For Idea laptops preloaded with Windows 8, users can create a USB recovery drive. However, when performing system reset with the USB drive after replacing HDD or deleting original partitions, the system can not make a complete recovery and an error message pops up "Unable to reset your PC. A required drive partition is missing."
All Idea laptops preloaded with Windows 8 and Onekey Recovery 8.0 (OKR version is older than 184.108.40.2069, e.g. 8.0.0.0710).
For Lenovo OneKey Recovery, if the version is older than 220.127.116.119, it will not support recovery from USB recovery drive after you replace HDD with a new one or delete original HDD partitions. Under this situation, if you want to recovery system and install operation system to HDD, you can use Lenovo RDVD. For the information about RDVD, please contact Lenovo local service provider (Click here to find the contact information).
