T61 recovery hidden partition lost

2010-12-12, 21:26 PM

Hi guys!

I have a T61. I bought it a year before without recovery cds .when I wanted to restore orginal factory from recovery hidden partition but failed. there was a problem "couldn't find convert.cmd. I looked for solution on many forums, they said the problem caused by bad files accessing. But i till could access files on the hidden partition by using some softwares. i made a rescue media cd and try with this way. the result, my hard drive formatted and the hidden partition gone.

Please show me what i should have done?

Xin Chao 


I live in Hoi An, Quang Nam and use a T61.

Where do you live now?


Is your problem fixed now?

Hello mate,


Order the recovery disks from Lenovo and reinstall your system with them.
