Hi, yep this see as my problem too.
And big problem is that i not made clean install because i dont know what partitions i want delere/remove and what not.

Because I not want lost Windows 8 installations on hide partitions and not lost OneKey hiden partitions.

 

So anyone from Lenovo please give some tip how find which partitions go delete without lost preinstalled original Windows 8 installator and without lost OneKey hiden partition.
