    I went to do a full reinstall of windows using the built in recovery options in charms but it cant seem to find the recovery environment. I had some trouble with my surface and did a restore last time and it worked fine, but this time things are not going so well. I got into the CMD and used DISKPART to take a look at the partitions on DISK 0. I still have all of my partitions.

    Partition 1 Recovery 600MB
    Partition 2 System 200MB
    Partition 3 Reserved 128 MB
    Partition 4 Primary 109GB
    Partition 5 Recovery 8000MB

    What i think has happen is the recovery partition number changed. I sure the data is still in the recovery partition, I just dont know how to fix this. Anyone got some ideas?

    After some more poking around, i read the recovery partition needs to have a drive letter?
    so i did DISKPART to list the VOLUME on Disk 0

    Volume 0 C Windows
    Volume 1 Windows RE
    Volume 2 System
    volume 3 Recovery image

    The only Volume that has a letter is 0 which is C. The main windows installation.
