OneKey Recovery media...

2011-03-01, 17:12 PM

Hi all,

 

Just got my U460 system couple weeks ago.  Wanted to create recovery disc so I can put another harddrive in.  I used an external dvd burner and OneKey Recovery console said that it would take 3 4.7GB discs.  However, the process was "completed" after burning 2 disc.

 

When I try to boot from the first of the 2 disc, the reading would halt and after some time, it'll say that the disc is not bootable.  I tried it again thinking that my dvd might be bad but the same thing happen to anther set of recovery disc.

 

I wonder if anyone has experienced the same problem and if a solution has been sought.

 

Thanks!

it's possible not both of the discs are bootable. ( the first one is bootable )

even if you burn the discs, they may not work on new harddisc.

try easeaus disc copy.

Y560 - Partitions - Ubuntu - 200 MB partition

2011-03-06, 15:20 PM

Allright,

 

First, I've had read too many pages about the OKR and disk partitions.  I could care less about OKR working.  I am using CloneZilla to backup my Windows OS partition completely.

 

My question is this, I know I can delete the 'hidden' partition that has all the drivers on it (currently is 14.75GB). 

 

I have already successfully resized my C (Windows) to be 86GB & my D drive (FILES) to be 366GB.

 

What is up with the little 200MB partition?  It's rather annoying b/c of the partition limits we have with windows & NTFS. Can I delete it,or merge it?  I've seen some talk of this but nothing definitive enough for my liking.

 

I am going to dual-boot with linux and shares the NTFS files partition to save all my J.  It would be nice to have 2 partitions available to play with in Linux to give me the flexibility there.

 

Thanks for checking this out and for any suggestions/tips!

you can delete the hidden partition.
the 200 mb partition includes system and boot files that windows needs to work properly. do not delete that partition.

Use Extended partitions in Linux.

Sweet, thanks guys.

 

I deleted that lenovo partition, shrank my files D partition, and left about 40GB for my linux partition. I am now copying my ~200GB of data back onto my new D partition =]

 

If I understand correctly, you can create one partition (extended), in which other partitions can be created for system/swap etc.

if you make changes on volumes, okr will stop working.
it seems you already made partitions ( i don't think y560 comes with 3 volumes, as i know system ( c ) and data ( d ) volumes only )
