Re-enable the Factory Restore option in RnR pre-boot Environ

#1 Post by arlab » Sun May 04, 2008 8:04 am

How to re-enable the "Factory Restore" option in the "Rescue and Recovery" Pre-Boot environment!!

Finally, a solution to this (thanks to starholmre).

Sometimes (or always?), after a factory restore, via the "Rescue and Recovery", that option just vanishes from the pre-boot environment.

To re-enable that option, simply uninstall the "Rescue and Recovery" (RnR) software (the software that you have installed in Windows, not the pre-boot environment).

To unistall it, simply run the Setup Launcher. I believe its location will vary with the version of RnR you have installed, but for version 4.20.0512.00 (English), this is the path: C:\SWTOOLS\apps\rnr42en\tvtrnr42_1512.EXE.

After uninstalling the RnR software, the "Factory Restore" option should return. And you can (and should) re-install the RnR software (the re-installation won't remove the "Factory Restore" option).
