    I pay a used laptop Sony Vaio SVF 143100c from china , they install windows 8 Enterbrise and no other software or drivers

    when I check I found a recovery volume on the hard disk I assign this volume and copy all the recovery content to external Hard disk, size is 18 GB

    and the product key is valid for Win 8 RTM CoreCountrySpecific OEM:DM,

    I don't have a Recovery Media disk or usb to return to Factory condition, how to create a recovery disk to access tis image and re install tis laptop to Factory condition

    thanks

    Plug in a usb stick.

    Open cmd prompt, type recoverydrive, press enter. GUI will pop up.

    Tick the box which says "copy contents of recovery partition to the recovery drive."

    That might not work as there seems to have been a reinstall since. Worth a try.

    Or you could try applying the image from the recovery partition. I think they may be split wims on a Sony. Should be doable.

    Use push button reset image if you have the choice.

    It was discussed before & I have already advised you. Changing the language of CoreCS is possible but it breaks significant other things.
