Nope...it is full of bloatware. I tried burning all the files being extracted from .winrar to the DVD and try to boot from the DVD but nothing happens. Think i have missed something here. Any other suggestions?

Did you download ImgBurn & install it ? Then right click on the .iso file and choose Open with ImgBurn. Burn at 4x speed with Verify ON.

I just installed ImgBurn from Major Geeks, there was an option to install the Ask Tool bar, which I UNchecked, no bloatware.
Here is the developers' site.
The Official ImgBurn Website

If you extract all the files from the downloaded .rar files, you don't need an iso file. From your snip it has the Boot folder in the file list. You should burn those files, all of them, to a DVD. Don't burn the folder they are in. Open said folder and select all of them, then Send To> your blank DVD drive with a writable DVD in it.

If you are bent on an iso, select all the un-rarred files and right click one of them, then click Create ISO Image File, as shown below. Then use ImgBurn (assume you already installed it for this to work) to make a bootable disk.

an .iso file contains more than just files, if you want a functional DVD you can must burn it with a iso-burning program. Any self-respecting DVD burning program can do it, not just ImgBurn.

One side question. Have anyone owned a Lenovo Y580 that comes pre-installed with Windows 8 but then downgrade it to Windows 7 using UEFI and managed to use Lenovo OKR 7.0 Engineering edition?

Please help.....
What exactly are you trying to do? Are you trying to do a recovery?

I'm curious why you are downloading a file from File Factory to do that.

There is a one key recovery on the Lenovo site for the Y580,

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.

Hi all - this is what i am trying to achieve. Please bear with me. It is abit long.
The Lenovo Ideapad Y580 comes pre-installed with Win8. Now, i am downgrading it to Win7 (home premium) 64 bits using BIOS mode. There is no need to perform a recovery because the laptop is spanking new, with NO personal data in it. I am doing a clean installation ~ wiping clean of everything ~ and then proceed to download the drivers one by one. The show stopper is detailed below.

The One Key Recovery 7 (OKR 7) driver at Lenovo website will NOT create a recovery partition (called Lenovo_Part) in the SSD. There is a button (called the Novo button) on the Ideapad whereby when we press on it, it will automatically create a recovery of everything in C Drive into this recovery partition. The OKR driver found at the Lenovo website is not able to create this recovery partition. We need to use the OKR 7 Engineering edition found at this link to create this recovery partition.
Lenovo OneKey Recovery 7 Engineering DVD - Software Chat - nsane.forums

We need to burn this OKR7 Engineering edition into a DVD and then boot from the DVD itself. Then, this will create a recovery partition in the SSD. Further instruction on how to use the OKR7.0 engineering edition can be found here.
Disk Partitioning and OneKey Recovery Feature - Page 37 - Lenovo Community

Hence, I managed to download the entire file (OKR7.0 Engineering edition) which is in (.RAR format) from FileFactory. To date, i have already extracted all the contents and burn all the contents into a DVD. The contents are shown in this picture.

Unfortunately, i cannot boot from this DVD and find it very frustrating. The instruction in the link above states we need to boot from this DVD to create a recovery partition in the SSD.

Hence, i need to know how to:
(1): Correctly burn all the contents in the .RAR file into the DVD, and more importantly,
(2): create a bootable disk so that i can boot from that disk and follow the instructions listed in this link:

Thanks for the help and reading to the end of this post.

Hi all;
Just to follow up on the above. Have done everything that DocBrown requested and it worked....:-)
Thanks....hahaha...on reflection - silly me...i need to enter into BIOS and set the boot priority -----> being to boot from Optical Disk Drive....typical beginner's mistake.


Anyway, this leads on to another problem. Apparently, OKR 7.0 Engineering edition does not allow me to part disk...i.e.; create a separate partition being LENOVO_PART where the recovery file will be kept in this partition ~!

What can i do now???? ANy ideas???? Is this because my laptop Lenovo Y580 is not an original Windows 7 laptop but was a Windows 8 laptop? As being pointed out by this dude? That is why i cannot create the recovery partition?

My current disk is still not showing the Lenovo_Part as shown below.
