My sister-in-law took her PC into the Geek Squad (she lives in another state), and they screwed it up.  They f'd around and removed an excellant Antivirus program, and firewall and replaced the antivirus with a POS program.  Even the manufacturer of the substandard antivirus programs says it is only intended as a baseline, and recommends programs like AVAST, NORTON, etc.  The Geek Squad are, well to be nice, incompentant b**bs :angry:.  This isn't the first time I had to help my sister-in-law, remotely, to fix the Geek Squad's debacle.

So I suspect that the "recovery disk" they created was just another screwup.  When I went from Windows 8 (manufacturer's image), to 8.1 (boxed from M$), I had to delete all partitions, and then when I booted from the DVD, partitioned out my drive the way I wanted, then the OS installed.

I don't know if that will help you much, but I thought I'd put in my 2 cents.

GOOD LUCK!
