    Please perform in this order:
    a) HD Tune
    b) Sea Tools
    c) TestDisk
    d) Chkdsk

    The recovery partition was labeled with W: earlier in the thread.
    Other partitions can be labeled after completing the other tests.

    oh crap, you were looking at that incorrectly.

    I had the windows recovery drive I was attempting to make (that started this whole thing) inserted at the time with the label RECOVERY and drive letter W lol.....

    might have been looking at that? The recovery partition never had one until now.

    yea i dont know whats going on with windows. (maybe it was the assigning and removing of the drive letter to the recovery partition...) but now it shows . Or maybe it was the doing a chkdsk against it when it had the letter. weiiird

    1) Please upload V2 and DM:
    BSOD - Posting Instructions

    2) Make a new restore point:
    Create System Restore Point in Windows 10

    3) Open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste (all at one time)

    Code:
    bcdedit /enum all
    reagentc /info
    diskpart
    lis dis
    sel dis 0
    det dis
    lis vol
    lis par
    sel par 1
    det par
    sel par 2
    det par
    sel par 3
    det par
    sel par 4
    det par
    sel par 5
    det par
    When these have completed > right click on the top bar or title bar of the administrative command prompt box > left click on edit then select all > right click on the top bar again > left click on edit then copy > paste into the thread

    yep, restore point/macrium image is first order of business assuming this actually works (creating recovery drive illustrating partition is back in practice)

    will report back with the rest after that!

    whelp, with the slew of things im trying to address right now - i figured id circle back to this one.

    recovery partition is all fine n dandy if i assign a drive letter to it. the minute i remove the drive letter POOF. reagentc /info shows disabled again.

    defeated.

    in place upgrade time.. its my understanding that doesnt disturb your current environment, akin to what happens when you do a version upgrade via windows update. sounds like the way to go.

    will do. just got home from the gym. the windows in place upgrade has it back as enabled and i can create a recovery drive meaning its working.

    problem was, that was the case before as well. Disk management still sees it as empty so whatever it is, its still not completely fixed.

    beginning to think the partition itself is bad. However as a test I deleted the recovery partition and did the in place upgrade, as i expected windows to create a new one. It did not.

    sigh.

    Here are the results, with little idea what im looking it, it looks like it isnt identifying the file system of the recovery partition properly? All other tools see it as ntfs, windows isnt however. How can i assign it a file system?

    actually it shows as offline too? perhaps thats why it doesnt see the file system. how can i bring it online is probably the right question to be asking

    ok, so preliminary results are in.

    a diskpart list disk. select disk 0. list vol. select vol 1. online vol. seems to have brought it online. diskpart now shows it as ntfs.

    after thinking eureka i backed out only to do a reagentc /info and see disabled. Aaaargh.

    I followed with a reagentc /enable which said "cant find recovery" or whatever that special line we all know and love is.

    so, just before literally banging my head in defeat - i closed out. re-opened the prompt, and ran /enable a second time. Success it says.

    huh? So i do a reagentc /info again. Sure as garbagee. There it is in all its glory. I check disk management. Shows the proper sizing information.

    Now.. im going to restart. and pray with all of my soul it persists and is working on the other side. If so - i think the crux of the issue has been identified - and resolved.

    Again, preliminarily it seems the volume was offline and needed to be broughten online.

    After a few probably un necessary restores and a windows in place upgrade that at least taught me how that behaves (so wasnt a waste) i think we may have it.

    BBS!

    - - - Updated - - -

    and defeated. a restart and reagentc /info shows it as disabled again.

    reagentc /enable shows "the windows RE image is not found"

    a list vol shows it as offline again.

    so NOW the question becomes. why does the volume keep going offline and how can i fix THAT?

    argh.

    - - - Updated - - -

    mmmmm.

    when the problem turns out to be something so simple and the wrong trees have been barked up the entire time.

    again preliminary.

    automount seems to have been disabled. no idea why. or how. never did it myself as i didnt know it was a thing. Not to mention you'd think the in place upgrade would have reset something like that to the default.

    so its re-enabled, im going to bring the volume online, and im going to restart. (in a few, got a download going)

    assuuuuming its going to be fixed this time for real though.

    occams razor they call it right?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Well, thats a wrap! problem solved. and a saga of a thread ending with a tidbit of info for people at future peril.

    waaaay more satisfying that it should be!

    thank you for getting me on the right track @zbook
