ThinkPad Tablet 2 (TPT2): Accessing Win 8 System Recovery during startup
How can I access the Windows 8 System Recovery Options on a ThinkPad Tablet 2 during startup?
In order to access the ThinkPad Tablet 2's System Recovery Option menu from startup, you will first need to begin with the machine completely powered down. As you power up the machine press and hold the power button, and then immediately begin tapping the Volume Down button until the Please Wait message appears underneath the Lenovo Splash.
You will see a display with a language selection, followed by a keyboard selection. From here you will have multiple options, and you will need to navigate to the Troubleshoot option to view different Recovery Options, such as Refresh and Reset your PC, and some more advanced options such as System Restore.
