Lenovo G780 partition recovery problem

Hi,

 

I have used EaseUs Partition Master to resize your Windows 8 partitions, and I have problem to create Windows recover drive and also use one key recovery. Partition master cant handle partition type properly.

 

I found this topic: 

http://amigotechnotes.wordpress.com/2013/12/07/recover-lenovo-one-key-rescue-after-resizing-partitio...

but he has different partitions and laptop then i do.  

 

I have G780, i7, 1TB drive. 

my partitions are:

 

Partition ### Type Size
------------- ---------------- -------
Partition 1 Reserved 128 MB
Partition 2 OEM 1000 MB
Partition 3 Primary 260 MB
Partition 4 OEM 1000 MB
Partition 5 Primary 883.4 GB
Partition 6 OEM 450 MB
Partition 7 OEM 350 GB
Partition 8 OEM 25 GB
Partition 9 OEM 20 GB

 

So if i want to fix this problem I need to know the correct partition types and change them. 

Does any know them and can send the to me, please?

Or tell me other way how to fix my problem?

Or can I maby just download Windows 8 and delete all partition and install clean W8, will it work?

 

Thank you very much.

Hi Ariesko,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community!

 

I’m sorry to hear that the recovery issue has occurred in your G780 Laptop, as third party software is used to make the changes in the partition it cannot reset its functionality by re-creating the partition. The only way to backup the pre-installed OS (Operating System) in the computer by creating Recovery Drive using the below link:

 

Hope to hear back soon

 

Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

Hi Ariesko,

 

I understand your concern but performing the steps in the above link USB recovery drive can be created within windows and the License/Serial Key cannot be disclosed.

 

Do post us back for further queries.

 

Best Regards
