I bought lenovo g50-70 which came with pre installed windows 8. I created backup using one key recovery and stored it in drive. After some time i messed up with partitions with easus partition manager and installed windows 10. Now i have that backup available and want to restore from it. however one key recovery is not working. when i press nova button and select system recovery, nothing happens. system boots normally.

Welcome to the Community Forums.
There maybe chance of restoring the OKR features if you can undo the repartitioning back to the original defaults. Else would need to manually clean install Windows 8 to get back to Windows 8 or to have it sent to the Lenovo facility for proprietorship reimaging if you still have warranty coverage.
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:

Thank you for your response. I don't know the default setup of partitions. Can u guide me from where I can get idea of default partitions? also now can I create recovery media such as dvd from existing okr backup?

Here is an article that you can try, take note of the steps.
I was hoping that your partition tool can undo it but if the steps mentioned fails then we may already lost it and any created okr backup would no longer work.
