Anyone who's ever posted a question about how to restore the OS has been dancing around the following question, which I now pose.
If one has installed a new hard drive in their ThinkCentre or ThinkPad or somehow managed to delete everything from the original hard drive, the only way I know of to restore the Windows OS and the factory image is to use the Rescue and Recovery CDs or DVDs.
With nothing else to go by, how do the R&R CDs know that the original image, in particular the Windows OS, is being restored to a legitimate system?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thanks, Jay-ho! So, if I understand what you're saying, the program on the recovery disks will first check the see if the PC on which Windows will be restored is a genuine Lenovo or IBM?
