Hi rahul2000


Welcome to the Community Forums. 


Guidance for Lenovo OneKey Recovery, hidden partition and Recovery DVD (ordered from Lenovo).

If the hidden partition is destroyed or replaced hard drive, you won't be able to restore the system through Lenovo OneKey Recovery software. You need to utilize the Recovery DVD, read more from below related articles:"
How to recover the system to Factory settings with Recovery Discs
How can I get a system recovery CD, DVD or USB from Lenovo 


Formatting would delete the hidden partion during the clean install on your harddrive.

You can call in tech support for orders of your recovery media.


You can also simply download Windows 8 media ISO to clean install it matching the OEM product key embedded on the systemboard so you would not need to purchase. You can use this tutorial for additional reference.


Hope this help answer your query.
