Yes, there are two volumes: C:\ and D:\ which I made the latter by myself right after I bought the netbook (actually I asked the Lenovo retailer to do that for me). He then told me the hidden partition is there in C:\. Now that I use PTEDIT32.EXE which is suggested in the forum, there are 3 partitions in its list with the type numbers 7, 27 and 7 respectively.
You know, the OKR functionality is not the same as what you and others described in the forum.

Hi, I have a s10-3t ideapad. When I bought the netbook it came with Windows XP and I downloaded an upgrade to Windows 7. Now I would like to restore it to its factory settings. If I do that will it remove the OS? If not will I have Windows XP or 7? If it does remove the OS, is there any way I can reinstall it? The netbook does not have a disk drive, so would I need to somehow get a copy of windows on a flash drive?
Thanks for the help!

as Factory Settings with OKR says it clears whole Harddrive and set os as your ever first start , when you bought the machine..Create Factory Disc with OKR that needs a optical disc burner .that should be done before upgrade to win7 ...
..could be possible that OKR will not work,in time you if you install Win7 over XP , win7 changed bootcondition , so that OKR didnt work, could happen..

i know if i change volume partition, we can't use OKR.My question is
1. If i use latest version update OKR from support.lenovo, will it work?
2. if i install windows from usb, can i use previous product key (which written at under netbook) to get original windows?
i know it's foolish , but i hope to not pay for my original windows if i can (LOL)
thanks for answer.

What will occur if I'll remove all hidden OKR partititions (I want to clean my HDD from OKR) and further will press hardware 'OKR' button on my S205 ?
In some user's comment of Lenovo S205 review I read it can brick my laptop? Is it true? Please disprove this rumor.

My Lenovo S10 netbook with Win XP:
Using One Key Recovery 7.0 I’m trying to create a Factor default recovery disc but I’m getting this message:
This program cannot find the service partition. This function is currently unavailable.
Can anyone help me?
