I get an error saying that it cannot find any hard drives. S10-2 following the guide with nlite.
It boots into XP Home Edition Setup and says "Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer."
Are there some SATA drivers or something that need to be put in the image from nlite?

Hi, I have just instaled win7 RC on my S10e, and now, as many of us realized that the recovery to the original set button does not works. I´am shure that the partition whith recovery files on my HD was not formatted and the data is still there.
This partition is hidden and can´t be seen by windows 7. Please are there any way to activate the recovery software directly form that hidden partition? Any clue? I need to restore XP again .... thanks

I'm using Acronis boot disk to restore my image from the DVD's I made.
BUT Acronis won't see the same stupid DVD drive it booted off of, to use the disks. I can only see USB drives and HDD. ARRGH
How can I make it see this drive when browsing for my backup.

i was try factory restore from onekey recovery button, but process not responding about 1 hour and i push the power button to turn off. but my lenovo s10 can't boot after this process. so, i'm running CD Recovery that i made before.
the problem is.. i can't use the onekey recovery button from power off state. thats button just like the button power, turn on the lenovo s10 and run the windows, not Lenovo OneKey Recovery..
After i cancel the factory restore, the hidden partition become E: drive.
How can i turn back to default setting or factory restore and activated the OKR button from off state..??
(sorry with my language)

I came to this forum for help as I am not a computer expert, but am capable of step by step instructions.
Like others (more so me) I am very concerned that if anything goes wrong, the ability to restore my S10e is not reliably there, except for the restore button. Without a back up it scares me. Something more dependable like a Hard disk image on a DVD seems more dependable.?
I have a network at home with a Vista ThinkpadT61 and a Vista Premium HP mediacentre desktop running off a Linksys 160N router. Is there some way I can get the S10e XP plus Acronis and use the burner of the HP desktop to burn an image of the S10e hard drive; OS, drivers, Apps. I can back up the files separately. I also have an 8 GIG Sandisk Extreme USB and 30 GIG old and bulk external drive.
I'm going backpacking for 2 months in SE Asia. It would be cheaper and much quicker to replace the HD if I had an image. I could rent /borrow an external burner and it would be hopefully flawless and automatic even if it takes some time.
I should mention that I tried using the S10e to access the HP burner (sharing feature) over the home network, but I keep getting rejected as not being authorised to do this. Clearly I have not figured out the nuances in user levels and sharing. If I could get this right, I might have the first step behind me. Also any smarter solution with the existing gear I have will be appreciated. ( I'm 63 and retired, so every penny must have worth, my time is cheap!)

you have all things you need to backup...
acronis trueimage version 11 or 2009 (different re-managed menue but does same) ?
8 GB USB Stick .. 30 GB ext. HDD ...
First .. there are 2 ways backup or clone drive ..
... clone drive you need same size of hdd or greater ..
i do this way for the first time ... but fresh factory drive (in my 160GB)
uses preload (big part 145 GB used 8 GB and part recovery 4 GB)
so most is empty space... why copy unused space... could be smaller
so i try to backup the whole factory fresh harddisk...first on external usb-hdd..
resulting the whole HDD as backupfile (Trueimage compressed to the half) uses 7,6 GB
...that backupfile fits on 8GB USB Stick
If you prepared 8 GB flashdisk as trueimage can produce..
... bootable rescue media usb device ...
you can easy boot truimage via usb-stick and with created backup file on ...
you have the smallest recover solution..its all on one stick
no CD or HDD needed...
First use HP USB Storage Format Tool
Download here :
to make USB Device Bootable...
Start Computer where TI is installed...
to make a Rescue Media
Start TI ..click Create Bootable Rescue Media on the Sidebar,
or select Create Bootable Rescue Media from the Tools menu.
Select which components of Acronis programs (Full Version) you want..
you want to place on the bootable media.. ...
select removable device...
written on stick...43.26 MB ... so enough space for backup...
TI create the media...
Good choice at this point...
Check if bootable Device will really boot on S10(e)
...cause some bootable devices will not boot ..
Be sure that S10(e) BIOS is prepared to boot from USB HDD...
if not do this at start press F2 to go in BIOS
set Fn-F7 numpad on tab to Boot ...
with plus + (plus + left on right SHIFT key is active )
move USB via + and - so the result shown like this....
1: USB CD Drive
2: USB HDD
3: HDD WD ....
-----> F10 Save and Exit to save setting
Plug prepared Rescue Media in one USB port...
start S9/10(e)/-2 ...on the screen should appear Acronis is loading after a second ...
when this happen... all things going well... you are ready to backup...
loading is complete when you get this ...:
choose backup will start the Backup Wizard
next> select what you want to back up Disk & partitions
be sure that you check the whole Disk 1 on the upper left side thats important !
next --select where backup will taken place
! Note : When booted with flashdrive it will get letter A: !
i will save for the first try to external drive given name S10Full...
next> will start backup..... depends on which media you save ...used time 10-30 Mins....
backup is now on a stamp sized media that can travel with you
the restore will same vice versa with a few steps (no pics)....
simply plug in and boot TI ... choose restore... locate backup file
My Computer--> Removable Drive A:-->S10Full-->
next-->Restore Disks or Partitions next-->Check Disk1 next-->
No, i do not resize next-->click Disk1 next--->
yes, I want to delete all next-->no next-->next-->proceed

By the way... Easeus To Do Backup will do same way.
the difference is, u
need a CD Drive to boot the rescue media program , todobackup integration with BartPE and
install on a USB-Stick
& minimum a 16GB USB Flashdrive / HDD for the backupfile ...& more time ... but its free...

On the S10-2...
I tried integrating the All Intel Chipset using nLite...it increased the size of the image, so it must have "taken."
But the bootable still doesn't find the hard drive--- the old trick of using an OEM drive disk looks for a
floppy, so that doesn't work, either.
Image info indicates that the i386 directory is already SP3.
Any other ideas to get the hard drive recognized?
