Fail to create Recovery Disks

2011-12-31, 22:48 PM
Hi everyone, Just got my new W520 a month ago, now im trying to make the recovery disks from the dedicated partition. First i only have 2 .wim files: cdrivebackup.wim sdrivebackup.wim i think qdrivebackup.wim is missing. Now when i try to burn the cds it wont let me choose the "boot media" - a missing file. And when i select only the "data media" it let me burn. So what's missing? why it won't let me burn the boot media? BTW there's a support mail for lenovo, or just by phone? Thanks!

You need to call up the support and tell them that the OS won't let you create the recovery media.
