Recovery disks, boot disks etc

Following Mark's suggestion in the shipping thread I thought I'd get this started here.  I noticed a couple of people talking about making recovery disks, and then someone else jumped in and said that a bootable disk and maybe a few others should have come with the machine.  Can someone clarify?  Were we supposed to get (for example) an XP boot/install CD with the machine, or not?  I got nothing with mine, but I have a whole bunch of extra stuff on the hard drive.

Re: Recovery disks, boot disks etc

Generally no recovery cds/dvds are included in the box. It would appear that sometimes there have been XP recovery sets included with some Vista TPs, but this is not the "rule". Sets can be ordered from Lenovo and may be liable to cost something.
It is up to the user to create his/her own recovery set using the tool provided in -Start - Programs - Think Vantage - Create Recovery Media. Be sure to create a set, lower part of the window, and not just a boot cd, upper part of the window.
