Ideapad OKR issue after installing Windows 8 as a second operating system


After the installation of Windows 8 as a second operating system on an Idea machine with preloaded OEM Windows 7/Windows XP, OKR does not start anymore.


Affected configurations

The symptom above may occur to the following systems:

All Ideapad series with preloaded Windows 7 or Windows XP



One Key Recovery does not work if partition logic is changed. Installing Windows 8 as a second operating system creates a new partition, thus changing the partition logic. If an upgrade is performed from Windows 7 to Windows 8, partition logic is not changed and One Key Recovery system should work.
