EXPECTED: A white screen menu for OneKey recovery.
SHOWN: the blue menu from Microsoft Windows 10 recovery.
I have chosen "Troubleshoot > Reset This PC > Just Remove My Files and gone through with it. It appears to have reinstalled Windows 10. Now there is a C:\Windows.old folder.
Was that a mistake?
How do I get this new orange laptop to go to the proper partition containing the OneKey recovery so I can go back to factory defaults?
This is Lenovo Case #8006794272.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Just checking, but did you shutdown the Yoga 900 first, before pushing the Novo button? I believe that if you press the button while Windows is running, you will get a different set of menus and actions.
Trying powering down the Yoga 900 completely, and then push the button. That should take you into the Recovery system and enable you to do a fresh install of the factory image of Windows from Lenovo. That will also include Lenovo applications such as Photo Master.

Hope my message finds you well.
i believe your recovery partition is crashed. so you have to deliver your machine to the service center to create a new recovery media for you. Else you can put any windows by your own but should be same original version you had before on your machine ( the preloaded Version ) & it will activate automaticly with the windows key injected into your BIOS, then from windows you can create a recovery media copy from settings.
Best Of Luck
