Hello to everyone!
I would like to ask you guys for a bit of assistance.
I recently bought a 2nd hand Lenovo ThinkCentre M82, as much as i like the machine i would love to make it as if it was straight out of the box (software wise). The problem is it came without the original HDD. I bought a SSD and i'm planning on installing Windows 7. How should i go about in doing so ? I want to have the recovery partition and all the things that the original HDD had. Like when you clicked on your system information and it had the Lenovo logo and stuff.
Thanks in advance

The best method would be to order a Product Recovery CD, DVD or USB from Lenovo and use it to reinstall the factory software.
How can I get a Product Recovery CD, DVD or USB from Lenovo

There really is not way to get all the factory Lenovo functionality you are seeking since you do not have the origional HD, so your only other option would be to install Windows from sratch and lose the recovrey parition, or find someone who has the recovery media for a M82 that will let you use thier disk.
It looks like you may be from Brazil, and for some reason it does not appear that Lenovo is shipping there.... not sure why they would not do so., but you may have to call support to find out for sure..

Well i hoped that they may've been away around that. I will try to get my hands on a recovery disk then.
Thanks again for the help.
