Refresh Windows 8 - Create And Use Custom Recovery Image

Dec 8, 2012

I have read the tutorial (Refresh Windows 8 - Create and Use Custom Recovery Image) . Would I not get the same result if I created a Disk and Partition Backup using a program like Acronis or Easeus? That way I hope to keep all my initial system, personal files and third party applications.

How To Create Recovery Partition

Jan 23, 2014

A Dell technician replaced a new motherboard. Then, Windows 8 was restored using a provided Windows 8 recovery media DVD. Now, windows 8 runs super.

What I now found was that the original recovery partitions were disappeared. in the main hard drive.

I could not create a recovery drive (in flash drive) without recovery partitions in hard drive.

Is there a way to re-create the original recovery partitions ? If so, how?

Setup Installation :: How To Create Recovery Partition On 2nd HDD

Jun 29, 2014

I recently picked up an Asus laptop, a SDD to replace the the laptop's HDD, and a HDD caddy to hold the HDD in place of the CD/DVD drive. After a fresh Win 8.1 install on the SDD, I made system images of both the SDD and the HDD with the Win 8 OEM install (both stored on external drive). I also created a USB recovery drive and then formatted the HDD.

Fast forward a few weeks... It's last Friday. I'm about to leave for a business trip. I boot up my laptop and a screen comes up telling me to "reboot and select proper boot device". I pull the SDD out, hook it up to my desktop, and see that the drive shows up, but it's blank. A little googling turned up a few reviews from other people with the same issue. On rare occasion, it will wipe itself. Using the USB recovery drive and the Win 8.1 system image, I got things up and running again.

Now for my question, instead of constantly carrying around the 2 USB drives holding the recovery and system image, can I create a recovery partition on my HDD that I can boot too if my SDD wipes again? (Could I copy or clone my Recovery USB to a partition on my HDD?) Then I could just keep the SSD system image on the HDD in case I need to restore it, right?

Disk 0: SDD disk that wiped itself
Disk 1: HDD that I'd like to have a recovery partition and system image on

I also have: Win 8 OEM system imageWin 8.1 system imageRecovery USB drive (8.1)Win 8.1 USB Install drive

Create Windows 8 USB From Recovery Partition Files

Jul 1, 2013

I finally broke down and bought a modern laptop Asus A55A (K55A) and installed Ubuntu 12.04 in a dual boot situation. With the nefarious secureboot and other such nonsense Windows 8 install met with an untimely demise. However, I have the files left on the recovery partition (copied to my 16gb usb) and need to make an install disk. My only issue is that I can't find a way to do it in Ubuntu as all the tutorials I find assume that Windows is installed. Is there a way to make a bootable Windows 8 install usb or iso from the files on the recovery partition-without using Windows to make it? I would love to re-install Windows 8 and then setup a stale dual boot.

Maintenance :: No Active Custom Recovery Image

Dec 29, 2013

When I entered recimg/show current in elevated cmd , I get the message : There is no active custom recovery image.

However when I checked disk management , I get the following partitions:

EFI System 50mb
OEM 40mb
Recovery Partition 2GB
OS C 50.12Gb
Recovery Partition 5.42Gb

What are in those 2 Recovery Partitions ? Are they the 2 restore points I created? Why is the second Recovery Partition so much larger than the first?

Maintenance :: Windows 8.1 - Cannot Set Custom Recovery Image

Dec 23, 2013

I created a custom refresh image the day before upgrading to 8.1. I am having shut down and sleep issues with windows 8.1 that I don't have time to troubleshoot any longer and I wish to go back to win 8 for now. I went to check that my image was there and active and this is what i get:

It showed successful when I created it? I can find in in the location that is it supposed to be:


Now I'm stuck. I don't want to use the factory image and reinstall everything, and I can't cope with the bsods and hangs when trying to sleep or shutdown ( I have tried every option in that massive thread about windows 8.1 not sleeping ) ...

Dell :: Backup And Recovery Unable To Create Recovery DVD

Feb 18, 2013

I am trying to create recovery discs from "Dell backup and Recovery application" however when i was asked to insert the second DVD,the optical drive keeps rejecting the DVD. The application will not continue to burn the second DVD and appears to be frozen. I tried with different brands/makers of DVD and also -/+ R. Unfortunately .Issue remains. I was able to find this article   593906  Published on 2013-01-21  ( relative link [URL]...   ).

Although i have done the updates ,i am still not able to create recovery discs !!   Current Issue:  after inserting the  3rd Disc application gives the following message "Dbr.exe -No disc found" and stays there and rejects the DVD.  I spoke with Dell's Greek Support team. I was told that warranty does not cover sw support even if my unit is less than a week old. Furthermore i was informed that although "Dell backup and recovery" application says DELL is not actually a Dell product thus they can't support it. They suggested my to use windows 7 file recovery instead (which needs at least 8 DVDs !).

Setup Installation :: Replace Recovery Partition In Recovery Drive?

Jun 20, 2014

If you have a recovery drive - that includes the recovery partition - made on one computer, but have a toshiba laptop with a bad drive (but the recovery partition is ok), can you replace/copy the partition on the recovery drive with the recovery partition from the bad laptop HD?

My friend's laptop would not boot, and would not factory recover, reset, or refresh. I tried to clone the hard drive before I started messing with the disc. It would not clone, but I was able to copy the recovery partition to a USB drive.

He never make recovery discs, so could not re-install, but I can borrow the recovery drive that my aunt made for her laptop.

How To Create A Recovery Drive

Feb 5, 2014

so one of my computers entered a boot loop and I'm pretty sure the only way to fix it is using a recovery drive. Only problem is the only other windows 8 PC in the house doesnt let me create it. I go through the steps outlined in this thread: Recovery Drive - Create with USB Flash Drive in Windows 8 but i get stuck on step 6. When I insert a USB drive the create recovery drive setup doesnt seem to recognize it. It just refreshes (which shows that it detects a usb being inserted) but nothing shows up. Oddly enough, I can access the usb drive through my computer and copying/moving etc files still works. How can I make it so it appears?

Re-create System Partition?

Jun 1, 2014

I have a UEFI PC with an SSD and an HDD. I installed Windows 8 and upgraded to Windows 8.1 on the SSD.

For reasons I don't understand, Windows created the system reserved partition on the HDD, not the SSD. Not knowing this, I erased and reformatted the HDD, and now the system will not boot. The Windows 8.1 install is still present on the SDD, but the system reserved partition is absent.

Is there a way to re-create the system reserved partition? I have the Windows 8 install DVD, but the upgrades to 8.1 were made using Microsoft Update and the Microsoft Store.

Windows 8 - Create Recovery Drive

Jan 26, 2013

I just bought Asus UX31A-R4005H (with Windows 8). Unfortunately Asus doesn't provide any application to restore Windows 8 back to factory conditions. So i need to recovery whole hard drive partitions back to factory settings.

Firstly i need to create a set of OEM factory recovery discs/usb flash.

1. I'm planning to create a system recovery drive (usb flash) with Windows 8 but i wonder if this usb flash will recover whole hdd back to factory conditions? If yes is it enough to use Windows 8 "create a recovery drive" option?

2. How could i create an original OEM factory recovery usb flash with 3rd party application?

Create System Recovery Disk In Windows 8?

Dec 31, 2012

I decided that I should, create a System Recovery DVD for my new computer. However when I try and do it I only get the option to create a recovery USB Drive.

I did that but I'd still like to make a DVD disk.

Ps. I see that my system recovery USB drive has an empty folder called Sources. If I was to place a backup of my C: drive in that folder would it be automatically accessible and usable from the DVD drive?

Hmmm, I can't seem to find a way to use Windows to create a backup of my C: drive either.

Maintenance :: Can't Create Recovery Drive On DVD Using Windows 8.1

Nov 21, 2013

I recently bought a Dell Windows 8 desktop. I upgraded the desktop to Windows 8.1. I want to create a recovery drive using a DVD rather than a flash drive. (I understand Microsoft wants you to create recovery onto a flash drive rather than a DVD. Not sure why.)

I found several places on the net which discuss just how create recover onto a DVD. They suggest that I do a search on "Windows 7 file" and this will display an option to click on "Windows 7 File Recovery" ... and that will lead me through the steps to create my recovery onto a DVD.

Problem is "Windows 7 File" is not found. How do I get this onto my Windows 8.1 system?

Maintenance :: Create Partition Image - Windows 8

Jul 1, 2013

I bought an Acer notebook with Windows 8 SL (Single Language) and UEFI BIOS (with Secure Boot) factory installed (Windows Key is set in Bios).

I have the habit of installing all programs and make an image of partition C: in case of having to reinstall the entire system for problems with Windows, HDD exchange or similar cases. With this gain too long and not have to reinstall all the programs one by one.

My HDD is partitioned into 4 parts: C:, E:, F: and G:.

When I enter the Windows 8 app to generate the system image appear two partitions pre-marked for backup: C: (Programs) and EFI System Partition (no drive letter). C: partition is formatted as NTFS, but the EFI is as FAT32.

My question is: when I restore this, how should I format the partition where you install the system again (C ? Format all the partition as NTFS and Backup app creates the EFI partition FAT32 by own?

How it works and how to proceed? I will boot the system by CD-ROM.

My new Toshiba laptop runs Windows 8, boots in UEFI mode and GPT formatted, can I create a logical partition solely for storage so that when I format/recover windows partition like windows system image restore, the files and folders stored in the partition is not affected?Just like I did in my old windows 7 laptop that boots in BIOS mode and MBR formatted, which I put the partition as D: drive? Are there any possibilities I do that without messing up the system?

Windows Doesn't Boot After Trying To Create A Partition

Nov 13, 2013

I just purchased a brand new laptop (Lenovo s400) with Windows 8 (which was promptly updated to 8.1) and since I don't like having OS and personal files on the same disk, I used Partition Master for creating a new Partition to keep my files.

After PM rebooted the system, Windows doesn't boot and shows an error coded 0xc0000225. Lenovo adds a button to access System Recovery, but again I get the same error. As far as I can remember, I've never seen a recovery partition and no disks were included (Should've created a recovery USB drive as soon as I took it out of the box).

I would like to emphasize that this hard drive wasn't formatted, just re sized.

HP Envy - Cannot Create Systems Repair Disk Only Recovery USB

Jan 20, 2014

I have an HP Envy with a recovery partition. I did indeed create a dedicated USB drive that copied the recovery partition from the partition on the hard drive that shipped with the unit.

I wanted to create a restore registry type of system repair disk as you could in Windows 7. However even though I read that the option should appear in the Recovery Options that says: Create a Systems Repair Disk with a CD or DVD (see System Repair Disc - Create in Windows 8), that option never appears.

While I do have Acronis as a backup I would like a quick bootable CD/DVD that offers a registry restore option. But perhaps that is what the recovery partition is for and when the time comes it will offer me that option, not sure (????).

Or may be there is a separate .iso I can downlaod and burn like I did for Win 7 32 bit and 64 bit.

Samsung NP550P5C - How To Create Windows 8 Recovery Disc

Dec 26, 2012

This is for a Samsung NP550P5C... having typed it into Google, the options appear a little confusing with the best option being how to make recovery discs for an HP laptop (presumably using HP's built in wizard), requiring 4 DVD's. Other suggestions seem to tell you how to make a "Repair" disc for Windows 8 with one readers comments of.....

" Windows 8 recovery Disk is used to reset your PC - it is supposed to reload the operating system and restore factory default settings. You need a USB flash drive 16GB or larger. I haven't found yet a way to create Windows 8 recovery CD/DVD, which can be used to reinstall the operating system."

It's not even clear how to do it on a Flash Drive though I would prefer using discs...
