WIndows 7 Home Basic download for Lenovo z580

2014-07-04, 9:16 AM
I tried to recover my PC to factory settings using the CD's that I had created with OneTouch Recovery software. However the recovery failed - perhaps due to scratches in the disk. 
 
My laptop came with Windows 7 Home Basic (64 bit).
 
A question that I have is whether there is a way to get a copy of the OS (I have the serial key with me on a sticker pasted under the laptop). I would really appreciate any help.
 
Thank you.

hi Lamb_1803,

 

Welcome to the Forums.

 

As an alternative to the Recovery Discs that you created, have you tried pressing the OneKey Recovery button to restore the system?

 

If that doesn't work, your options are:

1. Call lenovo to obtain a copy of the recovery disc (recommended)

2. Create a Windows 7 Universal Installation Disc and use it to install Win7 Home Basic.

 

In an event that the disc is still not being read (possibly due to a defective ODD lens), consider creating a Bootable Windows 7 Installation USB Flash Drive to install the OS.

 

 

Regards
