SL500 restore problem

Hello,

 

I have SL500 for about 9 months, because I needed to restore Windows Vista I burned restore disks. Everything gone fine,Lenovo burning application burned all three disk without errors and did the verifications for them.

 

When I booted up with first disk, Lenovo restorer asked me for some additional disks, I have no such disk - so I pressed I have no disk and the restore process continued without errors to second and third disk.

 

But after reboot there is only message "BOOTMGR is missing" - press ctrl+alt+del.

 

Is there some chance how to restore Windows Vista from these three disks or does Lenovo offer Windows Vista restore CD for SL500?

 

Thanks for any advice.

Re: SL500 restore problem

Dear friend

I am shocked of this bad LENOVO technology

I suffer to make new partitions

I want to setup ubuntu beside windows in another partition , I also suffer

Then the same problem occurred when I tried to recover my system. DVDs didn't work. The Q: partitions is seen by DOS but neither the F11 nor blue key  works !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


What is this bad technology. We are not children . I NEED THE WINDOWS VISTA SOURCE CD ALONE, I PURCHASED IT AND I NEED A SEPARATE WINDOWS VISTA CD AND A BACKUP CD TO ADD THE LENOVO DRIVERS OR A BACKUP DVD WITH NO DAM RESTRICTIONS. 


I AM REALLY ANNOYED OF THIS ATTITUDE IN DISTRIBUTING THE LAPTOP WITHOUT A READY MADE DVD. I SUFFER TO CALL SERVICE CENTER OF LENOVO IN EGYPT AS THIS IS A HOLIDAY!!!! I LOST THREE DAYS IN THIS HASSLE AND I LOST MY WORK


THIS IS A VERY BAD ATTITUDE.


I NEED MY COPY OF WINDOWS VISTA AND MY RECOVERY DVD.
