I have recently purchased (July 2016) an S500 but cannot find a way to build factory recovery media.
The system is Windows 10 factory downgraded to Windows 7. I know it has a recovery partition
but in the event of complete hard disk failure I would like to have a back CD's or USB stick

That’s what I thought it has been like that on the Lenovo’s I have worked with for the last few years. It’s not on this system. I now have Lenovo Rescue System 4.0. It allows you to create a backup. No option for factory media!
I have tried this and swapped in a new blank hard drive and “Repeatedly press and release the F2 key after turning on the computer until the Lenovo Rescue System opens, then select OneKey Recovery”.
This fails to happen on a new disk.
It works ok with the original disk but what I want to guard against is the drive failing in 2 years’ time and being in a situation where I cannot easily rebuild a new hard drive.
