Thanks for the post.
The information I gave in the first post was extracted from that page.
Sorry, I cannot upload a file because that might set off alarms. :eek:
I guess not everything is shown to the end user, especially the core processes and drivers. They must be using the "missing" portion.
I'm currently troubleshooting performance issues with my work PC. Even when I am not doing much, the memory usage is quite high.
I have 4GB RAM in the system (128MB allocated for the GPU, I believe, as System Properties window shows 3.88GB memory usable) and am running Windows 8.1...
voila! found a solution and it worked PERFECTLY!!!
Windows 7/8 - OEM Recovery Partition Creator
i made a recovery image after installing the drivers for the touch screen and wifi,
which are not installed for this tablet by default.
both inbuilt reset and refresh work great, i did each a few...
i updated to windows 8.1
it broke stock recovery functionality - from Dell's backup and recovery software as well as from windows pc settings
their backup and recovery software had to be updated to do recovery thereafter
i also made a recovery USB drive at this point just in case
i did that and...
[Solved] How to make a custom "reset" folder?
I know that by using recimg, you can make a custom refresh image. And I hear that you cannot use it to reset Windows to factory state. is that so?
if so, how do I do that?
also, is it possible to store the recovery image in a hidden partition...
Well, since it is a tablet, I don't think providing recovery "discs" is a good idea. I want to fix the recovery functionality. But I'll see what I can do with what I learned from the above posts. Thanks.
well, i don't want hidden partitions actually. i want a partition that cannot be formatted or assigned a drive letter. like in the OEM PCs.
the thing is, the system recovery of my Dell Latitude 10 tablet is not working. for myself, i can do it like given in the first post. but i'm planning to...
Managed to install Windows 8.1 as "upgrade".
First I had to extract the OEM key by this method (the last method) and save it somewhere safe.
When I ran the setup, I entered the default install keys given here.
Once the installation was completed, I could change the key to the OEM key from PC...
I downloaded Windows 8.1 from MSDN. When I tried to run the setup from Windows, it said the OEM key is not supported with Windows 8.1. I surely can use a retail key from the MSDN account but that is my office account, and I should be able to use the key that I paid for anyways.
Is there any...
Dell support personnel doesn't know much.
This happened to me once. I don't know how I brought it back to life, but try different button combinations. First fully charge it.
Try pressing down and holding the volume up button and then pressing (or long pressing) power button. it should take...
I just ran the Windows setup from within Windows. I used a flash drive, bootable with Windows 8 32bit. but maybe that was not necessary. wonder if an mounted ISO file alone would have been enough for this.
This allowed me to install Windows 8 over 8.1 Preview. Didn't ask for a...
At least I managed to reinstall Windows 8 by running the setup from Windows and remove the traces of 8.1 Preview. No issues with Activation, but I seems as if all the drivers aren't installed. The touch screen is not working, but in not sure if it is because it really isn't working or because a...
I feel that too. But the recovery image is not on C:
If you look at the disk management screenshot I posted, the recovery image seems to be located in the final partition. But I don't know how to access it. Or how to register it to work again. Any ideas?
I've got this Dell tablet and it's touch screen has gone kaput. It works sometimes, it doesn't most of the times. It has gotten worse in the last few days. It only used to do that when resuming from Standby previously.
There is nothing I can do...
i have disabled system protection, so i don't think this is going to work.
but the weirdest thing has happened. the two files have somehow got deleted, and i don't get the message in Action Center. i don't know what fixed it or when it got fixed. but i'm happy now.
too bad i cannot...
