accidently deleted my recovery disc...

Hi.

 

I got a lenovo thinkpad edge 15" 0301 J6G. With Windows 7

 

The other day I messed up, I installed a program, but I installed it in the wrong direction, so I un-install it. AND some more program files in the same folder. That was not my intention, off course.

 

Trying to fix the problem I looked in to the rescue and recovery options. When I tryed to create a recovery disc the computer got stuck and nothing happened, so after a while I canceled the operation. Now I can't create a recovery disc anymore as there are some files missing.

 

Is there now other way I can reinstall windows that was in the computer?

Press F11 at boot to see if you can get into the ThinKVantage recovery environment. You should be able to restore from there.
