Thinkpad T410 Missing Restore Partition

Hi,

 

Recently purchased used T410 (Warranty until October 2013), just found that there is no restore partition on the HDD, checked everything, in My Computer and Disk Management, but it’s not there, is there anyone know how to get Recovery DVDs or anyone has a copy?

 

Thanks

Re: Thinkpad T410 Missing Restore Partition

mcnorman, welcome to the forum,

 

was your system shipped with an OS or a DOS license? Have you performed a "clean" install of Windows from a disc?

 

Maybe you could post the type and model number

It seems, that the previous owner erased the HDD and installed a Windows new from MS DVD.

 

You can order a recovery DVD set from Lenovo:
