Question

I have the y560 0646 model with an i7 740qm and 8gigs of RAM. I was wondering in factory form how many partitions the HDD has. i thought it was just 2 but I recently noticed two more smaller partitions and wanted to know if this was normal, as I have not partitioned anything myself.

 

Here are my partitions:

 

Partition 0

Size 200 MB

 

partition 1

size 551 GB

 

partition 2

size 30.6 GB

 

partition 3

size 14.7 GB

 

Also, only partition 1 and 2 come up as NTFS

 

Is this normal, and what partition 0 and 3 for? 

Answer

 

This is a normal configuration.

 

A forummer had this:

Windows Boot Partition 200 MB

 

Windows System Partition appr. 550 GB

 

driver partition appr. 30 GB

 

OEM Partition

 

 

Reminder: Do be careful that your warranty may be affected when moving partitions. OEM Patition is absolutely necessary in order to use the OneKey Recovery feature. OS is preloaded, and could be lost.

 

Make sure you create recovery discs before attempting any alterations.
