No. I if you are reformatting only a single partition, only that partition will be formatted. Be very careful that whatever utility you are using targets only the active partition, it is easy to nuke the entire drive disk and there goes your copy of your OS. If your computer offers you the opportunity to create physical restore disks it would be wise to do that "just in case".

I don't know how to check the System manufacturer and model

I was using a dvd to do factory restore so does that mean all partition is being formatted?

Will doing too much factory restore reformatting using DVD bad for the hard disc.

It's Lenovo Z series

Everytime after windows update, the windows for the update resized and become smaller is that normal?
