thinkpad edge 0578 possibly incomplete recovery disks

My gf said her lenovo is getting slow so I decided to get her an SSD and do a fresh install of win7 on it. She has 3 DVDs created which I believe believe from the lenovo Rescue and recovery software.They are


DVD1) lenovo recovery boot.

DVD2) lenovo recovery data1.

DVD3) lenovo recovery data2.


I swapped in the SSD  and booted with the DVD labeled as "recovery boot" and i enter the lenovo recovery screen with 3 options

1) quick restore (grayed out, cant be selected)

2) full restore

3) rescue files.


I chose full restore and select DVD/CD to locate backup , but it didn't find anything. I subsequently put in DVD2 and DVD3 , it didn't find any backup and prompted for a "final C" DVD. At this point I'm thinking GF didn't create her recovery disk properly. I popped in her original HDD and try to create another recovery disk but it says it can only be done once.

Do you think she's missing a final C disk? 
Is there a way to move forward with installing win 7 on her SSD besides recovery DVD from lenovo?

Her laptop model is thinkpad edge 0578 , win 7 home edition. she bought it 2 years ago and it's probably out of warranty.
