I think it should work as this OKR engineering software is for all models which have novo button.

Re: Disk Partitioning and OneKey Recovery Feature

It worked perfectly!

One slight problem though. I was installing drivers, and after installing the audio driver on the Lenovo website, it says your "audio device is not functioning properly". Do you know what's wrong?

Thanks!

Re: Disk Partitioning and OneKey Recovery Feature

Hi Bodmas

 

I have finally found this website after searching high and low to find information in respect of Lenovo's and the OKR feature.  My query is I think slightly different in that I have not as yet deleted or altered ay of my partitions as I used a hard disk manager to check them before I took any further action.  I quickly recognized that there was a complicated setup on the hard disk (4 partitions already) and that touching this was likely to muck it up so I left it alone.

 

Having now found this site, I think I can now proceed to partition my hard disk with a little bit of help.  Firstly as I have already stated I have not touched the hard disk so far and it is in the original condition.  Therefore, what partitions is it safe for me to delete without me having to go through the steps of reinstalling all of the software or do I have to start from scratch again and build everything up again which seems a bit painful.  I already have backup disks created.

 

The hard disk partitions are:

 

14.75 GB (OEM Partition)

200 MB (System,Active, Primary Partition)

29.00 GB (Logical Drive) Lenovo (D:smileyhappy:

552.22 GB (Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, Primary Partition) Windows 7 (C:smileyhappy:

 

Thanks

Hi,

Can anyone summarize the complete procedure to upgrade/migrate a Lenovo hard disk to a bigger size? What are the steps to do?

 

But I guess the one key recovery engineering available is for 32 bits Win7 . I checked the files its created, it contains a x86 folder which is not the same as one with 64 bits Win7.

Thanks

hi cleon,
OKR engineering software is for both 32 bits and 64 bits. please do not get confused with the contents of the OKR DVD. I  have 64 bits win7 OS on my laptop and I have tested this OKR DVD successfully. As myself had lost the OEP partition accidentely( deleted it). then I found this OKR DVD and created the OEM partition successfully. Now My HDD has the follwoing parition:

1. 100 MB system reserved

2. 70 GB  C partition where my win7 Ultimate x64 bits are installed

3. 614 GB : D partiton where all my files are stored.

4. 14.6 GB  : OEM Reserved Partition (LENOVO_PART)

What's DOS?

by deleting this lenovo hidden parition you will not be able to use recovery function. at this time you are able to recover your whole C drive by pressing the Novo button under shutdown state of your laptop but deleting your lenovo hidden partition will destroy this onekey recovery function.

Re: OneKey Recovery Feature and warranty

hi grth99,

 

in my case (lenovo Ideapad Z570) I had deleted C and D drive using win7 x64 bits DVD and created C drive of 70 GB and D drive of rest size left (614 GB in my case) and installed win7 on C. after this I shutdown the system and pressed the NOVO button (one key rescue button) and it worked without any hitch/problem.

so you can also do it. before doing it you can have a back-up of OEM reserved parition :

 

just download this file: http://www.mediafire.com/?fsllr862sx83yn6

 

and run the PTEDIT32.exe file with Administrative privilage (right click the ptedit32.exe file and select "run as administrator"). you will get your HDD picture like this:

 

disk image.PNG

 

now you have to unhide this 4th partition. for this just change the value of type at the last (4th in my case) partition to 07 and click on "save changes" and reboot your system. see the below picture:

Capture07.PNG

 

after reboot you will see the "lenovo_part" partition. just copy all the contents of this parition and save to any external media storage (other than your laptop HDD). the below picture shows the contents of this OEM reserved partition:

lenovo_part1.JPG

 

now again run this PTEDIT32.exe and change the value of last partition "type" to 12 like in first picture and click on 'save changes' tab and reboot your system. now your OEM reserved parition is once again hidden.

 

now do what ever you want to do. if you face any problem further I am sure that you will get all help here. you are now safe 100%.

 

have a nice day.

Re: Disk Partitioning and OneKey Recovery Feature

After booting from the disk and choose option 2, then after the installation it automatically shutdown my computer. then I pressed the NOVO key, then I take the disk off, then after the Lenovo startup it shows a white bar and then the white bar keeps on blinling, almost 15 minutes and it keeps on blinking? Can I ask if Why it dint load to Recovery Station? Should I wait longer than 15 minutes? Pls. Help me I really need to use my computer.

Re: Disk Partitioning and OneKey Recovery Feature

[ Edited ]

My G770 seems to boot from the service partition because when I deleted it I could not boot. How do I get it to boot from the small 200MB partition? Easybcd shows the boot sector in the small 200mb partition.

 

So my questions are :-

 

1. Why did deleting the recovery partition prevent booting?

 

2. Can I use Easybcd to make sure it boots from the small partition?

 

I simply want to do away with OKR and use all the space on my SSD for Windows.  Naturally, I have Acronis back ups of all stages of this process.  I simply do not like the OKR process as, if you relied on it, disk failure would leave you grounded.

 

EDIT:- Thanks for all the helpful input Lenovo, though slightly better than trying to register my new G770 for Warranty. I have concluded LENOVO = LessENenergyOutputtingVerificationObligations
