OneKey Recovery process does not work after replacing the hard drive. - Lenovo 3000 K100

SYMPTOM:

After installing the Lenovo Windows Vista Preload on a Lenovo-approved CRU or FRU replacement hard drive, OneKey Recovery fails to perform the "CREATE ORIGINAL BACKUP" operation successfully. Instead, the operation is halted and OneKey Recovery displays the following error message: "Insufficient space for backup! The backup operation cannot be performed!" OneKey Recovery performs "CREATE ORIGINAL BACKUP" as a one-time backup operation of the preload, which allows the system to be recovered to the original image. If this process does not complete successfully, all OneKey Recovery backup features will be disabled.

AFFECTED CONFIGURATIONS:

The above symptom may occur on the following systems:

2. Turn off Windows System Restore:

(2) Click "Apply", then "OK".

3. Proceed to "CREATE ORIGINAL BACKUP".
