Recovery problems and windows version



My lenovo recovery discs are corrupted and I need to reinstall my system.  Can someone tell me exactly what version of windows the T61-7664-19G has preinstalled? 


I have almost every version of windows on disc at home but the version name on the certificate of authenticity has rubbed off.  I can still clearly see the product key though.  If someone can tell me what version, I can intall it using the product key on the CofA making it a legal copy.


Please help!


Thanks, Ian

Re: Recovery problems and windows version

ian, welcome to the forum,


what leads you to believe your recovery discs are corrupt? Is it that you are booting from the boot disc and when it asks for the next disc you click "yes" and then it says "wrong disc"? If so, try clicking on "no".


The COA number is volume licence key, it should work with a OEM system builder cd.
