    Your welcome, I noticed in your second post at the Diskpart command prompt you typed "list partitions". The command is "list partition". You added an s try it again without the s and then take a picture.

    Now remember you have to start from the beginning of my instructions on the post above. Follow them until you exit Diskpart. You did great with the last command I think that is what KYHI wants to see.

    recovery agent is using partition 7 for windows 10 WinRE...

    Now need to see the other partitions, so we can reset the recovery environment to use the windows 8 recovery partitions

    Partition 1 - should be OEM Recovery
    Partition 5 & 6 Unknown origin due to size
    Partition 7 is windows 10 Recovery
    Partition 8 is OEM Recovery Image

    So let us see what is on those partitions

    Diskpart
    select disk 0
    select partition 1
    assign letter=T
    select partition 5
    assign letter=M
    select partition 6
    assign letter=N
    select partition 8
    assign letter=R

    post a pic of file explorer for each newly assigned drive letter ( T, M, N, R )

    Also at this point you have now assigned drive letters to hidden partitions...
    And if you reboot the PC the drive letters will be removed, so do not reboot the PC at this time..
    Otherwise we'll have to re-assign drive letters to reset the recovery environment, back to factory..
