Hey 8an,

 

will I'll be able to use factory restore withoute the recovery drive? If your talking about the recovery partition then no.

 

Is it possible to restore the system without recovery drive? No unless you have a burnt .ISO image or a back up on external hard drive.

 

Is it possible to download the backup drive? For your computer from say lenovo? No only the Thinkvantage tool that would help you make the back up.

 

Can I use restore disks that was bearn on another computer exactly the same model? Yes you could you might have a driver issues.

 

Best Regards,

 

Hiro
