Windows 7: pre installed software...

25 Nov 2009   #11

Windows 10 Pro x64 x2 Windows 10 Enterprise x64, Ubuntu


What tends to happen is that the recovery partition is an encrypted or otherwise non readable format, but it contains boot files. the Fkey press actually just sets the partition as active and reboots - often from an "are you sure" type screen maybe with a link to the actual OS recovery tools - held on the original small boot partition - like Microsoft's own 100MB partition.

If you want to build your own recovery system, Paragon software do a form of this available with their higher end suites, called the backup capsule - others may too.

Windows image backups rely on the bootable recovery options either on the hard disk or install disk rather than make the image bootable.
