I recieved my new Dell XPS8900 on Friday. It was preinstalled with win 7 pro and came with Win 7 pro operating system install DVD.
I immediately upgraded to Win 10.
My problem is I cannot create recovery media.
If I use Microsoft Windows Settings - Create A Recovery Drive I get error:
"We can't create a recovery drive on this PC. Some required files are missing. To troubleshoot problems when your PC can't start use your windows installation disc or media"
If I use the preinstalled Dell App "Recovery Media Creator" I get error:
"Recovery Media Error. The recovery environment is not enabled on this system.Recovery Media creation cannot proceed..."
How can I create recovery media for my PC?
Or is my PC setup designed to now allow creation of Recovery media?
The media creation tool is for Windows 7 and not for the Windows 10 upgrade. The upgrade comes from Microsoft and not Dell. You can click the link below for reading Windows 10 FAQ's
