No I haven't. My guess is it should still work though, but I don't know to what extent.
Seeing that OKR is at least partially BIOS-based, and the restore partition is proprietary, complete wipe shouldn't be affected. However, I don't know whether the wipe procedure includes any partition table modifications (i.e. whether OSX partition will be overwritten by an XP part restored to its original size, or it's just a format and bunch of files getting copied over). I might test it at some point since I have a suitable HDD, but I need to free it up first, which means someone will likely have to ask me to do it.
OKR also includes a second-stage option to restore user backups, which are stored on that "LENOVO" NTFS partition -- this one should likely work.
I am asking. You seem like you can recover faster from an experiment gone wrong than i can.
