    How do I install this recovery zip file on my laptop?


    The laptop that Iím using right now needs to have Windows 10 reinstalled. So the situation is this, my Windows 10 was having issues, so I clean installed windows 10 using the recovery in the hard drive, but the recovery img was literally just windows 10 without any of the prerequisite drivers, like WiFi, sound, so I'm stuck with a laptop that runs Windows 10, but nothing works because there are no drivers. (who provides a recovery img without drivers!!). In addition, the device manager was no help either as there is not list of device names so I couldn't search it up online and install it either.

    So I contacted the manufacturer for drivers and they pointed me instead to the entire recovery RAR file below, which they claim has all the required drivers. I extracted it, and it
    contains files and folders instead of an ISO. I believe this collection of files/folders to be a recovery. See the picture below for what is inside. My question is how do I use this recovery image to install on the laptop?

    I know how to install Windows 10 ISOs onto USBs to reinstall computers, and I even tried copying all the files from that RAR onto a USB and booting from it, but it just runs a CMD and then exits without having done anything. Iím at a complete loss as to what or how to utilize this recovery. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    See below for a screenshot of what the RAR file contains. Also find the link below for the recovery RAR files if anyone wants to take a stab (which I very much want to right now...in the physical sense)

    Post the contents of 0_flash.bat.

    BTW: Judging by the spelling of "Reamde.txt", doesn't look promising.

    No problem, will do that once I get home. Also, the readme.txt contains gibberish, I think it's encoded in chinese ASCII but it comes out all weird.

    I bet the installers for your device drivers can be found in all of those language specific folders. If you are using an English Windows, open the EN-US folder and see what it contains.

    About the 0_flash.bat, my guess is, judging by the fact this is part of manufacturer's recovery system, it's for flashing BIOS.

    So opening up those folders just has a bootmgr.efi.mui file, the exact same as in all the other language folders. This is what I posted in another forum, hopefully it will help.

    This is what the bat file says:


    cd /d %~dp0
    fptw.exe -f I8211V6MIPI_V1.7.6G_R008_L1B1T1C65H0_LogoKM1082_20150909.bin
    pause
    c:\windows\system32\shutdown.exe -r -t 0


    This is in the scripts folder:



    And I finally got the readme decrypted, see the original mandarin then the google translate version:

    Basically, that looks like the contents of a recovery partition that would be used by either manufacturer extra software or possibly bios to restore the computer to factory state, and probably factory crapware as well. I think about the best you could do with it is extract the drivers from it, if you can find them. I wonder if they are included in the install.wim or install.esd file in the sources directory. Is there an install.wim or install.esd file in the sources directory? And how big is it?

    BTW, the link you posted in your OP is dead....

    Thanks for telling me, about the link, not much I can do about it, guess the manufacturer took it offline???

    Also, regarding your question about the wim/esd file, is it possible to copy that wim file into an ISO and install it from there? The WIM file is 6GB by the way

    There is also a USMTT.pkg, would that be where all the drivers are kept? If so, how do I install it?

    So, it looks like the WIM file would contain more than just Vanilla windows which would be just over 3GB in size (unless it contains more than 1 version of Windows). What I would try is open an elevated ("run as administrator") command prompt. Run:

    REAGENTC.EXE /setosimage /path D:\Sources /index 1

    The path in red will be the path to the folder that contains the install.wim file.

    then REAGENTC /enable

    If those commands are successful, then reboot the computer into recovery (hold down shift when you click restart). Then try to reset the computer and it should use the install.wim file. You might have to copy the install.wim file to a different partition with a different drive letter than Windows, though, for it to work. Not sure about that.

    Thanks just tried that. Didn't work though, it reinstalled Win10 but no drivers installed. The wim file is still there though
