T61 hard drive crashed Rescue and Recovery doesn't work

2015-06-21, 20:03 PM

My HD appears to locked up. The HDD diag. gets a read error right from the jump.I can go into Rescue and Recovery but clicking on any of the options doesn't do anything Neither in the top bar or side bar. So it appears I will be replacing the HD. And installing a new OS. I needed to upgrade from XP any way.

My Question is once I install a new HD, which perferably will be a SSD, how do I set it up for the Thinkadvange tool?

I would like to to have the recovery and other options available through the Blue button?
