I created the factory recovery disks for a x220. The process resulted in four DVD disks but when I boot with the first one it asks for the final disk and no disk is recognized as the final one.
Do you know what I am doing wrong?

Are you selecting to restore to factory as opposed to restore to an image? Choosing the latter will require the last disc after the boot disc, the former will ask for disc two.
Depending on the R&R version please check to see if there is an option on the first screen for "advanced", or similar, in the left pane at the bottom, (may require scrolling), and select this first.

I can't see those options with the DVD set only and a new hard drive. If I try to follow your workflow with the original hard drive installed it gives me the options and a Windows operating system is recognized but this is not what I want to do:
I have a new blank hard drive and want to install the factory operating systems with it. I don't have any option to proceed in this case.
Do you know how I can do it?

I am having the exact same issue with my T430s! My original hard drive is dying so I got a new one. I boot with the first DVD (the "boot media") and it only goes to the system image option, and doesn't recognize any of the three data DVDs! How can I access R&R to restore to factory settings? wslh, did you ever figure this out?
