Alienware Aurora R11

Alienware Aurora R11


Its been 2 week since i had this issue, i just reset the pc to factory settings via supportassist os recovery, but the problem still persist, here is the event viewer log:

it even makes my PC crash, i already tried;

- sfc scan


- preboot advanced hardware testing via supportassist os recovery

- reset windows to factory settings via supportassist os recovery

everything working great, i can run supportassist BUT downloading driver always error but the rest of the feature is working perfectly fine.

1. should i reinstall supportassist? 

2. if i uninstall supportassist will i still be able to access supportassist os recovery on preboot?

3. where i can find the alienware one?, the only available is the dell supportassist not the alienware one.

any answers would be appreciated, thanks!

I had a similar problem Alienware OS recovery Tool caused my system to completely crash during recovery. The recovery got stuck and that's when I understood that it was wrong. The solution was to visit the Microsoft site, where I created a USB boot key. I installed a clean Win10 and then slowly downloaded all the necessary programs from Dell. I haven't had any problems since then! I will never use Alienware OS recovery Tool again !!!
