Yeah, that's sort of a hail-mary solution, doing an in-place upgrade or disk image restoration. I was hoping, though, for some other solution not involving an in-place upgrade or disk image restoration.
Your system obviously have some more problems and In Place Upgrade is totally safe and fast if you choose to keep personal files and programs. It just replaces system files with rand new "virgin" ones.

Where is winre.wim now?
Following aubergine's steps, I copied the file to C:\Windows\System32\Recovery folder. It is no longer there after running reagentc /enable. I assume that it was moved to the recovery partition. Diskpart's list vol lists the volume 4 partition as RAW instead of NTFS. I can't get inside it.

I follow these instructions and similar ones on a youtube video, and the RE location still ends up on the main partition (2) instead of my recovery partition (4).
Any ideas even with the correct ID set and gpt attributes set, when i run reagentc /info, it still is on the wrong partition?
I've tried deleting the ReAgent.xml file before enabling, as to force it to write a new one, but still wont go to the right partition.

I started this thread. Believe me, I tried every solution mentioned here to fix my recovery partition. Nothing suggested here "stuck" other than one -- deleting the recovery partition, re-formatting the unallocated partition as NTFS, settings its id and gpt attributes with diskpart and then performing an in-place upgrade with the same Win version.

Well according to this > Windows RE location: \\?\GLOBALROOT\device\harddisk0\partition4\Recovery\WindowsRE
IT is on Partition 4

Some Partitions are Hidden - so may appear to be on another partition

Reagentc /info > is the correct way to determine WinRE Location

BTW, after following this procedure, diskpart correctly lists the recovery partition as NTFS and reagentc /info reports Enabled, but upon reboot reagentc /info reports Disabled and diskpart reports the recovery partition as RAW. This is consistent no matter how many times I repeat this procedure. I have no idea why the partition changes to RAW after a reboot.

I follow these instructions and similar ones on a youtube video, and the RE location still ends up on the main partition (2) instead of my recovery partition (4).

This happens if the Recovery partition is too small (see screenshot below).

Recovery partition 512 MB.jpg

How to delete and recreate the Recovery partition

1.

- Open Windows PowerShell as administrator.

diskpart
list disk
select disk #
list partition
select partition # (replace # with the Recovery partition number)
delete partition override
list volume
exit

2.

- Open Disk Management.
- Extend the Windows partition to fill the freed space.

3.

- Open Windows PowerShell as administrator.

diskpart
list disk
select disk #
list partition
select partition # (replace # with the Windows partition number)
shrink desired=1024
create partition primary size=1024

format quick fs=ntfs
set id=DE94BBA4-06D1-4D40-A16A-BFD50179D6AC
gpt attributes=0x8000000000000001
list partition
exit

4.

- Extract ReAgent.xml and Winre.wim from your installation media using 7-Zip.
- You will find them in any of the images in the Windows\System32\Recovery folder.
- Copy them into your C:\Windows\System32\Recovery folder (overwrite the existing files).

5.

reagentc /enable
- This will move WinRe.wim to the Recovery partition and set the GUID and location in ReAgent.xml.

reagentc /info

Why bother - if winre.wim is in folder c:\recovery and enabled (partition 3), moving it to a separate winre partition 4 makes no functional difference to Winre actions. In fact, the partition can get in the way if you have spare unallocated space after the winre partition.

Recovery tools partition​


The recovery tools should be in a separate partition than the Windows partition to support automatic failover and to support booting partitions encrypted with Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption.

We recommend that you place this partition immediately after the Windows partition. This allows Windows to modify and recreate the partition later if future updates require a larger recovery image.

Partition layout​

The default partition layout for UEFI-based PCs is: a system partition, an MSR, a Windows partition, and a recovery tools partition.

diagram of default partition layout: system, msr, windows, and recovery


This layout lets you use Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption through both Windows and through the Windows Recovery Environment.

When I follow your procedure, reagentc /info (last step) reports that Windows RE status is enabled and diskpart lists the fs of the recovery partition as NTFS.

After a reboot though, diskpart lists the recovery partition as RAW and reagentc /info reports that Windows RE status is Disabled.

Trying reagentc /enable reports that the Windows RE image cannot be found, of course, since the recovery partition is seen as RAW.

Strangely, all my disk partitioning utilities report the same recovery partition as an NTFS fs.

I doubt if this is a problem with my SSD or drivers. I have tried the same procedure on two other computers of mine running the same Windows 11 Pro 22621.382 builds and both of the recovery partitions of each following reboot are reported by diskpart as RAW when, before the reboot after successfully completing your procedure, diskpart correctly lists the recovery partition fs as NTFS and reagentc /info reports enabled.

Perhaps this is a bug in this build of Win 11. I don't recall this problem occurring with Win 10.
