Need help to restore factory settings on T510 thinkpad.

2010-10-14, 1:26 AM

I accidently clobbered one of my windows partitions when installing linux. to my knowledge I still have the recovery partition. But, I dont know how to access it, in order to restore my system. If someone could give me step by step instructions of how to do this from startup, I would appreciate it greatly.

Lenovo ThinkVantage gives you an option to create recovery discs:- http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-68317, this is the first thing to do when you receive your system. If you haven't created them then you need to buy them from lenovo for a fee, sorry.
