After much trouble and hair-pulling I have finally made a solution for repairing the OneKey Recovery Button and partition (think old-school IBM HPA guys and gals)! This utility will allow you to create a bootable USB key, once the key is created just insert it into your ideapad and boot from it (Power-on, press F12 and select USB key). After it boots into DOS just type "setup" and press enter. After the update completes shutdown the system, remove the USB key and enjoy your OneKey Recovery button again
A few notes:
1) For this tool to work correctly you must have the original recovery partition on your drive (can be ghost copy for those that installed an upgrade drive and copied all partitions to their new drive).
2) If you have your recovery partition id set to anything other than "12" please change it back to "12" otherwise the button will not work. You can use many tools to do this, but the most popular (and free) is "PTEDIT32.EXE", just Google it to find a copy.
3) I have also included a tool to delete the OneKey Recovery partition and the HPA data (USE WITH CAUTION!). To delete the OneKey Recovery partition just type "delete" and press enter.
4) I take no responsibility for any data loss or damage that may occur while using this utility.
5) You may pass this utility to anyone that you wish, however you MUST provide it as freeware and not charge a fee of any kind! I don't want anyone profiting in any way from this utility or its use.
Happy computing everyone!
P.S. Please spread the word and post this anywhere that might help others with the OneKey Recovery Button, thanks...
P.P.S If that guy from e-bay is reading this (you know the one that is selling this as a service and not sharing with the poor users) I told you that I would figure it out and post it everywhere for free, so I hope you enjoyed your run while it lasted... However no hard feelings as I always enjoy a good challenge
