2014-08-04, 22:20 PM

Do I have to purchase the recovery media from Lenovo or is there a download link out here on the Lenovo site?

Hopefully, you've already burned a set of DVDs from the recovery partition. Recovery media is not downloadable. If your old HDD died, and you did not burn the DVDs beforehand, you'll have to contact customer support with your model number and serial number to order a set.

You'll have to ask support ...
