    Recovery to Factory Specs Issue – Windows will now not Boot


    by schmigal1 ·

    Hi All, My daughters ASUS K52F needed to be rebuilt to factoy specs. (I have done this before on an ACER and a GATEWAY without issues.)

    I started the restore and loaded each of the 4 disks when requested and it made it to 100% and I pressed on finish when requested and the computer restarted itself but then did not do anything but load the black screen with the ASUS logo.

    I must have missed a step but I do not know what that is.

    Has anyone else had this issue or know what I need to do now to get windows to boot/load?

    I can see on the hard drive the 3 partitions (Recovery, Main and an “X”). So I feel that the needed files are there.

    I think the problem is that the bios needs to be set back to boot from the hard drive, I have gone ito the BIOS on several computers as well as this one before but now for some reason I am not able to make it work to get into the BIOS to change the boot oder. I think that woild solve my issue if I could get in. I have pressed the F2 key many times when the bios xcreen dispalys, I have even tried the delete key like others have mentioned. Does anyone know what I need to do to get into the BIOS? BTW: when I did the recovery using the disks IN wa able to get in then and was able to set it to the DVD for the restore.

    Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give me.
