Lenovo G770 Recovery Partition

Hi all, need a bit of advice. First of all, just a bit of background information:

 

I was working away one night doing some word processing and shut my laptop down for the night, turned it back on the next morning to be greeted by a start-up repair loop, I tried various things to repair this i.e. restoring system, software, security etc., running chkdsk, bootrec, etc. and nothing - OneKey Recovery would also not work. It told me something along the lines of a partition had been changed, when I have never modified the partitions on my laptop.

 

Long story short, nothing would work and so I have had to do a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium and this removed all of the partitions in the process - I have reinstalled all of my drivers so the sound, ports etc. are all working but of course now everything is going to be on the C: drive. Is there a way I can set it up how it used to be with a separate drive for the system and to get the recovery drive back? I am cautious about having everything on C:, even though I make backups of all my important files.

 

A step-by-step tutorial would be great, I managed to recover my important documents through xcopy however I am no computer expert.

 

Thank you for your time.

Re: Lenovo G770 Recovery Partition

Hi Joolker,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

I’m sorry to hear that your G770 Laptop was not booting to windows and working as expected after re-installing the OS (Operating System) in the computer. Below are the steps to create Recovery Discs and also to create the backup of the data using OKR (One Key Recovery):

 

Do post us back for further queries.

 

Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

Or you could attempt the following procedure, it involves OKR7 Engineering DVD and re-partitioning (if you are willing to start from scratch - backup your data):
