For some days I have been trying to put the Windows Recovery Environment wim file on a separate partition. Without much success, sadly. This is what I've done, it's MBR partitioned (old system): Created three partitions: system fat32, windows ntfs and the last one recovery 600MB ntfs type 27. Deployed the install.wim from Win PE, as a last step copied over the WinRE.wim to the last partition. After rebooting and installing apps and stuff, opened command prompt as admin and assigned a letter to the hidden recovery partition. Then I issued these commands: Code: Reagentc /disable xcopy /H C:\Windows\System32\Recovery\ReAgent.xml R:\Recovery\WindowsRE reagentc /setreimage /path R:\Recovery\WindowsRE reagentc /enable After the "setreimage" command it looked like the path was correctly set. But when doing "reagentc /info" the path had not changed at all, it was still using the C:\Recovery folder. Also, when doing "bcdedit /enum all" it effectively showed that the recovery was enabled but still using the Windows partition. Long story short, I can't relocate the WinRE.wim to a separate partition. Looks like Windows 10 does not allow a partition other than the Windows partition for the WinRE.wim. I know it works, because when installing from DVD and using the normal Windows setup, WinRE gets the separate partition. Goal is to make some sort of repair environment available in case the Windows partition gets corrupted. Any pointers on this would be most welcome. Cheers.
