Hi to everyone... Good day to all of you... I just wanted to ask help also regarding my Lenovo Y300 because my problem with it is I think the same and related to this topic. When I bought Y300 the OS is Windows Vista but then after few months I downgrade it to Windows XP Professional and in doing this I reformat Drive C and D. Reformatting the Drives most specially the Drive C I think and almost sure becomes the cause of the One Key Recovery failure. Now Im planning to bring back the OS of my laptop to its original OS which is Windows Vista but I cannot do it because the One Key Recovery function is deleted. Please help me also to bring back my OS to Vista.. I need your help guys and I hope I can get it here. Thank you so much in advance... God bless us all..

I reformat Drive C and D,
if D was the recovery partition then the one touch will not work as the recover partition is empty , you will need to install Vista with the recovery dvd's that you should have created when you first bought the laptop ,the dvd s intent was for time like this .if you didn't make the dvd's then
if you have the vista key on the back of the laptop you could try borrowing Vista disk , same version as yours and use the key on the back of laptop

My answers are my opinion only,usually
