Factory default on IdeaPad S206 after disk failure

A friend of mine bought Ideapad S206 4 years ago with Win 7 and made Win System Image backup at that time. Recently his hard drive failed. I bought a new hard disk ( slightly larger than the original one  - 500G )  for him and recovered from Win system image backup made 4 years ago. However, Windows does not start complaining that something changed and I cannot repair.with common tools. I wanted to use Lenovo One Key recovery  to get to the factory default, but this does not work ( does not start when I press the other power button ).  When I boot from Win install USB stick ( from other system ) I can see through command prompt and Diskpart these - NTFS C: System_DRV volume, D:Windows7_OS, E:LENOVO and another RAW which is most likely OEM partition. I do not see any folders/files in E:.  Is there any way how I could re-install Win7 or are the partitions containing factory image destroyed because of using Win system image backup? Appreciate any ideas. Thx.
