Asus transformer recovery disk partition

Question: Asus transformer recovery disk partition

Hi i ran out of disk space on my Asus t100 and heard i could get back 8gb by creating a usb recovery file and deleting the 8gb recovery partition. I have created the usb recovery from Windows 8 and couldn't delete the partition, just got help when i right clicked the partition in disk management. Do i used a disk wizard piece of downloaded software to delete the recovery partition and it asked me to restart. After restarting windows asks for a recovery key which i have got from bit locker and i am now stuck in an eternal loop as i don't know what to do. I have got to the automatic repair point but everything i try gets me to restart and go back into the automatic repair screens. What should i do to get Windows to reboot without losing everything. I have backed up my docs and pictures. Any ideas?

Preferred Solution: Asus transformer recovery disk partition

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

COULD NOT FIND RECOVERY ENVIRONMENT
(I know it's a redundant thread but I think I'm having a different scenario)
Specs: (nothing's changed except I did reinstall win8.1)
- win8.1 x64 single languange
- 1TB HDD
■THE SCENARIO■
There was a time when I want to resize my drive C to smaller partition:
I used Easus Partion Manager to do so (to dumb I was). After rebooting my system could not start
The BSOD showed up:
RECOVERY
PC needs repair (blah3x)
Error code: 0x000225
I was able to manage to repair and I came back up fine using a tutorial in youtube
using bcdboot C:\Windows /s (any drive letter): /s uefi
At this point, I downloaded a new copy of windows8.1 SL, thru "mediacreationtool" (as a legit copy i suppose)
and then I reinstalled using the ISO from MS, now I'm totally OK, at least at the moment.

■THE ISSUE■
Seems like everything's working as it is now, but as soon as I try to press F9 upon boot up, same error popup
Error Code: 0x000225, and again I got used to doing the bcdboot method.
NOW, this "Restore" partition the size of 20GB, and appeared and it had something in it (some files I think).

This wasn't there before and after reinstallation of win8.1 SL. IT ONLY appeared when I pressed F9 then I repaired
it using bcdboot.

■MISSION IMPOSSIBLE■
If there's a way that I could restore my notebook pc back to day one: Or am i that close? (close enough)

Unless you can get a Cisco VPN client to run on the tablet, you're pretty much stuck. I haven't been able to get another vendor's VPN client to work with a Cisco VPN server. The Apple Touch has a built in client to connect to Cisco VPN servers as part of the OS build.

Finally. When W8 was first released, I knew devices like this would be possible. This is what excited me about W8. All the critics talking about how it's a pain/confusing to go from Metro to Desktop, how this is the next Vista, how W8 is clunky with a keyboard and mouse, how a tablet OS doesn't belong on a desktop, etc.
In my view, being able to go from Metro to Desktop is a positive, not a negative. Desktops (with traditional keyboard and mice) have long been dissapearing in favor of laptops, and more recently, tablets. I'd say the vast majority of people own laptops these days, and when considering future purchases, most are looking at laptops/tablets as opposed to desktop PC's.
-W8 on a laptop with a nice large multitouch trackpad (similar to Apple's) with all the W8 gestures built in to the trackpad will be anything but clunky. It will be a pleasure to use, scrolling horizontally, swiping to get the charms, etc.
-W8 on a touchscreen laptop, with the same large trackpad, will just add another dimension of usability.
-W8 (intel versions) on a tablet will be by far the most powerful tablets available today, able to run any Windows 7 program while additionally functioning as a beautiful tablet OS.
And now we have Hybrids such as this Asus Transformer Book.

Hello,
I have recently received an ASUS A53SD-ES71 from a friend. He had formatted the laptop, he without thinking formatted dirve 0 which contains all the ASUS software that is necessary for the computer. He is unable to find the boot disk that should have been included. Upon hitting F9 there is no option for a windows setup, as it has been wiped out. The recovery partition was wiped out I am thinking it is running windows 7. What would be the next step to restore it. I am not very tech savvy so advice would be appreciated.​

I think my computer has been infected with a number of viruses and seems to be running slowly. I reckon the best way to deal with that would be to reinstall windows. I'm also thinking of running ubuntu on the system as well. The first question I need to know is whether the recovery partition will reinstall windows and the additional ASUS programs that were installed when I bought it. This system was bought in Spain and I was wondering whether it would revert back to Spanish(or it could even be Catalan!) when I used the recovery partition. I can't understand either so that may be a problem. I'm also insure whether it will wipe and reinstall both partitions or just C: where windows is installed. I don't want to lose files on the D: partition.

If anyone has advice on the best way to configure a dual boot. If heard that the best way is to have 3 separate partitions. Two small ones for both OSs and the third for my files. I've heard this is the best and cleanest way to configure the system. Any thoughts and/or advice. I really don't understand the recovery partition, how it works and the effects of using it.

Hi All,

I've read a lot of posts and a little confused. I upgraded ASUS S400CA to 8.1 . I just need to create a recovery disk with the option of copy from recovery partition which is graded out as many of you know. Can you please provide me with the steps of what I will have to do to create a USB drive which will hold the image and when I want to restore the laptop to original settings I can use that USB drive.
Thanks in Advance!

Answer:ASUS Recovery partition

See this tutorial to create a recovery drive on a usb drive. It is more of a repair option but in some cases would give you access to an OEM recovery but that is dependent on the recovery partition remaining intact.

Another option is to create a system image of your computer using a program like Macrium Reflect (Free) in the event of a failure.

I have a Asus T100TA transformer book laptop, I'm trying to load Windows 8 on it. I've allocated the SSD through linux to do away with Bitlocker which was previously on it and ended up loosing the MBR in the process. Now I can't load Windows on it at all . I'm totally clueless as to what to do with regards to this particular bios (UEFI)other than the fact that Windows can't be loaded on it nor do I know how to switch over to Legacy which will give me a better chance of installing windows. Can I somehow install the MBR back into bios? Right now bios is not showing any kind of boot options at all. Any ideas?

Answer:Asus T100TA Transformer Book

Boot into Setup (Bios) go to the Security tab look for Secure Boot, Disable it or change it to Setup Mode. Go to the Boot Tab select UEFI Bios and change it to Legacy. This will show the various Drives. Select CD/DVD rom drive and move it to First Boot Device, Save and Exit.

Hi,
I recently bought a Asus Tradnsformer t100. It has windows 8.1 32 bit. This takes up almost 18gigs of memory and not I can not download onto my computer, saying the disk is full. How can I add additional disk space. I contacted Asus and they were of no help. This is rendering my notebook/tablet useless. Any information greatly appreciated. Thanks.
 

Answer:asus transformer t100 no memory

If I recall correctly, that device utilizes a MicroSD card slot for storage. SO if you are running out of space see if you can get a bigger SD card. It likely would hold one around 64GB or larger But I don't know for sure.

Hi,
So I recently purchased an Asus k52J laptop but decided to return it soon after. Unfortunatly even though the laptop is in new condition they won't accept it because I deletd the recovery partition like an idiot! I asked if I just restored to factory settings if they would accept it then, they still refused because it wouldn't have the recovery partition, I tried to create the recovery partion normally but it wont work since Windows 7 tries to backup the entire C drive instead of just the boot files and it inveitavbly runs out of room on the hard drive. Is there anyone way to recreate that original recovery partition or at least something that will fit in 19 gig partition? I'd really appreciate the help
Thanks!

Answer:Asus recovery partition creation?

Running the Recovery disks will often restore the Recovery partition as well. One of their purposes is to restore the factory image to a new or replacement HD.

I'd ask Acer to be sure.

Any Ideas?

Answer:How to backup recovery partition (ASUS)

Type Recovery on the start screen. That brings up the recovery device creator (Create a recovery drive). Follow the wizard. Best is to use a USB stick. Check the size of the recovery partition for right size of the stick.

Btw - deleting the recovery partition makes you lose some function - e.g. refresh via F9.

Hi,

I just got a new Asus Transformer Laptop (Windows 8.1) and am having trouble with it even locating my wifi.

I can see other's that are in my area but not mine. My partner's Asus laptop can find it fine with no issues. There is no Ethernet cable point on the laptop either to try that. I have reset the computer, turned wifi on/off, restored that modem (netgear) back to factory settings to no avail. I am currently using my mobile phone as a personal hotspot and that recognised it quickly. I don't know why my laptop would need to do any updates given that I got it yesterday but it that a possibility??

I am not computer savvy in ANY way to please use simple terms.

It's so upsetting getting a new laptop and not being able to use it.

Hello guys, so I bought my ASUS Transformer Book Flip TP300LA about a year ago, and it's great. But just recently, I ran into a bit of trouble. Well, I recently downloaded a free game, and inside it's client, it contained a 'virus' (name/info about it is posted below). I wasn't sure if it was real/fake and safe/dangerous, so I tried to remove it. I ran malware scans, but nothing came up, I even went to start up and tried to delete it, but I could only disable it. Even it being disabled, I didn't feel safe, so I decided to do a system restore, as I had a restore point 6 days back, so it wasn't too bad. After the restore was complete, I realized the 'virus' was gone, but my laptop was really slow, and the touch pad wasn't responding. I realized I had to do lots of updates due to the restore, and now even after the updates, my laptops performance (at times) is really slow, and freezes a lot. The touch pad works sometimes, but mainly isn't.

Anyways to get to my point, I would like assistance with the following:
-How to fix touch pad, it still isn't working when use it
-Performance (was well before the 'virus' and updates)

Let's try to keep this simple, after all I'm still going through tech school so I'm not the smartest guy.
 
I purchased and received an Asus T100TA tablet/laptop-whatever you want to call it. It came with several options as far as memory. I decided to save a hundred bucks and just replace the extra 32gb of internal memory with a 32gb sd card. Yes, I realize they are much slower than the internal SDD but I still want to use it as an app storage device.
 
Now the problem with this is that Asus and the Microsoft store have some licensing problems and we (the consumer) are unable to transfer any apps downloaded from the store to an external device, such as an sd card. I'll bet you know what I'm about to say next!
 
Yes, I do want to transfer them to my sd! But...it's a little different than you may imagine... I actually want to use that sd to extend the internal SDD's memory space so that when it runs out of memory it automatically starts storing the excess data on the card (I know, it's dangerous if I disconnect the sd card while its reading or writting memory from/to it if it thinks it's part of the internal SDD. I'm familiar with the risks.)
 
So my question to you is not can but how it can be done! I've put some major research into this topic and have gone as far as mounting the sd card as a folder on the sdd which allows me to store items on the "SDD" when in reality it's being routed to the sd. However, I can't control the installation directory for... Read more

Answer:Asus T100TA Transformer Book Applications

EDIT!: 
 
I tried serveral solutions in the past hour or so.
 
The closest to working was...
 
Enabling the view of hidden folders, finding and locating the "WindowsApps" folder which was under the "Programs Files" folder, backing up the folder and coping it to my clipboard, deleting the "WindowsApps" folder, mounting my sd under the name of "WindowsApps" (I read somewhere that Windows8.1 could not determine the difference between a mounted folder and a normal folder so it would read the same) which I then located under the "Programs Files" folder. This resulted in any installing apps to be located in the SD card under WindowsApps. Further more, starting any preinstalled apps would result in their crashing. Any new apps would pop up an error message which read "Windows cannot start this app, click below to refresh" (or something similar), being that this pc uses touch gestures which are not native to windows 8 I can't refresh my pc without the loss of these files-sorry gotta have that toutch screen, it's the whole reason for spending 400 bucks on this tiny laptop! Refreshing, from my belief would undo any recent changes anyway... 
 
To prevent any further damage to my system I reverted the changes by deleting the mount link and creating a new folder labeled "WindowsApps" and applying the "hidden" attribute to make it look like the original folder-at least to me, then by pasting the origonal files into the folder.

After I did a clean install of Win10 about a year ago, I created a USB Recovery Drive. I also have a Norton Security Recovery Drive and I?ve created USB Bootable PE Rescue Disk by Kyhi. I also use Acronis to create regular full disk images and I have a USB Bootable Acronis Rescue Drive.

With the USB Recovery Drive and the USB Bootable PE Rescue Disk by Kyhi, do I still need to keep the Recovery Partition that Win10 created when I did the original install? Are the files in that partition used by the system to create the USB Recovery Drive?

Also out of curiosity I executed the ?reagentc/info? command and I see that the Windows RE status is disabled. Did creating the USB Recovery Drive do that or is something else going on? If I keep the recovery partition then do I need to re-enable it and if so how do I do that?

Answer:Recovery Drive vs Recovery Partition vs PE Rescue Disk, confused.

Hi, you don't need the manufacturer's recovery partition unless you planned to restore the PC to as bought e.g. to sell it on.
You could create a disk image of it and save it on an external disk, then delete it from your PC.

Windows RE: Suggests you have a corrupt or missing partition - System Reserved. Note that Disk Management does not show this 16Mb partition. You need a 3rd party partition manager to see it.

See this (lots of technical detail):
Just a moment...

And do a couple of checks to see if it really is missing.

Hello!I just bought a Lenovo IdeaPad with a windows 7 32 bit version. There was no system disk added. I learned that the windows 7 version is hidden in a recovery partition. I now want to create a system disk to save the windows 7 32 bit version just in case and install a windows 7 ultimate 64 bit version on the computer. Can you tell me what I have to do? Thank you!

Answer:How to create a recovery system disk from the hidden recovery partition?

Hi and welcome,
One way is to save a recover set ... with OKR ... or better do this Backup before  ...but no way to get a  pure Windows 7 Install Disc if you mention this  ...  
 
And Windows 7 64 Bit will not run on Atom based machine.. i.e. S10/S10e/S10-2 ,S12 Intel/Nvidia ...
(and even when, it lacks of memory 2GB (due the intel chipset restrictions) is good for 32 Bit based systems, but not really enough for 64 Bit based systems, so there is no benefit for use a 64bit on a netbook)  
S10-3t W7 64 ?

Answer:Accidentally formatted the recovery partition and I can't make recovery disk

That sucks, and you have tons of options including heroic tasks such as undelete tools that may or not work reliably.You may also feed your machine type and model number into the support.lenovo.com website and navigate to a list of the latest and even oldest stable drivers and software for your system.Regaining the exact functionality of booting to the recovery partition isn't regained from downloading those drivers.If you're insistent on restoring the same reboot/recovery functionality then you should consider contacting Lenovo support to determine your options, I'm not qualified nor presumptuous enough to mention whether or not a fee is involved for materials.

Talk about confusing. Does anyone know how to get a Toshiba C660 working after the HDD has failed and the owner has stupidly NOT followed the instructions to make a recovery disk. Will the recovery disk ( if you purchase one from Toshiba ) rebuild the new HDD along with a new recovery partition and install windows 7 (original OS ) and accept the product key printed on the Windows License attached to the base of the laptop. I have read a number of suggestions but these have been deemed incorrect by others.

Surely Toshiba must have a way of sorting this problem.

Do they read these posts ?

Answer:Satellite L660-12Q - Would recovery disk rebuild the new HDD along with a new recovery partition

Hi buddy?

I don?t think that this is really complicated? I could find all info regarding the recovery procedure in the user manual?

The recovery disk has to be created at the first day of purchase? its recommended to create one in cases something would be wrong with the HDD.

The recovery disk contain an image?. Image is a package containing Win system, drivers, tools and all the stuff preinstalled on the notebook.
You purchased the notebook and the system was already activated so you don?t need the key placed at the bottom of the unit.
Furthermore the usage of recovery disk formats the whole HDD (partitions too) and set the notebook back to the same state like at the first day of purchase.

There is also another option to recover the notebook called HDD recovery. This HDD recovery does not need recovery disk. Usage of HDD recovery would format ONLY the C (system) partition.

Hey guys. I've read a lot from this site and the tutorials and solutions are amazing. so I have decided. somewhat, maybe you can help me. here's the scenario:

I have a windows tablet ,ASUS Vivotab M81C non-signature edition (Please google for the specs), upon downloading all the necessary updates, I upgraded it to windows 10, after the long upgrade I noticed that windows 10 removed my oem recovery partition. so I immediately reverted back to windows 8.1

When I checked my partitions, I see that it was restored and labeled "healthy" I thought everything is ok until I decided to reset the tablet (in windows 8.1 already). But then reset/refresh and even create recovery drive didn't work. the refresh/reset menu said "Couldn't find recovery environment" while Create Recovery Drive said "A required Partition is missing" Itried booting from an iso with same architecture and tried reset/refresh but nothing worked. So I decided to fresh install the OS using the ISO I found here :https://www.pcsteps.com/210-download...ree-microsoft/ and thankfully I hadn't encountered any activation issues with the ISO. I used Custom Install, deleted all partitions EXCEPT the default Recovery Partition and proceeded. Installed all the drivers and got the tablet working again.

I now decided to copy the recovery partition and it was successful though I still didn't delete the one in my HD. Now I want to restore my tablet back to its factory default using the recove... Read more

Answer:ASUS default recovery partition not working

Although it says "healthy" that doesn't mean all the data is still there. Installing Win 10, even though you backed out could have corrupted the recovery partition or the boot record. For example, on a Dell with a recovery partition installing some other OS invalidates using the recovery partion to restore and in those cases a restore/reinstallation requires discs or USB drive to install OS then needed drivers.

Hey everyone

Alright, so my ASUS laptop has been getting a little slow lately, so I decided to reinstall. Now I know my PC has an ASUS recovery partition, which re?nstalls the pc with all the tools, drivers etc, since I've used it before.
But now when I restart the computer and press F9 and reset, it doesn't work. This is what I do:


This is where it was supposed to give me the option to restore whole drive or just install windows to the primary partition. But now it asks for a CD, which I don't have. This PC never used to have a recovery CD, just a recovery partition.

Then, I read somewhere I could do the same from inside Windows 8, so I tried that as well by going to the charms bar, then Settings and then "Change PC settings". Then I selected "Update and recovery" from the left, and then went to Recovery, where I pressed the button to remove everything and reinstall windows. This is what I got:
So, I tried to see if EaseUs Partition manager showed the recovery partition. I started ASUS and these are the partitions it found:
I saw it found both a "Recovery" partition and a "Restore" partition. Now I assume the Recovery partition is the one Windows 8 boots into, and the Restore partition is the one created by ASUS. So, these are the contents of the Recovery partition:

Have you repartitioned that drive in any way since you got it? If yes, that likely broke the link to the factory recovery partition.

Answer:How to access recovery partition on Asus laptop.

This might help you.

Asus Recovery System

I?d like to give you a brief description of the system recovery utility all notebooks from ASUS come with. You can use it from a special hidden partition on the hard drive by pressing F9 at system startup or from the included Recovery and Driver&Utility discs (to do that, you should press Esc at startup, select Boot from ATAPI CD-ROM Drive and then change the discs as requested). The system will offer four options to you:

1. If none of the following recovery options is selected, the computer will just be rebooted to load Windows (if Recovery is started from the hard drive) or run the bootable disc in the optical drive.

2. The first partition is deleted (the others remain intact) and a new system partition C: will be created.

3. This option removes all the partitions from the hard drive and creates a new system partition C:.

4.This option removes all the partitions from the hard drive and creates two new partitions C: (60% of the drive?s storage capacity) and D: (40%).

Hey guys my brother wants to recover his laptop his default and i have little experience with asus laptops. Fortunately it seems to have a recovery partition in it, the bad news is i dont know which option to pick out of the 3
Recover Windows to first partition only.
This option deletes only the first partition and allows you to keep other partitions, and to create a new system partition as drive "C".
Recover Windows to entire HD.
This option deletes all partitions from your hard disk drive and creates a new system partition as drive "C".
Recover Windows to entire HD with two partitions.
This option deletes all partitions from your hard drive and creates two new partitions "C" (25%) and "D" (75%).

Which option will let me restore to default and keep recovery partition?

Answer:Asus recovery partition which option to pick?

What partitions does he currently have?

Are his personal files (video, mp3s, pictures, etc) currently on C? Regardless, they should be backed up.

A picture of Windows Disk Management would help.

I wouldn't bother with the third choice unless he likes that 25/75 proportion. If he wants to delete all partitions and create 2 new ones, he can certainly do that manually after the recovery in any proportion he wants, not just 25/75.

It appears the last 2 choices will wipe the drive clean, which may not be what he wants---depending on his current partition setup.

The description you provided isn't exactly clear which would go back to factory default. My guess would be choice 1 as it is the only choice that does NOT say "deletes all partitions", which, if taken literally, would include deletion of the recovery partition.

You might want to contact Asus support, but that may be an exercise in frustration.

Hi All,
I'm hoping someone can help with this as I'm new to tablets and Android.
A couple of weeks ago I bought an Asus Transformer Tablet Tf300t and am very pleased with it.
Out of the box it was running Ice Cream Sandwich and then it did a firmware update to Jelly Bean 4.2.1
All went well but I noticed greatly increased battery usage since the firmware upgrade.
On ICS I was amazed at how long the charge would last having the docking keyboard as an extra battery pack. Probably lived up to the 15hrs life from fully charged.
Now however, by doing nothing different apart from the Jelly Bean upgrade, battery life has degraded significantly.
Anybody experienced this? I've done a fair bit of Googling on the subject and am baffled by some responses. Others give general advice about reducing brightness etc.
I've considered trying to go back to ICS if this is possible? Is it easy to downgrade Android?
Many thanks

i can access the bios by pressing f2 and i have tried every single combination i can think of in there.
note when i try to lance the EFI shell it tells me the file is not found.

i have tried putting a usb stick with a full copy of windows 8.1 to no avail. i have also tried booting with a linux distro again no joy. the best i can get is a half blue screen when i turn secure boot off and disable microsoft boot loader.

does anyone have any more ideas or is this to be consigned as a bugged laptop?

thanks in advance
 

Answer:Asus Intel Transformer Book not booting windows

Most of the resolutions to this issue that I have seen involve booting to a flash drive or cd and recovering Windows. You say you have tried inserting a bootable usb with Windows and Linux to no avail.

1. What has exactly happened when you've tried booting to the flash drive?
2. What key are you pressing to boot to the flash drive?
3. How are you creating these bootable flash drives?

Your only options in my opinion are using a bootable flash drive/cd to either reinstall or recover Windows. You also might be able to recover Windows without a bootable flash drive. This would require some built in recovery options that are independent of Windows or there's a second partition specially for recovering Windows. In either case, getting to this screen would require you to start the computer, press and hold one f key, and then move onto the next one if it didn't work. So f1, then f2, f3, etc.

Hello!

I've bought an ASUS Transformer Book T100TAM tablet/laptop which has Windows 8.1 preinstalled. First thing I did was create a full system image of the whole eMMC (integrated memory card, serves as a hard drive for the Transformer). That is the OS partition (C and four other (UEFI, Restore, Recover and an unnamed partition). Then I went and tested the Transformer and now I'd like to do a full restore of the image.

I copied the Macrium WinPE recovery boot files on the same external HDD where I have the Macrium image saved so I can boot it and do the recovery (Transformer only has 1 USB port, that's why I put it manually all on the same ext. HDD). All fine until right at the last screen before the recovery starts - it shows that it will recover the OS partition as E:. I want it to be C:. I guess it's still seeing the C: that's on the eMMC, even though I have deleted the partition in the recovery procedure (it seems they weren't really deleted since I can still boot normally into windows). The ext. HDD gets read as the D: drive and it wants to recover the system to an E: drive.

I could boot into the Windows installation USB and use DISKPART's Clean All command but am a little afraid since folks at the ASUS Transformer forums warned me about deleting the partitions. Initially I wanted (still want) to install my own fresh copy of Windows 8.1 and get rid of all the preinstalled ASUS apps etc. but am kind of afraid to mess it up and brick the Transformer.

Answer:Have I created the recovery disk from recovery partition correctly?

Looks okay to me. In the past, after I created a recovery disk set once I have the new laptop.I would use the Roxio software or any similar software to create ISO image of the 3 discs, and store these in a network drive or 2nd harddisk. Then I would reboot and use thinkvantage to factory restore the laptop (takes about <15 minutes now if window 7), this will restore the capability to create recovery disc again, and then I can burn another set of recovery disks. The reason I have 2 or more sets is because one time I had an issue with my T61 a long time ago and when using the recovery disk discovered that the 2nd disk is bad. From that i learn my lessons and have multiple backup in case the media was scratched, wrap under heat or i accidentally erase/overwrite my DVDRW. One of the disk out of the 3 is normally the bootup disk which you can use a CDRW disc, the other 2 is quick large in file size and DVD discs are needed.

I want to be 100 % certain I'm okay by scanning my 'recovery partition' with Kapersky which I have before installing it now. Or I could somehow make it available , perhaps visible to my PC so it can be scanned without re-installing. I'd feel safer knowing some how that all my partitions are okay. Also if there are other methods or PROVING there is no suspicious activity or viruses then I'd like to know about a method thats easy if you have one to do this. For example I check keyloggers by looking in task manger for just 'one' of the winlog.exe running. When my computer used to be infected if I went to task manager is would revolve the titles so things like winlog.exe would disappear and then re-appear. I thought this for example might be an EASY classic sign that takes 2 seconds to check if there is suspicion at least that there may be something going on.... Read more

Hi Seven Forums,

I have a problem with my Asus X52JK laptop.
Upon getting a new laptop and my sibling's laptop (conveniently) breaking down it was decided that I would give the X52 to her.

I backed up all of my personal files to an external HDD so no worries about retrieivng them. When I went to create the Recovery Discs through the utility mentioned in the title that all went smoothly and so I began the recovery process.

Booted from discs first and went through the moitons and when that was done I was expected the W7 installation screen however I was greeted with my old login screen with user account still there.

I repeated the process with the same result then decided to check the Recovery Utility and says partition does not exist yet I used MiniTool Partition Wizard and the partition is in fact there. I have tried to use EasyBCD to get around this but with no luck. I have spent roughly 2 days on this problem.

So is there a remedy for this or will I just have to download a Windows 7 ISO and install that?

I appreciate any help I can get.

Answer:ASUS AI Recovery Utility message: Partition does not exist.

Asus know they have a problem with the Recovery Partition & A1 Recovery app.

Yesterday I discovered that the power button doesn't work like it should. I used to be able to hold it for a few seconds and the tablet would boot, but that doesn't work anymore.
The tiny orange LED next to the power button lights up (slow blinks) when it is powered, and if I hold the button in, I get a quick orange blink, then about 15 slow blinks, then after 10 more seconds I will get the ASUS splash screen and see the Windows 10 spinning boot animation. If I keep holding the button, I can get it to the lockscreen, and use my finger to unlock and get to the desktop.
But as soon as I remove my finger from holding the power button, the tablet shuts down. I managed a quick workaround by using tape to hold a 5mm rolled up piece of business card to keep the power button pressed in while I used it. for a few hours.
By the way, the magnetically attached keyboard doesn't work anymore, though a Bluetooth mouse still does.
(edit: By the way, I kept this tablet in a cushioned tablet sleeve, inside a laptop section of a new backpack ever since I got it, no drops or bumps.)
Does anyone know if there an easy fix for this? Thanks in advance.

All of a sudden, my asus transformer's left speaker started to make an ugly buzzy and lound noise with any sound that is played. It might be relative that I got another weird error when both of my speakers and headphone jack did not produce any sounds. When I tried to test the sound, windows gave me "failed to play test tone".

It worthy of note that I clicked the compress drive option on my C drive a few days ago to save space, so it also might be related, or is it a hardware failure problem?

Thanks in advance.

I have an ASUS X555UA (F555 series) - Windows 10 Home 64-bit.
Laptop purchased about 2 months ago. I would like to backup the recovery partition. I called ASUS and they do not ship recovery ,media- either in or out of warranty and that it flat out isn't available. Backtracker (Which worked on Windows 8.1 PC's subsequently updated to Windows 10 does not work). In order to factory reset the PC, I would have to ship it to ASUS to be done (if under warranty it is no cost). I have Windows 10 EDU (has most features of Enterprise) I got from Dreamspark. Clean installation would wipe the recovery partition.
Is there any way to do a clean install but preserve (back up the recovery partition prior to clean installing Windows 10 EDU)?

Thank You!

Check the support section of the Asus website for updated drivers. Many 2-in-1 devices need a new driver to get Continuum working.

I've been playing YouTube videos and Steam games on my ASUS Transformer Mini T102 for the past few days. But today, after connecting my Steam controller, when I opened Microsoft Edge, the screen kept clicking on random areas! I restarted the computer, and the random clicking no longer happened. However, a new problem arose; the function of the volume buttons suddenly changed! The volume up key now takes screenshots, and the volume down key became a shortcut to open security settings. Why did this happen? Could I have gotten a virus, and is there any way to fix this?

Hey guys,

This is more applicable somewhere else but I've gotten help on here with this kind of stuff before so I figured I could try again

I've gotten to the point where I need to just reinstall windows completely on my Asus G74SX (too many problems, I want to start fresh.). I encounter an error 1029 with Asus's recovery disks that I made when I had windows working: it says it is recovering all the way to 100% then doesnt work. I am in the process of trying it again so I'll see if it actually managed to wipe my hard drive like it said it was doing, and maybe if it did actually work and reinstall windows.

However, I'd like to be able to get into the recovery partition because I would prefer restoring it with Asus as they recommend me to. However, when I hit F9, their target to get there, it doesn't do anything and just reloads the boot screen, with the Asus logo on it. I don't have an actual Wndows recovery CD so that's not an option, and at this point since my hard drive has likely been wiped by these recovery DVDs, I don't think going into Ubuntu and fixing the MBR will do me much good anymore.

Has anyone had this problem, not being able to get into recovery? Is getting their CD really my only way out of this?


It may be worth noting that before I last restarted, I marked the Windows partition as active because of a tutorial here, making it so that recovery partition isn't active anymore. I don't know if that may have affected anything and if so can... Read more

Hi this is my first post and I could do with some help...
I'm trying to fix my mums laptop for her, it's an Asus X5DIJ operating on windows 7, she has only had it a few weeks but her trial month of anti virus had run out and she was having a few probs with it so I tried to restore it to an earlier point as i thought she might have a virus, it took over an hour to do this and appeared to have frozen so i switched the power button off!!!! i now realise that was a big mistake as when it restarted i was getting a whole load of error message with missing .dll files and not being able to do a lot of things so i tried undoing the restore but it wouldn't allow it as it said restore was still running, i also tried a different restore point but it wouldn't allow that either... I then tried the repair computer options at the boot menu but it didn't work either so I thought i might as well just restore it to factory settings as she hadn't had it long enough to have put much on it anyway.... the recovery disk gets to 32% and then spits the disk out with this message

I have a ASUS P8Z68-V motherboard if that helps. Long story short, I've been having endless tech problems and need some help. I bought this setup a week ago and it had windows 8 beta on it. It's been very buggy and I swear nothing gets rid of it. It won't format, it won't recover, and every attempt of a windows OS cd has failed due to some silly error that it gives me.

The previous error which gives me the new problem i am here for was some thing about having no memory to install from. I put my old windows vista 64 bit OS cd in to install that instead of the windows 8 beta, but it told me i have no space. So, i researched it a little and found that if you partition the drive under administrative tools and disk options "set as active" or partition C drive that it may recognize it then and i'd be able toinstall the vista. Well i'm not sure if that works in normal cases but now my computer won't even boot.

After a single restart of that all i am getting is a red light on for a few seconds.. then the red light cuts off.. then i hear one beep. Nothing comes on my monitor and i have tested multiple monitors and cables. The computer will stay on with the fans running but nothing will ever show. I've tried taking out the jumpers on the motherboard for a little to reset it but that didn't work..

Would resetting the motherboard fix the problem? I'm not even sure how to do that though.

I just purchased and received a new ASUS K75DE laptop. I decided to burn a set of factory recovery disks and low and behold there is no Recovery utility installed. It's not listed in the available downloads either. Not for Windows 8 64 bit. The included manual lists it and tells you how to use it but its MIA. Looks like the manual is written for Windows 7. I e-mailed ASUS and got a link for a download. What I got in that was a utility to shrink the recovery partition and instructions on how to make a Windows Recovery disk and make an image with the "Windows 7 File Recovery" utility in control panel. No explanation as to why you need to shrink the recovery partition either. There are two of those, one 600 MB and one 20 GB. I haven't run the shrink utility yet. I did create a recovery disk, it was about 16 GB. I also made an image of the EUFI partition and OS Partition. Pressing F9 during boot up is supposed to launch the recovery option but all that gets me is the Continue, Troubleshoot, and Turn off options. Troubleshoot just leads me to Advanced options > System Image > System Image Recovery. Which is the Windows System Image recovery utility. I do believe that these are the options you normally get when you press F8 during boot up in windows 8. Pressing F8 does nothing and Windows just bots up normally. I sent another e-mail to ASUS about this and I'm just waiting for a reply. Anybody else run into a similar problem or have any advice?

You will need either an external USB CD Drive or a USB Stick 16gb or bigger.

Click start, then in the search box type recovery, look for recovery creation or recovery disk, click on it.

In the window you should see create recovery disks, choose usb stick or DVD (if you have an external DVD Drive).

Hey,

The way my recovery partition works on my netbook is when it was first used (I didnt not use it first) is it creates an image of the system when all the system has been setup then when ever I have to use the recovery it used that image to just overwirte and replace everything.

I have access to the partition where the Recovery is stored and I have my Recovery Disk but as its a netbook I have no Drive, I can copy the disk files onto my Pen drive (if my pen drive is big enough)

I want to know if there is anyway I can change it so I can use the recovery and do it from scratch like when it was first turned on (first use) because there are setting there and other items that I want to change. If I could do it by editing the files in the partition that would be easier but I can try and use the disk if needs be?

Thanks.

If you want to re-install the OS and set your computer to it's Original Factory Settings, depending on what Laptop you have there should be a special key that you press to enter the Recovery. Then you will need to format your Drive and continue the process which will then install the OS that your computer came with. More information on the Laptop would be useful.

System i386 O/S XP Prof. SP3.

I am running a USB2 external HD [FUJITSU 80 GB MHV2080AH Hard drive]. The hard drive has disappeared from the 'My Computer' Listing, at times it appears as a Generic 'Local Drive (M) ' with no other attributes of Total Size, Free Space, etc. I cannot access the data.

Hard disk utilities such as OGT Diagnostic tool, Test Disk, FileRecovery do not seem capable of accessing the disk, perhaps because it is and external USB HD, I don't know?

Any suggestion or recommended tools would be welcomed, as I couldn't find anything in the Sys Resource Kit (SysinternalsSuite) either.

RE: Disk partition recovery

Answer:Disk partition recovery

Some recovery programs specify...that the hard drive to be recovered from...must be directly connected to the motherboard...in fact, most that I have played with do so.

I would simply remove the hard drive from the enclosure...and attach it directly to the motherboard.

I have a Compaq machine with HP software. My machine is running slow (it has a 2.5 rating) and four files come up missing when it boots.

Answer:OEM Recovery Disk or Partition?

Hope this helps

"If you're like most PC users, you probably got Windows Vista with a new PC or laptop. And if you're like 99% of the population, you get your new machines from one of the major manufacturers. Dell, Acer, HP, Toshiba, Lenovo, they all have one thing in common: they don't give you a real Windows Vista installation disc with your purchase. Instead, they bundle what they call a "recovery disc" (that's if you're lucky - otherwise you'll have a recovery partition instead) with your machine and leave it at that. It doesn't matter that you just paid a thousand dollars for a machine that comes with a valid Windows Vista license - your computer manufacturer just don't want to spend the money (or perhaps take on the responsibility) of giving you a Windows Vista installation DVD to accompany your expensive purchase.
The problem is, with Windows Vista, the installation media serves more than one purpose. It's not just a way to get Windows installed, it's also the only way of recovering a borked installation. The Windows Vista DVD has a "recovery center" that provides you with the option of recovering your system via automated recovery (searches for problems and attempts to fix them automatically), rolling-back to a system restore point, recovering a full PC backup, or accessing a command-line recovery console for advanced recovery purposes.
Microsoft seems to have realized this problem, and have thankfully made a recovery disc for this purpos... Read more

Yes, get an istallation iso same edition and bit version.

Export the drivers of your current system.

Integrate the drivers into install.wim and boot.wim image 2 of your installation iso.

Alternatively, use an imaging program to make a backup of your entire system - probabaly simpler for you, quicker, too.

Have a 64 bit HP Pavilion Home Premium desktop that has become corrupted and we'd like to get it back to factory settings.

I can use F11 to access System Recovery, and the first step is formatting the hard drive. It stays on that screen for at least 15 minutes with the completion pct never moving off 0%. It eventually errors with a 1002 msg, saying I should contact HP for support. Right!!!

If I use a Vista 64 CD (not from HP - an iso image I downloaded and burnt using another computer), I'm on the green and blue Vista screen (after I press any key to boot from CD, and after it finishes loading Windows) for just over 8 minutes (I actually timed it - twice) with no writing or images on the screen - just a cursor, before it gives me a BSOD

Answer:Cannot Reinstall from Recovery Partition or Disk

That error is related to either bad memory or problematic drivers. Considering that it happened with a installation disk I'm inclined to think memory I suggest that you test it with memtest: Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

Run it for at least 3 passes.
