Reinstalling windows after crash

Hi. My computer crashed. Luckily the Lenovo partition seems intact. However I can not start the computer. Is there a way which I can reach the Lenovo partition from F2 or F12 when starting the computer as to reset the whole harddrive and reinstall everything from scratch? Thanks!

Re: Reinstalling windows after crash

Hi Shabbo23,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


If your machine model have One Key Recovery feature, using the Novo button to turn on the computer would launch it and have the factory reset from OKR initial backup to restore.


You can check the novo button location from the user guide that can be downloaded from the support site here. Assuming that the hidden partition is not damaged this should work as expected and restore both windows and drivers back.


Hope this helps answer your query.
