Windows XP Restore

2009-06-02, 22:05 PM

I wanted to reinstall Windows XP on my r61. When I did, windows installed but all the thinkpad features are missing (the wireless internet connection, productivity center, the battery icon, etc.). How can I restore it to it's original factory settings without the recovery CD (I don't have one)? I tried pressing the blue button during boot up and it didn't work either.

 

Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

you are going to have to get a set of recovery disc from lenovo you can  try using the f11 key at power up the image might be there when you get it back to factory condition you can make a set of disc using the create recovery media in the thinkvantage folder
