First thing to do is to create your return to factory discs/ usb flash drive. In this link, google list , check the third in list which is a PDF of a guide to the G700. There's a section about Onekey backup. I don't have a Lenovo but the PDF is quite good.
Also you're better off creating a Microsoft account, ie Outlook.com email, and use that as your main admin account. You'll get access to all the tiles. If you've created a local admin account then I'd leave that on as a backup. Always good to have two profiles on a PC in case of a profile account corruption.
Thank you for coming to my rescue yet again, much appreciated.
I have downloaded and printed the User Guide, all 42 pages of interesting material.
The second link information on the one key was also downloaded and printed. I don't fancy the 2-3 hours plus a big potion of patience to create the disc though!.
I often wonder why manufacturer's stopped supplying the disc, surely the cost of these disc would not amount to much in bulk, perhaps saving very little, except the patience of the computer or laptop buyer?.
Thank you once again. Just leaves finding the COA number now?.
I use a hard drive in a caddy and use Paragon hard disk manager (paid for version) to simply create an image every now and again. With the software you burn a Paragon (Linux) CD that you boot to whenever you need to reinstall the image or change the drive in the event of a hdd failure.
Just notice your further post. When I ran the laptop for the first time, Microsoft gave the option for creating an account. Not sure what I did now, but Microsoft seemed to have accepted it. I think the account was directed through my usual email domain, and not Outlook or Hotmail, which i believe were offered as an option! :O)
