it's normal cause you don't have any backup files.
use "factory default recovery disc" option.

I want to create a boot CD to let me restore from a USB disk backup when the hard disk gets corrupted. I don't see how to do this. the Onekey seems to expect the original hard disk to be functional to restore from a USB disk. Is that right?

it is not possible to recovery from usb disk by using okr. when your hdd is gone, due to partition table changes, okr will be useless.

What is the lenovo way to restore after a complete hard disk failure?  I tried EASUS but the OneKey no longer functions after moving all the partitions to a new hard disk.  I can boot the new disk from the EASUS boot MBR.  what is it that makes the OneKey button actually do something?

if you clone your harddisk into the same size of hdd, it should work.

I've gone thru some pain, but this is what worked for me using OKR on  my s10-3t and installing a new SSD. Once I got the OKR Partition on my SSD, and set the partition ID properly (found the info in one of the threads), I could boot to OKR using the OKR button on my s10-3t.  However, when I tried to restore the factory settings, it complained about missing partitions or incorrect format.  I then deleted the first partition, so I only had the OKR Partition and re-tried it.  Luckily it worked, and created the correct boot and C: drive partitions.

 

I just wanted to mention this because, my partitions were not exactly the same since my SSD was a lot smaller than my original HDD.  I had to have only the OKR partition on there.  Of course you have to have a new drive to do this, or wipe your entire HDD.  I'm also hesitant because our models are very different, but I wanted to let people know what worked for me.  

 

Hope this helps someone..

I have not been able to get OKR to work with new disk.

 

I saved the last partition on the old disk (hidden 15gb - half used) to USB with EASEUS

I checked the partition type was the same (type 12)

I changed hard disk.  No partitions on disk.

I booted EASUS boot disk and transferred the USB saved partition to new hard disk, placed it at the end of the disk. checked partition type is still 12

attempted reboot with OKR button;  would not boot.

booted EASEUS boot disk again and created another single partition at start of hard disk.  formatted as NFTS 

attempted rebott with OKR button, would not boot

I noticed neither partition was set active, is this needed for OKR button?

 

Any proceedure changed needed to get OKR to restore factory load?

 

I was able to place factory load with 2 disc repair set saved with OKR earlier.  Very slow.  would like to do it with EASEUS partition transfer.

I am attempting to use easeus to place a OKR image on a blank disk and have the OKR key go to this image to create the factory install.  Easeus is only a means to an end.  I could do well with out easus if there was a simpler way to access OKR from a blank hard disk or SSD.

 

I would also be interested in a boot  CD disk or USB bootable OKR  that would get to the same point that the OKR system presents to restore a user saved image on a USB disk.

 

At the moment I have to wait 2 hours for the 2 disc factory install to finish before I can access the OKR environment.  I would like to do that without the two hour wait to put a system image on a new blank hard disc or SSD.
