Did you recreate the partitions you deleted? sounds like there's not a partition on the drive. when you boot the machine press the F1 key. that will take you to the system bios.. then press F9 .. that will set the bios to the factory default settings.. then press F10 that will save and exit the bios. If you have a partition and its set active..you should be able to procede from there. If you continue to egt the error message.. you need to verify the part5ition is valid and active. formatted would help as well..

Hi all, I'm having a problem with my Lenovo G550 with one recovery key system. I tried to install Linux but i did it wrong and now I can't start Windows. When I put the recovery disc in to my laptop and...


hi if you are using windows vista/7 recovery disk to reinstall OS, then while choosing drive there must be advance option below it..choose it and then delete all the drives and then create new partitions from all the unallocated space..and then choose the drive from newly created partition to reinstall OS..

to backup all imp. data before doing so use UBUNTU LIVE CD..then do the clean install of vista/7

if the above trick doesnt work then download the GPARTED LIVE CD to repartition your HD..
use GPARTED live to boot.
choose the HDD
delete all the parition
create new partition (NTFS)
hit APPLY
shutdown GPARTED LIVE.
install windows vista/7 thorgh reinstall DVD.

Hi All\r\n\r\nReq. to all please provide me confirmation regarding "one key recovery" firstly i must tell you i am using netbook lenovo "s10 series windows 7, now if i format hard disk(C:)...


Hi Nishant,
I saw you post about the One Key Recovery on your S10-3 system and I would like to Help.
You mentioned that you have an S10-3 system and that it has Windows7 on it and that you want to install Windows XP on it.
I guess that can be possible as long as you do not delete / format the partition where the One Key Recovery is located your One Key Recovery can still be utilized once you may need to set the system back to factory defaults, the Partition where the One Key Recovery will sometimes be name Lenovo Recovery Partition and cannot be seen in windows since it is a hidden partition only seen when doing an installation of windows using a retail Windows Installation cd.
Just to add about the OKR or One Key Recovery once you downgrade to XP and you use the One Key Recovery it will restore the system back to factory defaults then windows7 will be the operating system again on your s10-3

Hi nishantsi762,

You can still use the One Key Recovery after formatting your drive C and installing XP. Just make sure that you will not reformat the whole hard drive because One Key Recovery image is in the hidden partition of your hard disk.

Hope it helps,

Thank you for using Fixya.

To create a recovery partition in harddisk


Unfortunately the Recovery partition could not be reacreated manually. But you can recover it by using the Y410 Recovery Disc but that means reinstalling everything and youll end up with windows vista again. You can reinstall XP but do not delete the partition that usually has 10-15GB of space because that is the hidden partition for the recovery. You can call 18774536686. If your computer is out of warranty, it would only cost you 59$ for the recovery disc

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
