Could not find recovery environment

Hello after reading the whole topic about this i still need some help.
I used easeUS Partition Master, and that broke the link to the recovery. I fixed it but somehow it snapped again.

On the screenshot you see that Windows RE location is empty, somehow i can't seem to fix this.

As i can see the recovery image location is right.
For both i checked the offset twice, i changed their ID's (because it said OEM etc)

Thanks in advance.


ps. Just found out that i posted this in the wrong part, can someone change this?

- Post a screenshot of "list partition" and "reagentc /info".
- Open a command prompt as administrator and type (or copy and paste) the following commands.

diskpart
select disk 0
list partition
exit
reagentc /info

- Alt-PrtScr copies the active window to the clipboard.

[del]This is probably an OEM partition (see screenshot below).[/del]

Some computer manufacturers (Lenovo/Sony) have their own GUIDs for partitions that hold boot loaders to launch manufacturer-specific recovery tools.

So i need to change this? If so how do i set this to OEM partition?

PS. Genet, i've followed another "solution" for a problem like this that worked great (posted by you) only after a reboot it was broken yesterday morning.

Here is a reference list of partition type and ID. You need to manually SELECT PARTITION then SET ID for the damaged partition type.

  • Recovery is DE94BBA4-06D1-4D40-A16A-BFD50179D6AC
  • System is C12A7328-F81F-11D2-BA4B-00A0C93EC93B
  • OEM is BFBFAFE7-A34F-448A-9A5B-6213EB736C22
  • Reserved is E3C9E316-0B5C-4DB8-817D-F92DF00215AE
  • Primary is EBD0A0A2-B9E5-4433-87C0-68B6B72699C7
You cannot update the partition with type Reserved.

diskpart
select disk 0
select partition 2
assign letter=t

now browse the file on that partition - would rather see not found as the winre.wim may be in another folder then default value
