Restore from Factory Images - Eeepc 1005P
Posted 08 December 2010 - 02:47 PM
Anyway this is how far I have gotten with this so far:
I already have a bootable usb key (I just used hirens as I was too lazy to do it myself, and this has alot of useful diagnostic tools on it anyway)
I have managed to unhide the restore partition, and locate the restore images. These are in WIM format.
How do I go about restoring these, and has anyone done this manually without the factory DVD without any issues?

Before to execute the Recovery process save your personnal data and documents!!
Disable Bootstraper in Bios setup before you perform recovery from USB Flash disk, external optical drive, or hidden partition

disable Boot Booster:
1. Start the system and press <F2> on bootup to show the POST screen.
Press <F2> again to enter the BIOS setup.
2. Set Boot Booster to [Disabled].
If you fail to see the POST screen or enter the BIOS setup by doing

Unmountable boot volume
factory.wim file in Recovery drive
You can also try to install a restore point!
You can ask the manufacturer to send you the Restore DVD for your computer. I've made many times for friends and for me!
*Edit 2: Hirenís Boot CD is considered warez. This makes the entire disc illegal in most jurisdictions.

Basic Info -
F2 for BIOS
ALT+F10 for Recovery (label="PQSERVICE") with BIOS=D2D Recovery Enabled
Hidden Partition Type=12 (originally)
Changed to Type =07 (NTFS) to access it (out of sheer curiosity)
Appears to have x86+x86 WIM in WINRE folder and SWM in FACTORY folder (for dual-recover "depending on")
It appears that the Recovery Key Sequence simply "boots" to the Recovery Partition (via BIOS and NOT the MBR in this case? unsure BUT MBR doesn't seem to have anything out-of-the-ordinary - looks like Vista&up MBR/PBR...). Possibly just changing the "Active Partition" flag would allow for the BOOTMGR (in your recovery partition) to "take over"?
I might suggest you change the Partition Type back before you proceed (in case Recover gets "silly"). BTW PTEDIT (partition table editor) can be obtained from Symantec "for free" (google "Starman" + "PTEDIT" and/or "PTEDIT32") as opposed to using Hixxn and just go for UBCD/BartBE/WinPE/LiveXP instead (now you're legal )
edit - Ummm, forgot to mention - BACKUPS FIRST (somehow) of your DATA. Recovery usually involves a "wipe" of the "normal" partition for recovery purposes.
