As you can guess, during clean windows 8 install recovery partitions were deleted and Z580 doesnt boot.
BESIDES sending the laptop back to Lenovo which i last option i have. Is there anyway i can re-install the original partitions and data by placing the hard drive into another laptop and using the working Windows 8 OS to create partitions .. etc ..
I know this is all over the forums but haven't found a solution post.
Please re-direct me if there is an answer or reply here.
Thanks in advance!

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
I’m sorry to inform you that as the clean installation is done while installing Windows 8 OS (Operating System) in Z580 Laptop the partition can be re-created if and only if recovery media is created before formatting the computer and if restored using the same recovery media, as there is no recovery media created, changing the Hard drive and installing will not work as expected.
