Clean reinstall Windows 8.1 on Thinkpad Yoga

2014-05-10, 0:16 AM

Hello,

 

I have been having a large amount of trouble with my Thinkpad Yoga in that I have not been able to access the majority of the applications for a while.  I have tried solving the problem, however after a number of failed attempts, I decided I would rather get rid of the bloatware anyway and do a clean re-install.

 

However, I am unable to perform a clean reinstall as no media came with my purchase.  Where can I get a copy of windows 8.1 to perform a clean reinstall?

I would think the described methodology to create recovery media and reload a Lenovo Think system with Microsoft Windows 8 preload is clear enough?

Anyone tried this method after changing SSD (HDD) with a new one, so you have to make complete fresh install from usb created previously?
