Tried to run Alienware respawn but had to do the DCL checker. It kicked back saying it could not run respawn due to the fact that Window Recovery Envioronemnt Was not present.
If i might so kindly ask, how do i get this enabled so i can back up to OEM factory settings.
Alienware Respawn is a part of the Windows Recovery Environment in other words Recovery Partition. If the Windows Recovery Environment is not present in the computer or somehow lost, Alienware Respawn would not work. The only way to re-install windows is performing a clean re-installation of the Operating System from the media (Recovery Disks). Please refer the article on How to Install Windows7 in an Alienware Computer for detailed instructions on re-installing the operating system. **Note: Please ensure to back up all the data from your computer before performing the PC Restore as it would erase everything from your computer.After re-installing windows, please ensure to install the drivers in the correct order. It is very important for the computer to function properly. Please try the steps and reply with results; I’d be glad to assist you further.
