Deleted D:/Lenovo files, can't run OneKey (S10-3T)

Hello,

 

I own a S10-3T.  I upgraded Windows 7 Starter to Windows Professional 32-bit and accidentally deleted all the files in the D:/Lenovo partition.  The hidden partition is still available.

 

I wanted to revert back to the factory installation but now can't run OneKey.  When I try using OneKey, the system just boots straight into Windows.

 

Can someone help me get OneKey working again?

 

Thanks for your help!

Hi e8baller and welcome to the community,

 

The only way that I know how to get the D: back is to run a set of restore discs.  If you didn't burn a set, then you'll have to make a call to service and get yourself a set.

Thanks for your suggestion topmahof.

 

I did not burn a set unfortunately.  I called Lenovo and I was told recovery discs would cost $59.  I'd like to avoid paying that if there is another solution.

 

Can you (or anyone reading this thread) give me a screenshot or a list of the main folders in your S10-3T "D:/Lenovo" drive?

 

From what I can remember, the drive only contained drivers but I just want to make sure.

 

Thanks again!

Hi e8baller,

 

I don't have an S10, but on my U160 D: contains all the drivers and applications that were provided upon startup. 

 

The setup for OKR was also in there. I'm fairly certain that OKR has to access D: when it runs.

did you assign letter or create a new volume for d:?
if there is unallocated space, try to make a new volume, okr should work after.

Re: Deleted D:/Lenovo files, can't run OneKey (S10-3T)

Thank you all for your replies.

 

I believe the problem was with the MBR.  At one point, I installed Android with grub.  When I was finished playing with Android, I reinstalled a fresh copy of Windows 7 Professional.  I didn't know that installing Android changed the MBR.

 

Using advice and tools found on various boards, I was able to get OneKey to work a single time.  This allowed me to reset the system back to the factory state and create recovery discs.  However, when I tested OneKey again, it did not work.

 

So I had semi-success.  OneKey stills does not work (I tested again several times).  But I was lucky to get OneKey working at least once so I could make recovery discs (and not spend $59 to get them from Lenovo).
