When I buy a new lenovo (ideapad 310isk15 80uh 00000br) with win10, should I backup the computer as soon as I turn it on in order to use the one key recovery one day or does the partition already have the win10 for recovery proposes?
The reason I am asking this is because I will install Linux for dual boot but I don't want to loose windows and I want to keep a turn to rollback the original pc if needed.

Hi pfbrodriguez ,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
If your machime came with a preloaded Win10 Home then you also have a hidden partition that can reimage the computer back to factory defaults as Lenovo OneKey Recovery system (page 25) .
Changes in the harddrive partition would cause the OKR hidden partition not to work.
Before anything else , create a separate recovery image . You can review this steps for dual boot on Windows 10 as it can offer shrinking Windows 10 and test if OKR would still work before proceeding with Linux install. If you have D Lenovo drive , it may contain original drivers so best you copy it too. Cloning the original drive with a spare can guarantee a fallback plan as changes to the original OS is not supported by the hardware warranty.
Hope this help answer your query.
Update us how it is best for you to proceed.
