Lenovo recovery discs

Good afternoon dear forums-members.  I have received recovery discs for my G70-70 80HW notebook.  Could anyone please tell me how to use this discs after replacing the conventional HDD with an SSD?  I have tried all possible options, but none of them succeeds. Many, many thanks for your kind solutions.  This notebook is driving me crazy in my search to trying install the factory settings.

Re: Lenovo recovery discs

Download your hardware manual and refer to page 23 for the process to restore your factory load out using the Recovery Disk.

Re: Lenovo recovery discs

Good afternoon,

I'm sorry to inform you I have the feeling my dealer has "raped" my notebook G70-70 80HW.  Your appreciated proposals have no effects at all to restore the notebook to factory settings.  I have the original recovery discs, onekey recovery has been deleted and replaced by AOMEI recovery.  In BIOS, I'm not able to change the boot order, the system does not recognize the DVD nor the attached USB harddisk with system backups and restore points.  I still have the original HDD with pre-installed Lenovo software.  Is it possible to make an image file that can be used to restore to factory settings on the SSD disc?  Any suggestions would be very appreciated.  Many thanks, have a nice day.

Re: Lenovo recovery discs

The SSD mostlikely has formatting witih a "hidden partition" installed, one that contains software meant to "clone" an exisiting hard disk drive on first power up.

 

To remove this can be trickey, and depends on the SSD manufacture, generically you could install it into a working computer as a secondary disk, use Disk Manager to wipe out any partitions and then format as NTFS (entire disk).  Once completed, remove the SSD and install into the notebook.

 

At that point you may be able to use the recovery disks.

 

Good luck.

Re: Lenovo recovery discs

Recovery disks may be available for online purchase from Lenovo Support - based on the age of the targeted notebook.

Best bet - contact Lenovo Support via phone to speak with a support rep, they have the complete listing of supported models that still have availability.
