Reinstall windows 7

2019-12-23, 19:36 PM

I have a thinkpad which the hard drive needed replacing. When I went to Microsoft's website they promted me to go to the manufactoror. Does anyone have a link to a tool/directly where I can install the OS from Lenovo? Thanks

Which laptop, please?
For older laptops, you'll need to contact Lenovo Support to discuss recovery media, and it may be no longer available some models.

Also, Windows 7 is about to be discontinued on in Jan 2020, are you sure you want to reinstall Windows 7?
