    When posting from notepad or text after seeing problems in the displayed results > click edit > post the text again replacing the existing post > save (this typically fixes the displayed results)

    It can be edited now with the results.

    If there are any problems using the edit with a second entry then post a share link using one drive, drop box, or google drive

    Kyhi commented earlier in the thread about the Windows upgrade relocation of the enabled recovery partition creating a second recovery partition.

    The clean install default partitions are:

    |recovery|System|Reserved|Primary

    During a Windows upgrade there often is an attempt to install a larger recovery partition.
    Windows does not enlarge the partition allocated to the prior recovery partition and creates a new recovery partition to the right side of the primary partition.
    This creates a second recovery partition.

    |recovery|System|Reserved|Primary| > |recovery|System|Reserved|Primary|recovery|

    Running reagentc /info typically displays enabled to the new larger partition.
    The old recovery partition is < 1 GB.
    It is typically left there until the next clean install.
    After the clean install the process then repeats with the next Windows upgrade if the size of the new recovery partition is larger than the original recovery partition.

    At some point in the future the default layout could change to where the first partition is system instead of recovery.

    See if the computer can or cannot boot into safe mode:

    yea thats what im hoping for/betting on is the re-ordering down the road. It would make more sense. People such as myself plan on doing a fresh install basically never. I have this install so wrapped around my person as far as my workflow goes and customization preferences, never mind all the software i use, its unfathomable.

    So the point being that 15 years from now i intend to be on the same windows install rolling along with macrium images i hopefully never need. The result would likely be a lot of recovery partitions ;p

    This was a small speed bump but at least i learned a little something. that has value.
