Lenovo C/E/K/M/N/V Series :: Did OneKey Recovery Restore V480 To Pre-install Windows?

Oct 16, 2013

I'm having a Lenovo V480 i5-3230M as you know it pre- install with Windows 7 Pro 64Bit & it has license for Windows 8 Pro 64Bit . I think I want to reinstall my computer but the problem now all the recovery set that Lenovo supplies to me is Windows 8 Pro not the Windows 7 Pro. So, if I'm using the One Key button, are they going to restore my computer to Windows 7 Pro or to Windows 8 Pro?

Lenovo B / G Series :: Will OneKey Recovery Delete Other Partitions?

Jun 23, 2014

So. My notebook has an issue related to the screentouch. Lenovo's assistants says that if I have Windows 8 on my notebook. But I updated it to Windows 8.1. Now I need to downgrade to Windows 8 'till they fix my computer. I already have the Windows 8 DVDs, but before I downgrade I'd like to know:
1. I'll be able to use OKR to restore a backup of my current system, with all my software and settings?
2. I've partitioned my HD in order to keep personal stuff (media, data, documents) in D:, instead C:. OKR will erase the content of other partitions? Can I safely use it or D: can be affected?

Lenovo B / G Series :: G550 Partition Management In Presence Of OneKey Recovery System

Jul 27, 2012

I am currently using a G550 2958 Model Laptop, from the Lenvo 3000/Essentials Notebook Series.  This laptop came with a feature called OneKey Recovery, which I have used to create recovery disks for my computer, using 2 DVDs.  My problem is this: I wish to install a Linux operating system on my computer, but Lenovo filled the partition table.  Here is a summary of the partition configuration:
First Partition, Unnamed, Primary, NTFS, 200-300 MB, boot flag, houses Master Boot Record
Second Partition, "C", "C:", and/or "OS Drive" (running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Service Pack 1), Primary, NTFS, approximately 187 GB, contains Windows installation and personal files.
Third Partition, Unnamed, Extended, NTFS, approx. 30 GB, is a container for:
Logical Partition: "Lenovo", Logical, NTFS, approx. 30 GB, lba flag (which I take to mean it's bootable), contatins data and drivers necesarry for operating the OneKey Recovery System in respect to creating images and usage of the NOVO button.
Fourth and final Partition, "LENOVO_PART", Primary, NTFS, 13-17 GB, hidden service partition used for OneKey Recovery.
My question is this: I'm aware of the fact the OneKey Recovery will cease to function if I resize or delete any partitions in that I will not be able to create backup images or recovery disks, but since I have already done so and have no further need of OneKey, will booting the recovery disks automatically restore OneKey functionality after deletion or resizing of recovery partitions?  In essence, will disabling the OneKey system through partition management permanently remove my ability to use recovery disks, or no?

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Z580 / Unable To Create Boot-disc Using OneKey Recovery 7.0

Feb 16, 2014

Where Can I download or order a Boot Disc for my Z580?  It came with Windows 7, and PC World were offering a free upgrade to Windows 8.  

I am currently unable to create a Factory Default Recovery Disc.  There is an error with the Onekey Recovery software in burning onto the DVD / Disc.  I have tried two different DVDs (4.7GB), and have tried a CD (740MB).  And I receive the same error about one fifth of the way through.

The reason I am having to do a factory reset, is because my Wirless Network driver is not working, and the laptop no longer accepts external wireless USB dongles.  I can't get internet even with a wired connection.  It isn't to do with whether the wireless is switched on or not.  I've tried this.

What is Lenovos policy about providing customers with the means to restore their Laptops?  In the past computer manufacturers / suppliers provided all the software and bootdiscs.

Lenovo S440 ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: Install Windows 8 From Recovery Disc In Virtualbox Hangs On Splash Screen

May 13, 2014

when I try to install the Windows 8 copy I got with my Lenovo S440 in a virtual box environment

the installation procedure hangs on the windows splash screen. I never saw a Windows 8 installation

procedure before, so I booted my laptop from the installation media to check if it is corrupted.

This works fine. A loading dot circle is displayed under the logo after a few seconds and than after quiet

a while the lenovo wizard is shown... so it has to be an issue with the virtual box. 

I attached a screenshot to show you where it hangs.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Can't Restore Y500 - Recovery Partition Missing

Mar 5, 2014

I had two of the same Windows 8.1 OS on my Y500 (Cloned from original to SSD). Then Last night I tried to 'refresh without affecting your files' option for my OS on the HDD so I have a fresh OS to go back to incase anything happend. then on the Lenovo screen it said that the E: drive was being refreshed as well so I freaked and turned off the computer. NOw I cant access either of the OS's. What should I do? I did do a back up right before and the back up files are still there in a partition I made in the HDD. I used a USB boot of Puppy LInux to see the files on my HDD but it would not let me transfer it to an External Hard Drive. I will Try to install a better linux and try to transfer the OKR files to another Drive.
-how would I go about restoring the back up files if I were to get them on another drive?

Lenovo E135 11e E/Edge :: Forget To Create Recovery Stick / Is It Possible To Restore Windows 8?

Sep 4, 2013

I recently got an E135 that came with Windows 8 preloaded. I really didnt like the new interface so I installed Windows 7 on it. Unfortunatly I forgot to create a recovery stick using this method. Now I'd like to reset it back to Windows 8 but I have no means of forcing the computer to acces the recovery partition.
Method's I've tried: F11 during startup gives me the option to recover Windows 7 from a USB stick. Which is weird because the original OS was Windows 8Rescue and Recovery  and OneKey both give me the option to back-up but not to restore from the hidden partition.

Info: Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E135 335972G..Disk Managment shows one HDD divided into: 2x recovery partition, 1x EFI system partition and normal parition.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T430s / Clean Windows 8 Install To SSD Or MSATA Using Restore Partition On HDD

Nov 20, 2012

best way to install a *clean* version of Windows 8 to their Thinkpad that came with Windows 8?
I ordered a T430s with low specs and Windows 8 and I dropped in an 8GB DIMM and mSATA drive.  However, the Lenovo implementation of Windows 8 is maddeningly difficult to create backup media (you can't) and the Lenovo "restore" from the HDD partition won't allow you to restore to another drive.  Plus, that kinda defeats my original purpose of a clean install without any bloatware onto a fast, user-installed mSATA or SSD.
I have Windows upgrade media I purchased for my desktop, but that install program says the installation won't work with the Lenovo Product Key specific to my Thinkpad T430s (I'm guessing it's an OEM product key while the install media is an upgrade looking for a previously installed Windows 7?)

Lenovo B / G Series :: G580 OneKey Rescue Won't Start

Dec 29, 2013

My friend has a Lenova G580. She said Windows wouldn't boot and gave it to me to fix.
I confirmed that windows does not boot in normal mode, safe mode, or recovery mode using any of the boot options for Windows. It will either sit at a black screen (it looks like it's almost at the GUI) or reboot if in safe mode before it gets to that point.
So after discussion we decided to whipe the machine using the Lenovo OneKey Rescue system. I hit the Lenovo OneKey button next to the power button.
It spends a couple minutes booting and I get the green grass background that looks like this one for version 7 but it will just sit there for a day without ever loading the the app. No mouse, no windows. Just the brackground image.
What the problem might be for this system? Restoring to factory settings was the last resort and I am alarmed to see this is not working on this ~2 year old system.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y580 With Windows 8 - Fresh Install Of Windows 7

Dec 1, 2012

My Y580 should be arriving shortly. I got it on the Black Friday Special and it comes with Windows 8. I bought a SSD to replace the HDD and I am wanting to downgrade it to a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate or Pro and I have a couple questions:
How to do this for the Y580? I have not been able to locate one.
Also I am assuming I would not want to use the Windows 8 device drivers correct? Do I use the Windows 7 device drivers?
Would use the drivers from the Lenovo site or each devices specific website? I am going to try to save them on a DVD in advance and want to be prepared.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: Install Windows 8 From USB On X1 Carbon

Sep 25, 2014

I am trying to install windows 8 from the 3 disks that came with the X1 Carbon. There is no DVD drive and we have no external disk drive, so I need to create a bootable USB for this. The laptop came with windows 7 on it.
It is easy to use DISKPART to ready the USB as a bootable device, but how to I take the data from the 3 DVDs and put it onto the USB so that it works? The first one only has drivers but the OS install is split onto two disks. I referred to a KB article but it was talking about autorun files that are not present on these DVDs.
The DVDs I have are labeled as

(1) Applications and Drivers Recovery Disk,
(2) OS Recovery Disk Windows 8 Pro [Disk 1 of 2], and (2) OS Recovery Disk Windows 8 Pro [Disk 2 of 2].

Lenovo B / G Series :: G510 And Windows 7 - Can't Install Driver

Apr 26, 2014

I have a problem with driver installation on my G510 notebook with Windows 7. I've installed all drivers, and only two had left: "Unknown Device" and "PCI Simple Communications Device". After installing the Intel Power Management Engine, the "Unknown Device" had disappear (installed successful), but second one is still not installed. VendorID (8086) and DeviceID (8C3A) suggests, that this is Intel Power Management, but this driver is already installed.
I tried to install different versions of this driver (even for Win8), but nothing changed.

Lenovo Y410p P/Y/Z Series :: Clean Install Of Windows 8.1 On SSD?

Feb 13, 2014

I just bought and received a y410p with the hybrid drive. I have a 120gb ssd that I would like to make a fresh install on. Where do I get both the iso and the window's key? My box didn't come with any disks or windows key. I don't really wish to just clone the hdd since there is so much lenovo branded junk included. What are my options? 
Edit: Would I also have to install all of the drivers separately? I've not used windows in some time now. I've been running linux for quite awhile and it picks up most hardware without dealing with drivers.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: IdeaPad Z50-75 - Can't Install Windows 8 - Not Booting From DVD

Dec 24, 2014

I've bought a Lenovo IdeaPad Z50-75 ( with Free DOS ):
Bios Version: A4CN24WW (V 1.03)
I am trying to install Windows 8 but it just doesnt work. not matter if i allow secure boot or disable it. no matter if i choose from the "OS Optimized Defaults : [Win8 64bit]"
I changed the boot priority so that the DVD-Reader is on the highest place (1). Got a working Win8 DVD, also got win7 professional, but i'd rather install Windows 8.
Even though Win7 is okay too if it'll work then.
I don't know what to do other than switching around between all those options. and it doesn't work at all.
Whenever i start the laptop and choose to start with the DVD-Reader it lights up and nothing happens.
