Y550 Lenovo recovery hidden partition visible and One Key recovery doesnt work

i tried to burn a Factory Recovery DVD using Onekey Recovery tool. i chose Create Recovery disk, selected Factory Default recovery disk and got to the burning options. The disks were successfully burnt. I tried to burn one more set for safety but I get the following error message. The program cannot find the service partition. This function is currently unavailable. Is there any solution for the problem?

restart your computer and try again or copying the disks using nero may help.

there are ways to activate hidden partition but not suggested.

I can definitely use Nero or some other burning software. But the problem is that the One Key Recovery software doesnt seem to work because it doesnt find the hidden partition anymore. So the problem now is bigger than just burning the DVDs.

like i said before copying the disks using nero may help.

there are ways to activate hidden partition but not suggested.

but i don't understand why you are trying to re-backup it with okr.

hope you'll find lenovo expert to fix it.

More than the backup, i am worried now whether one key recovery will work when I try to restore the factory default settings from the hidden partition. I have already taken the backup using Nero.

i'm sure it'll work.

if not, you can use your backup dvd.

or why don't you try it? start your computer with okr- key and test if it works.

I have been a bit busy and didnt try this till today. It actually doesnt work. When I start the laptop using the One Key Recovery button, it just starts up in normal mode. I believe I got into serious issues here.
