Yoga 13: unable to copy recovery partition to harddrive after hotfix

Hello everyone,

so it all started when i tried to download Windows 8.1 yesterday. For some reason Windows could not update some updates required BEFORE 8.1 would become available in the Windows Store. One solution to fix this problem is to refresh windows. So I'm trying this only to find out that I need a recovery drive. Hence, I create one. However, the checkbox "copy recovery partition to hard drive" was disabled. I went ahead an created a recovery drive without a copy of the partition. When I then tried to refresh Windows, it tells me that the recovery media does not work.


Long story short: I would like to copy my recovery partition to an external recovery drive. I applied the hotfix for the repartitioning of the harddrive when it came out. So now I am thinking that it might be an issue with the hotfix that windows is now unable to locate the recovery partition (which is still there). Maybe the issue is a different one.

In either case, help is much appreciated!!
