    Hello Typhoon, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    This is normal when you haven't created a custom recovery image.

    If you like, you can verify if the default recovery image works by performing a "Refresh Windows" using the method in the tutorial below, and see if you get a prompt for installation media at step 6. If you don't, then the default recovery image is good.

    Just be sure to cancel the refresh at step 8.

    Oh, I can boot into it myself. I was just concerned that it wasn't prompting me or coming up at any point on its own. I guess that answers my question though. Thanks for letting me know!

    After an in-place upgrade from 8.1 to 10, I ran "reagentc /info" ...

    The install.wim in the Recovery image location was for 8.1... so I replaced it with the Win10 1809 from an iso I pulled from Microsoft. Is that all there is to this?

    Yes... and I deleted the other files/folders in that OEM Recovery partition apart from the RecoveryImage folder that was on the location path. That partition is 20GB. Does it need that? Can I shrink it to what it takes to hold the wim file, or does the wim file extract in that same partition. Or am I simply confused?

    Hello Telos,

    You could delete the one for Windows 8.1 if you like, but you would need to use the method in the tutorial below to create a reset recovery image for Windows 10.

    Didn't I essentially do that? Rather than issue the command...
    reagentc /setosimage /path "location\ResetRecoveryImage" /index 2 (for me "Home")

    I simply placed the Win10 install.wim in that location that the Recovery image was already pointed to (after I deleted the 8.1 install.wim).

    The command is needed to register the reset image. Otherwise, it may look for and cannot find the 8.1 version.

    Thank you, Brink. I decided to begin over using the Create Reset Recovery Image in the Windows 10 link you provided. When I issued the reagentc command, it reported successful.

    Then, I tried Shift-Restart to see what I had. When I selected Troubleshoot... I only had 2 choices... one about changing UEFI/Firmware, and another about Advanced options (like safe mode for example), but no Reset choice.

    What am I missing?

    In that case, it may be best to clean install Window 10 when able.

    Thanks. I'll save that option for a rainy day. I'll keep the install.wim along with the base set of ASUS drivers I have for this unit on its own partition.

    FWIW, I exlorered one of the other OEM partitions (I have 3) and found WinRE present with file dates that matched the day of my Win10 upgrade. Interestingly (to me anyway) is that reagentc shows WinRE disabled, with no location. Should I give "reagentc /setreimage" a shot followed by "reagentc /enable"?

    Seems harmless in my situation.
