in bcd.txt:
device ramdisk=[\Device\HarddiskVolume2]\Recovery\WindowsRE\Winre.wim

ramdisksdidevice partition=\Device\HarddiskVolume2
ramdisksdipath \Recovery\WindowsRE\boot.sdi

------
\Device\HarddiskVolume2 is called P now. Both files are in that folder. So far no problem.


You current OS entry in bcd is correctly linked to the recovery environment. So no problems so far.

in elevated command prompt
Code:
bcdedit /displayorder {3fdfb2d6-9436-11e3-af74-0026b916ffac} /addfirst
succesfull? If so, reboot and select "Windows Recovery Environment" in menu. Works? What error?
Have to go.... back tomorrow

the code was successful, after reboot in win RE 'repair your computer' offers 2 options:
Ramdisk option and win 7, as you can see on the pics.
When I went to Ramdisk the error of 2nd picture happened.
Still couldn't reset to factory settings.

I have the same problem. I have a Dell inspiron N5010.
I press the F8 button and click repair but windows start normally...!
I tried the proposed procedure
(i.e. reagentc /disable
then
reagentc /enable)
but it didn't fix the problem.

I attach the bcd file:
