    How to restore my asus laptop from the recovery partition

    Help, a few days ago I tried to reset my asus gx501 windows 10 laptop but encountered the "There was as a problem resetting your PC" error, I tried almost every method of fixing it but had no choice to do a clean installation using the Microsoft windows 10 installation tool thingy. Now I can reset my PC again I was wondering is there anyway to reset my laptop back to factory default settings by using the hidden recovery partition. Sorry for my weird tone/English and many thanks in advance.

    A search suggests:

    - assuming you still have the recovery partition on your disk.

    Depending on how old your laptop is (it seems some models are current) you may well be restoring a version of Win 10 which is an older major build. If your laptop did not come with the Creator's build, that means you would then go through the upgrade procedure subsequently- effectively another reinstallation (keeping more or less everything).

    A clean installation of the current Win 10 build using a downloaded iso is the most rational way forward. A factory restore will reinstall any trialware packaged with that.

    I would also recommend you do a disk check if you've had problems just in case before undertaking a time consuming procedure:
    Hard disk sentinel (trial).

    Also please note that routinely using disk imaging (e.g. Macrium Reflect (free) + its boot medium + external storage for image sets) means you can restore your PC to a previous working state from your most recent image.

    This can frequently save you doing clean installs, and a lot of time, even if your disk fails.
    Images act as a full backup, and can also be used with a 3rd party program to transfer programs and data to a new PC or OS.

    It is possible to create a boot entry that references the hidden recovery image. But before that you need to take a look at the recovery partition and where the boot file or the recovery application is located and also get a general idea of what type of recovery your computer uses.

    Best way is to use the F9 method...IF it guarantee anymore since you clean installed Windows.
