T450s Recovery USB after low level format

I have windows 7 pro downgradable rights from windows 10. I had to do low level format on my HDD. I did a bootable recovery USB before formatting.

Tried booting with it, it is booting normally, but it is showing that there is no operating system image on the computer. While on the USB there is factoryrecovery folder with large SWM files. is there is a way to reset the computer to the factory defaults?

I don't understand.  Had you already downgraded from windows 10?  Was your machine delivered with 10 or 7?  What did you use to make the recovery USB?

Re: T450s Recovery USB after low level format

It was delivered with Windows 7. And I have created recovery usb with Lenovo media recovery application. 

After the low format the usb boots successfully but during the install it comes out that there is no images found. While on the usb it has around 10 GB with factory recovery folder contains swm files.

i want to factory reset the laptop but I don't know how.
