Re: [G510] Recovery partition deleted and no Recovery DVD

hi izadfard

 

Welcome to the Forums.

 

If you didn't create a recovery drive (using this method) then I recommend you contact lenovo on how to obtain a copy of the recovery disc which restores the preloaded Win8 OS, drivers, and apps.

 

Alternatively, if the machine came preloaded Windows 8 or Windows 8.1, you can try the following:

 

For Windows 8:

1. Obtain a Windows 8 installation disc and use it to reinstall Windows (if the system is preloaded with Windows 8, the installation will automatically detect the Win8 product key in the UEFI Firmware / BIOS and will automatically activate Windows).

2. From here, you can obtain the drivers from the G510 drivers page and/or upgrade to Windows 8.1 via the Windows Store (see this guide)

 

For Windows 8.1:

1. Check this guide on how to obtain a Windows 8.1 ISO (see Option One)

2. When finished, follow this guide to make a bootable UEFI Win8.1 installer via DVD or USB flashdrive and use it to install Windows (the installation should be able to detect the Windows 8.1 product key in the UEFI firmware that will let you activate Windows).

3. If successful, obtain the drivers from the G510 drivers page 

 

 

Regards

Re: [G510] Recovery partition deleted and no Recovery DVD

Sorry for the grave dig:

 

Can I have a recovery ISO from anyone who has all drivers working? I cant get audio to work. It didnt bother me the first few years because i used to use an USB sound card. But now that one died and i really want to fix that issue. No drivers from anywhere in the internet work. The device gets detected after a fresh windows install. The first reboot makes the device nowt showing up anywhere as if it was not connected.

 

Greetings

Not sure why your drivers are not working, not clear what OS you are using, or if same notebook.

Please update post with your specifications, including OS version and machine model information.
