Question about Lenovo 3000 Y410 Notebook
I format my system first time after one month of purching . when i try for one key recovery,it show massage that i have changed default setting of drives.while i never did such thing.
This problem exist because once the 31GB default partition is formatted NTFS, it reduces in size. So, I found this solution.

I got the same problem and I try the following and it works for me.
WARNING: YOU NEED TO BACK UP YOU DATA BEFORE YOU PROCEED.
1. Remove the HDD from the laptop.
2. Add as 2nd Hard disk in another PC.
3. In that PC, go to "Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management"
4. Then Choose "Disk Management"
5. Under Lenovo HDD. KEEP THE RECOVER PARTITION (DO NOT DELETE IT) and THEN delete all other partitions.
6. Do not reformat the deleted unallocated partition. Just leave as it is.
7. Shut down the PC, remove the HDD. Install it back in the laptop.
8. Turn on the laptop with one key recovery. Now you should see Lenovo will ask if you want to rebuild the partition C. Just yes and follow the screen instruction.

In Lenovo 3000 Y410, be sure not to shrink ur drive, otherwise the One Key Recovery wont work. . . I u shrink ur drive, be sure to back-up all ur files & documents. Reboot ur system using a Windows XP, and remove all the active partitions (e.g. D:)

Before applying NOVO button for key recovery, go to BIOS setting, from Exit -> choose default settings, from Advanced Tab -> choose AHCI (option). Make sure the partition is as given by default for C drive. If it is changed just make it more than 20 GB at least.

This is sometimes caused by the Vista installation, conflicting with the Lenovo applications.
I would suggest first to run an update on the LEnovo applications using the Lenovo Update app.
After all updates are done, try again.
If that does not work, while the computer boots, before Vista loads, keep pressing F8, until you get a menu.
There, you should have a "Repair Your Computer" option.
