volume does not show recovery and restore volumes
partition shows recovery and restore as OEM.

Further reagentc /info and reagentc /enable shows
Reagentc.exe operation failed: 3
Reagentc.exe An error has occurred.

My machine is reserved for windows 10.
Does this has anything to do with above changes?
Why this happens?

I want to clean install windows 8.1 before upgrading to windows 10 so that all junk is removed. Am I doing right?
How should I go about?

Your recovery partitions have had their GPT attributes modified. Nothing to worry about.

If it bothers you, remove the "required" attribute from the partitions.

No attribute : 0x0000000000000000
"Required" aka "OEM" : 0x0000000000000001
No drive letter : 0x8000000000000000
Hidden : 0x4000000000000000
Shadow Copy : 0x2000000000000000
Read Only : 0x1000000000000000


You assign them in diskpart like this:

[CODE[
sel dis 0
sel par 2
gpt attributes=0xD000000000000000
sel par 12
gpt attributes=0xD000000000000000
exit
[/CODE[

That will remove the OEM attribute, and apply hidden, no drive letter, and readonly.

Thanks hydranix.
This changes partition type as unknown. Is there anyway to change original Recovery.
