B575 1450 Can't access Hidden partition to reinstall

2017-11-27, 22:57 PM

I need to reinstall. I've attempted to access the original image via the button (forget the Lenovo word for the built in reinstall script) but it does not bring up the wizard, or prompt me to it after a reboot.  After much (days) troubleshooting. Nww I can only get to the boot menu.  I'm pretty sure my bootloader is hosed. But my understanding it is not the standard bootloader for Windows 7. So I can't even utilize my windows 7 diskette from another system to rebuild it.


I've even downloaded and tried Hiren's BootCD. But don't know which tool to try to utilize. I have no original external media to use. I have been able to use partition magic to see my C, but that's it. I have no idea where the image is on it
