View Full Version : Lost G75VW Recovery

07-05-2015, 10:20 PM
Hi like many I have lost access to my recovery partition on my G75VW after updating to Win 8.1. It appears to still be there and healthy but I have exhausted most of the online threads and still cannot access it. Also cannot get Backtracker to work. Wondering if anyone out there has a usable factory image that they could send me to dmose81980@gmail.com. I would appreciate immensely. Alternatively if anyone has any ideas as to how to access partition, would love to hear that also. Thanks very much

This is long thread but I think they finally did restore the recovery partition. However it is pretty much usless as you would need to reinstall 8 the upgrade to 8.1 all over again. Much easier to just Clean install get your ISO Here (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/create-reset-refresh-media) Download all your hardware drivers here Asus Support Downloads (http://support.asus.com/download/options.aspx?SLanguage=en&type=1)

Yes you will need to create your own. Macrium if a good free program for this. Here is more information on creating a custom recovery image (http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/3610-refresh-windows-8-create-use-custom-recovery-image.html) Here is another source on creating custom Recovery partitions (http://www.howtogeek.com/167831/everything-you-need-to-know-about-creating-custom-recovery-images-for-windows-8/) You too can goggle and find other discussions on creating custom recovery partitions in the end its just as easy to use Macrium Reflect Free to create and update a Disk image or even a C:\ Partition to restore anytime you need too.
