How to recovery Intel Compute Stick dead after upgrade failure

I spend the last night to recovery my intel compute stick after upgrade to win 10

the upgrade to win 10 work fine but after finish all is gone,the ICS booting ok but after that is lock down in the configuration task

As we know Intel no offers the image to restore and back to life the stick

I found the solution and i hope the admin no delete this tread

What you need?

1 hub usb with minimun 2 ports

1 usb flash drive minim 8 GB with Fat32

1 keyboard with usb cable

please download the image recovery

after download it*s finish unzip *Ics_win8.1_recovery.zip* file to the root of an usb flash drive

put the flash drive and keyboard in the usb hub and power up the ICS and press F10

in the boot menu select the EFI USB DEVICE{YOUR NAME USB FLASH} and hit enter

confirm with Y when ask {2 or 3 times}

please wait {depending the speed in your usb hub and flash drive} between 15 minutes and an hour and a half

If everything went ok your Ics is back to life with windows 8 stock and with hidden partition recovery as factory

Thanks and sorry for my bad english

Thank You so much. I have successfully recovered my Compute stick with your image and instructions. This is awesome. I wonder why Intel don't offer this advice as the top search result?

I used the Intel WIndows 10 upgrade instructions and now have a WIndows 10 compute stick. It works great too! 1080p Youtube video at 1920x1080 resolution with no stutter. I'm stoked.

I can't see my USB flash drive when I press F10. Please help, my ICS can't boot anymore. It says it needs to be repaired.

Hello all,

msrobota, thank you for sharing this information.

Suraboi, have you tried following this method http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/stck1a32wfc/sb/CS-035619.htm Intel® Compute Stick STCK1A32WFC — Windows* Logon Screen Appears the First Time Intel® Compute Stick Starts in order to repair it? Make sure that the USB is bootable so it can be properly recognized by the Intel® Compute Stick.

Regards,

Amy.

Hi Amy, I've tried msrobota solution and it worked for mi ICS with the only exception that Windows is not activated so it doesn't let me update to Windows 10. My ICS came with Windows 10 out of the box (bought it in october) but since the last update (november), it stopped working and recovery doesn't work neither.

So the question is, is there anything I can do about it? Cause I don't have a serial number for Windows and it's not anywhere in the box.

I followed the steps just as msrobota decribe and it worked but Windows isn't activated.

Excuse my english pleace.

Thanks!

I can't reset nor refresh my ICS to factory defaults coz my recovery partition is lost after upgrading to Windows 10. I tried msrobota resetting instruction but to no avail. I guess i need to send my ICS to intel service centre for resetting.
