Fresh Win7 Pro installation on SL510 with new HDD

2013-10-11, 8:47 AM

Hello,

 

after swaping the crashed old HDD to a new SSD and contacting the support (at lenovo-recovery):

I got 2 disks from Lenovo-recovery.

Trying to install Win7 fails (with disk 1) with the following error message:

 

Runtime Error

Program: X:\preboot\recovery\RECOVERY.EXE

 

Its trying run "rescue and recovery" apparently.

Is it looking for some old recovery files on the hard drive maybe that it naturally cannot find?

Is it the wrong CD?

All I need is a simple installation routine for Win7, no rescue or recovery.
