Create Win 8 recovery media in ThinkPad e450

Dear All,

I had purchased lenovo make E450 (ThinkPad) Machine Type Model  :  20DDA02XIG having Operating System: Windows 8.1 Pro 64(EN:English) as preloaded with the laptop. My operating system got carshed and i dont have also recovery media to recover the Operating System. I had contacted the lenovo support and they told my machine Serial no is not eligible to get a recover link through online and i had also visited to the nearest service center and they also told me it will take a month to get it done though request to the Lenovo.

 

Please guide me how to recover my OS as early as possible.

If your machine is a Factory Lenovo, you should have recovery as outlined here, page 36.

https://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/e450_e455_e450c_hmm_en_sp40a27160_03.pdf

This assumes the recovery partitions are intact.

 

You may need to locate a Windows Repair CD/USB stick to boot from to start the recovery. 

 

If your machine shipped with Dos from Lenovo, and a local shop installed win 8.1, you could download a win8 recovery ISO/similar from microsoft.

 

Did you purchase this machine NEW?

If your machine was not a Factory Lenovo, you would not be eligible for Lenovo recovery media, since your win 8 was installed by someone else(shop where purchased?).

You could try this. Another forum user might have better download links.

The license for win 8 is retained inside your Bios/motherboard.
