    You're welcome.

    What did you do? Only these commands and then everything is working just fine?

    diskpart
    select disk 0
    list partition
    select partition # Note: Select the first OEM partition: select partition 1
    set id=de94bba4-06d1-4d40-a16a-bfd50179d6ac
    select partition # Note: Select the second OEM partition: select partition 6
    set id=de94bba4-06d1-4d40-a16a-bfd50179d6ac
    exit

    Yes, you are right. I only added these commands and everything was working just fine...

    Your screenshot shows, that your PC was not upgrade to Windows 8.1, but Preinstalled.
    There for your Recovery disk('s) will be Windows 8.1.
    Theog, you do remember the latest version of the 8 to 8.1 update does not create an additional partition, but puts the tools in the OS partition instead..? This sort of took away the obvious clue the system had been updated.

    @ philbyk, I would be interested in what version of EaseUS was used. I keep hoping they will correct the problem, but have not tried using any recent releases for testing.

    It was "Partition Master Professional 10.0", and the latest version is 10.1.

    Not used the windows Store for months, I use the 8.1.1 disk to upgrade.

    select disk 0
    list partition
    select partition # Note: Select the Windows RE tools partition.
    set id=de94bba4-06d1-4d40-a16a-bfd50179d6ac
    select partition # Note: Select the 350 MB or 450 MB Windows RE tools partition (if you have this partition).
    set id=de94bba4-06d1-4d40-a16a-bfd50179d6ac
    select partition # Note: Select the Recovery image partition.
    set id=de94bba4-06d1-4d40-a16a-bfd50179d6ac
    list partition
    exit
    Thanks! I just followed these steps and my Recovery came back!
    (PS. I didn't do the middle step because I don't have this partition.)
