Lenovo G580 - WIndows 8 - Resizing OS partition & problems with system recovery

Hello Everybody,
Just bought a Lenovo G580 notebook with pre installed Windows 8 (500gb harddisk, 4 gb RAM, Intel B960).I have been using Easeus partition manager with Windows 7 & its been working very well.So I wanted to partition my new HDD with it.Upon creating the a new 100gb partition (most importantly from OS partition that was about 428 gb) a very strange thing happened.The Refresh/Reset functions of WIndows 8 stopped working saying required recovery files are missing, also Lenovo One Key recovery program does not work with the message that required service partition is currently unavailable.At the same time, apparently  partition called Windows recovery  (1000 mb, hidden) still exists.One more peculiar thing I noticed & that is there is a new 1mb unallocated partition before the Windows recovery partition.While partitioning I did not receive any message about deleting of any data.One last piece of information (not sure if relevant) is before doing partition I had created a system image that I am unable to restore, Windows 8 repair function recognises the image bit is unable to restore it.
Any ideas how to restore the System Recovery functions or how to restore the system image.

Hi petrmichal,

  • Lenovo S205 & Windows 7 64bit. Problems with graphics, please help

    I recently bought a Lenovo s205:
    AMD E-350
    It came with 1GB but I upgraded it to 4Gb RAM (1333 running at 1066)
    Windows 7 64 Ultimate.
    I have tried also Windows 7 32 (Professional, ultimate) and all versions give me the same problem, I will explain here:
    I have tried in AHCI mode and IDE mode from the bios and done fresh installs of Windows. Still the same.
    After installing all the drivers, I get randomly in different programs "black" or sometimes "white" menus. Whenever I set the cursor on the menu (White or black part), the letters start showing up.
    On Firefox for example, it happened where you write the address (Ex: www..) And when searching images too.
    I have tried the original drivers that the Lenovo's website has for the S205 and the latest from Ati/AMD and nothing solves the problem.
    What can this be? Faulty ram? Faulty OS? Problem with the graphic card drivers?
    Please help, it is so frustrating. 
    Thank you so much. 

    Thank you very much for your help. 
    I will try capturing some screenshots if that helps.
    I can discard the problem with the ram at the moment. I have tried a new set of ram (two 2gb modules = 4gb in total). The problem persists, even when they are tried individually. I also tried the original ram module the Lenovo came with (1module of 1gb), alone. Problem persists too.
    However, I do not have a problem trying the VGA output. Will this help too? As I do not have any screen with HDMI at the moment. 
    What I will do too, is to try a Windows 7 from another disc, a Home version 32 bit. I hope this can get the problem fixed.
    The main issue is that I bought this computer from Germany (From a store on eBay) and came with DOS. I will have to return it to the seller, I assume, if the rest fails to show any improvements.
    Thank you for your reply and any more suggestions are welcome.

  • Problem with system recovery for a new hard drive in my Pavilion p6210y Windows 7 Premium 64bit

       I decided to swap out  my hard drive when my computer would fail to start up or crash right after starting. Diagnostic tool at startup said the hard drive was faulty and other times I would get BIOHD-1 and BIOHD-2 errors. I replaced the old WD Caviar Blue 640GB with a new Caviar Green 1TB. I ordered and received from HP a system recovery disc set which included five discs labeled:
    Use This First! System Recovery,
    System Recovery 1:1,
    SYstem Recovery 1:3,
    System Recovery 2:3, and
    System Recovery 3:3.
       After putting in the new hard drive I used the "Use This First!" disc and everything seemed to be going fine. The scene showed "Loading Windows" or something like that. After about 10 minutes the CD drive opened and the Monitor showed three images: a big green check mark which I assume meant everything was good up to that point; a graphic showing the removal of the first disc; and a graphic showing three discs to be put in. Wondering whether to put in the System Recovery 1:1 disc or the System Recovery 1:3 disc, I noticed that the drive bay closed with the "Use This First" disc still in. I managed to get the Drive to open after pressing the open button quite a few times. I closed it with the 1:3 disc and nothing happened (no light showing activity in the DVD drive). After a minute or so I managed to get the drive open again after quite a few times pressing the open button. I put in the 1:1 disc and still nothing. At this point I could only open the drive bay with a paper clip in the release hole. With the computer unresponsive and the monitor still showing the same as when the first disc came out, I decided to turn it off with the "Use this First!" disc in the drive hoping to start from the beginning again. Now the directions that came with the HP System Recovery discs state:
       CAUTION: Do not turn off the computer, or use the keyboard or mouse during this time. Doing so will interrupt or damage the software installation.
       Now when I turn the power on I get either:
     the HP blue screen with the green hand, (F11=system recovery), (F9=Diagnostics), (F10=Setup) and (ESC=Boot Menu). pressing esc, F9, F10 or F11 does nothing.
    Or the HP blue screen appears and then almost immediately goes to the black screen with " Reboot and select proper boot device or insert Boot media in select Boot device and press a key". I've gotten this scene while trying almost every System Recovery disc in the drive. Hitting a key does nothing other than repeating the same message.
    Once I got a "The file is corrupt. The file header checksum does not match the computer checksum" error. That appeared only once in about 30 try's.
       The open DVD drive button works sometimes and not other times. I can't seem to figure out a pattern for when it will work.
       I don't know whether I might have accidentally moved the mouse or hit the keyboard during the first attempt. Can I  do something to the new hard drive to get it back to a state where it can start from the beginning again? Might it be a problem other than the old hard drive. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Satellite L505D-S5983
    Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit
    Yes, of course! See the link to your model's spec above.
    My apologies. The previous link went to a spec for the Satellite A505-S6960 (which came with Windows Vista installed). I had too many spec pages open at the same time and got them mixed. 
    So, are you telling me that I won't get this one to work?(the BPKT)
    No. But you may face the problems that I outlined in this message.

  • Problems with sytem recovery on Lenovo G500s

    Hello, I am new to Lenovo Community.
    I have purchased Lenovo G500s just two months ago. Now I am having problem with System Restore. The system is not creating any system restore on its own and when I go to System Protection under System Properties, an error message pops up. Also software like Revo Uninstaller is not able to create a restore point before uninstalling a software (it just stops responding saying creating a restore point).
    I am also attaching two screenshots showing the error messages.
    Link to picture

    Please help me get this fixed as I believe System Restore is an important feature and I would be making sure that I have restore points made in case I need to restore in future.

    Hi Debdutta,
    Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
    I’m sorry to hear that automatically “System Restore” points are not creating in your G500s Laptop, below are the steps to check and resolve the issue and make sure you un-install any third party Tuning software.
    Click on Win+R key together to open Run Window.
    Now type in services.msc in the search programs and files and hit enter.
    Now you need to check for the “volume shadow copy” service present in the services windows.
    After selecting the “volume shadow copy” service you need to right click on the service and select properties and make the startup type as automatic and start the service.
    Click ok, restart the computer and check for the issue.
    Hope this helps!!!
    Do post us back if the issue still persists.
    Best Regards
    Shiva Kumar

  • Satellite A500-1C0 - Windows has detected a problem with HDD

    Good day,
    Notebook shows me that Windows has detected a problem with HDD. The notebook is slow and the chops. And when you turn it shows me Smart Failure predicted on hard disk 1. Toshiba MK 5055GSX - (S2). Can you help me? (Im CZ)

    Hi Konyga,
    If you already get a warning about internal HDD before Windows starts I would recommend exchanging it and backup all data as fast as possible.
    Is your notebook still under warranty?
    If yes you can get a new HDD from an authorized service provider. This would be for free because its covered by warranty. Everything what you have to do is contacting an ASP.

    Have you encountered problems with System Update 3.14.0019 after installation SP2 for Windows Vista?

  • Problem with Rescue & Recovery

    I have a X61 running on Vista Business. I am facing 2 problems with Rescue & Recovery:
    1. RR tries to run a backup on every bootup even when I schedule it to run Monthly or Never. The program appears not to register the changes to the backup schedule. I upgraded to the latest version of RR, but it didn't help. (Note: Another user posted about the same problem (http://forums.lenovo.com/lnv/board/message?board.id=Special_Interest_Utilities&thread.id=604) some months back, but his problem hasn't been solved.)
    2. Whenever RR tries to perform a backup, I get this error message: "R2R.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close." I downloaded the patch KB917422 but got the following message when I ran the installation pgm: "Could not find any previously installed compliant products on the machine for installing the product."
    Will greatly appreciate any advice!

    First you should try to fix the bad sectors, you can use the following command:
    chkdsk c: /f /r

  • Help with system recovery

    Dear all, I have a HP G71-343 laptop running Windows 7 64 bit. The hard drive was broken. I bought a new hard drive and boot from DVD rom to recover system using recovery DVD disk. However, before the installation start, I got a message said:
    "recoverymgr.exe application error. The instruction at OX400e764f referenced memory at OX00000000. The memory could not be read. Click OK to terminate the program.. "
    I tried different new hard drive but always got the same message and the installtion failed. Does anyone know what is the message mean and how to solve this problem? Thanks a lot.
    This question was solved.
    View Solution.

    Assuming this is just a problem with the recovery media, here's an alternative option you could try.
    Before trying the following, make sure you can still read the 25 Character Product Activation key on your Windows COA label ( 5 blocks of 5 alpha/numeric sets ).
    An example of a COA Label can be seen Here.
    You can create a Windows 7 installation disc yourself using another PC - just download the correct Disc Image ( this must be the same version that originally came with your notebook - this is listed as Windows 7 Home Premium ) from the link below and use an application such as ImgBurn to burn the ISO correctly to a blank DVD - a guide on using ImgBurn to write an ISO to a disc is Here.  These Images are clean and from a well-respected source - Digital River.
    Windows 7 Images.
    Use the disc to perform the installation, enter the Windows activation key found on the COA Label when requested and when the installation has completed, use the 'Phone Method' detailed in the link below to activate the OS - this method supported by Microsoft and is popular with people who just want a clean installation of Windows 7 without the additional software load normally bundled with OEM installations.
    Any additional drivers and software you may need can be found Here.

  • Lenovo G580 Windows 8.1 WiFi

    Hi there,
    I got a Lenovo G580 recently and it works all fine. Except the WiFi which is down now for a day or so. To be precise I couldn't enter the Internet after I did the Update to Windows 8.1. I deleted the Network via "cmd" and connected again but I still don't have Internet. Windows says I should restart the Router etc. and I did but it still doesn't work plus my smartphone is in the same Network and works just perfect.
    Any thoughts on what I could do to solve this mess?
    And I don't have any options after a rightclick on the WiFi-Network.
    Appreciate all help I can get, Thanks
    ich hab mir letztens fürs Studium einen Lenovo G580 gekauft und alles klappt wunderbar, bis auf die WLAN-Verbindung, die bis zu meinem Update auf Windows 8.1 von Windows 8 auch problemlos geklappt hat. Jetzt hat er aber ständig ein Problem mit dem Standardgateway o.Ä. und schlägt mir jedesmal vor den Router neuzustarten. Hab ich natürlich auch schon paarmal gemacht, bringt leider nichts. Genauso erfolglos war ich als ich in der Eingabeaufforderung die Verbindung gelöscht und dann wieder verbunden habe. Kein Internet nur die begrenzte Netzwerkverbindung. Und wie es immer vorgeschlagen wird mit Rechtsklick auf die Verbindung zu klicken geht leider auch nicht. 
    Hat jemand eine Idee woran es liegt bzw liegen könnte?
    Ich kann dringend Hilfe gebrauchen und bin dankbar für jeden Vorschlag!

  • Partition problem with Win 7 and Lion

    I have a 2011 Mac Mini with two hard drives - the original 500GB drive and a SSD.   The SSD is laid out as follows:
    $ diskutil list
       #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
       0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *60.0 GB    disk0
       1:                        EFI                         209.7 MB   disk0s1
       2:                  Apple_HFS OSX Lion SSD            19.0 GB    disk0s2
       3:                 Apple_Boot Recovery HD             650.0 MB   disk0s3
       4:       Microsoft Basic Data BOOTCAMP W7             40.2 GB    disk0s4
    It has my two bootable operating systems and works fine (for now) so I am happy to leave it alone.
    The problem is with the second drive.  It has:
    1) EFI partition 200M
    2) Original Lion install 40G HFS+
    3) Original recovery partition 650M
    4) Space set aside for OSX HFS+ 160G (has some big files in it)
    5) Space set aside for Windows NTFS 300G (no files in it yet)
    I think there is a problem with MBR vs GPT and Disk Utility vs Disk Management.
    Disk Utility or fdisk calls it
       #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
       0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *500.1 GB   disk1
       1:                        EFI                         209.7 MB   disk1s1
       2:       Microsoft Basic Data                         37.6 GB    disk1s2 (these entries are wrong)
       3:       Microsoft Basic Data                         650.0 MB   disk1s3
       4:       Microsoft Basic Data                         161.5 GB   disk1s4
       5:       Microsoft Basic Data NTFS stuff              300.1 GB   disk1s5 (this entry seems right)
    and I cannot access the partitions in Lion.
    Gdisk calls it:
    GPT fdisk (gdisk) version 0.8.1
    Partition table scan:
      MBR: hybrid
      BSD: not present
      APM: not present
      GPT: present
    Found valid GPT with hybrid MBR; using GPT.
    Disk /dev/disk1: 976773168 sectors, 465.8 GiB
    Logical sector size: 512 bytes
    Disk identifier (GUID): 0000303E-4D40-0000-1B4C-0000F9090000

       5       390590464       976773119   279.5 GiB   0700  Basic data partition (name is wrong)
    Windows Disk Management is happy to see inside the HFS partitions, so I know all my files are at least still there.  I had a 5th NTFS partition formatted, but upon going into Lion and back, it disappeared.
    I think ideally what I would like to have is a spare Lion + recovery partition on this drive in case my SSD barfs, then a big NTFS partition to hold my Windows files.  I guess merging the 40G OSX and 160G HFS+ partitions will be ok.  Could the problem be related to MBR having a limit of 4 partitions?  There isn't any data on this drive that isn't backed up, but I would rather do this partition fixing shuffle without having to restore big files.  Any suggestions on how to proceed?

    I managed to fix the problem.  First I used Disk Utility to delete the NTFS partition.  It hung during the process, so I quit it, and the partition was deleted anyway.  Next, I used gdisk to change the partition type from 0700 to AF00 and AB00 for the Lion and Recovery partitions respectively.  It worked and I can access the partitions under OSX again.  Thanks, everybody, you've been super helpful.

  • Lenovo G580(20157) [Win 7] Bluetooth problems??

    I have a lenovo G580(20157) which has a BCM4313 wireless chipset which supports both WiFi as well as Bluetooth, (citation here: Broadcom Chipsets)
    However I can't use the Bluetooth capability of my chipset.....
    I tried downloading drivers from the Lenovo website(Drivers Main Page), but it would say no driver found at the end of the installation!!
    Also I downloaded Lenovo Energy Managment, and it only shows WiFi (here is a screenshot)
    I also tried downloading Broadcom Bluetooth Solution but itis stuck at detetcting device:
    P.S: I have a new windows 7 installation...Thanks
    Go to Solution.

    hi ArchKudo,
    Looking at the G580 parts (page 102 of the HMM), the Broadcom BCM4313 that the machine uses is a Wi-Fi only card .
      - Link to picture
      - Sample item (BCM4313 with Bluetooth)
      - Sample item (BCM4313 Wi-FI only)
    This may explain why you only see the Wi-Fi settings when you press Fn+F5, In this case, you may need to use a usb bluetooth adapter (like this item) to enable bluetooth functionality on the machine.

  • Netscape Window Resize/Applet Reload Problem

    Is there anyway to keep a java applet from restarting when a Netscape window is resized? This problem doesn't happen in IE.

    In my case, someone told me to eliminate in applet's HTML this directives:
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="No-cache">
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="Cache-Control" CONTENT="no-cache">
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="Expires" CONTENT="0">

    <META HTTP-EQUIV="Cache-Control" CONTENT="mag-age=0">
    Further, to set in Preferences/Advanced/Cache the option "Once per session" for "Document in cache is compared to document to network"
    Believe me, in my case, it's worked with no aditional changes in the original applet's code. (Don't thank to me, my chilean friend Christian was the magician).
