    Here it is. I have a windows 8.1 with bing tablet. That i upgraded to win 10, but then i realized it deleted the recoverypartition and copied the contents to my exfernalis sd card. I immidiately reverted back and the reco partution is still safe. The copy in the sd card were still there. Now after the reverse the reset, refresh, and create reco drive options arent working, Win Re cannot be repaired, so i reinstalled win 8.1 with bing using an iso i downloaded from pcsteps.net or .com i think, it detected my product key so i assumed it was safe and ive read their forums that it's legit, here's the catch, since ms agent advice me that this can work, i tried it, custom installed 8.1, deleted all partition except the default recovery drive partition, and win Re again worked but i still cant factory reset my tablet neither create a recovery drive. I tried to view the contents of the recovery partition. I don't know if something is missing, there are no swf files, just a Install.wim and custom.wim in a directory named Windows Images. Im guessing all the files are intact since the partition is healthy in the disk management wizard.

    Right now, i reinstalled win 8.1 with bing to get it temporarily working. But i really need to reset it to factory default. So please help me.

    Your Tablet uses the WinBoot option...
    Since you found the Install and custom wim files - within one of the HDD partitions
    you need to show all hidden and system files on that same partition..

    there is a Recovery\ folder
    and a Images\ folder

    you need to copy those two folders -

    you can use diskpart to assign a drive letter to that partition
    and I would to see a screen shot of the files included in those two folders..

    Also open command prompt (admin) and type>
    Reagentc /info

    Can you see the screenshots? I cant seem to attach files

    the two wimp files are 3gb+ in size. plus I don't have the external sd card any more since it got corrupted. I'm just have the factory partition.

    Copy the complete contents of the Y drive to a fat32 formatted USB stick..
    What seems to have happened is the upgrade or re-install knocked out the prior WimBoot configuration

    Inside the recovery\windowsRE\ folder there is a winre.wim

    now you are showing two such folder but one is spelled wrong..

    I order to create recovery media - we need
    Install.wim
    custom.wim
    winre.wim

    and is also that diskpartscript.* file

    See if that USB will boot....
    I assume you will have an issue with restore because it appears you have two windowsRE folders
    the other folder is mis-spelled and I am not sure what it contains
    as the file dating, is what I need to see..
