    Reinstalling windows ?

    Hi so i just got this great pc G20 <3
    so it comes with a preinstalled Windows 8.1 if i at somepoint wish to format and reinstall Windows how would i proceed ?
    i see the harddrive split into 2 c drive has the fresh installed Windows and the other is 700gb free Space

    my old computer had a system recovery drive but i dont seem to have this anywhere
    only the preinstalled windows
    do i need to manually do a backup this version of Windows for later use ?


    or can i simply press some F10 button during poweron to start a recover ?

    another option is to make a USB backup of windows of your machine , in the charms bar select search , type recovery , u need a 32 GB USB Drive. to make a USB bootable recovery drive , option 2 is what most do make your own bootable USB drive with W recovery

    Ok so i just figured out while messing around with some software to make recovery partition
    The computer allready comes with a HIDDEN partition that is not accessable from Windows with the recovery info on it
    all you have to do is Press F9 during poweron and it will take you to a recovery menu
    there is options to recover from usb cd etc. instead chose reset
    there is a option for resetting to factory default install
