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

Hello:

 

Lenovo x140e laptop / 2.05 BIOS:

(image link removed)

 

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 .

 

Help?

 

Here is complete laptop box label:
