due to we had a long running discussion in the forum on disk partioning and one key recover feature, i thought it'd be better to start new one.
please, check the previous thread before asking any question about this issue.

Ok, I wiped my drive of vista and did a fresh install of windows 7. I killed all partitions. I need to know how to recreate the partitions. Yes I used the search function and used the ptedit.exe method, but it didn't work. Help.

if you make any changes on volumes, one key recover stops working. i suggest to contact lenovo support to ship your laptop to resettings the hard disk volumes for defaults.
still, there might a chance to save you, please provide information below :
right click my computer > manage > disk management
post the information about your volumes on disk 0.

you can order recovery disks but if you deleted all the volumes - which you did - , one key recover and recover disks won't work on your system.
contact lenovo support to ship your laptop to resettings the hard disk volumes for defaults.

I have been playing with partitions for a while, extending, creating, deleting, extending.... Anyways, the point is, now I have 4 partitions, one of which is Winodws 7, the other one is the drivers, another one created by me as document, and a fourth one the OEM partition. The OEM partition is like any other partition. When i start onekey recovery and want to boot from it, it says the partition is unavailable and cannot be detected. When i load linux and set this partition as the boot one, it boots into it and starts CMD, not the usual wizard that helps me do what I need to do.
Anyways, how do I get OneKey Recovery to recognize this partition again?
The Windows copy that I have is a clean install, not OEM.

due to you resized your volumes, one key recover won't work.
- you can ship your laptop back to lenovo support line to reset your harddisk to default
- if you have recovery dvds, you can use it ( may work ) but you also may need to resize the volumes to defaults.

as i know, recovery discs doesn't/won't partition the volumes.
if you edit the partitions and want to use one key recover again, you have to re-edit partitions as the same size as they are before.
hope this helps.
( as i remember, this is the first question about this issue )
