Oddly the first thing I would recommend for you to do is make a backup of your system before proceeding.

 

Then download and install the appropriate R&R and its patches for your operating system. Win 7 uses 4.3 while Vista and Xp use version 4.21. You can find them and their patches  here.

 

Remember backup first then test. Let us know how you go!

Hi,
the direct answer is NO, you can use RnR application in the supported way only on Lenovo machines.
Of course there are ways on how to get this work, but they are not supported and you might get into trouble with your system performance if you do so.

In case you are interested, then Lenovo offersalso an OEM version of RnR , which is configured to work correctly also on non-Lenovo systems. Of course this is not for free.

Let me know if you have any add questions.

Cheers
