H50-50 Desktop can't create a recovery drive on this PC

I was advised to do this and shown how to do it by the retailer (on a different machine! - go into control panel, klick on recovery drive, etc...) but I get an error message: Can't create a recovery rive on this PC. Soe required files are missing. Use your insallation disco or media. Which I don't have as it came pre-installed with Windows 8.1. Bought it today.

I want to upgrade to Windows 10 but would also like to keep a recovey drive on USB - what do I need to do to get this. I've been googling and it appears it's not possible due to some Lenovo specific settings? OneKey recovery (4) doesn't give me the option to create recovery device.

Any help would be most appreciated!
