When I purchased my computer, it included a copy of Windows. How can I
determine whether the copy of Windows is preinstalled by Lenovo?
On the outside of the sales package of your computer, you should find a label containing
configuration information for your computer. Check the printed string next to OS. If it contains
Windows or WIN, the copy of Windows was preinstalled by Lenovo.
What is the Recovery Partition?
If your computer is preinstalled with any version of Windows 10, the storage device of your
computer contains a Recovery Partition. This partition contains the image file of the preinstalled
Windows operating system. In cases of system failure, you can use the Lenovo OneKey
Recovery system or the Windows Reset feature to restore the operating system to its factory
status.
Note: The Recovery Partition is not assigned a drive letter and cannot be accessed through Windows File
Explorer.
32
Chapter 3. Recovery system
I uninstalled a preinstalled software, but there is no significant increase in the free
drive space.
The copy of Windows running on your computer may be Compact technology enabled. For
computers with Compact technology enabled Windows, the majority of files needed for
preinstalled software are installed on the Recovery Partition and won’t be deleted through
normal uninstallation.
What happens if I attempt to delete or modify the Recovery Partition?
~ Attention:
• Do not delete or modify the Recovery Partition on a Compact technology enabled computer.
If the Recovery Partition is deleted or modified, you may not be able to restore Windows to
the factory status. For computer models on which Compact technology is enabled, deleting
the Recovery Partition may cause Windows to fail to start.
How can I determine whether the Windows running on my computer is Compact
technology enabled?
Compact technology is normally enabled on copies of Windows 10 Update running on SSD (or
eMMC) -only computer models. To check your computer,
a Right-click the Start button in the lower-left corner and select Disk Management.
b The Disk Management program starts.
If Wim Boot is labeled on the Windows partition (as illustrated), Compact technology is enabled
on your copy of Windows.
