    Cannot refresh laptop (win 8.1)


    I almost have the same issue like this but what I want to do is just to refresh my PC.
    I tried to go to the refresh option but getting the message "There was a problem refreshing your PC"
    So I followed this thread and did almost of everything...I did the Recommended Configuration: System Recovery
    however I do not have the partition for the EOM. I only have 5 partitions (Recovery, System, Reserved, Primary, Recovery) but I still followed the commands and tried to refresh afterwards but still did not work.
    Also, I cannot do anything with my computer now (saving files, copying/transferring files to an external drive, some app are not working)
    I desperately need help guys...Please please please.
    Also, Im not much of a techie so please try not to talk too much jargons.
    Thank.

    Windows 8.1 Pro OEM


    Genet and Kyhi u people are legends. Really.. awesome. I was finding the solution for the same problem for atleast a month.. now would you help me little more on how to deploy my own recovery partition. I have OEM 8.1 Pro. My laptop Dell Inspiron had recovery partition which I unfortunately deleted while creating USB Recovery Media. I checked the option which asks to copy content from recovery partion. And after USB Recovery Media was created. I clicked on Delete Recovery Partiton. now I have recovery media on USB. I also have made a .Wim image of installed windows. Now can someone help me regarding deploying factory reset partion from the USB.. thanks alot guys.
    Moreover. I also destroyed my windows recovery environment by using EaseUs software. Damn why its still being downloaded. Somehow there website should be blocked untill they fix the issue.. how many victims are already been made..

    Windows 10 installation error code 0x8007003


    I have a home built desktop running Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit. I used Easus partition master to set up a dual boot with Win 10TP. I have now deleted the dual boot and have attempted a number of times to upgrade to Win 10 Pro 64bit. Each time I get the failure code 0x8007003.
    Disk Manager shows Disk 0 partitions as follows:-

    300MB (OEM Partition)
    100MB Healthy (EFI System Partition)
    (C 464GB NTFS Healthy (Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, Primary Partition)
    449MB Healthy (Recovery Partition)

    From reading through this thread I believe that the 300MB (OEM Partition) needs to be renamed. But what to? Should it be System Reserved Partition or should it be Recovery Partition? And if someone could point me to the code to use I would be very grateful.

    If you have the factory recovery image on USB - just boot from the USB - advanced options - reset pc
