Initiating Recovery Media

I created a recovery media disk on an external hard drive.   It's connected by a usb cable.


How can I initiate the program to restore my laptop to the factory settings?

Re: Initiating Recovery Media

Have you created recovery media within Lenovo Rescue & Recovery application or factory recovery media using appropriate application Lenovo Factory Recovery Disks? The 1st one if for backup/restore of file, logical drive, entire disk and system. Jusk create a boot media in the 2nd application and use factory recovery media.
