You can always create a Windows recovery USB drive by performing the following:
Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap Search.
(If you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, and then clickSearch.)
Enter Recovery in the search box, tap or click Settings, and then tap or click Create a recovery drive.
You might be asked for an admin password or to confirm your choice.
After the recovery drive tool opens, make sure the Copy the recovery partition from the PC to the recovery drivecheck box is selected, and then tap or click Next.
Or, if you want to create a recovery CD or DVD instead, clear the Copy the recovery partition from the PC to the recovery drive check box, tap or click Next, and then tap or click Create a system repair disc with a CD or DVD instead.
On the next screen, find the size of the recovery partition, and then insert a USB flash drive into your PC that is at least this size.
Tap or click the USB drive you would like to use for your recovery disk, then tap or click Next.
Tap or click Create.
The recovery image and necessary recovery tools will be copied to your USB flash drive, which will take a while, depending on your PC and the size of the recovery image.
When the process is done, do one of the following:
If you want to keep the recovery partition on your PC, tap or click Finish.
If you want to remove the recovery partition from your PC and free up disk space, tap or click Delete the recovery partition. Then tap or click Delete. This will free up the disk space used to store your recovery image. When the removal is done, tap or click Finish.
Remove your USB flash drive.
To boot from this your may need to change the BIOS settings.

Looks like the only answer then is to return to Lenovo for them to repair by re-imaging the SSD drive.
You could ask the dealer you purchased it from if they are able to help (as they may have a suitable disk image).
I can say that my recently purchased yoga 13 (from Currys) was able to produce both a Windows recovery USB and One Key recovery backup to an external hard drive all OK.
