If you use the Advanced Start-up option in Update and Recovery you will still have the ability to restore from the system image. Shame the ability to create a System Image has been removed. :(

 

If anyone finds away to bring it back completely, please tell me!

I don't know how to bring back what you're used to... I'm frustrated by this removal as well.  However, you can still make a system image by doing the following:

 

1. Press Windows(logo) + X

2.Go to Windows PowerShell (Admin)

4.Then type recimg -CreateImage <location>

(e.g. recimg -CreateImage D:\RefreshImage)

5.Wait for the  ISO Image of Windows 8.1 to create until finished

6.After that Restart your computer

Typing 'recimg' brings up the help context where it specifies using / instead of -. Dunno if that makes any difference but this is a great tip and worked flawlessly on my pc. I guess making sure the correct ownership and permissions on the target location are set too.

Apparently you have to wait 10 minutes before the progress actually shows. I guess I sometimes need to be more patience. :laugh:

Seriously, well I can't complain as after 10 minutes the percent went up at a decent speed.

 

(Damn I need a SSD, if that is how fast it can do stuff like file transfers & system images.)

I think you can also do this in the command prompt using the following command:

 

recimg /createimage C:\Custom_Image_Refresh

 

Furthermore you can also configure this image to be used as a Refresh point using the following command:

 

recimg /setcurrent C:\Custom_Image_Refresh

 

I hope this helps.

Thanks,
