Ideapad 110s System Recovery not working

I installed Ubuntu via bootable flash drive on a brand new Lenovo 110s without activating Windows 10. Now I'd like to restore it to factory settings or at least get Windows 10 set up as the primary os. I've tried using the onekey system recovery button but as soon as I select System Recovery from the menu, I boot into Ubuntu. What would be the best way to go about doing this?

Have you tried just booting into Windows 10 from the Grub boot menu? It should be in the boot menu when you start your computer.

Yes, boots straight to Ubuntu. I’ve also set Windows boot manager to highest boot priority but nothing works. Is this because I didn’t activate WIndows at all?

How do you know the recovery partition is still there and had not been wiped when you installed Ubuntu?

I don't want to steal your topic, but on my 110S..which does have WIN10..the system recovery isn't working either.

You should not be hijacking a thread.

 

The solution for you could very well be completely different than for the OP.

 

Start your own thread!

kudos, my friend...I already did. Just couldn't resist...maybe a 110s cannot use the system recovery at all ( that was the hidden message )

I have no clue what you are writing.

I think you may be right. I see 3 partitions -- EFI, Linux & Linux Swap. If it's been deleted, there's no turning back huh?

On my 120S there are four partitions:

1. EFI  260MB

2. Microsoft  16MB

3. Microsoft 27.9GB

4. Microsoft recovery  1000M

 

If you blew away the recovery partition, you will need to install Windows 10 from USB flash drive using the Media Creation Tool.
