This is Minhas Ali, Recently I got Lenovo b570 with genuine windows 7 home premium, but unfortunately windows formatted now, when I asked to someone he said you have backup or setup in hard disk with name of "OEM reserve" and when I try to install it even shows that partition like Lenovo reserve etc, but now no OS in my laptop it said C drive is formatted, They didn't give me CD or DVD just said you have setup in harddisk, now please anybody tell me how I can reinstall window as I have product key in back of laptop, how do I reinstall my genuine windows without having CD from that reserve drive

Near to the power button there should be another button with a curved arrow.
Press this button to start Lenovo OneKey Recovery to boot into the reserve recovery partition.
When boot is complete, follow the onscreen instruction to restore the drive to factory default.
Let us know if this helps.

Have you created the recovery cd set using the One key recovery app from your system?If you can boot into windows and can perform the said operation do it at the earliest and restore your system.
If you cannot make the recovery media and the OKR function doesn't work from the hotkey,you may have to buy them from lenovo for a nominal price
