X220 factory restore issue with Rescue and Recovery

I have X220 which I enjoyed very much for the last one year. Warranty is just expired and unfortunately the system starts act crazy. I decided to reformat and go back to factory setting stage by using Rescue and Recovery. I could get to the Full Restore and could click full factory restore. The system ask me to restart but instead reformat the HD, the previous OS kicks in and reboot as previous setting. Please help!!!

Do you have Lenovo_Recovery patrition (Q: ) with several .wim files on that? Or do you have Factory_Recovery Media (CD+3xDVD or USB stick) with factory image?

I don't have cd and dvd. But I have Q drive. Q drive must have something inside but I don't see anything if I open the drive.

Are you sure Q: partition is absolutely empty? Normally .WIM files on partition Q: are stored in hidden directory FactoryRecovery.
Check out Lenovo Factory Recovery Discs within Control Panel for creating factory image media.
