You know what ? I got a solution that will save Lenovo $$$$$'s and have much less hassles with frustated customers.
Forget about OKR....it sux , no doubt.
Somebody should code a app that takes the OKR image and covert it to a Windows ISO .
(Now I can hear somebody screaming OKR , but you know how hard it is to find that app on the net ??? and one small tinker and it's all buggered)
Easy....just leave us the Factory ISO in the hidden partition . simple , no worries.
I,ll Bill Lenovo for that bit of advice that will re-gain 10000's of old and new costomers. :-)

Humm so if my hard drive dies then I have no operating system. Bad choice by lenovo as I paid for the operating system when I purchased the computer. If the hard drive dies then okr will not give me a usable system since it will not restore so lenovo will make me purchase the operating system from them, will that even work since the factory image will not work?
This is why all manufacturers need to be including your purchased operating system cd/dvd so if your hard drive crashes you can buy a new one and install the operating system you all ready paid for.

First of all the y560 series is a very good choise for daily work and gaming
After a while of use, the system gets dumped with a lots of trash and considered about a fresh install
So I discovered that OneKey has the ability to restore the system to its defaults, so I did the backuping of files and stuff
I opened OKR, went to "Create recovery disk", chose Create factory default image. The process started and, with the bar almost filled up, stopped responding for about 25mins. I was in lack of documentation about OKR, I didnt know about that there was a service partition... After those 25-30min I just shut down the laptop via the power button. after the restart I turned the OKR app again, then clicked on the make factory image and OKR shows a message containing that the service partition is unavailable. when I open my computer the partition is visible and there, untouched.
I had virtual dvd/cd devices, could they be the reason because OKR stopped, and while using make factory image option I didnt put any dvd/cd rom's into the drive.
is there any way to make OKR work with the service partition without sending the laptop back?
and if not, can other Factory default recovery discs made by other y560 be used with mine?
