question about rescue and recovery disk

thanks for taking time to read this....


i have a lenovo N500 and it has become unbootable.  i have looked at the rescue/recovery disk set i made when i first got the computer and am tempted to use it.  however, i'm not sure if it wipes the drive or gives me a chance to repair the drive first.

Re: question about rescue and recovery disk

hi nworbekim,


Welcome to Lenovo Communityf Forums!


If your Os is Windows 7


  If you use the One Key Recovery / Create Recovery CD / Initial Backup

Then it would load the system back to that state deleting all current Data and files on Drive C:


as an alternative...


Check this thread for downloading a Windows 7 ISO and burn it into DVD as bootable.



Use that and start it as you'll install an OS, then you will reach a page like this



Choose the repair your computer option to repair your non bootable Windows.


Best Regards
