How many Partitions has a new Lenovo z580 Windows 8

Hello Forum,

seems to be a strange question, but my new Lenovo Idea Pad Z580 Windows 8 has turned up with 7 (SEVEN) partitions.
3 or 4 of them seem to be necessary, but the others?

 

  1. WINRE_DRV  (i suppose it's needed for recovery creation)
  2. System_C (for startup?)
  3. LRS_ESP - no idea
  4. 128MB unformated
  5. WINDOWS8_OS  - where everithing goes in
  6. LENOVO(D) - some folders with drivers etc
  7. PBR_DRV -  the recovery windows 8 environment?

Thank you

Hi
Welcome the forums
The reason for these many partitions is that win 8 pre-loaded systems have gpt partition. 3 are created by default for windows 8 . Then 1 recovery partition is okr backup and other is okr startup. The rest are gpt disks.

Thank you for your fast reply. It's the first time I have read something about GPT partitioning. Still was in the old MBR thing. Have to studdy it more.

Thank you very much for your help
