I'm having trouble getting my X200 tablet back to its factory settings.
Most of the instructions I've found online say to press the blue "ThinkVantage" button when prompted during startup, but instead of having an F11 option to restore factory settings, I only have three options:
1) continue booting
3) choose temporary boot device
It appears I have a recovery partition (Lenovo Recovery H: ). Rescue and Recovery is installed.
Next I tried to create factory recovery disks. When I try to run "Factory Recovery Disks" in "Lenovo ThinkVantage Tools", I get an error when selecting the "data media" option saying:
"The files required by this program cannot be found."
Note 1: I installed Ubuntu 10.04 alongside the original OS (Windows 7). Could this have messed with the recovery partition somehow?
Note 2: The HD isn't faulty or anything, I'm just giving the computer to someone else and want to restore it to factory settings first.
Note 3: On my new X220 tablet, if I press the ThinkVantage button when prompted, no menu comes up at all! Instead, it just goes to Grub (again, I am dual-booting Ubuntu). But if I open "Lenovo ThinkVantage Tools" and run the "Factory Recovery Disks" program, creating the boot media and data media DOES work.
