How to recover original OS when different OS was installed

Hello everyone,

 

I have a problem with my Thinkpad x201. Original OS was Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit on the main data partition and therefore i lost my original OS. But the recovery partition and the smal 1GB partition (system_drv) are still intact! Now i cant access recovery partition in windows, nor i can access it via ThinkVantage button on startup.

I found something on similar issue - linux installed, but not windows.

So can i recover original OS and how to do it without buying recovery discs?

 

Thank you for help.
