lost Windows10 - how to restore

2018-06-10, 17:57 PM

My Yoga 3 Pro kept freezing so Lenovo had me save data and perform the wipe-out, one-key recorvery process.  An operating system came back however not Windows10 - my laptop is now Windows 8.X.  Please assist - how do I get back to Windows 10?

Hello and welcome,


Use the MS Win 10 media creation tool - "upgrade this PC" option.  If you were previously running Win 10 on this machine (and it was activated) activation should be automatic.




[edit to add] You can do either an upgrade or a clean install - either one should activate. Either way you'll probably need to install or update Lenovo drivers.  Installing Lenovo Vantage from the MS store can help with that.
