Today i would like to show everyone the process in which we create the onekey recovery feature in a pen drive.
First we will prepare the pen drive
1) Run command prompt (cmd). This can be done by clicking start and typing typing cmd in Windows 7. In Windows Xp, click on start and then click on run. Type cmd and run. This will open the command prompt
2) Then run diskpart utility from command prompt, by typing ‘diskpart’ on command prompt and pressing enter. This will run the diskpart utility in a separate windows
3) Now put in your pendrive in a USB port. 16 GB or 32 GB pendrive is best for this purpose. Now go back to the diskpart console and type ‘listdisk’ and press enter. This will list the various storage devices available. You can see the size column of the disk and here we can see that ‘disk 2′ is our pen drive. Warning: In your computer it may be some other number. In our case it is ‘disk 2′.
4) Then you have to type ‘select disk 2′ and press enter. Note: in our case it is disk 2, in your case it may be disk 3, or disk 1 or any other number. You can enter ‘detail disk’ to see the details of the disk after selecting it to verify that you have selected the correct disk.
5) Then you have to run a series of commands. The commands to be run in the order are:
- create partition primary
- select partition 1
- format fs=fat32
6) The format step will take some time. You can have a tea or coffee in the meantime and come back. After the format is complete you have to run ‘assign’ command. And after this you can exit diskpart utility by entering the ‘exit’ command. The steps are shown below:
Now after this,
Download Ptedit32.exe application from the internet.
Through ptedit, change the partition type of the OEM partition to 07 from 12.
Now through diskpart assign the oem partition a drive letter so that you can access it.
Copy all the files from the Lenovo part partition to the removable disk.
Download bootsect tool from the internet.
Copy it some where as you like it for instance i have coppied it to C:\
Now run CMD again and as admin.
Type cd C:\
Then type bootsect /nt60 X:\
Here x is the drive letter of the removable disk.
Now run ptedit32.exe again and then change the partition size of the OEM partition back to 12.
Now you are done.
Note: this may work. It worked flawlessly for me.

Hey ishaan, sorry for a really late post, but I followed all of lyour instructions, but when I tried to copy the lenovo files into the USB there a file that was too big for fat32 to handle on the usb.
I tried formatting the USB to NTFS instead so that I could copy the files, but now when I try to boot to the usb, it says bootmgr missing.
Please help if you can.
