Re: Ideapad Yoga hard disk allocation

2013-04-12, 9:11 AM

Thanks everyone for all the helpful info. Picked up my yoga yesterday, and this sort of support is the exact reason I have gone for Lenovo again :)

 

One question though.. has anyone tried a restore from the recovery usb they created? I thought I'd run through and test it before I started re-sizing partitions, but it fails with the following error message:

 

"Unable to reset your PC. A required drive partition is missing"

 

A quick google reveals this is quite a common problem, but can't find a solution to it. i'm not at a point yet where I need to restore, but its a bit worrying for the future?

 

Andy

The Yoga actually has an empty slot inside so I Installed another Msata 256gig drive. It was alot easier than I thought it was going to be. I used Acronis true image and backed up my primary OS to an external drive. I immediately restored it to the 256gig drive and changed the BIOS to boot off of the 256gig drive. I don't care about that restore fuction now that I have a backup file.

I immediately restored it to the 256gig drive and changed the BIOS to boot off of the 256gig drive.  Everything is working great but I am trying to figure out what will happen if I get rid of all those partition on the 128gig drive.  Am I even using those partitions now or files now to boot up?  Any ideas what will happen if I dump those partitions?

Lenovo's Hotfix didn't work because I've just deleted a partition.. even after I restored it. So, I've just used a tool for resizing/merging partitions (Easeus Partition Master Free Ed. downloaded from CNET).. it did the job really well!
(and I kept a 15GB partition for files)

Re: Ideapad Yoga hard disk allocation

just bought the yoga 13, straight out of the box it asks for a setup and after a few settings I find myself in the windows 8 environment.

Tried the hotfix immediately and the fix fails cause I have changed the basic partition layout it says which is a bit odd since I just opened windows for the first time without first entering the bios... Any suggestions what went wrong?

I just got a brand new, well display model, Yoga 11s from Best Buy.  

 

I get hime and notice that the hard drive is diced up into 7 (7!!) partitions.  Which of these can I combine up to get some much needed space?

 

I've got a C partition of 70.49 GB half full, a D partition with 4 GB half full.  

 

Then I've got five unnamed partitions eating up the rest of the space:

One recovery partition with 1000 MB

One recovery partition with 12.42 GB

One OEM partition with 1000 MB

One EFI System Partition with 260 MB

One primary partition with 30 GB that's hallf full.

 

Are any of these partitions necessary?  Could some be combined/cannabalized for the space?  Any hep would be much appreciated.
