Windows 8.1 PBR Image installation

    General discussion

  • Hello.

    I bought a Dell laptop about 6 months ago and I really messed up with the recovery partition(PBR Image). Just to free up some space I deleted the PBR Image Partition as it was almost taking 10GB. But after a week when I decided to reset the PC to factory defaults, an error message pop up, saying "Could not find the recovery environment" and I was stuck!

    After some searches on google I end up recovering the 'recovery partition (PBR Image)' all the files are there but I still can't reset my PC due to same error message. I want help on how to manually install .swm files as there are three .swm files named, install.swn , install2.swm , install3.swm. So basically I need to install these images to reset the PC. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks..
