lenovo G500s, one key recovery problem,fixed with reset partition ID

I got a Lenovo G500s laptop from lenovo outlet. After resize the C, D partition, the One key recovery function was not working. Finally, got fixed , this is the summary.

System:
Lenovo G500s, windows8/64bit preinstall, 8GB RAM, 1T HD(only one HD), one key recovery 8.0

 

Problem:
1. Lenovo preset  C: 900GB, D: 25GB (why???????)
2. Resize partition to C:350GB, D:600GB(use freeware--- EASEUS Partition manager)
3. after then, One key recovery not working 


SolutionSmiley SadTRY AT YOUR OWN RISK)
1. Start a Command Prompt as an Administrator
2. >_  diskpart
3. >_   select disk 0
4. >_   list partition
some partitions show OEM partition type(most likely is patition 1, 3 and 7, these partitions were damaged)
select those partitions to check the type ID with the following commands

 

>_ select partition 7
>_ detail partition

the type ID should be de94bba4-06d1-4d40-a16a-bfd50179d6ac. if not,
 
>_ set id=de94bba4-06d1-4d40-a16a-bfd50179d6ac

 

>_ select partition 3
>_ detail partition

the type ID should be BFBFAFE7-A34F-448A-9A5B-6213EB736C22. if not,
 
>_ set id=BFBFAFE7-A34F-448A-9A5B-6213EB736C22

 

>_ select partition 1
>_ detail partition

the type ID should be de94bba4-06d1-4d40-a16a-bfd50179d6ac. if not,
 
>_ set id=de94bba4-06d1-4d40-a16a-bfd50179d6ac


Now, try the One key recovery
good luck

 

Reference:
I got the ID number from this link. Download the OKR8.0 ISO file , ID number is in file "create.ini".

Thanks IT WORKED WONDERFULLY on my G400s with windows 8. I RISKED it would work since you post it for LENOVO G 500s . But it DOES WORK ON G400s too. Thanks pal

I can not thank you enough.  I have a Z400 touch that I expanded the Lenovo partition on just to save backups there only to find out that it corrupted OKR.  I have since made the edits you suggested and I can now use OKR once again! thanks for posting this, you've saved me from needing to wipe and starting over again.

It's worth noting that I had two additional recovery partitions on my PC.

Partitions 1, 6,7,& 9 all had to be set to the "de94bba4-06d1-4d40-a16a-bfd50179d6ac"  ID before OKR started to work on my PC.
