How do I restore recovery partition for 'Reset PC to work?

  1. #31


    thank you very much, sir. I'm sorry if I was a pain in the a... I was just mad because I didn't understand why it happened since I didn't mess with my partitions or anything and everything that I tried didn't work. and second someone on one of this thread was making fun of me(at least that's how i felt) and that didn't feel too good) it wasn't fair cause i didn't make fun of him because he doesn't know how to do a heart surgery or what medication to give to someone with tachycardia paroxysmal supraventricular. but oh well, at least, you had the necessary patient with me so i will say again thank you
    the weird part is that every time i restart my pc and try to use recovery the same thing appears: "Could not find recovery environment", but as long as reagentc /enable works im fine. i forgot to mention. after i did the recovery with asus backtrack to factory settings my partitions didn't work so i did it again but this time with normal windows 8.1 bootable USB drive and just used the refresh option

    from what I see now - the winre recovery tools and the recovery image are properly registered for Windows Recovery...

    Now you should re-create your Recovery Media...

    Control Panel > Recovery > Create a Recovery Drive

    Reagentc /setreimage /path \\?\GLOBALROOT\device\harddisk1\partition6\Recovery\WindowsRE\ /Target C:\Windows
    reboot
    then try to create recovery media via control panel

    ok i succeed doing that. thank you KYHI for your patience with me. i still needed to refresh my pc with the usb drive to make the recovery stay active but, in the end, seems like it stays active now. the disk partitions look a little messed up but it doesn't bother me that much for now. maybe in a couple of months, i'll be back and annoy you with my newbie questions again
    and here is a picture with my CMD

    You can Now Boot from that PBR Factory Recovery USB and RESET your PC back to Factory Settings.....

    You should also select Only the Drive with Windows on it, Reset Partitions and Keep This PC as the format option....

    Otherwise we are Done...
    Enjoy!!
