Y570 Unknown Disk 1 Not initialized/OEM Partition



I just got a new Y570 Laptop with a 64 gb ssd. In the disk management window, there are two hard drives listed. There is a disk 0, which has four partitions on it, and a disk 1 which is unknown and initialized. Disk 0 is the HDD that comes with the computer. When I try to initialize Disk 1, I get a message saying The disk cannot find the sector requested. What does this mean? Also, is disk 1 the ssd that I'm supposed to have?


Another problem:

On my hdd, I have an empty partition that says Healthy (OEM partition). It has no file system or letter assigned to it. It is 14.75 gb, and according to disk management, all 14.75 gb are free. What is it, and can I delete it without affecting anything else on my computer?

hi galaxion2,

first of all, do not delete the 14.75 gb partition. it's hidden/system partition that your computer will need to use it during one key recover process.

secondly, as you noticed, disk1 is ssd.
