I have an IBM A31 and I want to use the rescue and recovery partition, when I boot the system there is no option to press F11 or the Thinkpad button and nothing happens when i press either of them. Also when i go to the bios startup section the IBM Product Recovery Program Prompt (F11 key message) says it is enabled and it is grayed out and can not be selected. Also I am 100% sure that the rescue and recovery partition is still on the HDD. Any help would be great.

Welcome to the forum!
From what you're describing, the recovery partition is gone. You'll need a set of restore disks to set it up again.
