new disk partioning and one key recover feature

2011-02-05, 13:47 PM

due to we had a long running discussion in the forum on disk partioning and one key recover feature, i thought it'd be better to start new one.

 

please, check the previous thread before asking any question about this issue.

 

thanks!

Y550 One Key Recovery, How to...

2010-03-13, 1:04 AM

Ok, I wiped my drive of vista and did a fresh install of windows 7. I killed all partitions. I need to know how to recreate the partitions. Yes I used the search function and used the ptedit.exe method, but it didn't work. Help.

if you make any changes on volumes, one key recover stops working. i suggest to contact lenovo support to ship your laptop to resettings the hard disk volumes for defaults.

 

still, there might a chance to save you, please provide information below :

right click my computer > manage > disk management

post the information about your volumes on disk 0.

you can order recovery disks but if you deleted all the volumes - which you did - , one key recover and recover disks won't work on your system.

 

contact lenovo support to ship your laptop to resettings the hard disk volumes for defaults.

OEM Partition & OneKey Recovery

2010-09-01, 2:14 AM

Hello,

 

I have been playing with partitions for a while, extending, creating, deleting, extending.... Anyways, the point is, now I have 4 partitions, one of which is Winodws 7, the other one is the drivers, another one created by me as document, and a fourth one the OEM partition. The OEM partition is like any other partition. When i start onekey recovery and want to boot from it, it says the partition is unavailable and cannot be detected. When i load linux and set this partition as the boot one, it boots into it and starts CMD, not the usual wizard that helps me do what I need to do.

 

Anyways, how do I get OneKey Recovery to recognize this partition again?

 

The Windows copy that I have is a clean install, not OEM.

due to you resized your volumes, one key recover won't work.

- you can ship your laptop back to lenovo support line to reset your harddisk to default

- if you have recovery dvds, you can use it ( may work ) but you also may need to resize the volumes to defaults.

Re: new disk partioning and one key recover feature

2011-02-06, 14:06 PM
Hi, I am new here and believe me or not I read most of the previous topic, but I still have a question.

I have a brand new lenovo Z460 - i5 - 4GB W7 Home Basic 64, but I'd like to run Ubuntu, and have a separated partion for my personal data instead of mantain all in the same partition for Windows

So just in case I have created the 3 DVDs recovery system, and tested them to turn the z460 to the factory default again, and it works well... but I let the partitions untouched at that test.

My question is simple:

If I recreate the whole partion table, can I use the DVDs to recovery the factory default condition? Trying to be more clear... the DVDs will recreate the same partions on the disk? Someone tested it?

Thanks in advance and sorry for my poor english

as i know, recovery discs doesn't/won't partition the volumes.

if you edit the partitions and want to use one key recover again, you have to re-edit partitions as the same size as they are before.

 

hope this helps.

 

( as i remember, this is the first question about this issue )
