Yoga 2 Pro, can I do a clean install of windows OS and install back onekey recovery?

Hello,

I'm facing some little problems that a clean install would definately solve them, but I'm afraid that if I install onekey recovery afterwords, it won't be or can't be 100% integrated with the system. There's this novo key on the side that it brings onekey recovery if i shut my laptop and then press it, would it work later after a clean install of windows OS and reinstalling onekey recovery?

Is there anything that is really useful by Lenovo that I'm going to miss out on, if i do a clean install? Is there any risks at all?

Thank U guys

Hi clouds73,

You can "format" disk C: when clean install Windows 10 (1803) April 2018 Update without problem, but to keep OneKey Recovery functionality it's mandatory DON'T DELETE any original disk partition on SSD.
OneKey Recovery (with Lenovo Windows 8.1 factory image) will be fine if you decide to rollback. It's hidden into "PBR_DRV, 12.99 GB" partition as mentioned in Yoga 2 Pro - what partition to delete for clean install?
