Windows 7: Disc ASUS Recovery Error 1029, cannot boot into that recov. Partition.

Disc ASUS Recovery Error 1029, cannot boot into that recov. Partition.

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 it be reversed?

Thanks

Hey never mind. I think I can fix the problem. I found a link to a clean Windows 7 ISO i can flash and download that will allow me to freshly install Windows with none of Asus' bloat ware (even though thats pretty limited, it would still be nice to have a truly clean Windows 7 install.). Never mind!

This: Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

But if the Recovery Disks didn't wipe Recovery you maybe able to get it to run by marking Active then triggering it with F9. If not try wiping HD with Diskpart Clean Command before runnning the Disks, or follow the tutorial above to get a perfect Clean REinstall.

Hey, thanks for the reply. Fortunately all it took was using the ISO for the OEM Windows 7 Home Premium, just using the Windows application that makes a DVD bootable, and running it on my computer. However, when I did the install, I kept the recovery partition there, just because Asus recommends against it. Is it needed at all anymore, now that I have an OEM Windows installation? Can I just go into the Partition manager in Windows now that it's installed and delete that partition, then claim that space? Or will I need to go through with something more?

Thanks

If the Recov partition is on the right you can delete it and extend C into the space: Partition or Volume - Extend

If it's to the left of C then use free Partition Wizard bootable CD to delete and Resize C to the left: Partition Wizard Move/Resize Partition Video Help.
