One key to install windows on new HArd drive

My Lenovo's hard drive died. I installed a new hard drive on the laptop. How do I now get windows back on this PC using the one key feature?  It's a Lenovo Y50–70 touch.

Re: One key to install windows on new HArd drive

The OneKey partition is in your old hard drive, so you'll have to clone your old hard drive to your new hard drive. Here's one I use: https://www.macrium.com/reflectfree

 

Alternatively, you can install a fresh copy of Windows. You'll need to create Windows media (with another computer), and use that as your boot device to install Windows to the new hard drive. Use the media creation tool: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

 

Let me know if you have any questions Smiley Happy

Re: One key to install windows on new HArd drive

Windows worked for about two weeks and now the computer doesn't seem to be recognizing the new hard drive?  I tried to reinstall windows and it saying it doesn't have a hard drive to install it on?
