what part of NOT ENOUGH SPACE is not understood... ive seen many people make the mistake thinking the image size is all the space you need on the hard drive (SSD, whatever)... where what actually happens is the 3 DVD's you got do *not* extract windows directly.. they create the recovery partition, where windows is restored from that recovery partition... so you got a recovery partition being made (say 20GB or so), and windows (plus preloaded crapware) wants to take up another 20GB... 20+20= more than 32GB
if ya wanna make windows fit in this 32GB SSD... fork out the bucks to purchase your own copy of windows 7 (no crapware, no recovery partition)... else get at least a 64GB SSD

I understand what does "not enough space" mean, and buying a new SSD with more capacity is not an option for me. There is got be another way to fix that problem, otherwise why would Lenovo produce a laptop with 32GB SSD knowing that if something happens to the OS, there is no way to fix it using recovery image. Also I have cheeked the image size again and it is 10,5GB (the third DVD is almost empty), so 10,5 *2 is 21GB which is less than 32GB.
