Re: how to use Recovery disks

hi Praveen_k,


Welcome to the Lenovo Community.


If your friend has a preloaded Windows 8 OS and created a recovery disc using One Key Recovery 8.0 (see image below), then he will need to press the One Key Recovery button to restore the backup that he created (assuming your friend didn't deleted the hidden partition). Also, see this alternate mehod.



If your friend has a Windows 7 pre-installed, verify if he followed this instruction to create the recovery discs. If he did, he will need to boot from the discs that he created starting from disc one up to the last one.



Hope this helps
