special in system win 8 boot with uefi, when computer boot can't see option Repair Your Computer
have any one meet same problems like me?
Since we are unable to restore using the Dell Backup and Recovery software as well as the Recovery disks that you have created, the only option we have is to use the Windows 8 DVD to reinstall the operating system.
May I know if you have the Windows 8 DVD that was shipped with the computer?
no. i have only dvd driver and utilities shipped with my laptop
i just install a new windows 8, option format partition old windows, no touch other partition ( efi partition, recovery partition, ...)
after install new windows 8, i try recovery, but meet again same error
i think my recovery partition not error, maybe error happen from setting bios or utilities in boot partition, winre partition
i try some diffirent setting bios but nothing better, i try fix boot bcd rebuild in efi partition but it not work, so i don' know i really touched these partition or didn't
the problems haven't been solved, i so tired with this
@Kalyan: do you have more sugget for me?
and anyone really recovery success on this model ? if you have, please tell me step by step how to get it, i will be grateful for you
May I know how did you reinstall Windows 8? If it was with a disk, though the recovery partition has not been deleted, we will not be able to use Dell Backup & Recovery Manager to recover the computer anymore
i reinstall win 8 by usb, i use a boot usb has image win 8 pro download from microsoft, i boot usb efi, install win 8, i format only partition C (partition contains old windows) and install on it
if in case you said, can you show me exactly step by step how recovery my this model laptop ?
because i going to borrow a media recovery disk of diffirent L521x laptop on next week
i afraid of my recovery partition have problem although i didn't touch it
if that disk also not work, it mean my recovery partition is good, the problem come from bios setting
so please show me exactly step by step how recovery my this model laptop by media disk, can't you?
