OneKey Recovery on New HardDrive

[ Edited ]

I own a lenovo ideapad Z570, and want to upgrade to a larger HDD(from 600GB to 1TB).

The only thing bothering me is the "OneKey Recovery".

So, my question is : How do I make the OEM and Recovery partitions, just after installing windows7 on a new(blank) HDD to facilitate the "OneKey Recovery".

Hi
Do you want to have the oem install(with the pre-installed apps or you are flexible with a clean install of windows?
The okr partition will only be there in the factory installed hdd and it wont work even if you copy the partition without making any changes. If you want, you can also make a custom recovery partition of one key recovery with your own backup

Re: OneKey Recovery on New HardDrive

The size of the recvoery partition is 14.75gb and would remain the same.
You can only allocate size of the c and drive

Hi
Firstly, you will have to wipe one partition since basic disk allows 4 drives at maximum with the recovery drive.
Secondly, have you made the recovery partition via one key recovery engineering?

Edit:- And just to tell you that ask the queries on that particular thread it self since it is regarding that and others might require the same help.

Re: OneKey Recovery on New HardDrive

you can also activate the oem partition...on your new hard drive install windows (no need to enter activation key) go to cmd and type "diskpart". then type "list volume". when u found ur oem partition type "select volume x" (x is ur oem partition) then type "active"...but only if u want to restore using external hard drive or flash drive.Smiley Happy

Hi

Your idea is great, but would only work if the partition sizes are not changed too. Op is changing from 500 gb to 1tb and that would hange the partition sizes and due to that recovery wont start the factory reset  and woud give the same notification as reported by a forum member link626

Sorry that i wont be able to provide link for that since i didn't find it

Hi 

There is absolutely no problem in asking me, i just want to help peopleSmiley Wink

You dont need to burn cd's, just a waste of time. Use a pen drive instead. Just follow the following

Use Nero to mout the iso or use power iso instead.

The insert the usb drive(note you will need to format it meaning all data would be lost)

Open command prompt as administrator, then type the following series of comands

Diskpart

 

A new windows would open or sometimes it opens in same windows

 

list disk (you will get two disks or three, varying according to the device connected)

Select disk # (# denotes the correct disk number, be sure what you choose ie correspond from the sizes)

Clean

Create partition primary

Format fs=fat32 quick

assign

active

exit

 


Now, copy the files from the iso to the pen drive and then boot from it and type 1 in okr engineering(note that will delete all partitions and existing files, be sure to backup) Then, in between it will ask for language, type the number corresponding to EN-US

Then you can move on to install windows and drivers and follow the guide.

Then afeter finalizing everything, make a new backup by pressing the novo key to power on.

Do ask if anything is not clear to you.
