Lenovo G50-70 create a recovery media (of recovery partition)

Question: Lenovo G50-70 create a recovery media (of recovery partition)

Hello all, I'm new here. I bought a Lenovo G50-70 at the end of 2014. I want to create a recovery media of my RECOVERY PARTITION. Ok I have Lenovo OneKey Recovery App v8 but with that application I can't create a recovery media of my recovery partition, I can ONLY create a recovery of my current partition (in this case: C: ). I don't want that my current partition has 119 GB. My recovery partition has 15GB, my question is: How can I access there to record it in a USB, DVD or my PC? Thanks in advance.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

T540p, Windows 7 Pro When I run the "create recovery media" tool, I am given the error: "No (sic) enough temporary space in C drive, Create Recovery Media will exit now." I have 89GB free on my 256GB SSD. My Recovery Partition is 16GB. How much free space do I need?

Hello, I've used the recovery media creator to create a USB flash drive recovery media.

If i then use that to restore the Windows 7 installation onto a new hard drive (as SSD) will that drive itself have the recovery media partition on it?

So if I then lose the USB stick could I restore again by holding down zero when powering on?

Or does it recover the Windows partition and nothing more?

Thank you

Answer:Create Recovery Media/Do Factory Resect without Recovery Partition

To reset your PCSwipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, then tap Change PC settings.(If you're using a mouse, point to the top-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, click Settings, then click Change PC settings.)Tap or click Update and recovery, then tap or click Recovery.Under Remove everything and reinstall Windows, tap or click Get started.Follow the instructions on the screen.NoteYou'll be asked to choose whether you want to erase data quickly or thoroughly. If you choose to erase data quickly, some data might be recoverable using special software. If you choose to erase data thoroughly, this will take longer but it makes recovering data less likely.

Hi, I am using a T400, window 7, 32 bits. Yesterday I accidentally clicked on  Start > All Programs > ThinkVantage> Create product recovery media or Create recovery media. I am not sure about which programs I clicked on but it appears an open up window asking me if I want to insert recovery disk, then I click no. It disappeared. It didn't tell me anything( like all the data will be lost and there is no progress box either; it happened very fast like in 5 seconds) and then I find that all my data in hard drive D is gone. I can not see hard drive D anymore in My computer. However I can find the partition titled "recovery partition" with 100% free storage in replace for my hard drive D in the storage management of  My computer and I cannot access it. I am so scared that I don't turn off the laptop 'till now. All the programs are working normal because I installed them on hard drive C but all the data on drive D is lost. Anyone has the same problems? I wonder such a serious software but doesn't have any prior notice to customer that it will cause data loss like this?Thanks.

So I tried to download a copy of drivers for my Yoga 920, then I noticed the link for recovery media. I tried to download it using the steps and the tool. The download went fine and I proceeded to the Select USB tab. It detected my drive and started the process, then the usb suddenly got disconnected and the process failed. I'm using the laptop on a table and I did not touch the usb during operation. I tried to do the process again, but I get an error as seen in the screenshot. Any help? Tips? to get the thing working again Alternatively, if I don't trust the reset option on the laptop, can I just download a Windows 10 ISO with microsoft's tool and use that to reformat the laptop without inputting a key? Will my device still be activated after the process?

Answer:Failed to Create Recovery Media with Lenovo tool

Hi svrndmngjr,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
The Yoga 920 does not have a special factory recovery partition like One Key Recovery like on other machine.
It uses the same Windows reset features just like all other Windows 10 machines as shown in chapter 3 of the users manual here. 
 
A clean installation using a downloaded ISO (same version of Windows that the machine came with) would automatically activate it. OEM product keys are embedded on the systemboard (Win8 and Win10) unlike having a COA sticker that Windows XP and Win7 does. 
 
You can follow the guideline here. With the drivers and applications, if you have additional copies from the D drive then just copy it or download it from here (support website). Other applications are in the Microsoft Store just type Lenovo in the search to download if you need it.
 
Your device would still be activated after the process.
 
Hope this help answer your query.
 
Regards

I recently bought a Satellite Pro L850-1UJ with Windows 8
http://www.toshiba.co.uk/laptops/satellite-pro/l850/satellite-pro-l850-1uj/

I've created a new partition (so i could use it as data room)
i.e. C: the windows system AND Z: my data

after that, i could NOT use the RECOVERY MEDIA CREATOR to create the recovery dvds
BUT the partition still exists and i can see the inside files from windows

IS IT a way to extract the files from the recovery partition or any other clue how i could fix the partition scheme so the RECOVERY MEDIA CREATOR could recognize it


Many thanks for your time...

Answer:Satellite Pro L850-1UJ: How create recovery DVDs from recovery partition

After changing HDD partitions structure it happens that ?Toshiba recovery media creator? cannot find recovery files. These files are marked with special markers that in your case cannot be found anymore.

I?m afraid now is too late to do or change anything. You are not the first one with this problem. We always write here that first step should be recovery media creation and later you can do whatever you want. You can even delete it.

Now you can just order new recovery disc at https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx

Hello!I just bought a Lenovo IdeaPad with a windows 7 32 bit version. There was no system disk added. I learned that the windows 7 version is hidden in a recovery partition. I now want to create a system disk to save the windows 7 32 bit version just in case and install a windows 7 ultimate 64 bit version on the computer. Can you tell me what I have to do? Thank you!

Answer:How to create a recovery system disk from the hidden recovery partition?

Hi and welcome,
One way is to save a recover set ... with OKR ... or better do this Backup before  ...but no way to get a  pure Windows 7 Install Disc if you mention this  ...  
 
And Windows 7 64 Bit will not run on Atom based machine.. i.e. S10/S10e/S10-2 ,S12 Intel/Nvidia ...
(and even when, it lacks of memory 2GB (due the intel chipset restrictions) is good for 32 Bit based systems, but not really enough for 64 Bit based systems, so there is no benefit for use a 64bit on a netbook)  
S10-3t W7 64 ?

I am working on my sisters Toshiba L655d-S5055 notebook. windows 7, 3gb, amd v120 processor, 250gb drive. Started with error msg at boot "encountered a problem communicating with a device at startup......". Couldn't get by this error. took out drive, inserted into usb-enclosure, and tested. numerous sector errors. She has also lost the recovery disks I made for her. I used partition software to scan just the recovery partition, and there are no errors reported there. What I would like to do, is to copy to a flash drive, or make new recovery dvd's from this recovery partition; then I can use the coa from the back of the notebook (if necessary) for full install onto a new hard drive. However, I can't use the toshiba notebook for this; I can only use my desktop pc for the xfer; using the toshiba hard drive as a usb external drive, and the toshiba media creator software will not install onto my desktop pc (doesn't give me a reason). I would prefer to go the dvd-route, but flash drive would be ok, too. Any info is appreciated. thanks.

I bought lenovo thinkpad X230 in January 2013. I made a recovery USB on a 16 GB pendrive. I bought a windows 8 pro upgrade offer as well. But i did not install it at that time and kept it for future use.  About a week ago I installed windwos 8 on my system in dual boot mode making a partition on primary HDD.everything went ok with only problem that my windows 8 did not activate. I was ok with that. But when i tried F11 recovery function, it was not working. So i tried factory reset through recovery USB i created earlier. It opened up and said BOOTMGR missing. Later with some research I realized that i didnt make USB active (bootable) before burning it.(Though this is ridiculous considering, tools provided must have done that. Like when you make windows bootable.) With all this(and me panicking), I tried backing up my data with image i created through R & R tool. After back up, I lost my recovery partition on HDD. And I guess i accidentally deleted System_DRV partition as well.  Though my computer is running fine. I need a bootable media. it would be great if you can provide it. Also if you can restore my comp to factory setting with recovery partition, it would be great.Please help me. Thanks in advance.

Answer:copy recovery partition from pc to recovery media

Hi, xyz_111
 
If the recovery partition is still on your machine and has not been removed/formatted, then you should be able to boot back into that partition to restore your system.
 
To do this, turn on the machine. As it is going through POST (ThinkPad logo) tap Enter repeatedly. Continue doing this until a menu appears. One of the options on this menu should be to Recover Your System. Press the associated key with this action and follow the prompts. See if this allows you to get back to Windows 7.
 
Hope it helps,
Adam

Hi everyone, I know this must sound like a real stupid title, but please bear with me for a moment: Having wiped my R50p clean with the "Access IBM" button, I noticed that I only had a C drive with 20 GB of which much was in use. In Windows XP Disk Manager I saw that there was a whopping 55 GB on a hidden partition that I only had the option of to "remove", not to activate or anything else. Realising that this was the hidden partition with the IBM restore files, I was hesitant to take any action. After doing some research on several forums I found that the recovery part should only take up 20 GB, which corresponded somewhat to the fact that Disk Manager showed 42 GB of 55 GB to be "free" (if only I could use the free space!). In order to access those magnificent 42 free GBs on the 55 GB hidden partition, I first created a ThinkVantage recovery disc (strangely it was only one CD-R) and disabled IBM Predesktop Area in the BIOS. As a result, I proceeded with deleting the 55 GB partition and it became unallocated space, therefore allowing me to make it a new partition and assign a drive letter (in this case D), doing a "quick format (NTFS)" in order to be able to use the space available, and finally giving me the full 55 GB. Since I had preferred to leave the recovery files on the hidden partition, but had no idea how to access the useful other 42 GBs, I followed the abovementioned procedure. Now my question is whether it's possible to recreate another hidden parti... Read more

Answer:?? Restore Recovery Partition with Recovery Disc after deleting Recovery Partition

pvanedan, welcome to the forum, after reading your post several times I think I understand your situation as it is now. The answer is as follows; which you may not like sorry  You have successfully deleted the recovery partition in order to gain more space, that's the good news  The cd you have created is only a boot cd and not a recovery cd, this would be used to boot your ThinkPad and access a recovery backup which is stored on another hard drive, cd/dvds or over network. It alone is not able to recreate the recovery partition which you no longer have, that's the bad news  I would suggest backing up your files regularly and using an appropriate imaging software to backup your installation. Edit: What I don't understand is; why 55GB? The partition should have been around 4GB, maybe it was full of backups??Message Edited by andyP on 07-03-2008 07:30 PM

It's a bad idea to make one. You have limited access to the partition, and it is useless if the drive fails. Just use your original CD or make an image of the drive on an external.

Answer:How to create a recovery partition?

Hello

1.) On Toshiba notebooks there is no recovery partition. They only have an image of factory settings stored on second partition in HDDrecovery folder. This recovery procedure can be started in advanced boot menu of Windows (F8) and if you select ?Repair my Computer?.

2.) It?s not possible to create such a partition and then you have to press only one single key to start this. I think it?s pretty complicated to create such a recovery partition.

3.) You can create your own image using a backup program like Acronis TrueImage. Save this backup on the second partition or external HDD. You can restore this image using the Acronis boot disk. It?s very easy and I do this on my notebook too.

There are a couple of items you would have to do. First create a new partition, format it with FAT32 and make it bootable using DOS or The version that comes with Ghost. Create your image using Ghost or Acronis and save it there. You will have to install the imaging program on the partition as well put it in a folder called Ghost. Then you will need to create an AUTOEXEC.BAT file to load Ghost on start up saved in the same folder. I would make the parition bigger this way you can keep a few different images stored if you want. Finally you will need to alter you Boot.ini file. Create a copy and save it somewhere easy to remember first in case you make a mistake and need to restore the old one.

The boot.ini should look like this:

[boot loader]
timeout=5
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\Ghost="Recovery Partition"

You can change how long the wait in seconds is by altering the timeout value.

Thank you for reading! Skip to the bold part below if this is TLDR. I've tried searching around for answers, but I'm afraid that I'm just not familiar enough with what I'm hoping to solve to even know if I'm searching in the right place. So again, thanks for your help in advance!

I recently picked up an Asus laptop, a SDD to replace the the laptop's HDD, and a HDD caddy to hold the HDD in place of the CD/DVD drive. After a fresh Win 8.1 install on the SDD, I made system images of both the SDD and the HDD with the Win 8 OEM install (both stored on external drive). I also created a USB recovery drive and then formatted the HDD.

Fast forward a few weeks... It's last Friday. I'm about to leave for a business trip. I boot up my laptop and a screen comes up telling me to "reboot and select proper boot device". I pull the SDD out, hook it up to my desktop, and see that the drive shows up, but it's blank. A little googling turned up a few reviews from other people with the same issue. On rare occasion, it will wipe itself. Using the USB recovery drive and the Win 8.1 system image, I got things up and running again.

Now for my question, instead of constantly carrying around the 2 USB drives holding the recovery and system image, can I create a recovery partition on my HDD that I can boot too if my SDD wipes again? (Could I copy or clone my Recovery USB to a partition on my HDD?) Then I could just keep the SSD system image on the HDD in case I need to restore it, right?

Answer:How do I create a recovery partition on a 2nd HDD

You can always create a System Image Backup on a second internal drive, as long as it is not part of the backup. You could also copy the current WindowsImageBackup folder to the internal drive for re-imaging the SSD.

The term "Image" may apply to many different type of files. For instance, a Windows 8 OEM system image may be a .wim file used to reset the system to factory conditions. The type of file would certainly determine what utility was necessary to recover that image.

A recovery drive will normally have the Factory image of Windows 8, unless you have replaced the install.wim with a new one. But all this does get confusing if the exact type of image being referred to is not known.

Be aware, when you create a Recovery Drive, the entire drive can be used for nothing else. That is why Flash drives are normally used.

I have a computer with the F10 option when I first turn on the computer. The hard drive failed so I have replaced it and installed windows 7. I am wondering if I can create a recovery partition when I turn on the computer and use the F10 option to restore back to when I first installed windows 7?

Answer:Create F10 Recovery Partition

I don't think you can create a partition that will do that by pressing f10, but you can create a system image of your system that is activated and will restore your PC to exactly the way it is when you create the image. You can burn it to DVD, a separate partition or a USB stick. This would be my suggestion to you. Get your computer exactly the way you want it with all your basic and primary apps installed and everything activated. Then make a system recovery image and a recovery disk. To do this go to Control Panel>System and Recovery>Backup and Restore and look on the left hand side of the Windows and you will see both options. Click create a system image and tell Windows where to save your image and it will make an exact copy of your partition. Then it will ask you to make a recovery disk. Follow the instructions on doing that and you will have a backup of your system at it's bare minimum.

right-click the Windows Start screen button and select Command Prompt (Admin)

Hello All,
I have seen this thread: request: HP Recovery partition/dvd of Windows 7. I want to make a recovery partition on a clean install of windows 7. This is what I did:
1. Download HP Recovery Manager for Windows Vista
2. Install it.
3. Go to C:\Windows\SMINST\RAMDSK\Windows\SYSTEM32
4. Run Shrink.exe

Before when I ran it it said it couldn't create a recovery partition. To run it asks me to click next when it says "This installer will create a recovery partition and an initial restore point" and I did. But now when I run it as administrator it says its verifying the file system and it says it is preparing the harddrive for recovery partition creation and gives me an error : "Resizing of the windows partition failed or the disk is not recognized!The recovery partition cannot be created.you may try to delete files i the Windows partition, defragment the drive and/opr use a 3rd party tool to reduce the windows partition in size.". I tried everything.

On the screen it gives me the error it said it will restart the PC in a few seconds and it counts down and it shows click finish to restart. When I wait or click finish it just closes and does not restart my computer.

I reinstalled it lots of times.

In Shrink.exe.log it says this:

Answer:Create HP Recovery Partition

Why do you want a Recovery partition on the same HD, which can fail and lose the ability to recover.

A much better plan is to save a Win7 backup image externally so you can reimage with the Win7 boot CD/DVD in 20 minutes to the same or a replacement HD.

I would also consider with HP getting a far superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

Answer:Create a Recovery Partition

You have a number of misunderstandings going on here. Firstly, all Win8.1 installations have a hidden recovery partition on the boot drive. You need a separate recovery disk/usb stick in case you get to the point where you cannot boot from the main drive. Best approach is to make a recovery disk/stick and choose to copy the recovery partition too, but do not delete it from your PC when it offers.The recovery drive will be bootable (that's the point) so if you managed to get it on an internal partition you would have to make a dual boot configuration. This would be an odd way of doing things and against design. I recommend against such a strange approach.

Answer:How to create recovery partition??????

Hello, Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum. Welcome! I am afraid you cannot create recovery partitions if they are deleted. End users cannot do it. If the computer originally came with Windows preinstalled by HP (e.g. OEM Windows), then you can purchase recovery media from HP. They are usually cheap. You can use it to restore your computer to factory default condition. Here is how to do it:>> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/bph07143>> http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-phone-assist.html And once you receive the recovery media [DVDs or USB pen drive], here is how to use it to restore back to factory/Windows default condition:>> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03489643>> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PC3sUc3lr3E  If the computer originally did not come with Windows preinstalled, but you installed it on your own after that, then you need to use Windows installation media to reinstall Windows. You can get Windows installation ISO images from Microsoft web site and then burn it on a DVD >> https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows8>> http://www.howtogeek.com/80094/how-to-burn-an-iso-image-in-windows-7/  Please, let me know if this helps and works for you.

So basically if anything goes wrong with my OS I want to be able to throw the DVD in and boot to it, have it restore the C: partition.

So what software would I use to do this?
 

Answer:Create a bootable Partition recovery DVD

Acronis True Image will let you "image" your entire drive or partition to CD/DVD media and restore it at a later time. The backup set itself will not be bootable, but True Image will create a bootable CD version of itself that you can use to run True Image natively (meaning you boot from that CD, load the application, remove that CD and then put in the backup CDs/DVDs and do the restoration, or use True Image to create new backup sets).

There's nothing on the market today that will automagically create a bootable backup recovery set; the only one product that ever did that automagically was Powerquest Drive Image. It would put the actual application on the first CD (it didn't burn DVDs when it came out and disappeared before DVD burners/media even became popular) and you could use that backup set to restore.

The only difference with True Image is you need the TI recovery CD + your backup set, hardly a big problem. You can burn off multiple copies of the recovery CD as required, one for each set if necessary.

Good luck...

ps
It's possible to create a recovery set using Norton Ghost and then you can create a new CD and put the ghost.exe executable on the CD, but you'd still be required to do other steps to make that CD bootable in the first place so you could then access the ghost.exe file to run it. A bit more hassle than most people care to bother with, I believe. But it's possible... and you can use other imaging tools to do similar tas... Read more

Hi Guys,

Those discs though are not bootable and (I read) that you just use them and when you restart the system goes through the recovery wizard. Unfortunately, it didn't work for me (at least with the CD my friend sent me).

Notice I said recovery partition on my hard drive-- not a recovery drive (e.g., on a USB flash drive)..
QUESTION:
If you upgraded to Windows 10 after your desktop arrived (with Win 8.1 factory installed), am I correct to assume the recovery partition you create after the Win 10 upgrade will unfortunately be for Windows 8.1? Ugh!!
The recovery partition I created is closer to 200 MB rather than a Windows 10 recovery partition which apparently consumes about 450 MB. (A Win 8.1 recovery partition is apparently about 200 MB.)
Your thoughts?
Footnote:
Assuming my conclusion is correct -- always a scary proposition at my age -- does anyone know of a recovery tool that will create either a Win 10 recovery partition or a Win 10 recovery USB flash drive from a desktop/laptop which has been u[graded to Windows 10 from the factory software install of Windows 8.1?

Answer:Can I create a recovery partition for Windows 10 after I upgraded from Win 8.1?

When you upgrade Windows 8.1 to 10, Windows 10 will create a recovery partition if your system reserved partition (MBR disk) or Recovery Partition doesn't have enough disk space. As you know, Windows can only shrink a partition from the right side, so the 450 MB recovery partition is new created, which should not be deleted if you want to use recovery options. Windows 10 also allows you to create Windows 10 recovery disk use a USB drive. when you create a recovery usb disk, it will give you an option to delete the 450MB recovery partition.

I finally broke down and bought a modern laptop Asus A55A (K55A) and installed Ubuntu 12.04 in a dual boot situation. With the nefarious secureboot and other such nonsense Windows 8 install met with an untimely demise. However, I have the files left on the recovery partition (copied to my 16gb usb) and need to make an install disk. My only issue is that I can't find a way to do it in Ubuntu as all the tutorials I find assume that Windows is installed. Is there a way to make a bootable Windows 8 install usb or iso from the files on the recovery partition-without using Windows to make it? I would love to re-install Windows 8 and then setup a stale dual boot.

Answer:Create Windows 8 USB from Recovery Partition files

Interesting, I have never tried that.

Can you post a screenie of the recov partition contents that you already copied to usb?

You might be able to make the stick bootable with grub.

Ok, here's what I want to do.

If I was to build a new pc from scratch and install windows 7 home premium, how would I go about creating a bootable hidden recovery partition on the hard drive, so I could reformat it back to these settings at any point if needed?

(like the proper manufacturers do themselves, normally loaded by pressing one of the F keys)

Thanks for your help.

Answer:Easiest way to create a hidden recovery partition?

Ah yes, my motherboard in particular lets you create one of those. Quite a useful feature, that I don't really use.

What you can do is store a partition containing a backup, and restore from that when the time is right, even though you will need a optical disk to begin the restore process using the backup program. You won't be able to get something like one of the F keys when your computer starts up like most manufacturers do, but you might be able to give it the option when choosing between boot choices when your computer starts.

How to create custom recovery partition - MSFN Forum


Quote:




You won't be able to get it to start by hitting F keys, but you can modify your boot loader to boot into a hidden recovery partition.

I've used grub for this in the past. Have a "System Recovery" option in the list and set the timer to 1 or 2 seconds. "System Recovery" boots into a scripted DOS or WINPE partition which has at least a couple of prompts to back out (incase you boot into it by accident) and eventually restores the system partition back to the original image.

I have used 3rd party tools to do the imaging myself, but you could easily use ImageX if using WinPE.

I've only used it for other people's computers, so I can easily instruct them on how to restore it back to a working image and saves me from having to look at the machine myself. Saves them playing around with boot options trying to boot from a CD/USB as well.

I have been fixing PCs for friends and family for years, some of them are really good at screwing up an OS a only couple months after i install a fresh copy of xp or 7. i would like to be able to create a restore method simple for them to use to reset there machine back to my initial installed state. was thinking something similar to newer PCs F11 restore method or something i could add to a bootloader in 7 or xp making it a "dualboot" with just the OS and the recovery.

Answer:create a bootable recovery partition to restore a pc. like oem's F11

Since you'd be loading a backup image into a Primary partition created for this purpose, it can be reimaged using F8 System Recovery Options.

However this is not optimal because if you're making your own backup image then it can more easily be saved externally so it's also available in case of HD failure - or you can do both.

Is it possible to create a recovery partition or image on a PC, which could recover the PC using a Fn key during boot up ?

I have a PC with a recovery partition which is for vista, which is now obsolete now Imhave moved up to Windows 10 via Windows 7.... never want to recover to vista...

would love over to create my own recovery partition, where pressing e.g. Fn11 during startup invokes the recovery process.....maybe this is too difficult...there is a program called AOMEI OneKey Recovery which promises to do such, or so it looks...

Answer:create recovery partition with restore option with Fn key

Acronis True Image 2016 does this. You enable Startup Recovery Manager and you can hit F11 during the boot process to recover a disc image. Adds about 30 sec to boot process before it defaults to OS startup.

Yesterday i have upgraded my HP Envy 15-201TX Laptop from W8.1 to W10. As this is the genuine version of Windows which is only available for 1 Year so I wanted to have a Recovery Disk/Partition. So i deleted the old Recovery Partition(:D) which contained W8.1 given by HP and tried to create a Recovery Partition by myself using Windows Recovery Tool but i'm not able to do it, an error appears everytime i try do it "A Problem occurred while creating the Recovery Drive."
Steps are as follows: Control Panel > Recovery > Create a Recovery Drive

When it comes up does it give you the option to do it. You will need some blank DVD's. Or the program may be on the programs menu, (Start/Programs) called something like make recovery media or such. Just follow instructions when it's running.

Acer products that ship with Windows have a recovery partition built into the harddrive with software that will allow you to initiate a recovery from within Windows as well as create a USB recovery incase something happens.  This is the most important tool you'll have to help you with your PC moving forward. We can't stress enough how important it is to make your recovery media as it will be invaluable when you need it the most and can save time and money having to order a set from your local Acer support team.
 
This is espectially true  with Windows 10, we have seen many users attempt to use the Microsoft Media Creation Tool and do a clean install of Windows 10. Unfortunately, this does not allow for your current Windows Key to be ugpraded to support Windows 10. Users will be instructed to restore their system, perform updates and let Windows upgrade to Windows 10 accordingly. If you don't have your recovery media, you will need to contact your local support team to inquire about the availability and pricing for new media and then wait for it to be shipped.
 
We do have documentation online, which I'll link below, detailing the steps of how to initiate a recovery from the HDD, how to create backup media (USB or DVD depending on the system) and how to use that backup media if and when you need it.

Try to use TDK or Verbatim DVD-R. I have used these empty discs to create recovery discs on several different Toshiba notebooks and every time everything went well.

It sound crazy but you can have such problems using some certain discs.

Hi, two days ago I got my Lenovo Thinkpad T61 with Vista Business. I decided to downgrade to Win XP, so I found out, that I need to create a recovery media. I looked to Start > Programs > Thinkvantage, but there was no such option as create recovery media. So I was googling and I figured out that I didn't have installed Rescue and Recovery software. I downloaded (English) Rescue and Recovery 4.21 for Windows Vista from Lenovo webpage and installed it. Then I went again to Start > Programs > Thinkvantage and there was the option Create Recovery media. I clicked there, but there was only option to create Rescue media. Here is the screenshot :http://img38.imageshack.us/img38/4570/97770442.jpg Also I was trying to find if I have that hidden partition. In windows I found some 513MB partition, but there was 100% free space.http://img27.imageshack.us/img27/4834/20885840.jpgIn linux I found only one partition, where is installed windows. Is there any way that I don't have this hidden partition, so I cannot create recovery media, or where is the problem? Thanks in advance. 

Answer:Cannot create recovery media on T61

 Did you buy the T61 new or second hand? the lack of 'create recovery media feature' is due to the fact that the Vista OS you got is aftermarket version and not Lenovo OEM version... if you really want the OS recovery, you need to call Lenovo and they will send you out the recovery media for a service and delivery charge.

I just received my new B50-45 and am new to this forum.  Hope someone can help me.   The laptop has Windows 7 Pro preloaded, and included in the shipping box, had 4 Windows 8.1 recovery disks. I'd like to know how to create some Windows 7 Pro recovery disks, in case the hard drive fails sometime in the future.  I don't plan on "upgrading" to windows 8 or 10 in the near future.   I opened the onekey application- but it didn't give me an option to create recovery disks.  This model doesn't have an optical drive, so I assume I'll need to create some ISO disk images and use another computer to burn them? Can someone instruct me how to do this?   I called in for techincal support and they said they couldn't mail me windows 7 recovery disks, and advised me to check with the smart folks here on this forum. Many thanks in advance!! Mr. Craig in RTC, NC

Answer:How can I create recovery media for my B50?

hi MrCraig,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Ideally, you will need to follow this guide on how to create a recovery media for Windows 7.
 
If that's not applicable then you can try these options to backup your Windows 7 Pro OS:
 
Option 1:
Follow this guide on how to create a system image backup (you need to use an external drive to save your files)
 
To restore the backup In case of a hard drive failure, you will need to boot from the system recovery options via a system repair disc or a Win7 ISO.
 
 
How to Boot to the System Recovery Options in Windows 7
How to Create a Windows 7 System Repair Disc
How to Do a System Image Recovery in Windows 7
 
Option 2:
Use a third party tool to create a full system image backup
 
In this example, we'll use Macrium Reflect Free:
 
To create the backup image:
Creating a backup image of your computer, drive or partitions (it's ideal that you save the backup on an external drive).
 
To restore the backup:
Create a Windows PE Rescue Environment
Rescue a system with the Windows PE environment
 
 
Let me know if this works for you.
