    Don't want to derail this thread too far. I think I have probably got the advice I was seeking. Thank you all for contributing!
    This is what my Nextbook Flexx 10 tablet looks like. I have the original Windows 8.1 Bing entire 32gb memory image created from Macrium Reflect Free stored on a NAS.

    I even deleted that 16mb "MSR" partition that everyone says is needed on a GPT disk.

    FYI, From the reagentc output in post #4. The location of the factory Image is already broken due to creation of additional 450MB Recovery Partition. Otherwise, it should have shown the location of the 5.1 GB Image. Same as for Recovery partition. Since you don't care about this. It can be ignored.

    Unless bios has the functionality of restoring from the original factory image on the 5.1gb factory recovery partition, can you explain how the image stored there can be restored?
    On a new laptop. If you run bcdedit /enum all. You should see the entries on how they set up the custom function key to invoke this partition.
    Example:
    bcdedit.exe /SET {BOOTMGR} custom:0x54000001 %guid%
    bcdedit.exe /SET {BOOTMGR} customactions 0x1000085000001 0x54000001

    F11 ===> 0x8500

    I myself have upgraded 10 computers in my house to Windows 10, including a Nextbook 10" tablet with 32gb memory instead of a hard drive, and have no problems at all. Windows 10 has been the best OS ever on the 10 computers in my house.
    Yep.

    I suppose you could point reagentc /setosimage to the install.wim on the 5.1 GB image and then Windows reset would probably go back to the original factory OS.

    Just a quick followup as something a bit unexpected happened while removing the restore. It looks like Windows 10 is actually smarter than I expected it to be. Firstly, I removed the previous Windows versions via the disk cleanup tool. Then I downloaded Minitool Partition Wizard and watched a couple tutorial vids so that I'd know how to delete, move and resize partitions with it. But when I opened it up the 5.1GB partition is gone and the space already allocated to C: It looks like the disk cleanup tool not only removed the Windows.old folder from C: but it also removed the Win 8.1 restore partition and re-allocated the space. I checked with diskpart and it looks to be accurate. Who'd have thought aye!
