I upgraded my W700 to Windows Seven Business clean install.
I have the two hdd in raid 0 :
one volume with the system the second for the data.
I don't have a recovery partition (clean install)
The Lenovo software is up to date.
When I try to install Rescue and recovery, at the end of the process it stops : error type 6 (that's mean it can change the partition to active - read in the doc)
I really appreciate if somebody can give me the solution.
I don't want to buy Acronis or Ghost to do the same job.

the common reason for this is a missing of old RAID driver.
Can you please tell me what is the verison of the Matrix(RAID) driver, that you have installed.
Also please let me knwo, what is the SATA configuration in the BIOS.
This is a pure sata driver issue, that RnR cannot read and change the partition table.
So in case you want to get over this without a change to the system, then you can install RnR without having the partition insatlled. You can use this installation command to do it:
Pelase let me know, any details to this situation, that might help me with this.

Thank you for your help.
The Intel Matrix Storage Manager is up to date : v8;9;1;1003 ICH9M-E
The raid is enable in the bios.
I have only one raid 0 volume.
I manage a huge free space on the hard drive but this don't change nothing.
I always have the Type 6 error at the end of the install.
I didn't try to install in the command line.
If i do it, I didn't have diagnostic system available ?

thanks for getting back on this.
If you install RnR using the command line, that I provided, then you will have all the options as usual, BUT the RnR virtual partition will not be created and also the boot record of your system will not be changed, which should fix the error, that you are receiving.
This of course will also lead to the situaiton, that you will not be able to use the F11 by the system boo to start into the RnR partition, as it will not be installed.
Please let me know, if you have tested the installation using this method.

I apologize for the delay but i have not internet and i have to find a hot spot.
Any way, i tried the command line and i have the same error in return.
I found a workaround.
I came back to no raid sata drive, i made a clean install and like this i installed Rescue and Recovery without problem. I installed it at first before "System Update".
I made a new clean install because when i want to restore my image disk of Seven on the hard-drive Windows don't let me do it. Probably because it thinks that it's not the same computer.
I will try with R & R. If you change your hard drive and you can't restore the entire system, why make a backup ?
Thank you very much for your help

thank you for your post. It really helped me out.
Based on this, it seems to be on 99% an issue of the RAID driver vs RnR.
I'll doublecheck this once I'll be back in Lab.

Some news !
I make a new clean install on raid 0 configuration.
After installed the os, I installed Microsoft C++ 2005 sp1 and Rescue and Recovery.
I can install it without any problem !
I don't know that's happened before.
I didn't try it yet, but it lunchs and seems to work fine. Strange...

thanks for the post.
Hmmm, that might be just some configuration issue, or RAID issue.
However, as right now it's working fine, could you please mark this thread as closed.
