How to restore "D" partition upon disk replacment

2015-06-23, 20:00 PM

Lenovo E431 Win 8.1

 

My HDD failed and I installed a new one of the same size. I bought the windows 8 recovery disk set (4 DVDs) from Lenovo (HDD failed 1 month after warranty expired). I tried to recover per the instructions but the first 2 DVDs (Applications and Drivers) would not boot. I successfully installed the windows 8 O/S but there is no "D" partition of Lenonvo apps. I need this partitios to fix some current errors.

 

 I have the first 2 DVDs, is there some way to install and have the recovery create the "D: partition without destroying my current "C" OS?

 

Thanks
