    That's a negative ghost rider pattern is full. If the recovery partition is corrupt or lost installing respawn will not work. You have to make a respawn dvd or usb before hand. The software on dells site is used just to access the partition.

    Wrong. You CAN perform a totally clean/fresh installation of the OS onto a brand new/empty drive, update all relevant system drivers and re-install any bundled software and THEN download and run AlienRespawn and a new recovery partition will be created on said hard drive. You can then use the UI of AWR to create recovery disks or a USB to return your machine to that particular state.

    How do I know this? - mainly because I have done it several times myself, along with many other users on this forum. :)

    Well to the person who is needing this advice or wanting this advice. You can try Steviejones113 method and let us know. When you need the Respawn USB if your recovery partition damaged or missing let me know and i will make a copy and mail it to you.

    I will be the first to say I stand corrected. I don't know when sell revamped the software. The old software never rebuilt a recovery partition. But this new software does! AWESOME!

    Told ya!! ;) - glad it worked for you. It did use to be the case that AWR would not create a new partition, however, the newer version does.

    Hello Steviejones133,, you made a great video about disassembly of the alienware 14..therefore I have certainty your knowledge of OS is also strong.. recently after an Microsoft update I'm having sys config troubles--my Intel Core i7 4700MQ only shows up as a single core cpu with 1 thread not 4 each!!!! also my system will shut down instead of sleeping, or hibernating.. how do I fix this??? or what is causing this?.
