Hi ,


Welcome to the Community. 


Are you having issues with Windows? Can you still log in to your Yoga Book?


Here's a guide on how to restore the Yoga book to its factory settings: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/tablets/yoga-series/yoga-book/solutions/ht502594


To check if the Yoga Book is eligible with the Windows Recovery media program, enter the serial number here to request for a recovery USB or download a digital OS. 


You may also check this discussion on how to boot from USB.


Hope it helps.

You should be able to reinstall Windows without a serial number - it should authenticate Windows just fine. However actually doing it might be problematic: the keyboard won't function until the install is done and drivers are installed. Driver and supported software needs to be done in the correct order otherwise things won't work properly. (This has been discussed here previously.)


A reset or restore would be the better option. Personally I wouldn't even attempt a reinstall from scratch on a Yoga Book without having a good system image to hand to fall back on if things go bad.

Try resetting your Yoga Book to factory defaults and see if it works fine. From my experience, it should fix whatever problem you're having with the OS.


If it doesn't help and you still need to reinstall Windows, carefully follow this guide for easier Windows installation.
