Yoga 910 partition

Just picked up a new 910 this morning and notice there's  25gb D partition on it full of drivers and one application.

Can I delete it? I've copied the drivers to my NAS.

Re: Yoga 910 partition

Hi Drofidnas,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

If you checked on Disk management, it could show this partitions similar to this discussion:

 

In a UEFI/GPT lenovo machine, this is the usual layout of the partitions:

 

1.) WINRE_DRV 1000MB OEM - this is the Windows Recovery Environment - this has it's own interface / it doesn't need the 7th partition to operate
2.) SYSTEM_DRV 260MB System - check this thread

3.) LRS_ESP 1000MB OEM- The third partition is the EFI System partition which is used for data storage for the Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) interface
4.) (blank) 128MB MSR - The fourth partition is the Microsoft Reserved Partitionwhich is also used for data storage for the Globally Unique Identifier (GUID).
5.) Windows8_OS 884.2GB Primary - Windows 8 OS
6.) LENOVO 25GB Primary - this contains the Application and Drivers that are preloaded on the OS (the drivers listed on this folder are also available on the lenovo website)
7.) PBR_DRV 20GB OEM - this is your recovery partition - you will need to press theOne Key Recovery button to activate this partition.

 

 

You may delete the contents of the D drive and it is also advisable to create a recovery backup before any steps as back up. If your machine is equipped with One Key Recovery feature for factory reset then changing the size of the partitions may affect the functionality of this feature. 

 

Hope this help answer your query.

 

Regards
