Is the Vista ThinkVantage rescue disc bootable?

2008-02-04, 18:20 PM
I was reading the "downgrade to XP Pro" document from Lenovo (http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-68317).  I just wonder whether the Vista rescue/recovery CD/DVD created from this process is  bootable?  I will be bringing my X61 oversea and would need a set of discs in the cases where the harddrive fail (or when I do a harddrive upgrade).

yes it is bootable.... you could even put in a brandnew harddrive and using these discs you could create restore your computer to factory default condition.... handy if your harddrive broke down for some reason...
