How to recover original OS after disk lost

I have installed a dual boot  (Windows/Linux) on my Lenovo X1 Carbon and for a stupid mistake erased all disk boot sector and partition table. How can I install the system the way it came from factory with the original Windows and Lenovo utilities?

Re: How to recover original OS after disk lost

You can contact support.  If its under warranty see below link.  If its out of warranty I believe you can still call support but they will charge you $45-$60.  Its been a while so I dont remember the exact charge.  You can download recovery media only 1 time.|Coupon
