If you put in a hard drive that already had an OS on it and such, it won't work since the new computer has different parts from the last. You will have to buy Windows 7, or obtain windows through some method of your choice and do a clean install. Sorry buddy.
The lenovo care button was built to restore the computer back to the factory state if in any case you will be experiencing software problem with your computer and you want to restore it from the original state. If this button will not function for no reason then then only person that can help you is the Lenovo repair department. You can send in the computer to lenovo depot repair and have them re-image the harddrive so that the Care button will be reinstalled.
Someone might have messed up your harddrive that is why one key recovery is already gone. Hidden harddrive partition will be erased if you installed new windows or repartiotion the harddrive. If you are going to restore the computer back to factory default state, you need to order the disc, If you still wanted to have the hidden partition back to your computer, you need to contact lenovo and send in the computer to repair department for HD re-imaging.
You say it's not taking anything off. Just what is it you are trying to do? System restore will go back to any of a number of restore points if your computer suddenly has problems. It will not remove any files or data. If you have installed a program and do a restore back to before you installed that program, the files will remain but the program will no longer be seen by Windows. If you want the computer to revert to it's original state, you must do a system recovery or, if this is not an option, you should reinstall Windows.
Seagate troubleshooting Error Code 10, states that drive has failed. (Seagate bought out Maxtor)
Before you resign yourself to everything is lost on this harddrive, how about trying one more thing?
How about putting the harddrive inside in a new external enclosure, and see if it works? I suggest that perhaps the external enclosure it's in, is bad. The harddrive inside is a 3.5 inch harddrive. Same width as used by a desktop computer. It is a Sata harddrive.
Here's an example of a 3.5 inch Sata, external enclosure, http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3901268&CatId=2780 Just pop the external enclosure open that holds it now, take it out, and install it into an external enclosure like the example above. Plug in the USB cable.
Don't know if this applies to your particular Maxtor Personal Storage 3200, but when I went to search for the type of harddrive it uses just now, I ran into thsi, and thought I would pass it along. http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/personal_storage/ps3200-sw)
The best way to restore the computer back to its original state is to just install its original windows with an Install disk. My Restore was only good for one use and I used that up shortly after I got the computer. What ever your system is rather it be Mac or Windows, just reinstall windows and that will work perfectly. Good Luck.
