How to reset yoga to factory settings?

2012-11-24, 1:13 AM

When I repartitioned my SSD, I did not make a back up anything because my usb was only 7.4 GB and I needed 8 and now I don't know how to get it back to factory settings..I need to return it. Does anybody know what to do? The reset thing in the Windows Settings does not work.

did you use the hotfix from lenovo to do the repartition, if so, it moved it to your c drive so you can still restore; otherwise most likely anyone that did a backup when the system was new could make you a copy to use.

Shouldn't hvae done the repartition without a backup. 


If you can get a USB stick with Windows 8 on it, you can use that to make the reset function in Win 8 Settings work.


Otherwise, your only real solution for getting it into "returnable" configuration is:

 1) Remove all personal documents from the computer

 2) Create a new user account with a generic name (like "Lenovo") and give it administrator privs.

 3) Log in under the new account and then remove your original user account


Curious, since I had to return mine too: Why are you returning yours?
