G50-80 - onekey recovery problem

After having many boot error screens while trying to start my g50-80 Lenovo, someone suggested I should do a factory reset.  

It was kind of a well hopefully that will fix other problems I have had... 

what that led to was using onekey recovery.  which absolutely does not work.  It is stuck in the initializing stage, for over 3 hrs.  If I try to restart the computer it automatically goes back to onekey.  It's an endless loop, and extremely frustrating for a computer less than a year old.

How do I get out of this groundhogs day nightmare?

Re: onekey recovery problem

Hi Mlpoof13 , 


Welcome to the Community Forums. 


In events that even One Key Recovery would fail the same as in booting up the machine, it would be better to run diagnostics test to check on the both physical integrity and image integrity of your harddrive.


Since the image is located on a hidden partition separate from the main Windows installation, the more that it may suggest issue with the entire harddrive performance.


You can use a bootable diagnostics to do this else slaving the harddrive on an external harddrive enclosure or placing it on another machine. 


Update us how it goes best for you.
