I have just bought an Ideapad 510 with Windows 10. I'd like to make a Factory Default Recovery Disc on a removable media (preferably USB) as I may wish to replace the hard drive shortly. I've read as many forum posts / knowledgebase articles and support pages as I can find and none of them address my problem.
- Onekey Recovery 8 packaged on the machine does not provide the option for Factory Default Recovery Disc as indicated on the knowledge base and support pages for Onekey Recovery 7
- I've found this link which indicates it is possible to move the recovery partition to USB but with no instructions as to how

Hi crossbox ,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
similar to this video.
For best practice , don't delete or do changes with the original drive /image/ partition as warranty covers it.
Any event within warranty that the factory reset fails would allow you to have other options with tech support specially if you do not have a recovery image or created image fails.
Once you have a system image , try to install it to your spare harddrive to verify functionality .
If you also want a fresh clean installation to the new drive (Windows 10 only) , you can simply download its media creation tool at anytime.
Update us how it would best work for you .
