Hi Chandan,

I see that you have problems with recovery option in Windows 8. I will help you with this issue.

1.      What is the make and model of the computer?

2.      Which security software is installed on the computer?

3.      Did you make any changes to the computer recently?

In Windows 8 use File History :

Repair & recovery

What if there isn't am option to run the repair utility because you aren't able to boot the drive and the recovery disk wont allow you to run the refresh because you have to load HDD drivers (PCIE SSD) before you can do anything with the windows install disk?

Basically, the only option I have when using the install disk is to go to custom install and "Load Drivers" and then do a custom install.  My Win8 drive doesn't show up until I click load drivers.  All I want to do is use the Recover - refresh option.  

Thanks.

(From what I have gathered is this is a shortcoming in the windows 8 repair tool, it looks like someone forgot to add the ability to load HDD drivers prior to running the recovery tools, this is a very poor oversight)
