Try booting with a linux/ubuntu live cd (do not install - and use a pendrive instead of a cd). You should be able to see the partitions.

If you are referring to the DIY procedure, it requires that the partitions be intact and the unit's OS still operational. Step VI states that those two partitions can be copied using Ubuntu.

 

The program from the Evozi website can recreate all the partitions but files in the PBR_DRV will not contain the OS installer. Even without this you can still recover if you have an OKR backup tucked away. In other words, you can restore if you have the okr user backup image and use it in conjunction with the evozi program. But you can't use the restore to factory default.

Re: A DIY Project: Creating a bootable OKR 8 Recovery USB Flash Drive

Hi all:

 

I have a SLI model y510p which has long had its drive replaced and wiped. My question is I have the wbi file's and onekey folder it made (basicaly my factory backup) on a external drive and am wondering how i get my fresh hdd to have the one key software on it so that i can use my nova button to have onekey fire up and find my ext and factory restore the laptop? The most I need out of the install is the oem edition and windows key since I dont have a 8 key at the moment or else I would just isntall fresh and go get the drivers my self. So where do I get the media for the 8 onekey installer?

 

Thanks

Malcolm

Refer to message 64 step III for the link.

 

What is important are the wsi files and not the OKR folder which contain the windows version of OKR that you can see in C drive. It is important that those files are working properly because there are users that are having some problem restoring them.

Thanks the files should be intact as I Had a never actually used one key as i use acronis for pretty much all my backup stuff since it can be mounted on any of my machines but when lenovo failed to send me a speaker to replace a failed one I had to send it to a service center from them so wiped my original drive times over since work data was on it. When I got it back frist thing was to setup windows again from the stock isntall they had put back on it and make a one key for the future.

If you are not interested in OKR then those backup made by Acronis are good enough. However, if OKR is to be functional then I'm afraid those files will not restore it properly. That is why I have presented the guides in this thread.

My acronis backups have long since been scraped because of other reasons. Do I need to make the usb or can I simply burn the iso to a disc and use it tMyhat way to install the okr? If it is required to do all of the steps I will do them just wondering before I wipe a 64GB flash drive.

The iso given in the link only provides the files to run OKR using the NOVO button plus the creation of all necessary partitions. It does not include the OS. So if you want the OS to be included you need to follow my guide. It should put everything in the condition when you first receive your unit with the option to choose the size of C and D drive. Instead of 16 GB use 32 GB flash drive.
