Would need some help for the OKR. Currently using Y450
System came with 3 partitions, Large C: , Small D: , Service Partition [Pre-installed Vista]
Copied whole service partition out onto a external HDD.
Formatted Main HDD partitions without touching the service partition, then installed XP on my system
After the XP installation, C: Drive is my "Service Partiton" and i can see ALL files which is supposed to be hidden (don't ask me why, I don't know -.-)
D: Drive is my XP System files and everything else (1 HUGE partition 480GB).
So right now, when i try to create recovery disks selecting the file on my
C: Drive "Service Partition" factory.wsi file, i keep hitting this error :
Fail: error code 0xE0DD001F
An internal program error has occured.
Also, my Optical Drive also seems to die off after hitting this error, I can't eject, read, anything at all! I have to restart the whole System to get it to work again, its as if the power to the optical drive just died.
I have applied all the possible updates/patches for OKR, still nothing works. How can i fix this?

1) You can't just copy the entire partition and expect the recovery process to work...
2) You now cannot create your recovery disks because you have a) changed the partitions b) have removed the ability for the OKR partition to function.
3) The only option you have now is to send your computer into the Depot and have them reimage your HDD...
Also, while you are talking to them, ask them how to create a proper set of recovery disks through a backup and ask if they have Recovery disks they can send you... if they are available.
