Rescue discs for enterprise?

My company is starting to purchse a number of E520 Thinkpads for our mobile users.  The resuce disc instructions have me creating 3 or 4 DVD's for each machine.  Will one set of rescue discs work across all our ThinkPad E520's?  or do I need to burn 3 or 4 DVD's for each laptop?

Re: Rescue discs for enterprise?

Hi MikeinIT, welcome to the forum,


if the systems have the same or very similar MTMs the discs should infact work without problems.  Probably the easiest way to confirm this, for peace of mind, would be to grab a spare hard drive and test a set you've aöready created.


Hope this helps
