    Recovering a partition should only take a few seconds. All it has to do is rewrite the table for that partition.

    From your earlier attachment, you were using the Data Recovery Wizard. If that is what you are running now, it may not help, but I would not recommend interrupting it. We need to use the Partition recovery wizard or maybe that is what you meant.

    When you get to run the Partition Recovery Wizard, if it works, then we will probably have to reset the Partition Type IDs on the First and Last Recovery partition. The Second 1000MB partition is the One Key partition, I think, and should show as OEM. But the other two should show as Recovery.

    I assume you are still waiting on the Data Recovery wizard to finish?

    From your attachment, I would say you need to check all the boxes since they all seem to be the correct partitions. If you see something that doesn't look right about the partitions if it finding, post back.

    Yes, they should be hidden. So we are going to hide them using Diskpart and set the Type ID and attributes to the correct settings.


    The two recovery partitions are supposed to have the designations below. We can use diskpart to set those.

    Type ID de94bba4-06d1-4d40-a16a-bfd50179d6ac

    Attributes 0X8000000000000001

    The second 1000 MB partition is supposed to be an OEM version and has the following Type ID and attribute.

    BFBFAFE7-A34F-448A-9A5B-6213EB736C22

    0x8000000000000001

    Now open the Administrative command prompt and type Diskpart

    You need to select the drive you want to work on, so list the drives and then select the one you want.

    Diskpart
    list disk
    select disk 0

    Now you need list and then select the partition you want to work on. The partitions will probably be 1,3 and 7, so 1 and 7 will be set up the same way, 3 will using the OEM configuration. Now list and select the partition you want to work on and make sure you use the correct numbers.

    list partition
    sel par 1

    --Now set the two entries from above.

    set id=de94bba4-06d1-4d40-a16a-bfd50179d6ac

    gpt attributes=0x8000000000000001

    --Do the same for partition 7

    sel par 7

    set id=de94bba4-06d1-4d40-a16a-bfd50179d6ac

    gpt attributes=0x8000000000000001




    --Now use the other settings for partition 3

    set id=BFBFAFE7-A34F-448A-9A5B-6213EB736C22

    gpt attributes=0x8000000000000001

    --Now exit diskpart and you should be done.

    Keep in mind in a command prompt window, you can copy and paste from within or from without and the up arrow key will show previous commands so you don't have to type them again. Which means you can copy the commands from here and paste them in the command window using the right click options in the window.

    Any questions, post back.

    I would suggest you get the service guy to fix the problem. If he had installed 8.1, you would not need a key. Make sure he installs the correct version, Pro or Core also.

    Bottom line, you need the 8.1 install files, or a factory image from somewhere.
