post 8, 8.1, 10 Upgrades... Possible to create Rec disc?
So now that I see how badly MS and ASUS screwed up the "free" upgrades, I have finally gotten the 8.0 restore and finally windows ten installed.
Not wanting to go through that 2 day process again I am wondering if creating a windows 10 restore disc or USB drive will even work. ie since after upgrades from windows 8 to 8.1 the restore to factory reset would not even work for going back to windows 8 or 8.1...
So is it stupid to create a restore disc for windows 10 now, following the standard directions described everywhere, because the restore will not work because it is not originally a windows 10 OS?
I have the same problem but managed to make a copy of the recovery image on a USB stick. However, it would not restore the SSD back to the factory state and said that the required partition could not be found. The USB stick had the install.wim image there.
F9 could not find the Recovery Image in the last partition.
reagentc /info Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) and system reset configuration
Windows RE status: Enabled
Windows RE location: \\?\GLOBALROOT\device\harddisk0\partition4\Recovery\WindowsRE
Boot Configuration Data (BCD) identifier: xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx
Recovery image location:
Recovery image index: 0
Custom image location:
Custom image index: 0
Thank you @Qub1. I think we are making progress but it still does not work for me after following precisely your steps.
After giving the partition the ID, I got the same error from the Recovery with F9.
Then, I assigned a letter R to my partition so I can see its content. On * partiton 7 I do have an install.wim of 12Gb and a BOOT.wim. How can I use them?
I am thinking I have more serious issues with reagentc /info (running as Admin). Check below.
The error 3 means: [FONT=&]The system cannot find the path specified.
