They are just unused remains of previous install.

No reference in bcd output to RECOVERY partition. WIN7 reinstall did rewrite the harddrive's MBR.
Recovery to factory settings can't work now in my opinion.

Do you still want to be able to use "restore to factory settings"? If so.... explain how you should start the procedure according to the manual.

Can we see a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

You might be able to relink Recovery to the F8 Advanced Boot options menu which is reinstalled with Win7 trying this: Need help with Asus N53JQ recovery

If not our colleague SIW2 can likely give the commands to rewrite the link to F8 so it is bootable without adding it as a Dual Boot as in the workaround I first gave.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Guys thank you for all responses and ideas but I think we can consider this thread as solved and closed. The computer is running so there is no point of wasting your energy and brain cells on this one anymore. Thanks.

I would not have asked for a screenshot of Disk Mgmt if it was wasting anyone's time. More than half the time we see problems when we ask for these.

Likewise, just because you don't need to run Recovery right now doesn't mean that it should not be re-linked and ready if you need it.

We dont do half-baked work here. That's why these are by far the top tech forums in web history .
