In the process of responding to comments, I noticed a lot of you wondered if you could not reset Windows 10 or could not use the boot repair tools, fix the basic errors that Microsoft has provided.

I often have the answer that is: Because you use the edited Windows installer, or use the multi-configurable ghost version, some components have been removed to reduce the capacity for the Ghost version.

Yes, and in this tutorial I will introduce you techniques to create a Recovery partition (WinRE) with a capacity of about 500 MB to be able to fix Windows boot errors and also be able to fix the error of not using the computer. function Reset Windows to its new state.

#first. What is Windows RE?

Windows RE’s full name is Windows Recovery Environment, this is a recovery environment that helps to fix common errors of the Windows operating system.

By default, WinRE is already built into Windows 10, and supports versions such as Windows 10 Home, Pro, Enterprise, Edu and Windows Server 2016.

#2. When did Windows RE appear?

WinRE will appear when the computer loses power suddenly, due to improper shutdown (press and hold the power button) or maybe after 2-3 times of boot failure.

# 3. Does your computer have a Recovery partition?

Well, first we will need to do check if your computer has a Recovery partition? If so, then okay, you will not need to create anymore, but in case not, we will have to create a new one.


You go to the following path:

C: Windows System32 Recovery

Also in case you do not have the file winre.wim in the Recovery folder, continue to the step below.

Well, we will create it by:

+ Step 1: Download the original Windows 10 installer. (Please download the Windows 10 installer similar to the version of Windows 10 that you are using.)

+ Step 2: Create 2 new folders on the drive partition C (the operating system drive), in turn:

+ Step 3: Install Windows 10 to virtual drive => then copy all the folders in the virtual drive and the windows1o folder that you just created in bước 2.

The files / folders are included in the Windows 10 installer

+ Step 4: Next, open CMD as administrator (see instructions if you do not know). Enter the following commands and press Enter:

dism / mount-wim /wimfile:c:windows10sourcesinstall.wim / index: 1 / mountdir: c: mount

If successful, a message will appear “The operation completed successfully.”

+ Step 7: You can turn off the CMD window already.

+ Step 8: Now we will create a new sized partition 450 MB. There are many ways to divide the hard drive that I showed you earlier.

You can use Partition Winzard software to divide the drive or use the software-free partitioning method below.


You can open it Disk Managerment out by right-clicking ThisPC => select Manager => select Disk Management)

Or open the Run dialog box (Windows + R) => then use the command diskmgmt.msc => press Enter.
