    I tried this with the same result!! path was not found.
    though when i re enabled reagentc the path of the reimage was already set to partition 2!!!!!
    Any other solutions? can i browse these partitions to look for the correct path???

    Many Thanks.

    Yes. For example:

    diskpart
    select disk 0
    list partition
    select partition 6
    assign letter="T"
    exit

    Here is some info: unable to go to desktop, refresh or reset windows8 laptop

    Hello,

    I am trying to upgrade my HP Envy m6-n113dx to Windows 10 and I have noticed that I get the 80070003 error when looking in the update history. From lots of headache and googling I have found myself in this forum.

    From reading it, it looks like there might be a problem with the labels of my partitions but I don't think mine are caused by the partition program mentioned because I don't see any labels saying OEM.

    Below is what I see when I run the DISKPART.EXE in the command prompt (run as administrator).

    I do see two primary drives, but I know that the 26gb partition is definitely not a primary drive and that it is definitely the restore partition.

    I tried to run REAGENTC /info and this is what I get:

    As a side note, I did upgrade this pc from a standard hdd to an ssd which required the use of some partition tools and image copying software provided by Acronis.

    Should I change the label of the 26gb primary to recovery as shown in previous pages? Could this be the root of all my problems in upgrading to Windows 10?

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciate.

    Ok, fantastic. I have already done what you have directed me to do and reagentc /info now works.

    I am attempting the Windows 10 upgrade once again. It takes a while, so I'll post again when it either completes or fails to let you know which it did.

    I got a different error on the Windows 10 upgrade, but that's a different topic. Being I have a different error than last time, I will take that as a positive outcome, or progress!

    As far as REAGENTC /INFO, my problem was resolved!

    No recovery partition


    Trying to solve the Win 10 80070003 upgrade error lead me to this thread. I replaced the HDD in a new Dell ultrabook with a 512 GB SSD. I used OEM Acronis True Image that came with the SSD to clone the original drive, which was smaller. I created the System Recovery USB, and deleted the recovery partition on the drive. I then (unfortunately) used Easeus to resize the partitions and take advantage of the unallocated space (the 457 and 18 GB partitions). I get the dreaded error trying to upgrade to Win 10. Reagentc /info returns the Operation failed:3 error. Below is the list of my partitions. Do I need to restore the recovery partition, and if so, can I do that from the system recovery? (I still have the original hard drive, but I can't recall whether I deleted the recovery partition before or after I cloned it.) I'd appreciate advice. I don't entirely understand the Set ID commands, so I'd appreciate step-by-step guidance.
