how to create factory default recovery disk with OneKey Recovery 8.0? (G500, win8.1)

There are discussions on creating recovery disks with OneKey Recovery 7.0. But my G500 is  with win8.1 and Onekey 8.0. I didn't see it support creating CDs.

 

And when I tried to create such a recovery image, OneKey 8.0 said it needs 90G space. It looks like OneKey will backup all files from my C disk.

 

I just want to create factory recovery disks, in case the HDD failed.

 

Can anyone tell me how to create such disks? (It doesn't make sense to spend 60$ to order such disks from Lenovo)
