    Default wimlib-imagex - extract windows image

    Hello

    I formated my /boot partition in a UEFI system with my openSUSE installation (13.1 using KDE (gnome also installed)). Other partitions are fine, like "Restore", "DATA", "primary" and "Recovery" -windows partitions. Is there someone out here that know how to extract .wim files in a restore partition to a USB stick, or preferable edit/configure/setup grub in UEFI system to boot into "windows 8" again? Manufacture of laptop are not helpful, only saying I have to by a new windows copy Hope you have better information, I know you are more helpful!
    I've installed wimlib-imagex but can't figure out how to use it.
    Command as ("user" = root) :
    Code:
    linux-qlrc:~ # wimlib-imagex extract /var/run/media/quinness/Restore/RecoveryImage/install.wim /dev/sdb
    ERROR: "/dev/sdb" is not a valid image in "/var/run/media/quinness/Restore/RecoveryImage/install.wim"!
           Please specify a 1-based image index or image name.
           You may use `wimlib-imagex info' to list the images contained in a WIM.
    Image looking like:
    Code:
    linux-qlrc:~ # wimlib-imagex info /var/run/media/quinness/Restore/RecoveryImage/install.wim

    Hi
    Can we check a few things first? Can you post the output from the following commands;
    Code:
    lsblk
    
    gdisk -l /dev/sda
    
    efibootmgr -v
    Hopefully the /boot/EFI partition is still present, which contains the efi files. Not sure if you can browse the wim file with an archive manager?

    Yeah, I have an option with Windows at boot, but that only tell me that anything is wrong. Sorry for not telling you that in previous post.

    Hi
    So as a quick test, run the following command and the reboot. Dod you
    pop into windows?
    Code:
    efibootmgr -n 0001
    shutdown -r now
    Is there an option in the ASUS BIOS to browse the efi files and
    selectively boot?

    When rebooted after
    Code:

    I got this message

    In my BIOS it looks like this

    Hi
    When it's booting as in at the BIOS part, keep pressing the F8 key,
    does this give you the option in the windows boot menu to 'Repair the
    computer'? If so try that.

    At the windows error screen there is a short flash and the blue screen comes back. In BIOS F8 don't do anything. In openSUSE boot menu F8 don't do anything.
    I say "in BIOS", is it correctly, or is it change to UEFI when we communicate?

    Hi
    It's the bit between BIOS and boot. Press the F8 key to get that
    windows boot menu screen. Since you can select the boot via BIOS, use
    that to booting into the windows boot manager.

    Else, I think your going to have to contact the ASUS folks and get a
    restore dvd from them...

    Thank you for putting time into this. I was in contact with the ASUS support in sweden, but they put less time in this than you, and only said that I have to buy a new copy of Windos... Nahhh, don't think so.
    Again, thank you.
