So I "upgraded" to windows 10 when they offered it for free a year ago it was nice at best but i didn't liked it so i went back to my old OS which i wins. 7 but after a month after doing so i started to get BSOD at first it was just hang ups then the BSOD. Since i Have a Lenovo with onekey recovery 7.0, I tried to use it but it only boots back into windows and not to the recovery environment. So i did a bit of looking around and found out windows 10 doesn't like Lenovo's OKR function too much. I made a recovery disc but saw I needed the product key if i wanted to reinstall my windows but the windows sticker under my laptop is worn out, I was wondering if speccy is shows the windows product key? Or, is there a way to fix the onerecovery function?

 

thank you in advance

Look and see if Speccy shows the key (often it does)

There are other ways to get the key, but it depends on if you can get into Windows or not.

Can you get into Windows?

 

If so, try http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/product_cd_key_viewer.html

Right, I got my product key thank you for the help I tried the repair disk and wrote down the product key in case it ask for it left it running all night it was in a loop. I'm going to see if it does it again. Out of curiosity the one key recovery still able read the partition but not excute, can it be reliable to use that partition to make a system factory image or will it be corrupted? I'm able to go in windows but the one key recovery function doesn't go to the recovery environment it judt boots to windows.

There's no easy answer to your question.  It depends on what has gone bad.

The following questions are rhetorical - I don't expect that you'll know the answers to them (and I wouldn't know them either).
Is it the sectors of the hard drive that the OKR resides on that's bad? (a hardware problem)

Is it corruption of the files in the OKR? (a software problem)

Does the damage only involve (for example) a text file - or has it damaged executables or other critical files?

 

Start with these free hardware diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html

The hard drive test will be easiest to run inside of Windows (rather that the bootable tests I suggest at first)

Please run ALL of the tests and let us know the results.

 

Also, Please run this report collecting tool so that we can provide a complete analysis: (from the pinned topic at the top of the forum)   http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576314/blue-screen-of-death-bsod-posting-instructions-windows-10-81-8-7-vista/
FYI - I don't often use the Perfmon report, so if it doesn't work please just let me know.
NOTE:  On problem systems it can take up to 20 minutes for the log files to complete.  Please be patient and let it run.

If you still have problems with it running, there's an alternate tool here (direct download link):  https://github.com/blueelvis/BSOD-Inspector/releases/download/1.0.5/BSODInspector-1.0.5.exe

NOTE:
Please zip up the (.ZIP) files - do not use .RAR or other compression utilities. 
.ZIP is the type file that can be uploaded to the forums.

Well I managed to get a recovery disc with the default factory settings. Oddly it requested 3discs but only used 2 of the three. If the BSOD shows up I'll post on that link. Sorry for the late reply I had life issues

Not a problem with the late reply - I get an email when you reply.
And, I'm way behind in my replies - also due to life issues :0)

Good luck!
