Solved!

when to create restore media for new laptop?

17-Y018
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Just bought a brand new HP Y018 laptop this afternoon, still in the box.  Should I do the W10 anniversary update and then create the recovery media or should I do the recovery media creation first, then the anniversary update?

humm... 

 

 

Does it matter? I think (i am not sure) that  the recovery media creation tool always take a replica of the recovery partition (D). This partition always stays intact even if you apply the anniversary update. 

 

Hope that i helped 🙂

Hi,

 

Depending on which software you are using to create the media. HP Recovery Manager will create a set of Recovery media (DVD's) or USB which allows you to go back to Factory settings therefore you can do before or after W10 Anniversary update.

 

Regards.
