Lenovo G580 - WIndows 8 - Resizing OS partition & problems with system recovery

Hello Everybody,


Just bought a Lenovo G580 notebook with pre installed Windows 8 (500gb harddisk, 4 gb RAM, Intel B960).I have been using Easeus partition manager with Windows 7 & its been working very well.So I wanted to partition my new HDD with it.Upon creating the a new 100gb partition (most importantly from OS partition that was about 428 gb) a very strange thing happened.The Refresh/Reset functions of WIndows 8 stopped working saying required recovery files are missing, also Lenovo One Key recovery program does not work with the message that required service partition is currently unavailable.At the same time, apparently  partition called Windows recovery  (1000 mb, hidden) still exists.One more peculiar thing I noticed & that is there is a new 1mb unallocated partition before the Windows recovery partition.While partitioning I did not receive any message about deleting of any data.One last piece of information (not sure if relevant) is before doing partition I had created a system image that I am unable to restore, Windows 8 repair function recognises the image bit is unable to restore it.


Any ideas how to restore the System Recovery functions or how to restore the system image.
