System Reserverd and Oem partitions

by touvaggeli / June 18, 2015 12:33 PM PDT

I bought a Lenovo G510 with an Samsung HDD 1TB. I replaced the optical bay with the above HDD. At the main disk slot i placed an Samsung SSD 128GB. I installed win7 64bit to the SSD drive. When i open the disk management i see:

Disk 0 (SSD):
1 Partition 1000MB System Reserved
1 Partition 111.69GB (C:)

Disk 1 (HDD):
1 Partition 1001MB Unallocated
1 Partition 929.56 GB Healthy Partition
1 Partition 1000MB OEM partition

What i want to do is when i hit the recovery button on the laptop i want the laptop to recover at the current state. Is this possible?

This area was subject to a rather long discussion and they never fixed it. Also, what good would a recovery to the current state be? It's already there!

I was't preaty clear. My laptop came with a UEFI system for installing win8 64bit. I turned off the UEFI (using the Legacy option) and installed the win7 64bit.
What i want is when i have to recover my laptop to factory default to install win764bit and the laptop drivers not take me back to the UEFI state.

You can try it but from prior discussions only the maker can re-image the drives to get their recovery system working if it's broke.

What I have been doing is to wipe the system clean and use the maker's recovery media (either made by them or ordered) and then seeing if the recovery key/button/system comes back to life.

Sadly this area has been a bit of a hit or miss. Mostly miss. Makers seem less than willing to offer any support when it breaks.

Windows, Linux, others. How to?

Change the date in Windows, now reboot and back to the BIOS and the changes are there.
