Y480: OneKey Recovery: Cannot 'Create Recovery disc with existing backup image'

Greetings everyone!

 

Problem 1

I have a new Y480 (Windows 7 - 64 bit). When using OneKey Recovery and choosing to attempt burning 'recovery discs with existing backup image', then the defaults are chosen on the next screen (Source: Default Path; Image Path: D:\Lenovo\OneKey App\OneKey Recovery\backup.wsi), an error of:

 

"The image file is not valid. Please select a valid image file"

 

appears.

 

The 'Select Another Image' option under the 'source' cryptically proves no help.

 

Problem 2

Also, It was stated in the documentation that system backups could be made to discs. NOT! Apparently the only option is a hard drive. It does not allow the disc drive to be a destination.

 

BTW... the D: partition is too small to accept a system backup! Who planned that out?

 

So... anyone out there able to help me make 'recovery discs with existing backup image'?

 

Thanks!

Hmm since the laptop is new,i would restore to factory settings,

 

that may be best .

 

Double click the OKR icon on your desktop and click on ''System Recovery''

 

a notice will pop up ''Do you want reboot your computer,into the system recovery environment''

 

click yes and then follow instructions.

 

Please note ''İnitial state''stands for factory settings,so choose that when the option appears.

 

Now AS SOON AS  the system is recovered,BEFORE doing anything else,

 

please check to see,if your current problems  still exist

 

Let us know how it goes.

Countrywise,

 

    Thanks for your suggestion. However, I wonder if this will 'lose' Windows 7 with a facory restore and will need to do a system restore too?

 

   I was able to make DVDs of the factory (=facory default recovery disc) and system (=factory disc with current system), just not the 'first' choice in OKR (=recovery discs with existing backup image).

 

Thanks again!

Scolex

i'm NOT sure what you mean.

A restore to factory settings will wipe the hdd and reinstall the system,

 

to how it was,the day you first bought it.(the pc i mean)

 

So you will need to back up your data beforehand.

 

A system restore point,will revert the system to how it was,

 

at the time the restore point was created.

 

So if you have a restore point,before these problems started,

 

then certainly try that first.and if that solves the problem,

 

then you're done.

 

İ'll have to log off in about one hour from now,

 

so if you reply after that,i'll be answering back tomorrow.

 

Let us know what you decide

 

and the outcome.

İf you were able to do the above,

 

without any errors given,then fine.

 

Were there any problems at all,creating the discs?

 

And by the way all options should function,not just some,

 

so my suggestions above,are best.
