Hey guys, I tried searching through the boards but I'm getting contradicting information so I was wondering if someone could clarify a few points for me!
Briefly, here's my situation. I have a Ideapad Y580 with a 32GB SSD + 1TB HDD combo running Windows 7 and I've created my factory recovery disks using the OneTouch Recovery applications. I'm planning on upgrading to Windows 8.
What I want to know is, in the advent that my upgrading process goes terribly wrong and that I somehow change my partitions sizes, will my recovery disks be able to recreate the original partitions and restore my system to the original format, i.e. brand-new-out-of-the-box status?

Thanks for the fast reply. My system is running with original factory settings, so that means Rapid drive is running, correct? And so, would that mean that my OKR disks would not be able to restore to factory settings?
And what do you mean by SSD working as cache? I thought Rapid drive was cache..

My Z580 came with a 500gb hdd, i made the factory recovery dvd on good quality dvd`s "infinity professional dvd+r" and the recording was verified, in total 3x dvd`s.
So i put a blank WD 500gb in my Z580 and tried the recovery dvd`s, the recovery prosses seemed to be going on, but it asked for the third dvd at 45% and then gave me a application failure error, i did search for the error and a few people have had this as well.
So i was wondering as well, does the hdd have to have the original partition's on it for the recovery dvd`s to work?
