Lenovo 3000 N200: need to reinstall WinXP, but dont know how to access the Recovery Partition

My Windows XP installation needs serious cleaning :/

 

As far as I know there's a way to re-install the WinXP that came with the Notebook, right?

 

I see in PartitionMagic, that there seems to be a serviceV002 Partition which seems to hold these files....

 

However: HOW EXACTLY do I initiate this :/ ?

 

Thanks for your help...

use recovery discs if you have or try to burn them under windows then use it.

do you have new volume under my computer?

lenovo doesn't provide discs unless you order some.

you could've burnt the discs before.

 

options for you, you can call lenovo and order recovery discs to perform clean windows installation or ship it back to lenovo and they will do it for you. ( lenovo may charge you )
