Re: Disk Partioning and OneKey Recovery Feature

Just two passwords -- one for the hard drive and one for windows.  And yes, every time.  It might be possible to remove them later on by going back into the CMOS, but I am not sure how to do that since I misplaced my little book.  The help section in the CMOS may be able to help you out there.  I just leave it alone and continue as is.  Doesn't bother me that much.

Janice,

Another question: when I boot up after making the security settings you said I will be asked for a password to gain access to the harddrive Which password would that be: HDD Master or HDD user? (I would imagine it would be the user, but want to get it straight before I do work and panic upon trying to restart my computer the first time after doing the security settings.

I am not sure, but I believe it is the master.  Just write both down and when the time comes, try both.  Or, make them both the same -- then, no question.

I bought an IdeaPad Y550 for my niece.  Anybody know where I tell her to look for instructions on how to create recovery disks for it?

Hi!

I bought friday an IdeaPad U350, installed Vista, updates and so on. My laptop was working veery slow. So I decided to make a recovery from OneKey. But there was an error, I had to stop the process (It made 0% anyway) After reboot I have the bootmgr messge. I reinstalled Vista from a DVD, my hidden partition was shown on MyComputer. OneKey button does not work. I've tried to use an utility found on the internet to resolve button bot no help. They say to change the type of partition to 12 bot no use. Furthermore, I cannot see the partition anymore in MyComputer. It is in drive management. What can I do to recover my computer to initial state, with onekey button working?

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

I just bought a new Ideapad y450 with a 250gig hard drive.  I recently installed the windows 7 rc and used DBAN to format my hd.  DBAN claimed I had 238gigs, while windows 7 claims I have 233, which is odd in itself.  My question is:  I never once saw the "hidden service partition".  Does this mean that I already got rid of it, or is it lurking somewhere in the background taking up 17gigs of hd space???  Or is my hd just 233/238 instead of 250?  Also, if anyone knows why DBAN would asses my hd larger than windows did, that would also be appriciated.

 

Thanks alot!

Hi Janice,

I made a password for the hard disc and the user password too. I went to disc manager and can see the 14 gb partition in the disk management section of windows (which I couldnt see before). What do I do next. Should I delete that partition, and if I do this, will the paragon partition manager work (right now, I still can't do anything with this program as it does not see any adjacent partitions.)

Thanks

dveda

OK, I finally got the Paragon Partition manager to help me out, and now have a C drive that should be big enough to make life easier for me. Thanks to you, Janice

Dveda -- Good work!! Glad you were able to get it all done.  These issues are not easy to solve, but a little perserverance pays off.

I noticed this evening that my recovery partition is visible under My Computer as the G drive.  I don't know how or when this happened, but would like to know if this is bad, and if so, how to hide it again.

 

Thanks,
Lori
