X201: Recovery to factory state failed

Hi all,

 

I just tried to reset my x201 to factory state (Win 7 prof. 64Bit) from HDD.

I pressed the blue ThinkVantage duttom during start up and followed the instructions.

After copying the data, the recovery tool asked me for a reboot.

 

But the boot process stops with the message: "Windows failed to start"

 

Any ideas about the reason?

How to proceed?

 

Of course I don't have a Windows installation disk...

 

Many thanks,

Thomas

OK, problem solved with a linux usb stick.

The boot flag was set to the wrong partition.

I changed this with cfdisk, and now it works.

 

Strange, I never changed anything in the partition table.

So this should be a popular problem.

But I could not find anything via google.
