    How to fix the error message: "Could not find the recovery environment", if the ID for the recovery partition type is incorrectly set to OEM.

    - You need to manually select the partition and change the partition ID.

    - Open a command prompt as administrator and type (or copy and paste) the following commands.

    diskpart
    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
    Works for me as well. Thanks a bunch. But in my case (please see the picture), Recovery Image Index is '2' (in your picture, it is '1'). Any ideas for the difference???

    Everything is alright.

    - On some computers, Recovery image index is 1
    - On some computers, Recovery image index is 2
