How to create a recovery system disk from the hidden recovery partition?

2010-05-13, 11:18 AM


I just bought a Lenovo IdeaPad with a windows 7 32 bit version. There was no system disk added. I learned that the windows 7 version is hidden in a recovery partition. I now want to create a system disk to save the windows 7 32 bit version just in case and install a windows 7 ultimate 64 bit version on the computer.


Can you tell me what I have to do?


Thank you!

Hi and welcome,

One way is to save a recover set ... with OKR ... or better do this Backup before  ...but no way to get a  pure Windows 7 Install Disc if you mention this  ...  


And Windows 7 64 Bit will not run on Atom based machine.. i.e. S10/S10e/S10-2 ,S12 Intel/Nvidia ...

(and even when, it lacks of memory 2GB (due the intel chipset restrictions) is good for 32 Bit based systems, but not really enough for 64 Bit based systems, so there is no benefit for use a 64bit on a netbook)  

S10-3t W7 64 ?
