Unable to restore from DVD set - ThinkPad keeps rebooting to Rescue and Recovery screen



Lenovo x140e laptop / 2.05 BIOS:

I have used Lenovo Rescue / Recovery to make a full disk image backup to DVDs for installation of SSD drive.


Attempting to boot from Rescue / Recovery DVD appears to load Windows files, start Windows then goes to this Lenovo R&R screen:


No menus show up asking to restore anything, in about 5 seconds it shuts down and reboots again over and over.


I did have BIOS 2.01 and upgraded it using Lenovo BIOS boot DVD upgrader, now is 2.05 and same result.


Factory reset would be OK, but tI paid extra for Windows 7 pro "downgrade" (ironic, no?) that I would like to keep.  System restore disks that came with theunit are for Windows 8.1 .




Here is complete laptop box label:

New SSD passes diagnostic tests:
