Do you know about the things to keep in mind while creating Recovery Disk in Lenovo IdeaPad?
The Lenovo IdeaPad also has a metallic orange strip running all along its screen edge which accentuates the overall look of the system when the screen is turned off. The IdeaPad notebook comes with memory options of 512MB and 1GB and hard disk options of 80GB and 160GB. You are usually provided with a recovery disk at the time of purchase of a new computer. This disk contains the original factory settings of your system as configured by the original equipment manufacturer. If you are not provided with a recovery disk during purchase, you might create one for yourself. This is carried out by saving the image of the partition where you have saved your Operating system and other important files either into a single file or by splitting into a series of files. Symantec Norton Ghost software is usually used to create a recovery disk. The image might be saved either on a hard disk or a recordable disc.
Following are the tips for creating recovery disk in Lenovo IdeaPad:
- Utilities required
- Multisession burning
- BIOS settings
In order to create the recovery disk in the Lenovo IdeaPad, you require tools such as Windows Millennium startup diskette. This tool helps you to make your recovery disk bootable. You need some CD/DVD writing software that is capable of making your CD bootable. You need to go for Nero software for this capability.
You need to go for the compilation of the bootable features of the Windows Millennium startup diskette into a recordable disk. This is to be created in the multisession format. You would get a message that the disk was not burned in the multisession format. You need to ignore the message and continue with the multisession. You are supposed to write all the files in the multisession format.
In order to create a recovery disk, you require BIOS that is capable of booting from a CD/DVD. You are required to adjust the settings in your BIOS so as to enable it to boot from a CD/DVD. While using your recovery disk, you are required to set your CD/DVD as the first boot device in the BIOS of your motherboard. You are also required to restart the system after inserting the recovery disk.
