Hi all. I accidentally messed up my boot options and am unable to boot into windows re/pe to perform the recovery. How? I tried to install windows 7 unsuccessfully and the installation failed saying there's and unsigned driver involved.


I made this attempt while trying to solve high doc/latency issues with my E1102 killer WiFi card. I don't know what's wrong. I got it installed by gentech and their customer service e hasn't replied me since a few days.

My recovery partitions and data are intact as I used a partition utility to check and explore
However the boot options are messed up.

I was wondering if anyone with strong command line knowledge could write me a batch file to fix the broken link between my boot and the recovery environment and also recovery image.

Fyi the only thing I swapped out is the WiFi card. Everything else remains the same. My drive is a sandisk OEM SSD.

If anyone could come up with a fix for my dpc problem it would be great too. But for now. One step at a time.

Sorry I am posting from a mobile. I can still boot into windows 8.1 but it no longer see a the recovery image when I try the f9 for recovery option and asks for recovery media. Frankly its a mess up even if not a cruddy one. I am not as savvy as I used to be so hopefully the internet will bless me with a solution haha...

dvdt24, it looks possible to re-set the recovery info in the upgraded Windows:
