Lenovo Y580 Windows 8 ReInstall

2013-04-03, 1:09 AM

Hello, hope you are doing good!


Ok, so my Y580 shipped with Windows 8. A month after I installed Windows 7 which I have been using up until now.

I wish to go back to Windows 8.


When I installed Windows 7, I was forced to repartite (Repartition ?) the entire hard drive. It only has 1 partition with all the data in it.

I already backed up all my important data in an external disk.


How do I repartition my hard drive so it uses all Lenovo's feature such as One Key Recovery and Windows 8 own back to fabric?


From when can I download Windows 8?

Where's the Windows 8 serial of my computer, I did not write it up before installing Windows 7.
