Hi all. I'm new to the forums. This is my first Thinkpad and I'm enjoying it. I've been playing around with trying to dual boot, running linux from usb, shrinking the main partition, etc.. Somewhere along the way some things got messed up. I haven't owned a laptop in quite sometime. I booted into recovery mode and reset Windows to factory settings but for some reason now it's worse than before. Is there a way I can literally restore this laptop to the way it was when I took it out of the box? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks so much.

Hello and welcome,
The quickest and easiest fix is to use the recovery media you made before modifying the partitions.
Failing that, you can order media from support:
