Re: Disk Partitioning and OneKey Recovery Feature on Y410

2010-09-16, 21:10 PM

 hacktrix2006 thank you for your answer.

When I was making the backup (its goes back to 3 years ago and I don't remember the details) I selected to backup the C drive or windows only or something like that. Do you think I still could get the recovery partition back by running the backup?

 

 

"

I formatted the recovery partition mistakenly but I have a set of recovery DVD''s

can i recover the "recovery partion" by running the recovery dvd's or they will recover the drive C only?

"

Yes that will restore the recovery Partition!

unless you have a factory restore backup then the recovery partition will not be there.

If you did C: only that is what you'll only get.

So as my warranty is expired there's no way to install a fresh windows unless I buy a new one. Is there any other way?

press f12 for bios order, make sure the #1st device is dvd-rom, save and exit.

as i know ( not sure ), recovery dvd re-formats whole hard disk.

Yes you can contact Lenovo for a recovery disc with the all the factory defualts.

Your recovery disc will restore the partition if the backup was of the Factory Defualt image

Problem with downloading Windows 7 is the Key will not work on the COA sticker.
