Windows 7 Error Recovery and Advanced Boot Options

Are the startup repair files installed on the hidden partition? I found this extract from a book does anyone agree with this? I unplugged an system with a 100MB hidden partition which contains the startup repair files but i recieved Figure 8.16 and not Figure 8.17.
anyone with any info on this??? I need to adjust windows so it doesnt auto repair..


Windows 7 Error Recovery and Advanced Boot Options

If Windows 7 is unable to start normally, Windows will display the Windows Error Recovery dialog. On a system that does not have Startup Repair files installed, the Windows Error Recovery dialog looks like the one in Figure 8.16. You can use a Windows installation disc or a Windows repair disc to repair your computer.
Figure 8.16 Windows 7 displays this type of message if Startup Repair files are not available on a system that can’t start.

TIP
To learn how to create a Windows 7 repair disc, see “Preparing a Windows-Based Computer or Tablet for Easier Troubleshooting,” Chapter 1, p.37.

On a system that has Startup Repair files installed, the Windows Error Recovery dialog provides the options shown in Figure 8.17 when your system can’t start.
Figure 8.17 Windows 7 displays this type of message if Startup Repair files are available on a system that can’t start.

On a system that didn’t shut down properly the last time it was used (for example, if you used the power button because the system locked up), Windows Error Recovery offers Safe Mode options, Last Known Good Configuration (advanced), or Start Windows Normally.
If you suspect that Windows is not working as well as it could, but Windows 7 does not launch Windows Error Recovery, you can still choose from these and other options by pressing F8 repeatedly on startup until the Advanced Boot Options menu shown in Figure 8.18 appears.

WinRE files are in winre.wim on C:/

I would not move or tamper with it or System Recovery Options onboard repairs will not run and System Repair Disk cannot be made.

I guess i am mostly curious do you mean the hidden partition on C:/ as you know once you boot into PE the system partition is allocated drive letter C:/.

would this not work?
bcdedit /set {default} recoveryenabled No

is the extract correct in the difference between Figure 8.16 and Figure 8.17??

Does anyone know how we would get Figure 8.16 and Figure 8.17.

What hidden partition on C Drive? C is a partition.

If you're referring to system reserved partition it is not large enough to house the winre.wim file which I've already said resides on C in system 32 recovery folder.

C: is the partition which contains the hidden partition as you know when booting into winPE and viewing DISKPART the hidden sytem partition is allocated the C: letter and windows is allocated D: letter, all depending on system setup if the 100MB hidden partiton was created.

Sticking to the topic - I have a system with a hidden partition (which contains winre - startup repair files???) and when i shut down windows improperly i get Figure 8.16 when "in theory going by this extract" i should get Figure 8.17.

Is this extract wrong? Im really interested to know what affects the difference between Figure 8.16 and Figure 8.17.
