Thread: G46 Recovery

  1. #1

    G46 Recovery

    I just bought a G46 (I love it), and I have a question about the recovery partition? I have had multiple gaming computers and have been able to recover them all very easily with no problems. My main problem is that with this G46 is that there is a hidden recovery partition on the harddrive but how exactly do I access it? I know with my older ASUS computers that all I had to do was press F9 right after BIOS to get into recovery. Now with this one, if I hit F9 like I'm supposed to, it crashes and gives me the error "0x000225". What exactly is this error and how do I get access to this hidden partition? I have looked at the ASUS support site and there is no recovery software for the G46 like there is for the G55 and G75.

    That's...not normal. Sounds like a corrupted recovery partition? You may be able to do a boot sector repair on that but I'd be concerned about why it had a problem in the first place. It might be a sign that the storage device has issues. Looking at your other posts, are you booting off of a cloned drive? Because it seems the clone may not have been perfect. Either that or your drive may be corrupting sectors which is baaad for a young drive.

    IT is a cloned drive but even on the original drive it is the same way so maybe it was original corrupted partition in the first place? I have done every thing possible to try to fix it and have no idea. It drives me crazy so I kept the original drive free and clear just in case something happens I have a hard copy to put back into the computer. What would be good third party (free) for making a recovery backup partition?

    Not sure about free. Acronis is a popular choice but it costs money.

    Hmm, that is a tricky one however to access the recovery option on the G46VW (in Windows 8), go to Settings, Change PC Settings, General, (Scroll Down & Select either) Refresh Your PC Without Affecting Your Files or Remove Everything & Reinstall Windows.
