How to use the OEM reserved from another drive?


The Disk 2 is the HDD of my laptop before

This disk has bad sectors, cannot install windows, but can be use for storage
thats why I ask TECHNICIAN to make this HDD to External HDD (They call it "ENCLOSURE")

The Problem is the DRIVERS, PREINSTALLED SOFTWARE, etc is on the "LENOVO_PART" DISK
What should I do to use it?
Will this RECOVERY work if I burn it into a DVD?
This is what I want to happen How to use the pre-boot service partition to recover your software
but how can i do this if the recovery is on another drive?
PLEASE HELP ME.

If a disk has bad sectors it is faulty! Internal or outside in enclosure... still bad sectors and faulty!

Is windows running fine now?
Is Windows 7 activated?
Check device manager for "other devices". Correct "display adapter" installed?

Do you really need the stupid bloatware from recovery partition?

Not an answer to your question, but I need to know it. I can give you a better answer later

My windows is fine but my prevoius OS was better than this because when starting UP
Instead of "Welcome" theres a message before it "Please Wait"
and when I open a program It will hang for few seconds.
I dont know if this cause by new HDD or Drivers.
My windows is activated, GENUINE.

Do you have backups of all important data? So you really want a "factory restore"?

To restore your computer to the original factory configuration using the recovery disc set, do the following:
1.Make the CD/DVD drive the first startup device in the startup sequence using the following procedure:
Repeatedly press and release the F1 key when turning on the computer. When you hear multiple beeps or see a logo screen, release the F1 key. The Setup Utility program opens.
Use the arrow keys to select Startup. Depending on your computer model, select Primary Boot Sequence, Boot, or Startup Sequence.
Select the CD/DVD drive as the first boot device by following the instructions and the help messages on the screen.

2.Insert the Applications and Drivers Recovery Disc into the DVD drive.

4.Select your language and click Next.
5.Read the license. If you agree to the terms and conditions, select I agree to these terms and conditions and then click Next. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions, follow the instructions on the screen.

10.When all of the data has been copied from the last disc in the set and processed, you will be prompted to restart the computer. Click Yes to restart the computer. Note: The rest of the recovery process is fully automated and no action is required by you. The computer will restart into the Microsoft Windows desktop several timesand you might experience periods when no activity is apparent on the screen for several minutes at a time. This is normal.

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
