Don't know for sure. Check with you OEM by phone, online, via website or whatever. Also, we could help more if you told us about your computer. See my sig.

Thank you. I should have been more specific. What brand and model is your computer? I now see that you entered the model number: apparently ET2411IUK-WIN 8. I think it is an ASUS--having trouble finding it though. Desktop, laptop, all in one? Oh, screen size =
 

23.6". Desktop or all in one? All in one. Probably very similar to this one, but with Win8. Apparently, you can download a manual for this similar machine running under Win8 using this link.


Your machine is new so your could call ASUS if no info about what you want to know came with your machine. You might also be able to talk to your seller.

You could try to find your specific model at ASUS.com and then find its manual. As mentioned, you should be able to call ASUS or talk to your seller about what you want to know. Didn't anything at all come with your computer that would allow you to figure out what you want to know? How about something on the computer HD itself?

With Asus, you should get to the recovery partition via F9 at boot.

Welcome to EightForums.

Asus ET2411IUK
Sorry to say, but ASUS are not doing Recovery disc's

G75 Windows 8, AI Recovery Utlity, Intel 520 ssd

thinkspring said:
I just spoke with a polite & well-informed person at Asus tech support regarding how to create a disk image for my new g75 (which I purchased yesterday) that has Windows 8 on it.

The answer was what I feared- currently there are no Asus-provided recovery tools to create a disk image for the G75VW with Windows 8. This was very surprising to me but right now this is the official word from Asus.

Will you need to use the Windows system image.
