Microsoft / Surface rt2

Specs: Windows 8.1 RT, Intel i7 4500U
I am trying to create partitions on my Microsoft Surface RT2 using diskpart because it has no recovery partition to restore windows and I am trying to create recovery partition and put things back in so it can restore from it.

Every time I try this commands:

1. List Disk
2. Sel disk 0
3. Clean
4. Create partition primary

I get an error that says:

Virtual Disk Service Error: The object is not found.

Detail Disk show this.

This is starting to sound like the internal drive is dead and cannot keep a partition, unfortunately.

It's an internal drive in Microsoft Surface, I don't think of any way to access it on a PC and use a 3rd party software on it.

RT's ain't powered by x86. It's powered by an ARM chip, so software selection is . . . limited, to say the least.

That said, I recommend using MS' recovery image for Surface: https://www.microsoft.com/surface/e...

I tried using the recovery image, it says the required partition is missing.

If there was a factory pre-installed recovery partition on it, and it's now gone, there is no way you can re-create it.

I agree with Razor, the drive may have failed in which case it's pointless trying to do anything with it. The drive needs replacing.

I thought the same, diskPart sees the drive but says missing when I tried to create a partition.

Thanks for clearing out the problem.
