I can confirm what was discussed in I wanted to respond there, as it is literally my exact same issue, but the site here seems to be unnecessarily forcing me to post a new thread here. This prevents me from alerting anyone else who may have already6 been following that other post and therefore deprives me of that access to their experience and recollection. Also, the "Pick a Category" options are s---, because this is neither a "General Hardware" question nor is it a problem with Windows 7, this is a problem with the Asus-factory-settings hidden recovery partition on the hard drive.

I have performed recovery from EMS partition before on my Asus EeePC 1015PX, and hitting F9 is what would bring me to the prompt that would begin that process. That prompt would ONLY include the "Windows Setup [EMS Enabled]" option, or cancelling out to reboot to Windows as normal. Instead, that single-only option that should be there is *missing,* and in its place, there is a single standalone option to Boot to Windows 7 as normal from that prompt without a reboot which would otherwise have been normally required, and an F8-optional submenu with WinRE options that are built into the installed-copy of Windows on the hard drive and do not derive from a recovery partition.

✔ Best Answer
Taken directly from the ASUS manual page A-13.

"Using the Recovery Partition:

1.Press [F9] during bootup.
2.Press [Enter] to select Windows Setup [EMS Enabled].
3.Select the language you want to recover and click Next.
4.Read the ASUS Preload Wizard messages and click Next.
5.Select a partition option and click Next.

Partition options:
Recover Windows to first partition only.
This option deletes only the first partition and allows you to keep other
partitions, and to create a new system partition as drive "C".

Recover Windows to entire HD.
This option deletes all partitions from your hard disk drive and creates
a new system partition as drive "C"."

If the proper F9 menu options aren't available, it's possible the Recovery Partition was somehow deleted. Did you confirm that the partition exists?

Re your gripe. I am not the webmaster but posts get locked (after a very long time) because interest wanes. That one was raised on December 31, 2014. There were responses next day and nobody has input on it since. A Google search is more likely to find this post as it is newer.
