    Yes, I have done this creation of msr step by step. Diskpart said it was sucessful.

    Current partitions.

    DISKPART> list partition


    Partition ### Type Size Offset
    ------------- ---------------- ------- -------
    Partition 1 Primary 1000 MB 1024 KB
    Partition 2 System 260 MB 1001 MB
    Partition 3 Primary 217 GB 1389 MB
    Partition 4 Primary 350 MB 218 GB
    Partition 5 Primary 12 GB 218 GB
    Partition 6 Reserved 128 MB 231 GB

    Based on your last 2 screen shots. I edited the above and here's what I saw.

    In addition, I looked at the saveBCD file and found duplicated Boot Manager and does not look right. Maybe Theog can throw in some thought

    The MSR is on end of the drive.

    What was on the last partition before you DELETED?

    May be Startup Repair or a over install.

    @ arcurius

    Do you have OS boot menu on boot up.

    I suppose a couple of things might be brought up.

    First, Lenovo was one of the systems where the Recovery options would not work correctly with the 350 MB partition added. They later changed it to a 450 MB partition and now, as far as I know, to the OS partition. But if it were to work, it may need the Windows Reset option and not the Lenovo Recovery options.

    It appears you have moved the install to your current hard drive. There are some things involved in such an operation which might be causing problems now.

    When you create a new partition, it will be placed in the largest unallocated space. As possibly Topguncp mentioned, you need to extend the partition into that area or create a new partition so it will no longer be unallocated. If you do have additional unallocated space, to create the MSR partition, you need to give it an offset location. Not really sure if that is related to your current situation except it might have changed the partition numbers for the recovery configuration.

    Do you know for sure the WinRE.wim file is located in a WindowsRE folder? Asus does this, but most others used a GUID folder identifier for that file. If that were to be the case, you would need that GUID number. But Theog is correct in that the Recovery tools may have been moved to the 350 MB partition, which means you should be using partition 4 instead of partition 1. But with the information you have, this is an unknown so far.

    I seem to remember Lenovo systems having two 1000 MB partitions, one being marked as OEM. Your system was not configured this way?

    Lenovo G580 (after Windows 8.1 update from the Windows Store)

    Partition 1 - Recovery - 1000 MB
    Partition 2 - System - 260 MB
    Partition 3 - OEM - 1000 MB - OEM partition does not exist in all Lenovo computers (with Windows 8/8.1).
    Partition 4 - Reserved - 128 MB - This partition not visible within Windows Disk Management.
    Partition 5 - Primary - 908 GB
    Partition 6 - Recovery - 350 MB or 450 MB - Windows RE location
    Partition 7 - Recovery - 20 GB - Recovery image location

    @genet,
    If you look at post #3, the result from reagentc /info, the recovery partition is pointing at Partition 5. Since updating from 8 ->8.1, Windows deleted the 128MB MSR Partition, so now the recovery partition became 4. That's the reason why I asked op to create a simple partition in the 128 unallocated so the recovery partition would be back to 5. However, it did not work and using Visual BCD to inspect his BCD, I found it has duplicate bootmgr and other unknown info as shown in the screen shot I posted above.
