    Exclamation disk wiped clean - won't allow me to recover

    Hi, I installed Windows 8.1 Preview on my ARM tablet. before installing it I created a recovery USB drive as I thought I would hate Windows 8.1 and want to go back to 8.0.

    So I did but before recovering I had the stupidest idea to wipe clean the disk.

    there were 3 partitions in it before:
    recovery (around 300mb)
    EFI (I don't remember its size)
    C: (around 54, 55GB).

    I can still get access to the blue screen with the big buttons. in Troubleshoot, "Reset your PC" won't work. it gives me a message saying "Unable to reset your PC. A required drive partition is missing"

    I still have access to command line and could recreate the partitions but I don't know what would be the correct sizes and file systems for EFI and Recovery. and even if I did I have a feeling that just creating the partitions might not make much difference.

    Any ideas, please?

    I think you're going to have to send it in to get everything reinstalled. Please contact customer support, as I don't think it's possible to restore anything after the partition is gone.

    thanks but the solution to my problem was a bit too complicated for an average joe but with the help from the folks at XDA I managed.
    I really didnt want to send the tablet away for a two week repair trip in Czech Republic.

    the solution: disk wiped clean - won't allow me to recover - xda-developers
