Okay John....I cannot get into the WinRE...I've tried 4 different "Recovery Disks," including the one that ASUS for me to make and was created on the day that I got the computer....AND...since, it "forced" me to create these 4 disks, I really thought they would work, but they haven't!!!  As I mentioned before, I CAN still get into Parted Magic (with GParted), and MiniXP from the Hiren's Boot CD. 


I REALLY think this has something to do with some sort of settings that are set by the POST.  Is there a way to debug the start-up process and change it from a "User Determined Setup Process" back to the "Normal" boot process...even though there's no OS currently installed?  I'm trying to get into the WinRe in order to retrieve a back up onto the new Seagate 1TB SSHD that I have now re-installed into the ASUS Laptop (and I was able to partition it in Parted Magic.)


I'm at a complete loss as to how to try to restore the "Windows Backup" (774 Zip Files and a Cab File), or the "System Image VHD File" that I have stored on my WD Passport External Drive if I cannot get any of the WinRe Disks to boot up any more? 


Please Help!!!!
