This problem exist because once the 31GB default partition is formatted NTFS, it reduces in size. So, I found this solution.


1. Boot your machine with Ubuntu LiveCD
2. Go to Disk Utility and remove the C partition (31GB) and do not format it. Just RAW partition.
3. Now, Power off your lenovo Y410.
4. Press the NOVO key to start OneKey recovery and follow the prompts

You should get an option to recover sucessfully.

Enjoy

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.
9. Done.

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.

Amitgupta402 hello,

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.

i think you should first install the driver for the one key recovery function which is being supplied with your laptop.

Hi Nayeem, It seems that the Recovery disks are failed.If you have never changed the preinstalled operating system that is provided in the computer, you can recover the computer by reinstalling the OS from the hidden partition which is in the computer.

You can access it using the F10 Wizard while the computer is booting. Please backup important data before you do it.

Welcome to Fixya

Try to restore the computer back to factory state instead of using the RCD. Turn off the computer then push the small button located beside the power button. The screen should show you the One key recovery. Select one key racovery then select restore from initial backup.

Thank you for using Fixya!

My lenovo onekey recovery not working?


Hi All,

I am new to to the community. I recently bought a lenovo G series machine( G550 model #298595Q preloaded with Windows vista and 320 GB HDD) . surprisingly The C: drive contained 254 GB of the total available 284 GB and D: drive had the remaining space. I wanted to inistall linux, I had to partition the C:drive and no where in the lenovo mannual it is warned against the resizing C:)

I used a partition software called "paragon" to resize my C: drive. My system hanged while running the process and after a long wait I had to shutdown my system and after that my OS was not loading.So I decided to recover my vista using one key recovery. I tried the back up I stored in D: drive and in DVD and it is giving an error message that "not enough space in the system" and in the one key recovery menu the target location of the one key recovery is showing to D: drive but my preloaded vista was installed in C: drive and also it is showing the total free space as 298 GB)

Could any one help me to get my vista back.( why the target location of one key recovery is showing to D:)
or is there any way to increase the D: partition from boot setup). Please help me.

and also my warranty is valid , since I touched my C: drive( no where it is warned against that)?
