    If warranty is already expired, why do you need a factory recovery ? ( when everybody usually want a clean install ). I am at a loss here.

    In a MBR partitioned disk, giving OEM Recovery partition the "Active" mark can be used to kick start the recovery process. However GPT partition scheme changes everything and this old trick won't work anymore. If the installation image inside the "Recovery" partition is in "WIM" format, you may be able to manually restore the OS from it.

    Why would you want to replace a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 with the grossly inferior factory install - larded with bloatware and useless duplicate utilties that intefere with better versions built into Win7?

    If you're having problems with Win7 then do the Clean Reinstall over again following the steps in the blue link to get it perfect, then afterwards create a Win7 backup image to use in place of future reinstalls.

    If you want to restore to factory condition to sell the PC, you can try to Boot Recovery Partition using EasyBCD from within Win7.

    Welcome to our Forum Ripshock.

    Please remember we never try to give advice to hurt but only to help.
    So I'm like the others, confused.
    Could you tell us why you want to use the OEM PARTITION for.
    After you did this
    i have clean installed windows 7, updated Bios, my bios boot configuration are reset
    ,
    What are you trying to do within the OEM partition.

    I gave you a way to Boot Recovery Partition using EasyBCD if the Recovery partition has lost its ability to boot from hotkey due to reinstall.

    Make sure to back up externally the data on the two data partitions because Factory Recovery sometimes will wipe the whole drive even if it offers to contain Recovery to C.

    But remember there's no way a reinstall following the steps to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 would not be much better than the factory crapware install. Since you're here and we specialize in these reinstalls, why not do it right and make your sister really happy?

    Try Diskpart from a System Recovery Options Command line. Use Win7 DVD if necessary to avoid password glitches.

    The Commands are here: Assign, change, or remove a drive letter: Storage Services; Local File Systems

    Let us know how this goes.

    Try all System Recivery options methods to get to a Command Line that will work.

    If you need bootable win7 installation flash stick see Steps 1 and 2 of Reinstall tutorial.

    You'll boot Recovery from a Dual boot menu that EasyBCD creates.
