I have now given it to my pc ready man I recorded recovery discs today
And he is trying to get the recovery cds onto it but nothing is working at all.

My pc man thinks they have sent me the wrong discs but have checked the paper work and says it's right how many discs should there be please I have ones that are saying d1....d2...d3...d4
On the paper work that was with them today it is saying this.....

Hi If the computer was set with Windows 8 or 8.1
You will need to set the BIOS first for the disc to be reconized.
You will need to change these
Secure Boot = Disabled
Boot Mode: Auro or Legacy
Boot Priority: Legacy First
OS Optimized Defaults / OS optimization = Other OS or Disabled
2. When done, press F10 to save and exit then press F12 when you see the Lenovo Logo. If successful, you should see the CD/DVD drive on the boot list and you should be able to boot from the Recovery CD Disc 1
Hope this helps
