I'm stuck in a pretty bad situation right now and I have no idea about how to help myself..
So recently I've been wanting to 'reset' my Windows 8.1 laptop, & I just cannot because my recovery environment is missing..
First when I got this problem I thought there would be an easy-intermediate level fix like every other problem. (and I love fixing stuff.)
But this one doesn't look like an easy fix or I'm not even sure If there is a fix. So the big mistake I did was, I deleted my "System Recovery Partition".
I have searched everywhere possible and I'm not getting a fix.. I would really appreciate IF YOU GUYS HELP ME!
and another problem is that I don't live in the USA or Canada.
I've got a Dell Inspiron 15R 5521, 8GB RAM, intel i5 3317u.
and Dell provides Backup Media to only the people who live in the US and Canada. Please guys, I need a solution.
I have a separate Windows 8.1 Installation Disk, but what I'm scared about is If I install my Windows from the disk, my Dell features would be gone and I don't think I'd be able to have a proper Recovery Environment in the future because this Disk's installation files are nothing related to Dell. Its just a clean Windows installation disk I got from my friend a while ago. I've tried the repair my computer option from the disk and it does not help...
Can you help me too? please, I have a similar problem, I had to reinstall Windows 10 with a restore image because I accidentally deleted the recovery partition.
