How can I create a USB stick for system recovery for a 110S-11IBR laptop running Windows 10? When I start the system with the Novakey it offers a menu to restore from a system image, but no option to create an image. When I use the Novakey from within Windows 10 nothing happens. The "Onekey Recovery" software that is mentioned at many places apparently is not installed. Neither the icon nor any program with this name can be found anywhere on my system. I bought the system only recently (12/17/2016) and have not done anything with it yet that could have deleted that SW. Do I have to download and install it?

Please state where you bought the machine, ie, bestbuy, walmart, amazon, etc.
If you could provide a model number, that would help. Example: 8009avxxxx.
You will find some box stores do not ship OKR preinstalled. A $ issue with Lenovo contract and special models built for box stores.
A weblink to the seller showing your machine would help.
In the mean time, backup your system using win7 image backup to external USB/HDD.
Also state if you have a D partition of some big size.

Type "recovery drive" in the search box of the Windows 10 tool bar. If "create a recovery drive" shows up @ the top of the search, use that.

I bought it at Best Buy in a store, but their online catalog seems to show the same. Search "lenovo ideapad 110s" at http://www.bestbuy.com/ . I'm not giving the direct link because those sometimes change.
The sticker on my packing box shows model name: 80WG and a barcode: MTM:80WG0001US
The disk manager reports for the internal 32Gb storage: "C:" (27.87GB NTSF, 44% free), "Recovery" (1Gb, hidden, reported healthy, 100% free), "EFI" (260Mb, hidden, reported healthy, 100% free). I have a 64Gb SDHC card inserted, which shows up as drive "D:" (59.46Gb, NTSF, 96% free) and works fine.
Thanks for your help

In response to zoltanthegypsy : I tried that first because I used it on other computers, but for 20 mins it says "please wait". This is not the fastest of computers, but I don't think it is that slow. That's why I tried the Lenovo system and found out that it does not work either.
