no disks come with new systme?

2010-01-01, 4:37 AM

Got my Y550 today.

 

No disks included in the package.

 

Shouldn't I at least have a win7 disk? I planned to upgrade hard drive by myself..

 

 

Call lenovo. was told no win7 disk available???  isn't this weird?

Most now don't ship disks with their system ( cost cutting I guess, I have an ACER and a Lenovo and both the same thing ). Good thing they do provide a way to create recovery disks .. Run the One Click Recovery ( or something like that and choose the factory defaults, can't recall cause I have updated my Y450 to Win 7 64 ), you'd need 2 or 3 DVD's to create the recovery disks ( for the Y450 it is 2 ) to put back to factory defaults
