Thinkpad z60m: HDD password [But have Rescue and Recovery Startup Disk & Product Recovery Disks]

2009-08-22, 18:03 PM

Hello,

 

I've lost access to my Thinkpad because of lost password to Hard disk.

Then purchased another HDD and installed OS and drivers. Getting few problems, one is that I cannot use ThinkVantage key to restore my system.

 

But I have Rescue and Recovery Startup Disk & Product Recovery Disks, so can I recover my old HDD?

If not possible to use the old, can I get back my system working[as factory default] with those disks?

 

Thanks.
