At that point the only thing you could do would be to procure some physical restore media from ASUS if such a thing exists, I don’t know or get a drive image from someone else who still has that partition.
Those two options would allow you to restore the hidden partition but you’d be replacing everything on the drive. Last edited by xeromist; at PM. I have not done a clean install The F9 option at boot up does not work All of the recovery files are still present as well as the eSupport files.
I mainly ask for future reference and just to know how or if there is a way to restore the F9 option Last edited by MacLeod; at PM. Yes “remove everything” is a clean install. Just looked this up in my manual Pages 81, 82 I don’t see a recovery option using the F9 key. I think since windows 10 Asus is just using the Windows restore recovery? Last edited by Clintlgm; at PM.
Actually, the reset using “Remove Everything” is not a “Clean Install”. The “Remove Everything” option mainly just removes all of the software beyond the normal drivers and preloaded software, as well as user settings. See here: All of your personal files will be deleted and your settings will be reset. All apps that you installed will be removed.
Only apps that came with your PC will be reinstalled. Remove Everything This is to reset Windows Reinstalls Windows 10 and removes all your personal files. Removes apps and drivers you installed. Removes changes you made to settings. Removes any apps your PC manufacturer installed. If you’re planning to donate, recycle, or sell your PC, use this option and choose to fully clean the drive. This might take an hour or two, but it makes it harder for other people to recover files you’ve removed.
Reinstalls any apps your PC manufacturer installed on your PC. This option isn’t available on all PCs. And again, just to be clear, I am merely looking for a way to restore the F9 operation If the restore partition is still present then it may just be a case of repairing the boot record. There are tools that can alter boot records but beyond that I don’t know if it’s actually possible and what steps you’d need to take.
Well then what you described as “Remove everything” is the same result that the old F9 restore would do? On my stock GVY there is only one recovery partition. I have a G75VW that shipped with Windows 7 at the time Windows 8 was about to roll out so i got Windows 8 for just a couple bucks. The F9 recovery was active and worked fine.
After that, the F9 function was not available. Later, when I went to do a complete wipe and reinstall using the recovery disk, the system would not boot with the upgraded bios. I was eventually able to do a reinstall after doing a very risky and not recommended bios rollback. But you may be able to access them buy going through the Settings, Recovery, Advanced Startup in your Windows 10 machine.
However I did not upgrade to windows 8 Pro. After 8. Still on my BIOS This G75VW still is working to day with windows 8. Of course when I clean Installed windows 8. Which for me was no issue Since I use Macrium Reflect for restore if needed far less complicate and much faster restore. Watching what all people have gone through with the G75VW to get them running on windows 10 I just decided to stay with Windows 8. I run Classic Shell on all my computers so they all run and work pretty much the same whether 8.

ASUS Recovery can be activated through two paths: From Settings of Windows 10 OS or clicking F9 or F12 key on the keyboard during boot up. I have an ASUS XA laptop. It came with Windows 7 but later I installed Windows 8. So essentially what I’m trying to do is reset the PC back.
