Steps to Create Factory Default Dedicated Recovery Partition in Windows

So it all started when I decided to upgrade my Windows 8 laptop to Windows 10. The installation failed and what I was left with was a laptop that had no OS, since Win 8 was removed and Win 10 wasn’t installed.

I decided to do a clean installation of Windows 10 now, but for that I had to delete and format my hard disk which means losing my factory default Windows recovery partition. Well, whatever be the case, using the below freeware you can also create your own dedicated Recovery Partition in Windows 7, 8 or 10 (both 32 and 64 bits).

The software is called as AOMEI OneKey Recovery. Although it is more of a paid software but it also comes in a free version with limited features but enough for us to create a recovery partition.

Since I had put lot of efforts in recording the video I knew re-recording was not possible. Hence I had to convert the avi video into GoPro compatible Cineform mp4 or avi formats.
