Windows 7: Windows 7 OEM

There's no reason to browse the REcovery partition. Just test if it runs by attempting to run Factory Recovery from boot: How do I recover my system using ThinkVantage Rescue and Recovery

Hopefully you made your Recovery disks when you set up the PC. If not you can order them from Lenovo if ever needed.

If it won't run then you can delete the partition and recover it into C drive.

I'm not sure why your C drive is way over to the right away from the disk reader. Did you reinstall to the former data partition? Do you still have the old OS on D? I would want my OS on the first partition.

If you didn't follow the steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
then I'd start over and delete all partitions during reinstall.

You could have inserted the Ultimate Product Key into Anytime Upgrade from Home Basic and it would have unlocked the few extra expensive features in Ultimate without having to reinstall: Windows Anytime Upgrade - How to - Windows 7 Forums.
If Recovery will run you might want to restore to factory condition and try that method.

You have a Clean Reinstall which ditches all of the Lenovo crapware, duplicate utilities, branding and other useless junk.

If you want help for what really matters now then reply to my earlier post in full.

You should have done some research on your own before attempting such a task.

Google is your friend.

You should do a factory restore. Look for what key to push to start the process when you first turn on the pc. Hopefully you didn`t muck that up.

Did you try running Lenovo Factory Recovery? That will reinstall all of the preinstalled software that came with the PC and is NOT a clean install. You can also insert your Ultimate Product Key in Anytime Upgrade to unlock the extra features in Ultimate from the Basic desktop.

A Clean Reinstall is using the Win7 installation DVD to reinstall without all of the factory bloatware, what you apparently did. Follow these steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

Where did you get Win7 Ultimate? How is it being activated?

You can always insert your Ultimate Product Key to do an Anytime Upgrade, whether you are able to buy Anytime Upgrade or not. Windows Anytime Upgrade - How to - Windows 7 Forums

What extra features do you need that are not in Basic, as Home Premium is likely all you need since it's all most users ever need: Compare Windows 7 Editions - Windows 7 Forums
