    Windows recovery tool did not work


    I downloaded the recovery tool and tried a system image recovery but it could not find the recovery partition.


    what next? Is choosing install windows 10 my only option?


    i am assuming that all of my personal files and settings would be lost if i performed a windows 10 install. Am i correct?


    thank you, John

    :)

    Hi, lumia 925 user.

    Thanks for posting on Microsoft Community.

    We'd suggest you use the Windows Recovery Tool. Please see the following steps below.

    When the installation has finished, start the application and the main screen will appear:

    • The procedure to restore your phone using Windows Device Recovery Tool is as follows:
    • Connect the phone to your PC (using the USB cable that came with the phone).
    • After a few seconds the PC should find the phone and you'll see the Phone Selection screen. Click your phone in this screen to select it.
    • The latest available firmware version for your device will be shown. Click the 'Install software'/'Reinstall software' button to flash your phone
    Windows Device Recovery Tool will then download and install the latest firmware + OS available for your phone.

    Note: Your phone will be reset to factory status when using this tool.
