Ideapad 510 Factory Default Recovery Disc

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

Re: Ideapad 510 Factory Default Recovery Disc

Hi crossbox , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

On the document link , How To Create A Backup System Image/ Repair Boot Disk in Windows 7,8 and 10

similar to this video. 

 

For other backup recovery option , user guide chapter on One Key Recovery would help

 

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 .

 

Regards
