I have a Lenovo T420.
Hard disk includes 3 partitions- c: regular, d: system_drv (hidden), f:lenovo_recovery (hidden).
System_drv partition i believe includes the installation file of Win 7.
I'd like to replace the old hard disk with a new one, so i believe i need to copy partitions d: and f: to the new hard disk, so it will conatin both Win 7 installation files and lenovo recovery.
I'd be glad for any help how can i solve it.

Thank you for your reply.
How can i make a set of recovery disks from my currny hard drive?
Will it also include the Win 7 installation files?
And how can i then copy these disks to the blank hard disk?

This partitions table looks not standard.
Default table on the systems with win7 preinstalled on the single drive inserted should be as fbelow:
- System_DRV, the drive the letter isn't assigned, hidden
- Windows7_OS, C:
- Lenovo_Recovery, Q:, hidden
Some times System_DRV, after a lot of manipulations, might have the volume S:
These combinations allow to perform the recovery process. Otherwise, with another partitions labels, don't.
It seems there might be the 2nd drive in OP's system. Remove it and perform the clonning process of entire (!) source drive, not the partitions separately.
Do it well, worse becomes itself
