Restore and Recovery for Lenovo thinkpad Edge 14

Hello All,


I have an issue in restoring my laptop to factory settings.

- I tried pressing F11 and goes to option to restore to factory settings. But when i click it it gives me a message that "Please restart your computer to open the recovery mode. Restart the system now?" when I press ok it just turn on the laptop and nothing happens.

- I tried pressing F8 and when i go to Repair my Computer option it just loads windows and turn on the laptop

- I have created the recovery disc but that is also not helping me to restore my laptop.


Someone please assist.


Thank you -

Hello Gaurav,


The recovery from hard disk is not working as hard disk partition is modified. In this scenario the recovery can be done from recovery disc.

Please boot the system with recovery disc 1 and check. If you get any error message then please share the message.



Best regards,
