I can't recover my Chromebook 15 910

Q: I can't recover my Chromebook 15 910

I've tried using two different flash drives, a 16 gb by Kingston, and a 16 gb by Sandisk. Every time I try to recover OS, it says "an unexpected error has occured." This is right after it goes through verifying the integrity of my recovery media. The recovery reason states "0x5b No bootable kernel found on disk"

Preferred Solution: I can't recover my Chromebook 15 910

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi all, a while ago I had the idea to start from scratch to clean up the system and gain more performance. But I have not done yet because I have some doubts.


On the PC I have Acronis True Image Home 2011
--> In the part where it says My backups I see the image that I have saved.
--> When I click on "Explore and recover" :To the right I see 2 items to recover: "Reserved for System and Local Disk (C)"
Therefore, the partition (D)will remain intact. Right ? But if I want to restore everything, both partitions, i have to use the option "Files and folders" ?

Extra info : I did not create the image, other person is who created it :P

A:Difference between recover partitions or recover files and folders.

How long ago was that Acronis image made?

I guess I don't understand your intent. You talk about starting over to clean up and gain more performance, but then express interest in restoring "everything".

Was that image made at a time when your system was running perfectly? How has your system changed since that date? If you restore, you will have to reinstall any applications you've acquired since the image was made. And that image won't contain any personal data acquired since it was made. Maybe it contains no personal data at all?
If you are going to "start from scratch", I assume you mean you want to do a clean install of Windows.

If you were to do that, the only thing in that image file that might possibly be important to you would be personal files---pictures, videos, mp3s, Word documents, browser bookmarks, possibly email, etc. And that would be personal files as of the date of that image, not your current personal files. And not Windows itself.

If I wanted to "start over", I would:

1: back up all current personal files to some other drive, probably external. I would NOT use an image for this. I'd just copy them with the mouse.

2: reinstall Windows.

If I did those 2 things, the contents of the Acronis image would be irrelevant.

You should forget about Acronis if you don't understand it or know whats in any images you have. Particularly if you didn't make the image yourself. Images can fail you anyway. I'd never rely on them exclusi... Read more

I was installing a fresh copy of Windows, when I wasnt paying attention and accidentally deleted the wrong partition(which was my full 80g hard drive that has everything on it!!). Luckily, I noticed what I had done BEFORE I formatted it. So now the partition is an unpartitioned 80g, and I installed a fresh copy of xp on the RIGHT hard drive i meant to install it on in the first place! Can anyone help me? That hard drive is very important to me, and I know there has to be a way to get it back. For right now I am leaving the unpartitioned drive alone until I get some feedback. So if anyone can help, suggest a EASY to use program, or give any support, IT WOULD BE VERY MUCH APPRECIATED! Thankyou very much!

My hard drive is failing on my HP envy m6 and I need to install my windows 8.1 OS over to a new drive. The computer will not boot completely and I have bad sectors affecting the c: drive. Windows tries to fix them but it ran for over 24 hours and never finished. I have been able to copy over the recovery partition to a new drive, but an OS transfer using partition software does not work. Is there any way I can recover the OS to the new drive using just the recovery partition? Any way to start this from a USB drive or other methods? Thanks, RGecy

Hi there.

I'm doing this thread to once & for all find the ultimate answers to my PC issues. Before i bought my Lenovo Yoga 8 laptop i was thinking of buying a Google Chromebook. Specs might not be as high-end as a Windows PC but it loads a lot faster (having no such apps or enough background process to load in the background), apps load a lot faster, updates come automatically (and no need to download/intall like a PC), straighforward OS and no complicated hundreds of settings to tinker with unlike a PC. And besides a Chromebook is virus and malware-free forever.

I also happen to come from a Macbook Air and i found my PC is that slow. Downloading & installing apps takes a lot longer, opening or closing an app or browser or tasks also takes longer. But in the course i have made some research to improve the speed & performance of my Windows 8.1 laptop mainly:

1. Turned off bluetooth
2. Set Windows Update to automatic
3. Updated Windows Defender
4. Defrafgging my hard drive monthly

5. Choose Selective Startup (under msconfig) and made sure no apps are enabled under Startup, selected apps are running under Services, choose a higher number under Processors and maximum memory set to at least half of what my Lenovo is capable of (under Boot)
6. Set performance to High Performance.

So, What else have i missed?

A few weeks ago, my Chromebook began spontaneously powering down. I originally thought this was due to low battery, but after a few days I couldn't log on at all, even when battery was fully charged, or machine was plugged into the AC. Would get the password prompt and be able to enter the password okay, but then the machine would lock. Cursor still worked, but nothing responded, not even the onscreen "Shut Off" button. Only way to turn off the machine was to close lid or use the keyboard power button. Is there any way to fix this, or is this machine now dead? Thank you!

When powered on, my chrome book has no display, And all I see is the blue power indicator light blinking repeatedly with no pattern (about two times per second) if I hit ESC plus refresh plus power I get the " Chrome OS is missing or damaged" message. I have done the recovery process twice and although it says that it has recovered successfully, however, when it tries to restart, it goes right back to having no display and the blue power indicator light blinking. If I have the charger connected the orange charging indicator light blinks at the same rate. This all started approximately 24 hours ago, it was working fine before then.

My Chromebook refuses to boot up. When plugged to the charger, the power light comes on and the fan spins, but nothing shows up on screen. I can not force it to turn off, and nothing appears when I hook it up to a monitor via the HDMI port. I have tried draining the battery to see if it was stuck on some sort of sleep mode, but when plugged back in, the problem persists. Holding down the power button does nothing. When contacting Google, to see if it was a ChromeOS issue, I was informed that it was a hardware issue and that the manufacturer would have to fix it. It is no longer under warranty, so I was hoping to be able to find out more information here on what part would need to be serviced and/or replaced. Thanks in advance for any help that may point me in the right direction.

A photo colleague dumped his Chromebook on my lap (gratis) with some [email protected]#$ comments ... I will not comment as to why, and I thought this could replace my clunky W540 for pre made portfolio/slide or video presentations. OK, here is the deal.  The Cloud storage is nice, but I'm off on the road with no WiFi, at a client's house. Last time I tested the Chrome Cloud, the presentation 'stuttered' and the flow was disconcerting, and was a discredit to my abilities. I have mutliple prsentations, and 16gb is not enough, particularly when visiting distinct client with different or multiple  portfolio requirements. Is there any way to change the 16gb standard card to a 64gb (There are now 200gb micro SD cards!): Sandisk 200GB SD - The future. I hate to fiddle with the built in SD port, not counting the potential loss of these tiny cards.  I would like it to be an  internal or at least sealed and protected from accidental 'pop-outs'. As the eMMC is actually built on the SD card protocol, can I open and replace the meager 16gb with a more modern larger storage for of WiFi use. Any hack or hints before I pass this unit off, would be appreciated.  Incredible 'oyster' closure system.  Even the Chrome Pixel has a lid finger catch groove.
