Exactly, but I dont know how to do it because the Recovery Files is on the External HDD

Unfortunately, No because I dont know how to do it
The OEM Drive is not visible when you are running windows Its only visible when you are going to install OS
But through Acronis I can see the files inside this drive but cannot use
Did you make backup of EVERYTHING of new disk already?
Assign a drive letter to LENOVO_PART using disk management. In this exmaple I use Y as drive letter http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...ndows-7-a.html

In Elevated Command Prompt
Code:
dir/s y:\  >c:\dir.txt
dir/s/ah  y:\  >>c:\dir.txt
Post file c:\dir.txt. You may delete that file afterwards
I already assign a letter to this drive before
when I try to copy the files from LENOVO_PART not all files have been copied
and the letter will gone after few minutes

Why not simple clone external disk to internal disk? And do the factory recovery from NEW disk afterwards. Be sure to make a good clone!

To be honest, i havent tried this kind of recovery but I want to know it.
First make a backup image of NEW disk! Imaging with free Macrium

You can clone with that software as well. Clone with winpe version, also listed on the tutorial.

But I thought the old disk was faulty???????!!!
