I had to install Linux on a newly bought laptop, but while I was doing it, I accidentally corrupted the EFI partition, so I had to format and repartition the drive. Could anyone give me a hint on how I could bring the original windows 10 with pre-installed Lenovo programs back after the formatted hard drive?
Thanks a lot in advance.

If you reformatted the drive and repartitioned it without creating a disk image, then you are going to have to order recovery media from Lenovo if you want all the pre-installed Lenovo applications. If you just want to install a clean copy of Windows 10, you can download Windows Installation Media for free via Microsoft.
In the US you need to Contact Lenovo support https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/contactnow
