    Problems with recovery partition in ASUS with Windows 8


    I have some problems with my laptop ASUS K55VD. I had windows 8, but with the store of windows I have updated to windows 8.1.

    I have tried to use the recovery partition, but every time I try appears a message. Failed to reset your computer. A partition of unity necessary is missing.

    And in Computer Management appears this.

    Then googling recommend to use EaseUS Partition, and some many things change. In the beginning, I had the same 3 partions in red and I don't know what happened.

    But in diskpart change too, and I only have 4 volume, and it have dissapeared the recovery partition, and I don't know why?

    Before to use EaseUS partition I have created a USB booteable with 9.79gb, and I had this:

    But, in this days I have tried to create the USB booteable again, but I can't. And everytime I have tried to run the usb, appears to select the language, the keyboard, and then appears the same windows with troubleshoting and turn off (it returns at the previous windows in blue)

    So I have tried to apply the recovery partition, but I have the same problems,... the unit necessary is missing...
    For that, I don'w know what to do...
    Help.

    If your recovery usb is 8.0, it won't let you Refresh now you have 8.1 installed.

    It should let you Reset, though.

    Perhaps it means a partition is missing?

    Are you booting from the usb stick?

    Probably better to get 8.1 installation media. Boot it up and do a Refresh/clean install.

    I don't know if they are missing, but appears in easeus, but not in diskpart. I've been booting fron the usb, and it was created after the problem as the Picture 2 , not at the beginning.

    Well, the laptop came with Windows 8, but then I updated to Windows 8.1 through the store. Therefore, this is the second time that I tried to do, but this time it doesn't work. The first time was possible to do it, I had Windows 8.1 through the store but now I hace that problem.
    I have been following this page, it looks like my problem: Unable to use built-in ASUS recovery partition
    But I cant find the dropbox files. I found a dropbox that has bin, geek only, and run me as adminv16.
    My laptop is from 64bits

    The next time you use Diskpart, instead of checking the volumes, select the Disk and then list the partitions. If you have used EaseUS, you probably have the OEM partitions mentioned in that same thread.

    Diskpart

    sel dis 0

    list par

    This assumes you only have one hard drive, which would be disk 0

    Take a look at this post: Need help reinstalling Windonws 8 from USB

    Before you begin, check that the sources folder contains the split image files: Install.swm, Install2.swm, Install3.swm, etc.

    @genet.

    Looks ok. I expect the sources\recovery contains winre.wim, possibly renamed to boot.wim

    @thisangels

    You can try this, it will only work if it can find winre.wim on your hard drive. Worth a try.

    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.
