Lenovo U/S Series :: Deleted OEM Partition Lost OKR On S210 Touch
Apr 11, 2014
By mistake during resizing I deleted OEM partiton which stored One Key Recovery and want it back now. I googled a lot and read about setting partition id but since the partition is entirely deleted it doesnt even work after setting partiton id. I have s210 Touch and One kEy Recovery 8..
I bought a Y500 a few months ago and I bought a Samsung 840 Pro 256GB SSD along with it. Mine didn't come with the 16GB mSATA SSD for caching so I decided to replace the original 1TB HDD with a 256GB SSD. I also had a copy of Windows 8 Professional that I bought for my desktop. Since I wasn't using my desktop anymore I decided to move 8 Pro to the Y500. And it wouldn't let me format and reinstall, I'd get an error saying "The product key does not match any of the Windows images available for installation. Enter a different product key."
I cloned my HDD on to an SSD with Acronis True Image Home. Then I stuck the SSD in my laptop and then selected repair my computer after booting into the 8 Pro disc. And from there I selected the option to reset my PC. Then once it reset it became extremely fast and stuff. And from the add features to Windows 8 option I entered the Productkey I got with 8 Pro and it allowed me to upgrade. Then once the 8.1 update came out I updated immediately.
Now for the last few days my laptop has been getting laggy. So I decided to reset it again. And now when I try to it says that the required recovery partition is missing, I don't recall deleting any of the partitions I cloned the drive perfectly and had also been able to reset it once before. Anyway, now my 1TB HDD is inside my PS3 and I'm stuck with a laggy Y500 that takes 20 seconds to boot up on an SSD and I'm trying to figure out a way out of this mess. Is it possible to get recovery discs?. My Y500 is the model that has a single NVIDIA 2GB GT750 and an intel core i7 3632QM.
I was installing Linux and by mistake I wiped out the entire disk inclusing the recovery partition with windows 8 installation stuff !! Do you know if it there is any way to get it back, downlading it from somewhere and installing ? I searched on the Lenovo website but didn't find any clue....
I've recently bought a S210 netbook with MS DOS preinstalled. I tried installing various systems (Windows XP, 7, 8 and 10), but all of them give the "bios is not fully acpi compliant" message and quit installation.
I tried updating the bios, but the only version I could find [URL]... is an .exe file, so I can't flash it from usb.
My ideapad S210 (with Window 8.1/64) can not recognize my usb connected memory stick or a portable DVD player. I have been trying for more than a day searching the web for a solution. All I got are all for window 7 fixes.
I have a brand new IdeaPad S210 (model 20257) with a UK keyboard. Basically, the backslash ('') and hash ('#') keys don't work. I tried switching to US keyboard layout as a test, but they don't work there either. Everything else seems fine.
Is this fixable by updating the drivers or something? Or do I have to return the whole machine as faulty?...
I bought my S210 about 6 months ago. ever since ive bought it, an annoying flashing circle pops up now and then in the botton left corner...its causing the page to change if im reading something on kindle. it opens any tab that is under it...whilst im typing it will open any other program...it keeps causing the cursor to go in to the bottom left corner as well.
I just bought a Lenovo Ideapad S210 a couple of month ago. When I start using the touchscreen everything works for a couple of seconds and then randomly bubbles with about a half inch diameter start popping up, usually in a horizontal fashion across my screen. These bubbles that I am referering to are the visual effect when a finger touches the screen. So far these rogue bubbles seem to spawn whenever I start using the touchscreen, and keep me from controlling my cursor with my track pad, touch screen, or an external mouse once they appear. The only thing that works then is to shutdown the laptop, which is a big annoyance.
I lost the restore partition on the original SSD that my Yoga 13 shipped with. Is there a collection of drivers and whatnot that would allow me to restore it to factory defaults on my own with a fresh windows installation? I have the win8 key from the BIOS but don't want to lose out on all the required drivers if I were to just reinstall windows myself.
I bought an Acer Aspire 5520 few years ago. It has a partition with Windows Vista installed on that. Unfortunately that partition is deleted completely so I can not recover my laptop to its factory setting.
Is there anyway that I can install that original windows Vista again? I looked behind my laptop and there is a label with a product key. Is that useful?
Booted up my 6920 this evening and I don't have a drive D: anymore! I checked the disk management utility and it's showing the drive as an healthy OEM partition, with no drive letter. Right clicking the drive only gives me the Help option for the DMU, so I can't assign a letter or do anything with the drive - even format it!
I don't actually want to format it, of course. I want the drive letter back.
So far, I've tried a Windows System Restore to a checkpoint yesterday (when I last accessed the drive), but that's not sorted it.
I bought an HP-DV6 1045EE, but I didn't like the partition scheme..
This was the way it first was:
C:Local Disk [288gb] D:Recovery [10gb]
C was preloaded with Windows Vista. I shrunk the partition using Vista's Disk Management as much as I could, and shrunk it further to 50gb using Gparted. After doing this, I couldn't boot into Vista anymore. So I restored the image using the recovery manager.
I then created another 50gig partition for Win7, and installed it. All well and good.
Then I created an extended partition out of the remaining space, since all other partitions were primary, and created two logical partitions, 1 unformatted and the other NTFS.
After this, I booted into Vista and saw that my recovery partition had turned to unallocated space, even though I'd made sure not to touch that partition no matter what...
Got a Aspire one 722 from mom-in-law. She didn't use it much. Sticker says I have a 320GB HDD but Properties only show 284 GB. How do I recover the lost HD space?
I discovered the space holds MS Office but I can't access Office without purchasing it which I have no need for so this is just a closet full of stuff I don't want and apparently I can't use the storage space either.
I have a Pavilion G7 2223nr. It came with w7, and free upgrade to W8. Was never able to go to W8.1. Caught something bad everything went south. Had to reload win 7 pro, I had the software pack from MS.
I cannot get the computer to reconize anything doing with the ethernet, or the WiFi.
I tried F11 at bootup, and all I get is Computer is broken error code 0000225.
I have lost my HP partition, so I need to know if HP sells a disk that will give it back to me?
If all else fails I just use my tablet until I buy win8, or 8.1. Or I take it to a repair shop. I have been researching this for 2 days, have downloaded all drivers from HP for my computer, and it still doesn't recognize any device.
How easy is it to increase the RAM in a U330 touch (from the 4Gb supplied)? Is there a plate on the underside which can be unscrewed to reveal the DIMM sockets? Any special tools required? Will the existing module be 1 x 4Gb, with a spare socket to add 4Gb? Or will it be 2 x 2Gb, in which case I have to discard both and replace with 2 x 4Gb?
my brand new lenovo y50 touch. Straight out of the box, everything works beautifully except one major thing: the touch screen doesn't work. I know it is the touch version and settings even calls it "lenovo y50-70 touch" but below that it reads "No pen or touch input available for this display" ...what?? there are also no drivers on lenovo's support page that say anything about touch.
I have Lenovo S10-3T convertible with touch screen. The touch screen worked perfectly with windows 8 pro but after upgrading to windows 8.1, the windows doesn't recognize my touch screen at all and I can't find (pen and touch) option in the control panel. Even in windows system information, I got (No pen or touch input is available for this display). What do I have to do to get my multi-touch screen working again on windows 8.1?
Just upgraded the 24GB msata to a 120 GB msata and I'm having trouble cloning the hard drive over to the ssd with Clonezilla. The plan is to move the OS to the msata ssd and wiping the original hard dirve and using it for back-up and storage. The BIOS is current set to AHCI with Lagency OS support active but trying UEFI first. I've done this before with win 7 systems; but this is my first foray into win 8.1 w/UEFI. The system does recognize and access the 120 GB Crucial M500 msata disk; it just won't mirror the 8, win-8 partitions. I reinstalled the HD and rebooted the system; to ensure I didn't mess something up and everything seems to be working; though on the slow hard drive.
I did boot from the USB drive with Clonzillia on it and used the drive to drive cloning option...
I have bought a S400 Touch laptop 2 months back. Now it is saying my Windows is about to expire and it is asking for an activation key. I Did not get any activation key. How can I get rid of this issue.And also my touch is not working properly. How can I get service regarding this.
