There is nothing wrong with the partitions. What exactly are you looking for?

I read the post that says if the partitions are correct the novo key should work. I want to check mine partitions are correct or wrong.

1 gb + 0.26 gb + 1 gb + 651.30 gb + 25 gb + 20 gb = 698.56 gb
This is approximately the 750 GB Hdd that you have.

 

Why not just push the NOVO button and see if it works or not?

 

TBH, there are files in the partitons used by the NOVO button and OKR and if they are erased, the button and OKR no longer work even if you have restored the correct partition.

I push the NOVO key it goes to a Novo menu, but when I select boot to bios, choose the booting method or recovery, the secure boot message shows up. I have to click "ok", then the lenovo logo shows up and log into win 8.

Yes that is the effect of using the Acronis program and according to this thread http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8-system/image-failed-to-verify-with-access-denied/71ef02ff-abee-4916-ae45-72ef20c178ba?msgId=d9c874db-0554-446d-a23c-d6b83e6acdcf the only way is to restore to factory default. But your NOVO okr program is no longer working. That is another problem.
