Like many others here, when I try to Reset the system to factory settings on my Asus X75A, it errors with the message that the partition is missing. I guess it is the Windows 8.1 update that has done that. I have taken some screen shots of what is going on. I have tried the Backtracker program and the Windows Reset route but they both cannot see the relevant Recovery partition. I have tried the various suggestions here but have got nowhere. I'm sure it is just something that needs doing that I haven't done. The Reagentc /info result seems to say that all is in order, so I am now tearing my hair out for a solution, if someone could be so kind as to point me in the right direction. Thanking you in advance.
Whoa!! Just spotted post #462 that Marcus wrote:
"Has anyone tried the Asus Recovery Utility specifically designed for users who are unable to downgrade? Does it work? Here's the link ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download ASUS Recovery
Also, the Asus FAQ article about downgrading issues and Asus Recovery ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support-
I decided to try it, thinking I was going to end up with the same result. But no, the process went further and it is finally Resetting and at 14%!! Woo hoo!! Nice one, Marcus! I downloaded the first file for downgrading Win 8.1 to Win 8 and I did not receive a message about not finding the Recovery Partition. It's looking promising so far... watch this space!
Update... it is now installed, the Recovery Partition worked fine. Many thanks to all those who have contributed here, without whom I would not have achieved my goal. Best wishes to all!!
