Lenovo Y510P Windows OS issue

Situation: Currently deployed in Afghanistan with limited resources for my personal laptop. My windows 10 OS (Windows 8 came preinstalled on my laptop) stopped being able to boot up something about a config file missing. So my easiest option I could find was to downlaod UBUNTU onto a bootdrive from a buddys laptop. I installed ubuntu but want to know if theres a way of wiping my old Windows OS and getting it back? I could go back and find the error for the windows boot. But would honestly just like to wipe it and reinstall windows. I do not have a boot disc or product key that i know of for windows since it came preinstallled. Sorry if some of what i said was redundent! Appreciate any help!

Hi dmikemike,

You can download a windows 10 media creation tool and use it to repair/re-install window 10. The product key is embed in the motherboard so you don't have to worry. 
Here's the link :


Stay safe.
