"restore to factory defaults" missing

2008-02-14, 23:18 PM
Hello!! I have updated Rescue and Recovery (RNR) to ver 4.20.xxx using SystemUpdate - all went smooth and wothout any problems. As soon as I have started RNR I read "an advice" I should create new set of discs (recovery discs - RD). So I did. Everything was fine until I have pressed the blue button during system boot - I noticed that "restore to factory defaults" is missing from Restore System!! I am still able to use RD, but than I am forced to carry them with me "just in case" something happens with my R61i. I was happy with "blue button restore", but not anymore, since update. konrad.

Hi, I had the exact same issue, though I'm can't say for sure it was caused by the same thing (not my laptop, was brought in with this issue). From your post, i thought it may be something to do with the RNR software, so I simply removed it from add/remove programs and rebooted the system. Now the "Restore to factory defaults" option has returned. Running the recovery now, but so far so good.
