Recovery failed with rescue and recovery s230u

Hello,

 

I have made a iso copy of the four recovery disk of my Thinkpad Twist that I bought 3 years ago (namely: SR30A19082-1: Windows 8 Recovery Media for Windows 8 Products Disc 1 of 2; SR30A19082-2: Windows 8 Recovery Media for Windows 8 Products Disc 2 of 2; SR30A19083-1: Operating System Recovery Disc Windows 8 PRO Disc 1 of 2; 0B76921: Operating System Recovery Disc Windows 8 PRO Disc 2 of 2).

I savec those iso copy on the cloud.

 

I want to factory rest my laptop, that meantime was upgraded to win10 and UEFI. I made a bootable USB key, and copy everything from the iso image of Windows 8 Recovery Media for Windows 8 Products Disc 1 of 2, booted on USB, but then just after asking if I want to format all Hard drive as it is a 500GB HDD with a 24GB SSD), i receive a msg saying that recovery failed.

 

Any suggestion?

 

Thanks a lot.

You are going to need to burn DVDs from the ISO images and install from there.  You cannot simply copy the files to a USB stick.

I tried it (not on that model) and I couldn't get it to work after many attempts.  I gave up and use a USB DVD drive.  BTW, if you do that, get a little powered hub also.  Most laptop USB ports don't put out enough power to run a DVD drive

Have to agree with richk.  I and others have tried this and AFAIK nobody has ever gotten it to work.
