    From the screen shot, you can see that Windows cannot locate the Windows RE Location so the status is disabled.
    I saw that you have 2 different versions of OS. One on disk 0 and the other on disk 1. On disk 0, you probably did an upgrade to 10 from 7 so Windows create an extra Recovery partition next to F: Drive. If your nephew did a clone from disk 0 to disk 1. The recovery partition is off by one since he did not clone the 100MB to disk 1.

    You need to find out if WinRe.wim is actually being relocated to partition 2 of disk 1. You can also try from admin command prompt to run:

    1. diskpart
    2. select disk 1
    3. select partition 2
    4. assign letter=R
    5. exit
    6. reagentc.exe /setreimage /path R:\Recovery\WindowsRE /target C:\windows
    7. Try create a recovery disk to see if it works


    NOTE: If you take a look at my screen shot. You'd see the WinRe.wim is located in disk 0 partition 1 and the status is enabled.
