    Well, that partition was not created and Í imagine instead its content overwrote the recovery partition.
    What was te reason, I can't say.

    Also, I've not checked C: free space

    So, anyone recently purchased a Surface Pro 3 with Windows 10 preinstalled? What if - use that SP3's serial number and download recovery image file from
    Download a recovery image for Microsoft Surface

    Hope someone could share the file with the rest of us.

    Got double confirmation that users of SP3 with W10 preinstalled can download a newer version of recovery image with file name
    SurfacePro3_BMR_10_10.34.0.zip
    I think it should be Windows 10 based. But don't know how to get a copy of it..

    you might still have to have done the upgrade from win8.1 to win10, once you have done it once the activation server will remember your key for you. But it really depends on what if tattooed in our bios.

    Welcome to the forum

    The forum guidelines will not allow anyone to post a link to the file on this forum. What is keeping you from downloading it?

    I imagine the fact that his SP3 came with W8.1 (same as mine)

    MS has dropped the ball here. A Windows 10 recovery image for the thousands of existing SP3's sold with 8.1 should have been available at launch.

    Given the nightmarish stories of upgrades, resets and reinstalls permeating this and other forums, I hope they release it soon.

    I'm wondering what's preventing this.
    I mean, a recovery is a recovery, so it's supposed to take you to the starting point (W8.1 for most of us) but what's the problem with providing options?
    I don't think there's any hardware difference (even then, I doubt it would be substantial)

    It left the factory with one set of settings, based on serial number you get either 8.1 or 10. It's a rational decision.
