TP Tablet 2 lost recovery disk

Hey there.

 

I wolud like to know if any had did the same stupid thing as i have done.

 

apparently i had my recovery disk partition deleted, and now i cant do anything with my thinkpad tablet 2.

 

I'm thinking there must be a way to make a bootable usb or download from others who have one?

 

Hope anybody can help me...

 best regards

I have a backup usb flash drive but I do not know how to get it to you.  Is there a way to send private messages in this form to get your address.

Re: TP Tablet 2 lost recovery disk

I just got a solution for this my self..

Made my self a Windows 10 upgrade usb from another Windows 7 laptop, through Microsoft's own tool on their web site.

Got it booted up, but had the lack of touch drivers. Then I had to get a USB hub to connect mouse and keyboard. Made an install without internet, because no wireless drivers also was missing. Actually almost all drivers was missing. But I managed to install Windows 10 on it.

Next up was to download drivers from Lenovo website, on another computer to my tpt2.

Notice that my mouse driver didn't work, so was using only the keyboard to install the drivers, and again with the USB hub inserted.

Actually I was also worried about the activation, but just checked and it has now activated it self as soon as I got a internet connection.

So for now this is a good lesson knowing that always make a recovery USB and not thrust that the build in recovery disc not can be deleted.

A comment on the win 10 on tpt2 is that it is a bit slow right now but that's fine. It was already slow on the win 8.1..
Edge is also a bit slow.

But many thanks blacky77 for your quick answer 😊

"... through Microsoft's own tool on their web site."

"download drivers from Lenovo website"

 

Links mate, is always nice.

 

It helps others in the future which may run into the same mess.

 

It could have helped you prior starting this thread.
