If i were you i would go get a new key board. And you cant change the partitions of a hard drive around. Once they are there, you can delete them or add more but never move them around. Get a new key board. Good luck.

I have installed fresh vista on my lenovo y530. How can I retore to factory settings as I am finding difficulty to boot without a disk?


All Lenovo computers have what we call the One Key Recovery button. The button with an Arched Arrow or the U-Turn symbol.It is found somewhere near the power button. This only works though if the Hard drive was not reimaged or reformatted by user. One Key Recovery is pre-installed in the hidden partion of the HDD, if it's not affected by any issues you can access this by pressing the OKR button.

Here's how you do it:
  1. Turn the computer off
  2. Press the One Key Recovery Button, the button with an Arched Arrow or the U-Turn symbol
  3. It will tell you Windows is loading files...
  4. After a few moments it will give you options like; One Key Recovery, One key Antivirus, and System Setup
  5. Select One Key Recovery
  6. Click on Restore from initial Backup
  7. Click Start
  8. Wait for it to complete
  9. Click OK
  10. Click Done
  11. Click Reboot instead of Shutdown
This step wipes out and re-installs the operating system, drivers and the default programs that came with your computer. In short, sets it back to factory state.

Please click YES to rank. Thank you for choosing 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)?

One key recovery function do not work in my idea center k210 and when i try to undate one key it states that no service partition found..i think it is because i have changed the c drive''s memory from 30...


You are absolutely correct! When you change the partitions size it can affect the recovery partition or if you switch out the hard drive it will also affect your recovery partition. When the recovery partition is considered nonusable the computer will respond exactly as you've stated.

Since your recovery partition is unavailable now you'll need to order recovery CD's from the manufacturer. Call IBM Toll free @ :1-800-426-7378 and ask them to transfer you to someone who can sell you recovery disks. Unfortunately almost every company charges for them and they run about 30 - 40 dollars.

Hope this helps!

One key recovery not working


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
