If you have try Recover Lenovo One Key Rescue after Resizing Partitions and may boot to OneKey Recovery, you shall be able to boot to OneKey Recovery to reinstall to factory default.
But as Steve mentioned in Super User: Lenovo One-Key Recovery Feature broken after resizing partition, you may also follow the [Remove everything and reinstall Windows] in How to refresh, reset, or restore your PC. It’s not free, you need to have a Windows RE Flash Drive and have access to PBR_DRV partition.
In the next few months, I am going to port ZurmoCRM onto QNAP. I might need to test different configuration and need to reinstall QTS several times. Remove the hard disk and use SATA to USB bridge to kill partition takes too much time. Instead, you may SSH to login, then clean QTS partition with dd. or remove with fdisk.
After running a disk check on the visible partition, ClonZilla may create disk images for it but still stops for error in PBR_DRV. It seems I must do a disk check on PRB_DRV. But how can I check a non-visible partition?
Because I am very satisfied with the performance of Seagate Desktop SSHD on my Lenovo ThinkCentre Edge 72z, I decide to upgrade Lenovo C440, too. After cloning with Clonezilla, you need to manually modify the partition type ID to make it work.
If you have the same boot fail problem like me, try to fix them first.
If you have use EaseUs Partition Master to resize your Windows 8 partitions, you might have problem to create Windows recover drive, fail to backup or recover to factory with pre-installed recovery tool.
Because the default partition size is too small for my C drive, I use EaseUs Partition Master to re-size. Then I cannot launch to OneKey Recovery for backup or recovery. I also fail to create a USB recovery drive using [Recovery] in [Control Panel].
It took me several days to figure out what’s going wrong. In short, it’s all related to the partition type which EaseUs Partition Master cannot handle properly. I will show you how to solve these problems.
