Can't Create USB Recovery Drive after Win 8.1 upgrade on Lenovo Twist

After upgrading to Win 8.1 and trying to create the usb recovery drive, I get this error:

 

"We can't create a reccovery drive on this PC. Some required files are missing.To trouble shoot problems when your PC starts,use your window installation disk or media"

 

Can some give me a hint as to how to solve this?Thx.

Re: Can't Create USB Recovery Drive after Win 8.1 upgrade on Lenovo Twist

I contacted Lenovo who sent me out a set of 4 Recovery disks. These disks fixed the problem but it meant wiping out the hard drive and reinstalling very thing from scratch. A new recovery partition is created and the discs reinstalled Win 8 which had to be updated. Then Win 8.1 could be installed. Everything is now working as it should.
