    Ah, I see it's been deprecated in Win 10. Ignore my last post.

    How do you create a custom image like you could do with recimg in Win 8.1?

    Edit: I just found out I don't have Winre.wim in this folder c:\windows\system32\recovery. That seems to be why Windows RE is not and cannot be, enabled.

    >reagentc /enable
    REAGENTC.EXE: The Windows RE image was not found.

    Based on the output of reagentc /info. Your Disk 0 partitions scheme is a mess. The locations for both Recovery/Factory partitions are blank so you cannot create a Recovery Disk nor Recover from factory image. Shift+Restart also will not start into Recovery Environment.

    WinRe.wim is not in this folder but in the 450MB partition

    Good thing I use Macrium for image backups then.

    Is it repairable? I really don't want to do a clean install to fix this, at least not now. Maybe later.

    I wonder what would happen if I did a clean install, deleting all partitions, then after the install, restore the C: partition from a Macrium backup? That should fix the partitioning problems and leave me right where I am as far as Win 10 install.

    Thoughts on this?

    Use Macrium to mount the 450MB partition and check if WinRE.wim existed in this partition then use reagentc to fix it.

    It's not that simple. New installation will assign different GUID to C drive and won't be able to boot. However, one can rebuild the BCD to fix it.

    450MB partition is empty according to Macrium.

    How would I rebuild the BCD after I did this? I think I'd like to give it a try as I can always do a full restore from Macrium if it doesn't work.

    ... and many thanks for all the help. This is an area I still have a lot of learning about to do.

    It is not empty. Turn on Show Hidden Files/Folders or use: Treesize to see it.

    The Macrium Reflect rescue disk has a utility under the restore menu to fix startup problems. That would restore the BCD entry.

    I didn't mention this but I got rid of the recovery partition. Thinking that was my problem I did another update via WU and even with the Recovery partition Advanced Startup still had the same problem. However I think I know what caused it. Have a look at another post I made to Brink about the issue. Any thoughts on what I said there?

    Can I chime in here for a question?
    I have a similar but not the exact same anomaly .
    Are you saying I can do a clean install of win 10 and use macrium to restore just the C: partition then use macrium again to fix the bcd?
