Lenovo G510 Notebook Windows 8 -iso image

2014-02-22, 22:09 PM

Hi,

I have Lenovo G510 Notebook 64 bit with windows 8 Single lanaguage pre-installed. I need to install windows afresh (not restting or refresh given in windows 8). I find that the windows 8 single language version available for  download at  Microsoft website do not work with leonovo having pre-installed windows.

How can I get iso / download windows 8 for G510 notebook having pre-installed windows 8.

Hi mwaratich,

      Welcome to the forums,

 I would suggest you not to completely format but instead you should run an OKR 

 

How to run OKR

 

 

 

Hope this helps

I asussm OKR needs recovery disk. The problem is that it started misbehaving before creating disk for okr. Can OKR disk be purchased for lenovo systems?

No OKR does not require a recovery disk :) all it requires is the factory OEM restore partition and thats about it

 

 

 

keep me posted

Hi, I have a similar problem. Yesterday I got a new G510. The HD is not in good condition after dropping it.

I wanted to swap the 1TB HD anyways for my 120 GB SSD.

I can still get at the files on the original HD. What files and/or partitions do I need to copy to the SSD to get a clean Win 8.1 installation after inserting it in the Laptop?  Right now I have both the old HD and the new SSD on another pc. So I can use Reflect.

 

Please give the name of thos partitions. Not the Drive letter. Because the drive is outside the laptop and the drive letters are different in a system with more HD's.

 

Thanks,


Eric

Abdul_Ahad thanks for this information.
I think I mixed up a bit on system recovery and windows recovery.

- Lenovo G510 windows 8 single language pre-installed,  does not come with a windows 8 CD.
- I formatted the partition of hard disk where windows was installed without making any windows recovery disk.
- windows web site does not provide any windows 8 downloads for pre-installed windows 8, single language.
- Does OEM, lenovo, provide windows 8 installation CD, if not who should / would.
