i have a simlar problem.
I installed Windows 7, now the option to return to " Fractory Setting" is missing. the 😧 is there, i can navigate to the directory and see PCrestore. however when i try to start it, windows gets an error, and the program stops. could it be possible that if i boot from A vista home premium boot disc, i may have access to the program again?
I have no real wish to move back, windosw 7 is a vast improvement over Vista home premium, but it would be nice to "step back" again.
