    Plus sir, what commandline should i use in applying the custom.wim file and making the factory reset work like it was opened the first day. Whenever i apply the custom.wim file usong cmd, it doesnot proceed telling it doesnt have a resources folder, also if i use wimboot, reagent.exe will now say that modiyfying or customizing the image isnt supported in this computer whenever i try to regisfer either of the wim files as recovery source. What am i doing wrong in wimboot. 12 gb's too big conpared to the 8gb installation. I hope we get to fix this. So i can help others too with the same problem

    And since I'm totally Nov when it comes to wimboot... I totally need instruction and guidance on this. With just the copy of the factory recovery partition as my primary resource.

    Since you already have the custom.wim - skip the customization and capture process....

    An honestly, i dont know how to start with this process, as i do not know what to do with the other extra files aside from the three winre files from the factory recovery partition. You're telling me before about the file dating of the 3 wim files which unfortunately doesn't match my 3 wim files and also with the misspelled folders in the default recovery partition copy. Remember those sir? When i posted here the cobtents of the factory recovery drive?

    Update: i upgraded to windows 10 the non wimboot variant and decided to restore back to test all the recovery functions after upgrading to 10 and upon rolling back windows the restoring your previous windows screen is being played in the loop like, the screen goes that way, reboots, then tells restoring, reboots, restoring and so on.. I think this observation will play a notable part why i want my tablet back to wimboot like the factory way...


    Can you somehow sir, specify in order the steps i will take and the instructions in deploying my factory wim files. I cant figure out how the microsoft instructions work, like when will be the time i will boot to a pe or the like, and how will i apply the custom.wim since i cant find the right command line to apply it without encountering the error. I dont understand how the whole process works since there are terms i cant understand though, my problem is my sources. I dont know how to properly deploy my wim files with a working refresh/reset feature... i wish i can just send my unit to you.
