly from the HD (if you know how to do that).

    There are tools in it which you can use to apply the contents of the wim or .swm or .esd to your drive.

    If you have install.wim, winntsetup is probably easiest to use.


    Make sure you select the image you want:


    Tick the drive letter preassignment box, and select C :

    Is it ok?
    I've realized that I have some others Recovery Partition units (they are hide) and they are small.

    Have a look in REV20\ISO\SOURCES

    Pguru screenshots look ok. The install.wim will contain your factory osimage.

    I've realized when in cmd I put reagentc /info shows an error 3, I have replaced the xml file windows/ system32/ recovery , but I have the same error. With other commands it works.

    It does look a little strange you were having a problem resetting when it appears you had already done that 3 times.

    But you never checked your system the way I suggested in post #6. If you are having that problem, you may not be able to work around that situation.

    In the earlier link you provided earlier, post #72 looks at the problem. When the partitions are shown as OEM, the third party software can see them, but Windows cannot.

    list par

    This assumes you only have one hard drive, which would be disk 0
    I've checked an this is what I have.

    Also when I put reagentc /info... Appears an error 3, I have replaced with some others but I have the same.

    This is the file of reagent in my laptop.

    I don't know why... The easeus has changed some things:
    In picture number 1, with list volume I had Recovery, (volume 4) I didn't know about easeus, but after I used easeus the things change like picture number 2.

    The other thread, and a couple of others show these screenshots and suggests how to recover the partitions to a readable state.

    Easeus removes the volume information from the partitions so they don't show up in a Volumes listing. You will have to reapply the Partition Type Id to those partitions, or in my case, I had to change them to normal data partitions then reboot and change them back.

    The thread linked below also discusses the problem, and there are references for repairing your system on other forums. If you have questions about the procedures, let us know.
