  1. Windows Could Not Find The Recovery Environment


    Hello,

    This is my first post on here so I'm sorry if its bad.


    Anyways, I had an Acer Aspire E1-571 and have had to reset it a couple times due to malware and other things. I have tried to reset my PC this time as I am convinced that I have malware. But when I go to reset my device, it says that "Could not find the recovery environment" I have reset this PC before, as stated above, and have never had this issue before. I don't know what the issue is, as the PC is a laptop, so shouldn't it have the recovery environment already with it? Its never been an issue before. I don't have an install disc anywhere in my house. So I believe there is a file missing or something? Please could someone help me fix this issue?


    Thanks.

    :)

    Unable to access Windows Recovery Environment normally

    Some entries in the bcd for the recovery environment is either corrupted or missing. To fix the problem, you;d need to rebuild the entries for the recovery environment.
    Here's the steps:
    1. Turn on folder options to show hidden files/folders. Open admin command then type: reagentc /disable
      - This will move 2 files from the recovery partition reagent.xml and winre.wim to C:\windows\system32\recovery
    2. If you have the Windows 10 ISO, double click on it to mount to a virtual cd/dvd else If you have the Windows 10 USB then navigate to Sources folder and look for install.esd or install.wim.
    3. Use 7-ZIP to open install.esd or install.wim, select and index. eg. 6 then navigate to Windows\system32\recovery. You'd see 2 files: Winre.wim and reagent.xml.
    4. Remove everything from C:\windows\system32\recovery (ie. your current winre.win and reagent.xml)
    5. Copy the new winre.wim and reagent.xml from the install.esd/install.wim to C:\windows\system32\Recovery
    6. From admin command, type: ReAgentc /enable
    Reboot to recovery. This will also fix the problem with shutdown /r /o
