Just wanted to give an update!
It seems the repair installation of windows worked and it actually reinstated the functionality of the "one key recovery" in the laptop...but I'm going to have to contact Lenovo support again anyway as another issue has presented itself.
This laptop is a Yoga...
Thanks Zebanovich, MisterEd and Managed,
I have contacted Lenovo support and the person I spoke to said pretty much the same thing as Zebanovich did earlier in the thread...and also if it didn't work by repair installing windows I would have to send the machine back to them for repair again.
Thanks for asking more details!
Should have posted images from the start...attaching screen shots and photos below of where things are going wrong.
Also the laptop is still under warranty so the repair was done by Lenovo. They did not send any written specification as to what repairs had been...
Thanks for the tip,
I meant more in the in the interest of selling a fully functioning laptop...allowing a buyer to be able to use the little switch underneath the laptop and easily do a factory reset whenever they feel the need to.
Thank you Zebanovich,
All my data is backed up so I'm ready to try reinstalling. I've created the installation media on a USB stick.
As you point out a clean install using the original product key (which I've also extracted) would not work due to it's OEM nature and the motherboard change...so...
I recently had a service done on my Lenovo Yoga C740-14IML Laptop where the motherboard and USB was changed.
Now having had it returned there was some issues with the windows security settings not allowing me to activate the fingerprint reader or the pin code login options.
My question concerns firewire compatibility on my new motherboard.
My firewire audio interface Mackie ONYX 400f has always worked like a dream under win7 64 bit on my old ABIT ab9-PRO motherboard and just keeps on working there too.
Now I bought a more recent machine building it...
