One Key Recovery not Operation-able after Changing C-Partition Size (IdeaCentre B300)

2015-08-07, 12:07 PM

I am using an IdeaCentre B300 All In One PC.

Because of shortage of space for my Programs, I had extended the volume of The 'C' Partition. However, I did not know that this would result in my Recovery Partition becoming Unoperationable.


When I repeatedly press F2 on boot, the Windows Error Options open up with Options to Start Windows Normally, Safe Mode, etc. etc.

 

How do I make my Recovery Partition work again because I desperately need to restore my Computer.

 

(Windows 7 Home Basic)

It would really help me if someone could list the Details (type) of the Partitions of the Lenovo B300 with OEM.

That link is not needed.  The Lenovo Knowledge Base Article is just citing that link as the source of information used in writing the Knowledge Base Article you are reading.
