When you purchase an MSI laptop, you have the option of creating recovery DVDs with MSI Burn Recovery.
In this tutorial, you will see how to restore your MSI laptop (in our case : MSI GE60 2OE-080FR) from these recovery DVDs.
To restore your MSI laptop, insert the 1st Recovery DVD (recovery_dvd.iso).
If you look on this DVD, you will find programs such as :
In the "RECOVERY_DVD" folder of this 1st DVD, you will find the image of Windows 8 (OSIMG.SWM) for this laptop PC.
Finally, in the "SOURCES" folder of the recovery DVD, you will find a "BOOT.WIM" file.
This will allow you to understand that this DVD is bootable thanks to Windows PE (if you know what it is).
To restore your laptop using these recovery DVDs, you will need to boot your laptop on the first recovery DVD.
To do this, when your laptop starts up (before Windows starts), press the "Del" key on the keyboard several times to enter its BIOS.
In this "Aptio Setup Utility - ... American Megatrends, Inc" BIOS, go to the "Boot" tab.
Now that your laptop is configured to boot in UEFI mode, select the "Boot Option #1" line using the arrow keys on your keyboard and press Enter to change its value.
Select "CD/DVD" which corresponds to the CD/DVD drive built into your laptop PC.
Then, go to the "Save & Exit" tab, select the "Save Changes and Reset" option and press Enter.
Select "Yes" and press Enter again to confirm.
Your laptop restarts and the MSI logo appears.
Then, a "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD" message will appear.
The MSI logo will appear with a loading icon as below.
Then, the MSI recovery system will appear.
As you can see, you have 2 options to choose from :
In our case, we had created the recovery DVDs, then we had formatted the internal hard drive of our laptop PC to install Windows 7 on it from the Windows 7 installation DVD.
Do, this option no longer works in our case.
Let's try to use this "System Partition Recovery" option.
Confirm the message telling you that all files and settings will be reset.
Then, confirm this operation again.
The window disappears for a few seconds.
Then, this error will appear :
dvdRecovery1 1. Please make sure the disk partition's layout is factory default settings. 2. Please make sure current OS HDD is in the master HDD place.
Click OK and the MSI laptop will restart without doing anything else.
