Is it the system reserved partition you want back?

I thought you wanted to access winre.wim from a key at startup.

They are not the same thing.

System Reserved : Create Using Disk Management

System Reserved : Create for Dual Boot
Thank you. I will take a look at those.

I guess I was using the wrong language by calling it "recovery partition". Yes, it is that "sysem reserved" partition that I want back.

My disk management does not show any 100MB partition, but an 8.98 GB unallocated partition. That is perhaps the Lenovo recovery partition, or their "Quickstart" thing, or maybe just empty space.

In any case, I will take a look at those tutorials. Thank you.
Glad I could help and be sure to post back with an update.

Yes, I saw that - that is why I questioned it - that is not what the first post indicated.

Perhaps the OP mistakenly thinks winre is in the 100mb partition, or that the 100mb is somehow needed to access it.

....Looking in Disk Management from Win 7, I see an unallocated partition, I think about 8.98 GB
He may not have had the 100mb in the first place.
