How to restore factory settings from Rescue and Recovery Partition?

Hi I am new to forum and have very limited computer knowledge.

 

I need to restore my Thinkpad edge 15 to factory settings but when I press enter to interupt normal setup, Rescue and Recovery workspace doesn't open. All I get is 3 options: to start up from temporary backup disc or something like that, enter BIOS setup, or enter normal startup.

 

How can I access the Rescue and Recovery Workspace to access Full Restore? Any advice or help would be very much appreciated...PLEASE!

Hello mate,

 

Press F11 instead of enter.

I have the exact same issue with a T61p running Vista. I only have those 3 options. Any other idea how I can access Rescue and Recovery?

 

Thanks.
