Surface Go Tip: Downloading Surface Go Recovery Image

Microsoft finally unveiled its 10-inch tablet with the name “Microsoft Surface Go.” It’s over three years since the company released the Microsoft Surface 3 on May 5, 2015. This new generation has much better features than its predecessor, including the new 10-inch PixelSense display with a higher DPI of 217, double performance, a new 165° total friction kickstand, Windows Hello support, a Surface Connect port, and a more rounded edge design.

Every Microsoft Surface PC also comes with a recovery partition, making it easy to reset your Surface back to factory settings if needed. However, if you can’t reset your Surface Go with the existing recovery partition, or it no longer exists, you can use a recovery drive instead. To create a recovery drive, you must have the official recovery image specifically for your Surface Go model.

This tutorial will walk you through downloading the correct recovery image for your Surface Go.

Two pieces of information you need to know when you want to download a correct recovery image for your Surface Go.

  1. Surface Model: Surface Go.
  2. Serial number: 12-digit number located under the kickstand.

Now, you must visit and download a recovery image page on the Surface support site.
