R61 Rescue and Recovery

I have Lenovo Thinkpad R61 (Product Code: 8932CTO) originally packaged with Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic. I have purchased a new copy of Microsoft Windows 7 Professional & installed it successfully.But, still if i use the blue thinkvantage button to restore my pc, it restore to Vista.

 

Can i update the inbuilt recovery system so that it restores my PC to my current setting (Windows 7) if i need to do so later on.

the answer is no, you could only create a win 7 restore partition with a win 7 lenovo rescue and recovery discs, which you will not able to purchase.
