    How do I show "(Recovery Partition)" in Disk Management?





    (what my recovery partition contains, am I missing a file?)

    I copied the recovery partition over to another block of unallocated space since it was in the way of a partition I wanted to merge with my Windows partition.

    After doing that, Disk Management displayed "Primary Partition" instead of "Recovery Partition".

    How do I get it to show "Recovery Partition"? I re-registered WindowsRE using reagentc /setreimage, I even obtained new files for WinRE from the install.wim in my ESD folder, used 450 MB on the dot, and I tried this diskpart script:

    Code:
    rem == HideRecoveryPartitions-UEFI.txt
    select disk 0
    select partition 3
    remove
    set id=de94bba4-06d1-4d40-a16a-bfd50179d6ac
    gpt attributes=0x8000000000000001
    It still displays "Primary Partition". All I want is for Disk Management to identify the partition as the Recovery Partition.

    Also, what is the default PBRImage Location (the one that uses install.wim, not winre.wim) for Windows 10? I'm currently using a custom one, but I'm curious of the default one.

    So despite my computer being able to boot into a UEFI-environment, I had to use a BIOS-environment script to get the desired result.

    Code:
    rem == HideRecoveryPartitions-BIOS.txt
    select disk 0
    select partition 3
    set id=27
    remove
    list volume
    exit
