Where to find a recovery disc for free?

2009-02-10, 3:44 AM

My R61i did not work this morning. I guessed it should be hard drive problem.

 

I think that will be a big deal without recovery discs because I forgot to backup the system.

 

I've already bought one new Hitachi hard drive and installed it already.

 

Does anyone know where I can borrow the recovery discs?

 

I know I can get them at ebay. Unfortunately, they are not free.

 

I'm appreciated for any suggestion or feedback. Thanks

is your laptop still under warranty??? If it is a hdd problem and you are within warranty, Lenovo will change the HDD and reload your OS.
